Snoopy vs. the Red Baron Review
22 November 2006
Excerpt: A long-running gag in the Peanuts comics and cartoons has been Snoopy's fascination with World War I air battles. Specifically, Charlie Brown's pet beagle likes to imagine that he's a famous flying ace engaged in dogfights against the legendary Red Baron. Now, thanks to Namco-Bandai Games, that gag has been made into a video game. Snoopy vs.
Pros: Snoopy's WWI flying-ace dream has been brought to life, underlying game delivers solid arcade-style air combat, cinemas and musical score duplicate the feel of the animated cartoons, character voice acting adds to the charm, missions are genuinely fun to play over and over again
Cons: Combat may be too straightforward for some, twenty-two missions aren't enough, if only it had an online multiplayer mode
Excerpt: Snoopy Vs. The Red Baron is brought to us by Smart Bomb Interactive, makers of the multi-platform Pac-Man World Rally , and distributed by industry veteran Namco/Bandai Group. Like many of you, I was rather surprised to see this title come across my proverbial desk. Was there a Charles M. Schultz event or memorial recently? Was an anniversary reached for something related to his beloved Peanuts comic strip?
Conclusion: Snoopy isn't loaded with depth; you'll likely see everything you need to see the first time around, making it a rather shallow game, but while it lasts, there is, surprisingly, fun for all ages to be found here. Yes, I'm just as shocked as you are.
