Excerpt: Setting traps for your enemies is something that should translate into a game very well. What sounds more fun than impaling your foes on moving walls, dropping various things on their heads, and burning them up amongst other wicked things. Trapt sounds great, in fact it could have been a classic, but when all comes to all this is one shoddy piece of entertainment. Princess Allura is in a bit of a bind, her father is murdered and she stands accused.
Excerpt: Trapt is the fourth game in Tecmo’s Deception series and, like its predecessors on the PS1, its blend of action and strategy has a unique twist: you must use a variety of gruesome traps to snare your pursuers. The over-complicated storyline of a royal assassination, an imprisoned fiend, warlocks, witches, and suicidal cultists will be familiar to anyone who played the earlier versions, as will the clumsily translated subtitles and unspectacular graphics.
Excerpt: Released rather quietly in Europe by Take Two alongside Project Zero 3, Trapt isn't really the game you might expect it to be. Playing as Princess Allura, a young woman accused of murdering her father, you flee to an abandoned mansion in an attempt to hide from your evil stepmother's henchmen. Things soon take a turn for the worse though, with Allura discovering the mark of the 'Fiend' on her arm - a mysterious presence that is locked away in the mansion.
Excerpt: As the PS2's time with us begins to wane, it is surprising just how many good games continue to be released for the platform. One of the more unique games to recently hit the console is the thinking man's title Trapt . Trapt is another babefest brought to us by the fine folks at Tecmo.
Excerpt: This isn't a history lesson, but it does serve as a good standpoint from which to evaluate Trapt, the fourth Deception gaming, coming five long years after the 3rd (Dark Delusion) debuted on the PS1.
Excerpt: Sure, saving the world, rescuing someone and being a nice guy is great and all that, but gamers know that it’s so good to be bad. Why be a goody two shoes when you could seek revenge against people trying to manipulate you and your friends? Why follow the rules when groups of mercenaries or thugs are trying to kill you?
Excerpt: Tecmo's latest adventure game, Trapt, may have the same name as the lackluster nu metal band that brought us the unremarkable song "Headstrong," but thankfully the two properties aren't at all related. Trapt the game combines common survival horror themes with puzzle-based gameplay. Although it isn't quite like anything you've played this generation, Trapt isn't entirely new.
Pros: Sadistic fun to be had by leading clueless enemies into various traps, Plenty of traps and rooms to play around with
Cons: Story is fairly short and almost unintelligible due to poor translation, Enemies are almost too dumb sometimes, The frame rate comes grinding to a halt whenever traps are activated
Conclusion: This is definitely going to be a high bid for a game of the year winner. There are so many things that Splinter Cell does well, and it is still amazing even after you complete the whole game. The replay value is definitely there you will most likely want to go back and try the game out on hard and then there is still downloadable content soon to come. This is one of those games that I would recommend to anyone, this is sure to make anyone happy over the holidays.
