Koudelka - not a very Welsh name

tom1clare, Ciao
30 June 2003
  • Excerpt: It's 2000 and the selective hype-machine that is the video game media are getting excited about this dark, tricky-to-pronounce project (Infogrammes were also said to have miss-spelt it on a press release!) from the now defunct SNK. Koudelka is the cross-breed of what are probably the two least likely to meet genres on the PlayStation - survival horror and RPG. So it's sort like a cross between Resident Evil and Final Fantasy then? Well, no. It's...just Koudelka really.
  • Pros: Well presented, decent graphics, 4 discs
  • Cons: Dull combat, generally sluggish - pace

Koudelka, not quite sure what it wants to be.

RussWare, Ciao

  • Excerpt: It is only fairly recently that the Survival Horror/RPG sub-genre has started to emerge from its, overcrowded parent markets. Games such as Parasite Eve (import) and Galerians have strived to take the best elements of each style of game and blend them into a winning formula. To an extent, these games have succeeded to do what they set out to and have produced a ample stepping stone for the next wave of Horror RPGs.
  • Pros: Nice cut scenes and an interesting story .
  • Cons: A little short for four CD's .

Just think Resident Evil in the 1800's

WolfLover, Ciao

  • Excerpt: Well, what can I say? Koudelka is set back in the past (1800's) and has a genuine spooky feel. For me it was an impulse buy, I liked the sound of it for anything set in the past must be interesting. It really brings out a scarey feel to it. Let me explain. You have three main characters, the main one of course being Koudelka. It is set in this old abby place, which isn't as it all seems, not going into too much detail.
  • Pros: Spine Chilling Gameplay with an affective storyline also it's pretty cheap .
  • Cons: Slow Storyline at times .

  • Excerpt: Where do I start with this game? Ok it's set in the late 1800's, set in an old Monastary in northen England, Koudelka is the character you start with, the game starts with you meeting Edward, he is dying from being attacked by some kind of creature, shortly after he tells you this, You get attacked by the creature....This is where the adventure begins.
  • Pros: Very dark and Atmospheric, Great music and Graphics
  • Cons: The spells could be more useful .

An epic tale!

Babytiger..., Ciao

  • Excerpt: The intro to this game is very awe inspiring with beautiful music rich in sound making the scnario and atmosphere of the game a mystery. The FMV cinematics a beautifully rendered and enhanced. The game includes wonderfully presented voice overs which capture the players attention and draws him/her into the game.
  • Pros: As soon as it came out it cost me a mere £28 . 50
  • Cons: The longetivity of the game is well .  .  .  not exactly long and that is a bit dissapointing  : (

doesnt work very well

Thechain, Ciao
18 August 2000
  • Excerpt: As an attempt to combine role-playing with a horror story, this game doesn't provide a strong sense of fear in the player. With the slower pace of an RPG, there isn't that frightening quality of making the players jump out of their seat because some decrepit creature of the night came out of nowhere and attacked.
  • Pros: nice idea
  • Cons: doesn't really work

  • Summary: Año 1898 en Gales, Gran Bretaña. Controlas a un grupo de tres personajes, entre ellos la bella medium Koudelka, con la misión de explorar la oscuridad del misterioso monasterio abandonado de Nemeton. Allí te verás envuelto en una enrevesada trama de hechizos y brujería.­­ 3 personajes llenos de personalidad que 'actúan' en un gran escenario.­ Increíbles secuencias de vídeo a pantalla completa y una banda sonora envolvente.
  • Pros: Todas las de un RPG
  • Cons: Ninguna
