Spare Parts Review

G4
3 February 2011
  • Summary: Spare Parts is cute, but derivative and unpolished. There are some neat powers and level design, but poor platforming, repetitive combat, and a wayward camera hinder the experience. It's not without its charms and can be enjoyable, but there's nothing in here that hasn't been done better before.
  • Pros: Slick animations, Fun powers, High-fives!
  • Cons: Spotty platforming, Frustrating and broken camera, Too much repetitive combat near the end

Spare Parts Review

GameSpot
26 January 2011
  • Excerpt: Perhaps "Spare Parts" wasn't the best name for EA Bright Light's newest downloadable platformer. The name all too often highlights the clunky way this online and offline cooperative journey borrows liberally from Ratchet & Clank and misuses the considerable voice talents of Simon Pegg, resulting in a fairly brief experience that feebly parrots aspects of much better 3D platformers.
  • Pros: Colorful, lively characters and environments, Excellent though ill-used narration by Simon Pegg
  • Cons: Poor camera in cooperative mode, Repetitive button-mashing gameplay, Imprecise controls

  • Conclusion: On a technical level, Spare Parts runs fine on both the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 with few differences between the two, although certain textures are slightly crisper on the Xbox 360. (We did, however, experience two lockups on the second boss while playing on the Xbox 360.) But spare yourself the disappointment of playing this underwhelming platformer.
  • Pros: Colorful, lively characters and environments, Excellent though ill-used narration by Simon Pegg.
  • Cons: Poor camera in cooperative mode, Repetitive button-mashing gameplay, Imprecise controls.

EA Bright Light Delivers Charm To Spare But Scrimps On Gameplay

Game Informer
24 January 2011
  • Conclusion: Concept: Explore a hostile planet with robots; gaining new upgrades and abilities to access new areas Graphics: Characters are great looking and well animated, as are the environments Sound: Compositions are appropriately lighthearted, and Simon Pegg’s turn as a friendly AI is warm and inviting Playability: The fixed camera hurts the platforming sections, and boss battles last entirely too long Entertainment: Spare Parts’ abundance of charm doesn’t save it from the dodgy...

Spare Parts Review (PS3, PSN)

Yet Another Review Site
19 February 2011
  • Excerpt: The third wheel of the downloadable bandwagon It seems that in order to revert the bad image space as been given in the recent months thanks to Dead Space 2 and Mass Effect 2 , EA has set out to make the cutesiest, jumpiest, most simple platformer they could that only just about dodges a lawsuit with Ratchet & Clank . Enter Spare Parts , a sweetly innocent collect-’em-up about space wide adventures that has little ambition to reach any stars.
  • Pros: Crisp and colourful graphics, Great voice work by Simon Pegg
  • Cons: Very short lifespan, Linear adventure with basic obstacles to overcome, Little incentive to return and grab all the collectables on offer

  • Conclusion: "Spare Parts" não é um jogo ruim, pelo contrário, suas fases são bem planejadas e a mecânica de encontrar e utilizar novas peças para explorar o cenário em busca de itens e tesouros é agradável e divertida, principalmente para os jogadores mais jovens. O que faltou ao game da Electronic Arts, em sua primeira investida, foi personalidade própria e uma dose maior de carisma para seus protagonistas robóticos.

Review: "Spare Parts" (PS3)

gamingxp.com
13 February 2011
  • Excerpt: Zwei gestrandete Roboter, ein Bordcomputer, ein kaputtes Raumschiff und eine große Menge an Ersatzteilen, die gefunden werden müssen. Die Geschichte ist schnell erzählt, aber wie sieht es mit dem Gameplay aus? Lesen Sie alles darüber in unserem Review! Die zwei Roboter Mar-T und Chip sind unglücklich auf einem Planeten abgestürzt. Um diesen verlassen zu können, müssen Sie ein marodes Raumschiff, welches sie gefunden haben, wieder flugtauglich machen.
  • Pros: Abwechslungsreiches Setting, Niedliche Charaktere, Auch für Jüngere, Einfache Steuerung, Koop-Modus...
  • Cons: …der leider nicht optimal ist, Fixe Kamera, Kurze Spielzeit, Kurze Levels

  • Conclusion: Spare Parts basiert auf einem altbekannten Spielkonzept, das in anderen Action-Adventures schon wesentlich besser umgesetzt wurde, wenn auch zumeist ohne Roboterhelden: Man hüpft durch die Gegend, verkloppt böse Viecher und sammelt nebenbei Münzen und anderes Zeug. Das Aktionsteile- und Upgrade-System sorgt immerhin für ein wenig Abwechslung im Spielgeschehen, Grafik und Story sind aber nichts Besonderes.
