PS3/Xbox 360 Review - 'Chaotic: Shadow Warriors'
19 January 2010
Summary: Based on the trading card game and animated TV series, Chaotic combines action, role playing and turn-based strategy gameplay elements for an epic adventure in Perim. Players adventure through vibrant, fully-realized 3D environments and interact with various characters from the best-selling trading card game and hit animated series.
Summary: Chaotic: Shadow Warriors is a buggy mess of a game that only hardcore fans of the cartoon should bother with. It’s an odd mix of platformer and turn-based strategy while embracing the most annoying and boring aspects of both. The AI is laughable and you should never lose a single battle in the turn based strategy sections, while the camera angles, unresponsive controls and invisible wall syndrome will leave you uttering profanity at the platformer bits.
Excerpt: , I heard something about “card battling,” at which I winced and almost prayed I’d never see the game in the mail. However, upon starting the game, I quickly realized that such a description was erroneous and this adventure blended action/adventure elements with a turn-based role-playing mechanic. Theoretically, I should love such a concept, especially if the RPG element was deep enough and the platforming and action elements were physically sound.
