Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords review (DS)
20 June 2007
Excerpt: Winning and losing should be based on skill and strategy, not a roll of the dice. Although it’s their first venture into the RPG genre, 1st Playable Productions found an intriguing way around this problem, through puzzles and a rich character building system.
Excerpt: To some extent, the average survival-horror game could be said to have two parts. One is its capacity to horrify the player; the other is the gameplay itself. Odds are good that the two aren't even tangentially related. The good news here is that Clock Tower 3 is scary. It's very good at the first part of survival-horror. A lot of horror games reach a certain point where the reality overpowers the psychology.
Excerpt: In a genre already almost fit to burst with either quality or above average titles, from well established franchises such as Resident Evil, Alone in the Dark, Silent Hill, etc, is there room for yet another survival horror game? Well, probably. Especially when you consider that it’s a horror sequel from Capcom. Alrighty then...
Summary: Clock Tower 3's movie portions are stronger than the gameplay that underpins them, and the result is a game that you'll probably want to finish more for its storyline than for the fun you'll have actually playing it.
Conclusion: In conclusion, Clock Tower 3 may be just what your survival-horror fanatics have been looking for to tide you over until the next Silent Hill or Resident Evil. It brings some new flavours to a well-used area of gaming, and if it can be found at a bargain price may well be worth it for the few hours entertainment it gives you.
Conclusion: Clock Tower 3 ein recht gutes Spiel, das eher mit Project Zero und vielleicht noch Silent Hill zu vergleichen ist. Das Game lebt vom grusligen Sound und den Schockeffekten, die den Spieler nie wirklich zur Ruhe kommen lassen. Also ein psychologischer Horror, der von der d�steren Atmosph�re und nicht von irgendwelchen nach Blut gierenden Untoten hervorgerufen wird. Wer auf hammerharte Splatter-Action steht, ist bei diesem Titel mit Sicherheit an der falschen Adresse.
Pros: tolle Atmosphäre, gute FMV`s, praktisch keine Ladezeiten
