Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: There probably wasn't a better game at launch than KOEI's Kessen if you wanted beautiful computer graphics and cinematic camera work. Game fans had something else to be excited about here, since music credits include the Moscow International Symphonic Orchestra. The visuals are wonderful, with human faces that show real emotion and incredible details like strands of hair moving in the wind or images of a thousand soldiers awaiting the call to battle.

  • Excerpt: Koei has been in the habit of creating true-to-life war simulation since its early SNES days. They have always been credited for building a sophisticated simulation game around an incredibly rich (and historically accurate) story. Kessen is no exception. Taking its heroes from a chapter in Japan's past, Koei's 'war-simulation' formula has worked once again resulting in simply one of the most rewarding and in depth strategy titles to appear on a console system.

  • Excerpt: When I review a game I usually know what to score it. A good game gets a high score, a crap game gets a low score.

  • Excerpt: On ne peut pas dire que les jeux de stratégie en temps réel sont monnaie courante sur console, surtout quand il doit s'agir de véritable stratégie plus que de gestion de ressources. C'est pourtant ce que nous propose Electronic Arts avec Kessen. Mais le jeu n'est malheureusement pas à la hauteur des splendides screenshots qui ornent la boite et quelques déceptions de taille attendent l'amateur de stratégie.

  • Excerpt: Første strategispil til Playstation 2 er kommet. Der er tale om KOEIs spil Kessen, der lader dig trække i en japansk krigsherres rustning, og udkæmpe slag fra Japans voldsomme historie. Spillet viser mange af Playstation 2´s virkelige stærke sider frem i meget overbevisende stil.
