Fading Shadows Review

  • Excerpt: Before I get into saying anything else about this game, I really must commend the individual who game up with the back story. Presumably the gameplay concept was what came first, and then once everything was all well underway some poor marketing assistant was tasked with giving the whole thing a 'meaning' (which, by the way, it doesn't actually need). The resultant blurb on the back of the box reads like Tolkien on Acid.

  • Excerpt: Last week I received a peculiar looking package at my home office. As I opened up the package I found a bag of marbles along with Fading Shadows for the PlayStation Portable (PSP). It had been awhile since I had reviewed a PSP game but it had been about 25 years since I tossed some marbles around. Wondering why a bag of marbles was sent with the game, I quickly reviewed the reading material provided with the game.

  • Excerpt: El gran juego de los años ochenta ha creado una legión de sucedáneos. Fading Shadows es un alumno aventajado que combina puzzles, historia y parte de la acción que en su día hicieron de Marble Madness un éxito de los arcades.

Fading Shadows - Test

Gamefox

  • Conclusion: Ich mag solche kleinen, aber feinen Geschicklichkeitsspiele. Anfangs dachte ich noch, dass das Konzept mit der Metall/Holz/Glas-Unterscheidung unnötig kompliziert wäre. Doch das Leveldesign ist sehr gut darauf abgestimmt und somit die Stärke des Programms. Dank der gegebenen Abwechslung gehört Fading Shadows zu den besseren Murmelspielen seiner Art. Dass nicht mehr als eine niedrige 70er-Wertung drin ist, liegt am mäßigen Umfang und am lieblosen Multiplayer-Modus.
  • Pros: motivierendes Leveldesign, clever ausgeklügeltes Spielkonzept, guter Sound
  • Cons: Levels zu kurz, schwierige Sprungsteuerung, eingeschränkte Lebensanzahl nervt

  • Excerpt: PSP to ciekawa zabawka. Z jednej strony potrafi udźwignąć takie tytuły, jak Sid Meier’s Pirates! , Crysis Core: Final Fantasy czy God od War: Chain of Olympus . Z drugiej na tę konsolę pojawiają się przede wszystkim casuale, w tym takie perełki, jak LocoRoco , Puzzle Quest albo Patapon .
