Beatmania review (PS2)

29 April 2006
  • Excerpt: My fascination with the dj-inspired music game, Beatmania , began at an outdoor music festival in Chicago. I paid $45 to listen to my favorite bands and suck up the free corporate samples being handed out (mmm….Yoo-Hoo).

  • Excerpt: Always wanted to be a DJ but didn't know quite where to start? We can't guarantee that beatmania will provide you with the skills needed to become an expert on the turntables, but it is a heck of a lot of fun.
  • Pros: ups: great music, graphics, helpful tutorial, muti-player goodness
  • Cons: downs: possible controller awkwardness

  • Conclusion: beatmania could and should have been a debut that sucked in people in with novel gameplay. Instead, it's a hardcore experience with lackluster tunes that merely sets the stage for what future games could offer.

  • Excerpt: Though titled "Beatmania" for the US, it's actually part of a Japanese revision of the series, Beatmania IIDX - which features up to 7 keys and a turntable instead of the 5 found in the early titles.

  • Conclusion: Acción, tiros y suspense. Muy buena mezcla y muy bien conseguida. Los chicos de RenderWare y Capcom han trabajado de la mano y cooperar para sacar adelante un título que sin hacer mucho ruido, promete horas de sano entretenimiento. Una autentica pena el no poseer un modo multijugador.
  • Pros: Varios personajes, varias historias, Gráficamente digno, La jugabilidad sorprende
  • Cons: Varios personajes, varias historias, Gráficamente digno, La jugabilidad sorprende

  • Conclusion: Für mich ist Without Warning nur ein weiterer Shooter für nebenher. Zu überzeugen wusste das Game nicht. Zur endlosen Enttäuschung hat es denn dann auch nicht gereicht. Durchschnitt eben!

  • Conclusion: In diesem Spiel wird deutlich, was passiert, wenn eigentlich gute Ideen schlecht umgesetzt werden. Die Grundidee, das Spielgeschehen aus sechs verschiedenen Perspektiven zu zeigen, halte ich für sehr interessant.
