Kirby's Dream Land review (GB)
21 February 2008
Excerpt: Without his ability-stealing powers, Kirby’s a pretty dull hero. He can gulp down some air and fly, he can spit that air at enemies and he can swallow them and their projectiles to either shoot at other foes or eat. And that’s all. He won’t pick up a sword or hammer. He can’t emit an freezing barrier to turn foes into blocks of ice. He’ll never transform into a fast-moving, laser-shooting UFO.
Excerpt: Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) is now using the mythos of the world created for their popular MMORPG EverQuest as the inspiration for games in new genres. The first of these new EverQuest games was a strategy game for the PC, Lords of EverQuest. Now SOE has released an action-RPG for the PlayStation 2 that draws its inspiration from Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance.
Excerpt: I can still think back fondly on my first experience with a Snowblind Studios product. Tucked into a cozy corner of a Moebius-themed arcade in San Francisco's Metreon mall, Interplay first showed off Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance to an intimate group of the gaming press. While most probably went to grab a drink or twelve, nobody left the event with anything running through the myriad of excited conversations other than the game.
Conclusion: You’re given three levels of challenge, and thankfully a bit more thought has gone into this, with each level requiring your character to have a minimum level of experience before embarking upon it. Much superior to just throwing extra beasties at you. To start off with you’ve got the medieval equivalent of the Aliens bug hunt. Goblins and Orcs have teamed up and are putting the smack down on the good folk of the land, so it’s up to you to help the good guys fight back.
Conclusion: Voor mij is Champions of Norrath niet veel anders dan de doorsnee Role Playing Game. Grafisch ziet het spel er erg goed uit, en er zijn duidelijk een hoop onderdelen voor je karakter om aan te werken. Het verhaal is leuk, je begint vol goede moed, die alleen al snel wel een beetje in de schoenen zonk. Door de online-modus wordt de levensduur zeker verlengt, want deze werkt erg soepel en het samenspel is erg leuk.
