Death Jr.

Just RPG
14 April 2006
  • Excerpt: Death Jr. , from Konami, is an action game with a touch of platforming. The game features a rather unique cast of characters, and some heavy action and platforming. So is Death Jr. a must-have for the PSP? Read on to find out! The storyline in Death Jr. follows DJ, who is none other than the son of Death. Aside from being Death's son, DJ is a pretty average kid who attends school and likes to hang out with his friends.

Death Jr.

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: Death Jr. is a nice surprise - a platforming action game that really delivers. Chalk it up largely to style, for this is a great looking game with lots of neat touches that help push it over just being run-of-the-mill. In the Good Looks department, there are great lighting effects on "DJ's" weapons and pick-ups. The weapon lighting is mostly a style thing, but for the pick-ups or objects that offer some interaction to be shown more prominently on screen is functional.

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: Death has never been this great. In Death Jr., you play as DJ, a reaper that takes a class field trip to a local museum. Being the typical bunch of kids, aside from one of your friends having two heads, another being a dead fish, and you being the son of death himself, they of course are curious about mysterious objects. They find a box not meant to be disturbed and open it, releasing a force throughout the museum.

Review: Death Jr. - Root of Evil

gamesaktuell.de
28 June 2006
  • Excerpt: Kaum hat Death Jr. seinen Stubenarrest abgesessen, da tritt er schon ins nächste Fettnäpfchen.
  • Pros: Teuflisch viele Ballermänner, die sich allesamt ordentlich pimpen lassen, Schicke Optik, die selbst bei fetten Explosionen ruckelfrei bleibt, Das Abenteuer lässt sich kooperativ zocken
  • Cons: Steuerung, Kollisionsabfrage und Kamera könnten besser sein, Beide Digi-Helden haben nur mäßige Nahkampf-Attacken auf Lager, Die Aufgaben wiederholen sich im Verlauf des Abenteuers

Death Jr.

Level 7
5 April 2006
  • Conclusion: Spelets grafik är originell och riktigt rolig. Idylliska, amerikanska förortsområden blandas med eldsprutande monster i en härlig röra. Texturerna och designen är näst intill perfekt förutom de ibland mörka texturerna. När jag skriver om spelet så får jag själv lust att spela det, trots att jag vet att det inte är en sådan härlig upplevelse som man kan tro när man läser om spelet och ser det på bild.
  • Pros: Grafiken, Musiken, Karaktärerna, Originellt
  • Cons: Konsolvalet, Styrningen, Kameran, Svårighetsgrad
