Operation Winback 2: Project Poseidon PS2 Review
31 May 2010
Excerpt: Rather than running and gunning your way through the game, Operation Winback required a more considered approach if you were to make any progress. But this was not a stealth game, but rather an action game, where taking cover in the many intense firefights was of the utmost importance.
Excerpt: In a nutshell, Operation Winback 2: Project Poseidon is a perfect game for those who enjoy tactical shooters that is, if you enjoy ones that feel as though they were developed back in the mind 1990s. While some of the games ideas may have been a great feature for a game released in the Nintendo 64 era, the considerable advancement that games have made since this time period has seen WinBack looking and running severely aged.
Conclusion: When I think of Ape Escape 2 there is some of me that finds that game to be quite fun, and there are other parts of me that say I got pretty bored playing this game. The game really has it’s moments, and I found that there was probably more pros then cons. There is just a lot of good solid fun platforming gameplay to be had in Ape Escape 2 that will take a good fifteen hours to complete.
Excerpt: Operation Winback was released on the Nintendo 64 back in 1999, before being ported to the PS2 in 2001. Whilst the game did not live up to expectations (the N64’s Metal Gear Solid it was not), Winback was still an enjoyable game. Its main claim to fame was its cover-based combat – hiding behind corners before popping out to shoot people – which was fairly unique at the time, and worked quite well.
Summary: Besonders interessant ist in Winback 2 der Umstand, dass ihr jede Mission zweimal spielen müsst - allerdings stets aus anderem Blickwinkeln. Während ein Agent beispielsweise im Ostflügel eines Anwesens startet und sich lediglich auf die gelegten Bomben konzentriert, startet sein Kollege im Westflügel und kümmert sich um die Geiseln.
