Hunter: The Reckoning Wayward
29 March 2005
Excerpt: Hunter: The Reckoning Wayward is a Baldur's Gate -style action game for the PlayStation 2. Wayward is actually a sequel to the original Hunter: The Reckoning that was released for the Xbox and GameCube. Players will once again take on the role of the "Hunters" from the original game and battle their way through the evil that inhabits Ashcroft.
Excerpt: When I first popped in this new PS2 Hunter , I was sure that I would be disappointed with the quality of the graphics (compared to the old Xbox game). To my surprise, however, everything in the game looked gorgeous. Not only do the characters stand out, but the environments, the cut scenes, and the special FX all took to my eye. In the sound department, Hunter the Reckoning: Wayward delivers the mood of the first game. Some will say that it's the 'same old, same old'...
Excerpt: A while ago, when the first Hunter game came exclusively to the Xbox, a lot of people such as myself were disappointed because of this. Then the company finally listened to the people, and made a PS2 exclusive version; with new characters, a new interface, new levels, and new guns. I was very happy to get my hands on this release, for I have waited for a long time for a game like this.
Conclusion: „Hunter: The Reckoning Wayward“ ist ein solides Hack´n´Slay Game, und bietet PS2 Spielern eine willkommene Abwechslung zu Games wie „Gauntlet: Dark Legacy“. Allerdings treibt der nicht vorhandene 4-Player-Mode sicherlich nicht nur Fans der Serie eine kleine Träne ins Auge. Schade, denn vor allem dieses Genre lebt von den Multiplayer-Modi. Was aber vor allem stört, ist die unpräzise Steuerung, insbesondere das Anvisieren.
