  • Excerpt: So I heard they were doing a movie adaptation of "Beowulf," the epic poem written by an anonymous author that many of us read in school. At first, I was a touch concerned, especially considering there really wasn't much to that story besides a very straightforward plot- hero arrives, kills monster,...

Even a merry band of adventurous thanes can't save this quest from ruin.

  • Summary: "Even monsters have a mother," says the cursed Danish king in Ubisoft's new Beowulf: The Game. But unlike monsters, video games have many mothers, and we don't mean just their dev teams. Take Beowulf, for instance.
  • Pros: Your thanes love you, There's plenty of slow-mo bloodletting
  • Cons: It's easy to get stuck, The combat is brainless, Following the story is a quest in itself, You'll find dead ends in every aspect of the game

  • Conclusion: La légende de Beowulf ne restera pas dans la légende de la PlayStation 3 mais amusera le bourrin qui sommeil en nous en attendant un God of War 3. L'aventure ne souffre pas de gros défauts handicapants mais manque juste d'ambition pour devenir un hit.
  • Pros: Bonne adaptation, Quelques bons boss, Plusieurs fins
  • Cons: Manque de souffle épique, Combats peu motivants, Réalisation légère

  • Conclusion: Certo fare un videogioco da un film è sempre una sfida, a volte riesce a volte meno. Beowulf è nella media di un qualsiasi titolo di avventura splatter. In sostanza è apprezzabile, ma consigliato solo agli appassionati del genere.

  • Conclusion: Spelet Beowulf är baserat på filmen Beowulf som är baserad på den legendariska dikten om Beowulf. Det är en mytologisk saga om en hjältekung som krossade otaliga monster, lite av en nordisk Odysseus, och förstås en utmärkt utgångspunkt för såväl en mastig film som ett ösigt spel.
