Fireblade

The Next Level
5 November 2002
  • Excerpt: The major differences between Fire Blade and many of its predecessors are two-fold. First, FB is a 3D game. Don't plan on reliving any shmup memories via this disc. Second, the game provides the player freedom of movement throughout each level in much the same way as many of today's mech games. There are no rails and no predetermined path to victory. It is up to the player to determine the best route and strategy to use throughout Fire Blade 's 20 missions.

  • Excerpt: I've seen plenty of examples of a don't-judge-a-book-by-its-cover-type game, but Fireblade ranks up there with the best of 'em. My first impression largely still stands; Fireblade isn't an amazing game by any stretch, but some of the more extreme jagged edges about the whole gameplay experience have been smoothed out a bit.

  • Excerpt: Fire Blade looks pretty decent, graphically speaking. Midway continues to impress me with some of the great ideas they're putting out right now. The environments are what make Fire Blade so impressive. They are expertly textured, as there is massive geographic diversity represented in the game. This of course means that Kuju couldn't cut any corners with what they did. You have the massive mountain ranges of the first areas. Vegetation is lush and almost entrapping.

  • Conclusion: Fire Blade bietet eine solide Grafik, ein actionreiches Gameplay sowie etliche Missionen. Es kann durch die Nonstopaction überzeugen, bei dem der Spieler von einem Gefecht zum Anderen eilt. Simulationsfans werden den Realismus vermissen, aber Fire Blade setzt auch nicht diesen Anspruch. Leider ist die Steuerung schwer zu erlernen (!) was bei manchen Spielern zu dem einen oder anderen Frustanfall führen könnte.

  • Excerpt: I en verden overbefolket af skumle terrorister, kan vi ikke få veluddannede kamp-helikopterpiloter nok. Eller kan vi? Med det nye Fireblade fra Midway, kan du hoppe i cockpittet, møde spændende nye Osama wanna-be’s fra hele verden – og slå dem ihjel med maskinkanoner og missiler. Det er set før, mange gange endda, så Fireblade er i hård konkurrence lige fra start.

  • Excerpt: Au plus fort de l'action ! Dans le cockpit de FireBlade, une seule règle : user de tous les moyens pour détruire les cellules terroristes qui sévissent dans le monde. Gagner cette guerre ne sera pas une mince affaire. Pour cela vous aurez à votre disposition un hélicoptère doté d'un arsenal...

  • Excerpt: Od czasów sławetnego Desert Strike'a ani na pecety, ani na konsole nie było dobrych gier, w których możemy polatać sobie śmigłowcem. Nie mam tu na myśli symulatorów lotu, ale zwykłe strzelanki, które pozwoliłby się odprężyć po ciężkim dniu pracy. Na szczęście firma Midway doszła do podobnego wniosku i wydała grę Fireblade. Poniższa recenzja dotyczy wersji na konsolę PS2, ale w planach wydawniczych są też wersje na inne platformy. Fabuła Fireblade jest prosta jak drut.
