Excerpt: Since season 1, I have always been a huge fan of 24 . Similar to Jeremy Clarkson, everything stops for 24 . The captivating plots, never ending twists and turns, unique direction and use of camera angles are mind blowing. Who cares that each season follows the same basic path; Terrorist blows something up, Jack Bauer gets angry, Kim Bauer gets kidnapped, something else blows up, President gets shot, Terrorist dies in raid, etc.
Excerpt: If 24: The Game does anything really well, it is that it manages to capture the look and feel of the show perfectly. 24: The Game absolutely nails the show’s style, right down to the shaky camera and split screens. The game actually does feel like an actual episode of 24 ; now if only “The Game” parts matched the presentation. All of the characters from the show are modeled with near-life accuracy.
Excerpt: 24 has become one of the biggest TV shows in the world, down to its incredible twisting storylines and frankly ridiculous events. While it's often predictable, it's never anything but entertaining, with Jack Bauer now destined to become one of the most famous TV characters of all time.
Excerpt: To tell the truth, it's kind of strange going back to the early days where relationships were different, other people were in charge of CTU, some characters no longer exist, and others that are now major players once only had bit parts. It's a little more Season 3, though, as it sets up Chase's arrival in LA and he plays a pivotal role in the events of the game.
Summary: 24: The Game gets the <i>24</i>-part right, but the game-part comes crumbling down very quickly.
Pros: A sharply written storyline that's at least as good as what the show typically offers, Stylishly directed cutscenes, Great voice acting
Cons: Gameplay has too many cooks in the kitchen, and none of them are very good, Driving missions are just plain awful, Too many minigames that only barely qualify as actual games, Frequent animation glitches, In-game camera is terrible
Excerpt: For the past 4 years, 24 has thrilled its viewers with heart pounding action and drama that no other series can match. Terrorists trying to start a war with the US never gets old. Kind of ironic they only go after California and how the President seems to be there more than in DC. Moving on though, with this series being a widely popular one, you would have very high hopes for the game when it was released.
