Reviews and Problems with Revenge of the Wounded Dragons
Showing 1-10 of 12
Crouching Tiger, Double Dragon
12 July 2011
Conclusion: It's not a terrible game by any means, but it also isn't something you are going to write home about unless you live in a beat 'em up fan club. If you need to smash some skulls, you could do a lot worse. You could also do a bit better.
Excerpt: It seems like there’s a disparity between what people think they want from retro games and what they actually want. It’s the difference between how it was and how you remember it. With Revenge of the Wounded Dragons you get an odd mix of both. The game lets you choose between Easy, Medium and Hard, defaulting to Medium. Medium, at least, is much easier than Bad Dudes was, for example.
Conclusion: Unfortunately, it is hard to recommend Revenge of the Wounded Dragons, even at the low £6.29 asking price. Though by no means a disaster, PS3 owners looking for cheap martial art’s thrills are much better served by something like Rag Doll Kung Fu, which is infinitely more charming, more playable and sports higher production values.
Excerpt: The theme is familiar, and yet those campy kung-fu movies draw viewers back time and again to witness the action. Give Artificial Mind & Movement credit, though, for they captured the essence of the movies – from the retread storyline to the musical score – and transforming it to a platformer on the PlayStation Network. Revenge of the Wounded Dragons is not unique, by any stretch. The story line involves a family trained in kung-fu who is bullied.
Conclusion: For those looking for a new spin on the classic side-scrolling fighting games of old, Revenge of the Wounded Dragons is a good choice. With simply yet fluid controls, solid visuals and solid gameplay mechanics, it’s hard to argue that the game doesn’t provide enough for gamers not to be satisfied with the purchase. For those gamers who grew up playing games like Double Dragon, you will feel right at home with this game.
Conclusion: Not a bad pickup to play through this holiday season with some friends or family, but it doesn't leave that lasting impression that makes you want to come back again and again like the classics of the genre (Final Fight, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Metal Slug).
Excerpt: Revenge of the Wounded Dragons? More like Revenge of Double Dragon. Artificial Mind & Movement's new side-scrolling beat-'em-up is a love letter to the original kung-fu fighter from 1987, right down to the Karate Kid-style brother protagonists in cheesy red and blue fighting togs. And like all good mash notes, this one includes a little bit of creativity: the developers have added some platform jumping, minigames, and basic puzzles to all of the punching-people-out...
Pros: Fast-moving retro feel stays true to old-school beat-'em-ups, Livens up the brawling with platform puzzles, Colorful visuals with impressive depth and detail in backgrounds
Summary: Revenge of the Wounded Dragons je skvělá bojovka na odreagování. Nabízí skvělou zábavu na dlouhé zimní večery, přičemž si vás získá velmi jednoduchou hratelností, ale i pohlednou grafikou. Pokud máte tento žánr rádi, rozhodně si Revenge of the Wounded Dragons pořiďte, vážně stojí za to. Ostatní by měli nad koupí vážně zauvažovat, protože koupit takhle pěknou bojovku za 10 dolarů je něco, co se prostě neodmítá.
Conclusion: Pour moins de 8 €, Revenge of the Wounded Dragons vous permettra de passer un bon moment et ravira les plus nostalgiques. Il est dommage que les développeurs aient, semble-t-il, passé plus de temps à peaufiner l’esprit du jeu et un peu moins sa jouabilité. Nous aurions également apprécié un mode coopération en ligne.
Pros: Le style old-school, Les musiques, Le gameplay défoulant, Les arrière-plans, Le mode coopératif en local
Cons: L’absence du mode coopératif en ligne, Durée de vie un peu juste, La maniabilité d’un autre âge, Les passages plateforme laborieux
