Conclusion: Length and untrustworthy difficulty are the only minor problems here. You can finish the game in four or five hours, depending on how often you get killed and have to retreat to the start of a level with a continue. Length seems padded, too, because you only have three continues per game, and when they're gone, you have to start from scratch. This is a great game, but there are better deals out there for $15.
Pros: Challenging level design with lots of intricate jumping puzzles, Wide range of attacks and enemies keeps you on your toes, Distinctive, cartoony graphics.
Cons: Falls short of justifying its $15 purchase price, Difficulty bounces around in spots.
Summary: Jetpacks and opossums probably wouldn't mix too well in the real world, but the offbeat combo is a match made in heaven in Rocket Knight. Climax Studios has done an outstanding job with this sequel to Rocket Knight Adventures, a Sega Genesis platformer that developed a cult following during the goofy animals craze in the early '90s--that bygone era when everybody was ripping off Sonic the Hedgehog.
Pros: Challenging level design with lots of intricate jumping puzzles, Wide range of attacks and enemies keeps you on your toes, Distinctive, cartoony graphics
Cons: Falls short of justifying its $15 purchase price, Difficulty bounces around in spots
Conclusion: Concept: Revive the 16-bit classic as an all-new downloadable adventure
Graphics: Environments and characters benefit greatly from the sharp new 2.5D look
Sound: No immediately memorable tunes, but the music fits the mood
Playability: Controls are sharp, allowing you to traverse the devious platforming sections with relative ease
Entertainment: It’s certainly a shorter title, but there’s some incentives for completionists
Conclusion: Rocket Knight is a revival done right. A lot of love went into making this game and you can certainly tell. However, it’s difficult to recommend due to the high price point ($14.99/£9.99/€12.99). Considering how you can beat the game within 2 hours, that’s just not cool. If you don’t care about the cost, by all means, buy Rocket Knight. You’ll enjoy what the game has to offer and want more. For everyone else? It might be best to wait for a price drop.
Conclusion: Если в наших широтах символ трусливости — заяц, то, например, в Америке — опоссум. Вероятно, зверьки прослыли малодушными из-за своей привычки «умирать» всякий раз, завидев хищника. Но в видеоиграх из кого угодно сделают героя... Еще в далеком 1993 году эксклюзивно для Sega вышла . Не совсем обычная аркада от незаурядного разработчика и с оригинальным персонажем. Успех был громким, и все последующие проекты серии также пользовались популярностью.
Pros: очень бодрый игровой процесс; разнообразные уровни; красивая картинка; удобное управление.
Cons: игру приходится порой начинать с самого начала.
