Excerpt: The position one takes for or against this new installment of the Coded Arms franchise on PSP will mostly be informed by the first game, since the list of comparable FPS titles on the system is pretty darn short.
Conclusion: Coded Arms Contagion definitely has its ups and downs. For a Coded Arm fan like myself, this new title provided a nice ten to twelve hour break from my other reviews and it managed to put together a very generic, but fun, single player experience, complete with typical story and formulaic design.
Excerpt: Published and Developed by Konami, Coded Arms: Contagion is the sequel to the popular PSP first person shooter ‘Coded Arms’. When the original Coded Arms first arrived on the PSP it was one of the first shooters available on the handheld machine at the time.
Excerpt: As a game produced by William Oertel, one of the main hands that is bringing us Silent Hill: Origins, I was using Coded Arms: Contagion to kind of gage what I could expect from him. My conclusions: God, I hope this is not an indication of what he’s doing to my beloved Silent Hill franchise.
Excerpt: Genre: First-Person Shooter Publisher: Konami Developer: Creat Studios Release Date: September 18, 2007 When it comes to FPSes, the average gamer wouldn't generally think of a handheld as the platform of choice.
Excerpt: If someone’s ever told you that you’ll never be good at something, chances are that you tried to prove that person wrong. Unfortunately, that’s also what Konami tried to do after critics lambasted its PSP shooter, Coded Arms .
Conclusion: Do your part to stop the spread of Coded Arms Contagion and its uninspired strain of first-person action. Crippled controls and multiplayer malaise prove far too potent against its beautiful looks
Conclusion: 'Coded Arms Contagion' ist wie schon sein Vorgänger kein schlechter PSP-Shooter: Die Steuerung funktioniert für ein Handheld-Spiel recht ordentlich, die Action kommt nicht zu kurz und viele Waffen gibt es auch. Allerdings wirkt das alles wenig innovativ oder liebevoll programmiert.
