R-Type Final

The Armchair Empire
8 October 2004
  • Conclusion: And blowing things up is a big, big part of the R-Type Final experience.

R-Type Final

Playstation Illustrated
15 July 2004
  • Excerpt: R-Type Final adapts a 3D world to a 2D gameplay style, and it does it rather well.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: With R-Type Final, fans of the series have a reason to rejoice and be saddened at the same time. On one hand, it provides a very solid shooting experience from start to finish, chock full of nostalgia, beautiful graphics and great gameplay. While the level designs and challenges may not be as strong as previous entries in the series, the enormous ship count, multiple endings, alternate levels, and wealth of extra features should keep shooter fans coming back...

Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders

  • Conclusion: Schlachtenatmosphäre, Hack’n’Slay und strategische Tiefe - Kingdom Under Fire ist ein gelungener Action-Strategietitel, der Fantasy-Freunden trotz kleiner Macken eine Menge Spaß bereiten wird. Für Xbox-Strategen beinahe ein Muß.
