Alter Echo – Review

GameCritics.com
21 November 2003
  • Excerpt: I just can't sleep nights. I work hard, I live a clean life (at least, clean compared to some) and when I get home at the end of a long day, there's nothing I like better than a good night's rest. I'm denied that peace, though. In fact, I wonder how anyone can sleep with videogames in the state they are. One factor more than any other has led them down a sad, downward spiral into the funk they've been in for years. It's the elephant in the room that nobody talks about.

  • Excerpt: It's a crowded field out there, especially for the 3D action genre. Alter Echo is looking to make its mark with innovative gameplay and a unique style, but getting the job done well enough to earn Eric's respect is a whole other story. Is it hip enough to please?

  • Conclusion: All in all, Alter Echo is a solid game. It would have been nice to have seen some more variety in the environments, and the instances of backtracking through areas you've already visited are disappointing. But the game's exciting, free-form combat makes up for those deficiencies. Alter Echo's length makes it a game that you could get away with renting, but its move list means that it'd be worth taking at least a second trip through to try out moves you may have missed...

Alter Echo - Review (PS2/Xbox)

20 November 2003
  • Conclusion: Optisch wirkt das Spiel recht interessant da mit einem neuartigen Leveldesign gearbeitet wurde - an dem man sich allerdings auch erst einmal gewöhnen muss. Die grellen Farben stören mit der Zeit aber ein wenig. Sie sind einfach zu erdrückend. Zusätzlich wurde bei den Details gespart - was eigentlich sehr schade ist, denn alles wirkt ein wenig trist. Positiv fällt der Sound auf, der nicht nur eine gute Stimmung erzeugt, sondern auch nach Stunden nicht nervig klingt.

  • Conclusion: Ambitioniertes Action-Adventure mit einigen guten Ansätzen, das aber unter anderem mit dem mangelnden Abwechslungsreichtum seiner Levels zu kämpfen hat. Genrefans mit einem Faible für ungewöhnliche Schauplätze können trotzdem mal reinschauen.
