Legend of Kay PS2 Review

Console Obsession
31 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Legend of Kay is an action RPG in a similar vein to the classic Zelda series. The young boy may be replaced by a youthful cat, but like Nintendo’s game Kay is an amalgamation of puzzle solving, exploration, combat and character interaction. Does the level of execution reach that of the Zelda series and more importantly is it any good?

  • Excerpt: There are many, many ninja or samurai-themed games out there. Some, like the Onimusha series, are extremely successful. Others, like Red Ninja, don't quite rise to glory. But almost none are both suitable for kids to play, while also being a good time for adults. Legend of Kay changes that. In the game you play, not surprisingly, Kay. Kay happens to be an orphaned cat who spends much of his time at his village dojo training with an old cat known as The Master.

Legend of Kay

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: It’s been awhile since I’ve played a fairly typical 3D action/platformer that felt fresh enough to really entertain me, but Legend of Kay does just that. While its presentation is geared more for a younger audience, even old pros like me can find a lot to like about the game’s Eastern flavor and streamlined gameplay. Legend of Kay makes use of a minimalist art style that doesn’t include a lot of realistic details in its environments.

Legend Of Kay – Review

GameCritics.com
25 October 2005
  • Excerpt: It's not often a game earns merit on account of its subtext, much less a derivative action platform game with a talking ninja cat for a hero. That Legend of Kay has a subtext at all is a surprise; that it is more toothsome, political and challenging than any other mainstream console game I've played this year is downright weird.

  • Excerpt: A quest-based, martial arts, platform-hopping adventure, Legend of Kay is a short but solid romp with lush and elaborate visuals that happen to bog down in their own elaborations from time to time.

  • Conclusion: A decent platformer, sure, but don't expect anything new or original here. It's a nice diversion and something good for kids, but adults will probably want to stick to the bigger budget titles.

  • Conclusion: The save system too is another piece of polish that enhances the enjoyment of the game. All you have to do is walk past a (usually) conveniently placed save point and it does the job automatically without interfering with your game. No fuss, no interruption to your movement and something that should be in ALL games of this nature. Another special mention should go to the oriental-style ditties that play through the background.
  • Pros: The combat is button mashing yummy-ness., It plays a mean bit of platforming at times., Varied locations and challenges., The save system is a delight., Looks and sounds good enough.
  • Cons: You’ve seen most of it before., The characters and story are completely forgettable., The style……it’s so…….. childish?, There are some frustrating, ‘camera inept’ platforming moments., It’s all pathways and ‘A to B.’
