Mario Party review (N64)
21 July 2004
Excerpt: Hello. My name is Jason, and I’m a Mario Party addict. Call me a poopy face, dismiss me as a veritable baboon’s posterior if you will, but the universe was tilting in the balance and I knew the only thing that could save it (aside from a Michael Moore documentary) was my willingness to weather such...
Excerpt: Klonoa 2 stars the namesake hero who finds himself in Lunatea. When he helps out the priestess-to-be Lolo, Klonoa gets involved in a quest to visit the Harmony Bells in each of Lunatea's Four Kingdoms. From that point, it's the player's job just to work through levels, called Visions.
Pros: Clean visuals/colorful, Easy to pick-up, Variety of gameplay
Cons: May be too young for older games, Fairly short for a platformer
Excerpt: First of all I want to thank the people at SCEA (Sony Computer Entertainment Austria) and my press contact, the team at "Agentur Impuls", for sending me a copy of this game for review purpose.
Excerpt: Not having played the first game, I was unsure how the story of the sequel related to it. Apparently, Klonoa has appeared in a dreamworld called Lunatea. With his appearance comes trouble in the form of a sky pirate named Leorina.
Excerpt: Klonoa is back — not the cooking oil, but the run-and-jump hero with hands for ears. Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil is a PlayStation 2 offering from Namco that features classic, simplistic platform action in a colorful, scrolling world.
Excerpt: Klonoa est enfin de retour sur nos consoles et c'est sur PS2 que ça se passe. Sans rien changer à la formule du premier épisode, l'animal est une nouvelle fois le héros d'une aventure haute en couleurs.
Conclusion: Malgré son style enfantin, Klonoa ne s'adresse pas qu'aux jeunes joueurs, sa difficulté assez élevée le destine à tous les profils de joueurs. Les hardcore gamers apprécieront sans aucun doute son gameplay 2D qui n'est pas sans rappeler les jeux de plate forme de Nintendo.
