Get a Kick Out of This

  • Summary: Haven.... Haven Haven Haven...... What to say about this game. This was my first play-the-entire-game-in-one-sitting-because-poor-are-we-didn't-hav-a-memory-card game back in my younger years with my cousins and this game honestly but does not completely disappoint. It had the aspects of what early PS2 games had with the "newly-improved 3-D models" and variety in game play and the variety is very very much emphasized from platforming to shooting on moving turrets, to...

A Great Adventrue

  • Summary: Haven: Call of the King is exactly the type of game they do not make anymore. This is because boring cookie cutter shooters have taken over the market, and left adventure games like this in the dust. You will notice that games like this tend to get bad reviews from users. Not because the game is actually bad, mind you, but because these young gamers have grown up with shooters, and look down upon most everything else.

  • Summary: One thing that Haven offers is an insane amount of variety in the "gameplay." Like the description says Haven has a lot of different types of levels - you'll fly on a jetpack, control cannons, race, engage in car combat, roll in a ball (like super monkey ball), rhythm type (like parappa), and several other types of minigames, then there's the main on foot platforming. It's actually a negative because it disrupts the flow of the game. Challenge - Haven is very difficult.

Call The Generic King

coopertex, Amazon

  • Summary: Haven: call of the king, tries to be a platformer, shooter and adventure all in one. The problem is that it does not succeed at any of these elements. Another thing that annoyed me was the fact that it claims to be a free-form game, when clearly it is not. The level designs are incoherent to the flow of the generic storyline and awkward controls. Haven, has many interesting elements that it ignores and does not fully develope.

Everyone else is wrong. Buy this game.

  • Summary: Look, if you're into any kind of platforming game at all, whether it be Jak and Daxter, Spyro, or Ratchet and Clank, then you will like this game. It has awesome voice acting, cool cutscenes, great gameplay, good graphics, and most of all... IT'S $5! I bought it right after it came out for $7.99 just because it was so cheap and I expected to be let down. Well, I was wrong.

don't waste your money

  • Summary: It's not often that I regret spending a mere $5 on a game...but this game really makes me want my $5 back. The graphics are cheesy (worse than some ps1 games), the dialogue is corny, the music and sound effects are irritating. I found myself muting the volume at times to make gameplay more tolerable. Some levels are ridiculously easy, some are ridiculously hard. There's no real climbing skill level.

Unnecessarily Difficult in the Wrong Places

A. Gutierrez "agutierrez36", Amazon

  • Summary: Oh what could have been! Haven could have been one of the truly great video games ever: great graphics, good story line, great variety of skills that it tests, many fun-filled hours. Sadly, the makers seem to have taken a perverse joy in making many of the tasks so needlessly long, tedious and darn near impossible, that the average gamer simply throws his/her hands up in despair.

My brother loves it

Amazon

  • Summary: The first day he got the game he said that it is not a good game, but after he play it for an hour hr changed his mind. Now he really loves this game, it makes him think what he really likes to do.

Not Great, but definitely entertaining

Reuben Riojas, Amazon
26 June 2003
  • Summary: I've read many bad reviews for this game and either I like bad games or the other reviewers never really gave this game a chance. As a fan of platform games, I know what I like and don't like in a game, so I was a bit skeptical about 'Haven' trying to be several gametypes rolled into one. The pace of the game was a little slow at the beginning and I'd have to agree with many others that the mag-ball (yo-yo) was quite cumbersome and difficult to control.

A mediocre genre-buster

Joseph Ward, Amazon

  • Summary: In Haven, you travel to all sorts of places on land, sea, and sky. It's very good they give you the missions so you know what you are trying to do. I really liked most of the platform parts, like going into temples and riding the spinning fans. However, the yo-yo is hard to handle, and you end up hurting yourself if you don't throw it in the exact right direction. It's pretty hard to find all the feathers you have to collect too.
