Excerpt: "...last time we encountered young Maximo we were scouring the underworld for his lost love Sophia and so torrid a time I was having that I nearly raised the flag to turn my attentions to studying particle physics for a little light relief. If you finished the last game without cheating, go by yourself a pint on me, you deserve it. And if you attempted the last game then you'll know that despite the final levels being tougher than a titanium-coated cheesecake, ...
Pros: Gameplay is very fun, not as frustrating as the first
Cons: Maybe too short, those who find action platformers repetitive may be put off
Summary: If you have seen any of my other brilliant reviews available in a set for just 692 payments of 19.95 + 6.95 S&H then you know that i am a brainless idiot. But this review is different. Yeah... haha... not really... SUBLIMINAL join the navy!!! join the navy!!! join the navy!!! join the navy!!! join the navy!!! join the navy!!! join the navy!!! join the navy!!! join the navy!!! join the navy!!! join the navy!!! join the navy!!! join the navy!!! join the navy!!!
Summary: Like its predicessor, Army of Zin is one of the most difficult and frustrating games you'll ever love. There were times when I found myself literally screaming at the screen because I wanted to throw my controller through it and hit the monsters on the other side. Capcom really tries (and succeeds) to put the odds against Maximo the majority of the time. There are a few scenes when I wondered how I was able to make it out alive.
Summary: This game is better than expected. You can easily cruise through the game just hacking and slashing enemies, but the challenge is to get all the rewards and hidden treasures. Bosses are huge. As with many games you empty their energy bar and it fills back again, but with different kind of attacks. It is a combination of action, adventure and platformer, but basically is the first one.
Summary: Maximo Vs. The Army Of Zin is Capcom's sequel to last year's Maximo: Ghost To Glory, whose character design and atmosphere is loosely based on the old Ghosts And Ghouls arcade games. Army Of Zin refines every postive aspect of the first game and eliminates all the annoying quirks fans could possibly complain about in a platformer.
Summary: Maximo vs aoz is an awsome flat out action game to play. This one basicly takes place were the second one left off. When I first heard about maximo vs aoz it was in around 2002. I couldnt wait till it came out! And I wasnt dissapointed this game rocks. The graphics are very good. Top notch. Gameplay is awsome. To a warning to anyone who gets frustraited easily on video games and makes them want to throw it out the window...THIS GAME IS NOT FOR YOU!!
Summary: This game is the great grandson of the old "Ghosts & Goblins" series. It's has more old-school combat action than your typical platformer. Some may find this game difficult or repetitive. Not me. I enjoy this game because of the challenge. In general, it has great graphics and smooth gameplay.
Summary: It's been eight months since the orignal game, and Maximo was looking for his loved one, Sophia. His search was halted, however, when an army of mechanical monsters are wreaking havoc on villages, so what must one man to do with this situation? Takin' 'em down in a clash-of-the-titans brawl, as Maximo and his trademark boxers comes back in another quest in this sequel, MAXIMO vs. ARMY OF ZIN.
Summary: Maximo-AOZ is a little disappointing given both the hype and time the developers had to work on this title (and that includes the pushback in the release date to Jan '04). For as much as the first one was fun - and you expected more of the same - it is not as challenging as the first one(PS2 release). This one's way too easy (all the "secret" chests are in obvious locations (big open field with nothing else around! Duh!))...
