Excerpt: “Huh? Based on a 70’s movie? Why now?” I heard myself utter those words when I first heard about The Warriors . Apparently, the people over at Rockstar (infamous now because of their controversial Grand Theft Auto series) won the rights to this relatively unknown action film. It makes perfect sense considering their track record, appealing to all destruction/violence loving gamers of the world.
Summary: Movie-linked games are usually games best left unreleased but there are a few exceptions and The Warriors is most definitely one of those games - hardly surprising considering Rockstar's track record with games. The Warriors is an excellent beat-em-up, a great action game with plenty of styles of gameplay, it has a great 70's vibe and an excellent storyline to boot.
Excerpt: Usually, when a video game based on a film makes its way to your console, it's based on the latest movie at the box-office--and usually the game turns out to be hastily produced and too shallow to keep you interested. Rockstar broke with this tradition in deciding to take a cult classic from the late 70's and turning it into a game that is destined to be every bit as classic.
Excerpt: Despite the fact that it's based on a film more than a quarter-century old, very little about Rockstar's The Warriors feels dated or archaic. This stylish, retro brawler takes Walter Hill's cult-classic film of the same name and delves even deeper into the seedy, ultraviolent world of New York City gangs.
Pros: Satisfying, smart combat that can be enjoyably unpredictable, Environments bust up real good, Stretches out a two-hour movie into a well-written, entertaining 12-hour game, Many of the original actors reprise their roles, and the soundtrack and audio are excellent, Plenty of extra modes, including unlockable games and co-op multiplayer
Cons: Core graphics aren't very attractive, Co-op play isn't exactly remarkable, just serviceable, A few extremely frustrating sequences
Excerpt: Ever since the beginning of 3-D games, there have been a few gaming genres that have suffered. One of these is the good ol’fashioned beat’em up. Games like Double Dragon , Final Fight and Vigilante are fond in a lot of older gamers memory but there really hasn’t been anything reminiscent of them in a long time.
Conclusion: Si vous cherchez un Beat'em all The Warriors fait office de référence mais des problèmes de réalisation l'empêcheront d'être apprécié par tous. Que ce soit seul ou à plusieurs ce jeu vous fera vivre des moments de bonheur grâce à son ambiance.
Pros: L'ambiance sonore et graphique, Le fun procuré par les combats, Un jeu très complet, Bonne durée de vie, Scénario
Cons: Réalisation pas toujours au top, Combats un peu brouillon
Conclusion: En conclusión: Rockstar ha conseguido reinventar el género del beat’em up con The Warriors, dotándolo con una nueva frescura de una profundidad y una ambientación de lujo, que no pasa por alto la gran jugabilidad que precisan este tipo de juegos. Recomendado para todos los amantes de los juegos "yo contra el barrio" y de la película claro está. Por último mencionar que por las escenas de "gore" ha sido catalogado como +18.
