The Mark of Kri

GamersHell.com
25 April 2003
  • Excerpt: In an ancient Maori-inspired fantasy world the Mark of Kri is said to be a shadowy spell that will unleash an ancient evil throughout the land. Centuries ago the Mark of Kri was split into six fragments, each fragment guarded by one of six chosen members with a doomed fate. Dark times lie ahead and dark powers seek to reunite the Mark of Kri to bring doom upon all mankind. Only Rau, a young yet powerful and noble warrior, stands against the darkness.

  • Excerpt: Instead of backing up like a clumsy truck, doing three-point turns trying to face your moving enemies and spending most of your frustrated time angrily hack-hack-hacking air while those enemies stab you stupidly in the back, as has been the case in every previous action/adventure hack 'n' slasher, The Mark of Kri lets you smoothly target enemies all around and hack them to bits like the finely trained warrior you are pretending to be.

  • Excerpt: By now, how can you even deny it? Sony's 1st party efforts clearly shine and stand out among some of the finest 1st party titles ever created by Sega and Nintendo themselves. Last year's barrage of wonderful 1st party games such as Gran Turismo 3, Twisted Metal: Black, Jak and Daxter and of course ICO proved that Sony was pretty serious about being a respected 1st party developer, with games such as the aforementioned, they sure do deserve to be.

  • Excerpt: Mark of Kri can be described in one word: deception. Throughout the game, it continuously fools you in to thinking one thing, only to spin around and smack you on the head faster than Rau can kill an opponent. Going by looks alone, Kri presents itself as a comical, cartoon looking adventure.

  • Summary: The Mark of Kri is so much more than just another adventure game, or even a good adventure game. Its innovations and blending of so many gameplay elements deserve it to be placed up there with titles such as ICO and Metal Gear Solid. Definitely worth renting, definitely worth buying, though it's not for the young or squeamish.

The Mark of Kri

Level 7

  • Conclusion: Otroligt läcker! Bara på grund av att det är så ruskigt snyggt gjort hoppas jag på en uppföljare där de fixar till kontrollen och gör striderna lite mer välvarierade. Miljöer, karaktärer, fiender och animationer håller alla toppklass. Den klumpiga kontrollen och det lite för styrda och tjatiga stridandet drar ner toppbetyget som det hade kunnat bli med den lysande designen och övriga inramningen.
  • Pros: Otroligt snyggt., Våldsamt., Bra röster., Ok historia., Striderna kan vara riktigt tuffa.
  • Cons: Klumpigt., Tjatigt., Begränsad rörelsefrihet., Striderna blir vilda knapptryckningar., Kort.
