Summary: Graphics are not that bad, I liked the graphics overall. I can't do the quick time events, they are really hard. I was hoping for some hack-n-slash gameplay with lots of monsters. Near the beginning, there is no fighting, just QTE's. Oh, and no PSN trophies either, game is too old (it has trophies in game only). I am very disappointed. Hate QTE's.
Enjoyable Action Sword And Slash Game But Nothing Spectacular

Summary: While the game is an extension of the CGI Animated effects movie of the same title the game itself is actually pretty good for action gamer fans though there really isn't much to either the characters overall or the story of the game still for $20 it's still worth trying out. The game is a mix of God Of War and Assassins Creed with the abilities and fighting styles the character controls in the game though obviously not the same level of entertainment of either games...
Summary: I bought this game for an ungrateful ex-boyfriend of mine. I bought it because I thought the movie was mesmerizing for an ADHD person like me. would have liked to have tried the game. I can't rate this game honestly as he never took the wrapper off of it. Sorry, I guess I should have bought him God of War II which was $45 more...which he still would have been ungrateful for. My suggestion...ladies, let your boyfriend buy his own video games.
Summary: The only reason I picked up this game was because of the $19.99 price tag and the need for some hack 'n slash before God of War 3 (and chains of Olympus) comes out. Beowulf is not a bad game, but it's certainly not a very innovative title. The graphics are on par with a good PS2 game. Some of the controls are a little awkward. Learning the combos is easy (pretty simple button mashing).
Conclusion: A very odd game this one,one minute you're running,then you're stomping crabs,then you're fighting sea monsters and then pushing prompted buttons to get the crew to row the boat and so forth. I did find the HOLY RELIC bit very frustrating (til i realized it helps to get the spear at the beginning of that level,just to the right of the second slide and up the wall if i remember correctly).
Conclusion: If you only play the first level of this game you are bound to walk away with a bad impression, i almost did. Just persavere for an hour or so and the game will really pick up. The combat is quite simple really but some of the battles can be good fun, especially when you're trying to score combos to boost your thaines. Very nice graphics to btw. Although a bit repetative i think its ok overall.
Conclusion: I got this game about a week ago, i first had time to play it last night. The first level is so boring and annoying. But after that it isnt bad atall, yes the graphics aren't great and the gameplay is very repetative but its Â£10! And for that you cant complain at all.
