26 October 2012

La-Mulana review (WiiWare)

GameZone
25 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Remember the good ol' days when games were actually a challenge?  I mean, don't get me wrong, Dark Souls will whoop your ass if you're unprepared, and some games force you to "grind" on end to get the most out of them.  But I mean the old-school kind of games where you had to write down password codes and look up strategy guides to really get anywhere, or, if you were a true gamer, tooled around for hours on end just to find the next necessity.

La-Mulana

JeuxVideo.fr
23 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Situé au-delà du temps dès sa sortie sur PC en 2005 au Japon, La-Mulana est un véritable hommage aux jeux de action / aventure à l'ancienne, jusqu'au moindre pixel. Après avoir été encensé par la critique pendant des années, voilà qu'il arrive sur WiiWare après quelques rebondissements. Mais n'est-ce pas un pari risqué de faire venir sur Wii un titre connu pour son extrême difficulté ? Voyons cela.
