Conclusion: Time Crisis: Razing Storm is a gaming packaging that brings together both ends of the quality spectrum. Two out of the three games are worth your time and money, and if you can fully ignore the third then you're laughing. If you already own a copy of Time Crisis 4 then don't bother with this - otherwise, this may well be the multiplayer shooter you've been looking for.
Excerpt: Time Crisis: Razing Storm is a shooter that comes with two other games: Time Crisis 4 and Deadstorm Pirates. All three games are shooters, but theoretically Razing Storm allows for more environmental exploration, only not really. It's not actually a rail game like the others, but the environment you can explore is fairly narrow. Instead of a rail shooter, it's more like a hallway shooter. And there is a plot to Razing Storm.
Excerpt: I could probably pad a review of Time Crisis: Razing Storm with a couple hundred words of flowing, waxing nostalgia about how brilliant and significant the original Time Crisis was all those years ago (I have just done it inadvertently - oops), but it would have little bearing on Razing Storm. Instead, it's probably Metal Gear Solid 4 that Namco is riffing off, packing its game with leaping mechs, a washed-out desert future, and sickeningly overbearing melodrama.
Excerpt: Time Crisis: Razing Storm is an odd release for the Time Crisis line. Not only does it offer a few new modes that stray away from the license's core mechanic, but it also throws in a couple of extra games, one of which has already been fully released on the PS3, albeit, not with PlayStation Move support, like the Time Crisis 4 found on Razing Storm 's disc. Razing Storm itself has a few different modes, and in pretty much all cases, they are eye-catching.
Conclusion: Time Crisis : Razing Storm offre certes trois jeux dans un seul et même blu-ray, il n'en reste pas moins très court et propose finalement assez peu de challenge, si ce n'est dans les classements enregistrés en ligne ou l'acquisition de trophées. Assez intéressant à deux joueurs en coopération l'espace d'une partie ou deux, les trois titres de Namco Bandai perdent rapidement de leur intérêt sur le long terme.
Pros: Trois jeux dans un disque, Les possibilités coopératives, Deadstorm Pirates
Cons: Durée de vie très limitée, Gameplay médiocre du mode histoire de Razing Storm, Multijoueur de piètre qualité, Qualité graphique vraiment limite
Excerpt: Going back to the glory days of light guns, Time Crisis Razing Storm merges this traditional shooting genre with the latest PlayStation Move technology that creates an interesting hybrid that works on some levels and misses on others. The biggest problem with just about all the light gun games on the PlayStation 2 and 3 were the finishing times.
Conclusion: It's an average maiden voyage for the series on the PlayStation Move. When taken together as a whole package, however, the bad outweighs the good. It can be salvaged with a friend, but you have to cherry pick what to play to enjoy this title.
Conclusion: Concept: Utilize PlayStation Move to deliver old and new experiences in the Time Crisis franchise
Graphics: On par with Time Crisis 4’s arcade release, which nowadays isn’t saying much
Sound: Even for the genre, the voice acting is absurdly bad
Playability: The aiming is spot-on in Time Crisis 4 and Deadstorm Pirates, but Razing Storm’s control scheme is a mess
Entertainment: This compilation offers plenty of content, most of which is enjoyable
