Azurik: Rise of Perathia Review

IGN Entertainment
9 February 2008
  • Conclusion: The bottom line here is that Azurik: Rise of Perathia is a great introduction into the adventure genre on the Xbox. For anyone who played the game for an hour and says it’s no good should put a little more effort into the game because that is what the game is all about. If you expect to get anywhere in a short amount of time you can forget about it. Azurik reminds me of games like King’s Quest, Hero’s Quest, and even Zelda64…yes I said Zelda64.

Azurik: Rise Of Perathia – Review

GameCritics.com
8 October 2005
  • Excerpt: I've been getting the impression from developers, and the general gaming community, that all this next-generation hooplah is not really about making better games, just better looking ones. No one really cares if Resident Evil 20 or Tekken 9 innovates in the gameplay or story department, so long as there are reflective bump-mapped textures and it roars at sixty frames per second.

  • Excerpt: With an emphasis on true ‘Next Generation’ game standard, Azurik: Rise of Perathia classes itself as ‘Multi-Genre’ - combining elements of epic adventure, fast console-style gameplay and intriguing, story-based RPG gameplay – quite an achievement. Without breaking too much from the norm, as far as typical role-players are concerned, the story involves a young man with a mysterious past on a heroic adventure, an ancient apocalyptic prophecy and a planet spiralling towards...

Azurik: Rise of Perathia Review

GameSpot
3 December 2001
  • Excerpt: In the first month following a new video game system's release, an undue amount of attention is paid to subpar games that would otherwise come out and quickly fade into obscurity at any other time in the system's life cycle. Azurik: Rise of Perathia is one of those games. If you already own an Xbox, don't bother picking up the game, and if you're considering buying an Xbox, don't judge the console by this game.

  • Conclusion: Still, there are a few areas that should've been more polished, and while these things aren't huge issues - a bit of play testing would have them sorted in no time. Azurik will appeal to those who enjoy peppy third-person adventure games and fantasy aficionados will really dig the realm of Perathia too.

  • Excerpt: Longe de fazer justiça às potencialidades da Xbox, falta muita coisa a este titulo da Microsoft. Infelizmente, o seu tamanho está longe de ser proporcional à qualidade que apresenta.

Expert Review

Xbox Gazette
17 March 2008
  • Conclusion: En résumé Azurik ne fera pas la joie des joueurs non persévérants, car le jeu possède pas mal de lacunes, mais il ne faut pas croire que c'est un mauvais jeu. Azurik possède de très bonnes idées comme les quatre différents éléments dont j'ai vraiment adoré le concept et ça apporte un plus au combat stérile et basique qu'il y a dans le jeu.
  • Pros: graphismes décevants, animations saccadées qui rendent le jeu moins instinctif, peu de variété dans les créatures, contrôle du personnage catastrophique, très peu de variété dans les effets sonores, scénario trop classique, phases de combats ennuyeuses
  • Cons: chargements quasi inexistants, durée de vie assez longue, les 4 éléments qui apportent un côté de gestion agréable, musiques sympas

  • Excerpt: Faisant partie des titres édités par Microsoft, Azurik fait enfin son entrée sur Xbox. Voici un jeu qui bénéficie de certains atouts mais témoigne également de quelques lourdeurs qui risquent fort de décourager pas mal de joueurs...
