Slayer Pinball Rocks HD

Square-Go
12 December 2010
  • Excerpt: Pinball games felt like a pretty natural fit on iPhone, given the vertical orientation and tilt sensors, but on iPad it is just perfect. The bigger screen really sells the feeling of peering down at a pinball table, making Pinball HD an early purchase for many iPad owners. Indeed, it won in the iPad category of the 2010 Apple Design Awards. So it is glad tidings to hear of Gameprom’s new offering; Slayer Pinball Rocks HD . Or is it? Well, sort of.

Fantasy game shows same story from different viewpoints.

Common Sense Media
12 December 2010
  • Summary: Parents need to know that Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep is a prequel to the Kingdom Hearts series of games. It takes place before the original Kingdom Hearts game and relies heavily on story elements introduced in other entries in the game franchise. There are several Disney characters that appear in the game, although some of these characters handle combat situations with more aggression than when they are portrayed in Disney films and TV shows.

Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep

Playstation Illustrated
12 December 2010
  • Excerpt: I'm hesitant to call Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep an RPG. It shares several core elements of the play style, but feels more akin to an action game in execution. This is by no means a bad thing; it's just a little different and shows we might be eeking closer to a "one play style future." Birth by Sleep retains the same look and feel of previous games. The visuals are easily on par with the PS2 entries, and might look just a little better.

Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep Review

GameSpot
11 December 2010
  • Excerpt: Kingdom Hearts fans have spent quality time with Sora and Roxas; now they can add three new characters to the list: Ventus, Terra, and Aqua. These close friends are the protagonists in the newest entry in the series, Birth by Sleep, and you play as all three of them on your way to unraveling mysteries that shed new light on the events of the original Kingdom Hearts. Yet while the playable characters may be different, Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep treads familiar ground.
  • Pros: Combat is fun and flashy, and it evolves as you play, Boss fights put a fun spin on Disney characters and sets, Great visuals capture the spirit of the source material, Multiplayer arenas are entertaining, Good-sized campaign
  • Cons: Camera can be a nuisance, A lot of repetition, from environments to music, Terra's voice acting is abysmal, Long load times and frame rate drops

Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep

The Gamers Temple
26 November 2010
  • Excerpt: Ok, I officially have been made a fool of by Square Enix. As I write this, I'm sitting in front of the shelf that is home to my video game collection, and I can count SIX Kingdom Hearts games up there. One and two on the PS2, the Game Boy Advance's Chain of Memories and its PS2 reboot, Re: Chain of Memories, the Nintendo DS' 358/2 Days and finally, the PSP's Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep. Out of those six, I've truly loved one – the original Kingdom Hearts.

Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep Review

VideoGamer.com
24 November 2010
  • Excerpt: After nearly ten years, it still boggles my mind that the Kingdom Hearts series actually exists; that Mickey Mouse wields a keyblade, Hercules is the master of a battle coliseum and Sephiroth can exchange blows with Donald the Duck. It's the kind of game that might be conjured up in a weird alcohol fuelled dream, a dream that seems perfectly plausible while you're in it, but after waking you realise how utterly absurd it all was.

  • Conclusion: Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep is a fun game that was almost brought down by questionable control issues and a repetitive story. If players can get past a few minor problems, they'll discover that this prequel offers a surprising amount of great content, beautiful graphics and even some fun multiplayer modes!

Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep (PSP) - Review

VGChartz
20 October 2010
  • Excerpt: While Kingdom Hearts fans eagerly await the third numbered entry in the franchise, Square Enix and Disney have been consistently expanding the series through portable spinoffs. Last year, the well received but strangely titled Kingdom Heart 358/2 Days graced the Nintendo DS, and now the PSP gets some love in the form of Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep ( BBS).
