Excerpt: Goichi “Suda 51″ Suda is kind of a weird guy. The Japanese producer, famous for […]
Pros: + Original gameplay separates it from anything currently available, + One of the best uses of the Wii controls available yet, + Hash and Slash gameplay pleasantly reminiscent of games like Final Fight and Battletoads
Cons: Can get repetitive, Side quests feel more like chores than missions
Conclusion: No More Heroes' music is quite good. While the main theme is reused for much of the game, it is not necessarily a bad thing. The catchy tune does its job quite well and gets the player into the mood of the action very fast. It is also a rather versatile melody as it fits the vast majority of the game a lot better than most of the rest of the musical score does. When you are not occupied with doing assassination missions, you will be treated to these other tunes.
Excerpt: Ubisoft's Prince of Persia Sands of Time is, for many, one of the greatest games of the last generation, and that proved to be a hard act to follow. Warrior Within performed better in the charts, but its focus on combat and a hard rock soundtrack didn't sit well with fans of the first game. Taking these criticisms on board, Ubisoft created The Two Thrones, which brought back much of the acrobatic goodness that made the original such a cult hit.
Excerpt: Vous avez déjà joué à Prince of Persia : les deux royaumes sur Gamecube ' Alors quelque part vous avez aussi joué à ce Rival Swords. Dommage d'ailleurs que nous n'ayons pas le test du premier en base, nous aurions pu purement et simplement faire un copier-coller et y apporter une ou deux modifications. Mais puisque ce jeu fut un énorme plaisir, l'écrire en sera sûrement un aussi (mais si le copier-coller aurait pu nous permettre de jouer encore et encore...
Conclusion: Rival Swords is a good title that only rivals itself. It's like a "could have been" game born dead... How can you compete with your older version that's exactly like you and costs 50 percent less? I'm talking about The Two Thrones game that's available on the Wii thanks to the backwards compatibility. I'm still searching for a reason to recommend you to play Rival Swords, but nothing comes to my mind unless you're a die-hard Prince of Persia fan and a collector.
Excerpt: Prince of Persia: Rival Swords review Game Over Online - http://www.game-over.com Prince of Persia is back, this time in the form of "Rival Swords" for the Nintendo Wii. This game is basically a straight port of "The Two Thrones" Gamecube game with a new control scheme implemented. Though it does have a different feel thanks to the new controls, does it warrant the purchase of a new game?
Excerpt: 2005's Prince of Persia: Two Thrones finished up the last-generation Prince of Persia trilogy that seemed to spark some fire back into the action/adventure genre. Two Thrones benefited from better combat, better graphics, more creative platform and time-based puzzles, and a great use of the Prince’s newfound “Dark” side–but does the Wii-make of Prince of Persia: Two Thrones stand up so well two years later, at full price, with only a few mechanical changes?
Conclusion: though there is still room for more measured and timed attacks. It’s a balancing act between the two and it’s in fine form here. Oddly enough this dichotomy is explored further in the Prince’s evil alter ego. After an early plot point in the game, at scripted marks in the game the Prince turns into “Hyde” a being who can only be kept alive by collecting “sands of time.” Besides a sword in his right hand he has a chain sword in his left, which can be used to attack and to...
