Xiaolin Showdown Review

VideoGamer.com
20 November 2007
  • Excerpt: Xiaolin Showdown is the videogame spin-off of the successful children's TV show of the same name. Taking this into account, it's no surprise that the game has ended up being nigh-on patronising for the average gamer with the developers clearly trying to make their game accessible to even the most novice of gamers. However, with kids these days more than capable of tackling some of the more advanced games out there, there seems to be no real place for this beat 'em up.

  • Excerpt: Many children's cartoons have been turning into video games of late. THQ has released games for nearly every Nickelodeon cartoon of any decent popularity. Crave has recently released games for the GBA based on a couple Cartoon Network programs, and Game Factory has released a Mario Kart game with other Cartoon Network characters.

Xiaolin Showdown Review

GameSpot
17 January 2007
  • Excerpt: While there's something to be said for the accessibility of simple, straightforward games, it's the notion that kids can't handle or appreciate more sophisticated games, or media in general, that causes mindless trash like Xiaolin Showdown to come to bear. It's based on the unremarkable children's cartoon of the same name, which would be indistinguishable from the numerous other post- Powerpuff Girls action comedy cartoons out there were it not for the way it also...
  • Pros: Pretty colors
  • Cons: Clumsy lock-on system, Grating voice acting, Condescending tone, Complete lack of challenge, The fact that it exists

  • Conclusion: After seeing the show I was actually looking forward to taking Xiaolin Showdown for a spin. Unfortunately I was let down in almost every department. The gameplay suffers from poor AI, a faulty camera, repetition, and a complete lack of difficulty. The graphics and audio do nothing for the title either with substandard production and occasional technical glitches.

  • Excerpt: Hvorfor bliver spilmarkedet gang på gang overfyldt med elendige koncepter, bygget over forskellige underholdningstilbud på andre platforme? Film, tv-serier, musik med mere – sælger det, er det nærmest garant for et sløset og ugennemtænkt produkt i spilform. Således også Xiaolin Showdown, der nærmest er en parodi på party-genrens konger. Har man først een gang set helvedes porte åbne sig på klem, vil man bruge hele livet på at løbe i den modsatte retning.

  • Conclusion: <break>Die Entwicklung von Spielen auf der Basis irgendwelcher Lizenzen erfreut sich nach wie vor grosser Beliebtheit, denn schliesslich lassen sich so auch Games unter die Leute bringen, nach denen sonst nie ein Hahn krähen würde. Xiaolin Showdown fällt auch in diese Sparte, denn es benutzt eine mehr oder weniger bekannte Cartoon-Lizenz, um ein simples und langweiliges Prügelspiel zu verkaufen.
  • Pros: Witzige Cell-Shading Grafik, Mit ein paar Freunden für kurze Zeit lustig, Erinnert an Super Smash Brothers
  • Cons: Kaum Abwechslung, Wird schnell langweilig, Versucht, Super Smash Brothers zu imitieren
