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 locutions and make my astonishing admission.
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. Along the way, you'll fight all sorts of minions, figure out timing-switch puzzles and hunt for hidden areas where you can locate each of the 6 stars hidden in each level.
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. The world of Lunatea is kept in harmony by four bells scattered throughout the land. However a fifth bell, ominously called the Bell of Sorrow, is threatening the peace of Lunatea.
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. Si vous avez aimé le premier Klonoa, alors vous adorerez celui-ci, et pour ceux qui n'auraient pas la chance de connaître le volet original, c'est le moment de foncer.
