NHL 07 Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: The first Madden game for the Xbox 360 showed how good the next generation would be in the near future. NHL 07 , being the first of EA’s next-gen hockey games, does much of the same. While not as bare bones as Madden NFL 06 , NHL 07 still could use a bit more substance to back up its innovative controls and killer graphics and sound.

Castlevania: Curse of Darkness Review

IGN Entertainment
9 February 2008
  • Conclusion: Love it or not, this is the only Castlevania experience for Xbox owners to partake in. There are many problems that could have been addressed with this experience, such as more time spent on creating a visually stylistic world, or adding some spice to the core mechanics of gameplay, but players who have played this style of game will know what to expect.

Castlevania : Curse of Darkness

JeuxVideo.fr
26 July 2006
  • Excerpt: Depuis la prestation remarquée de Castlevania : Lament of Innocence sur PS2, les adorateurs de la mythique série de Konami ne craignent plus de voir leur saga fétiche subir les foudres de la 3D. A présent que cette compréhensible appréhension s'est mue en impatience nerveuse, la venue d'un successeur au dernier volet était attendue comme un petit événement.

Castlevania: Curse of Darkness

GameCaptain
11 February 2006
  • Conclusion: Trotz guter Ansätze (Beschwörung von Helfern, Ausrüstungserschaffung) ist Curse of Darkness leider teilweise etwas langweilig, beziehungsweise man braucht ein wenig Durchhaltevermögen, um nicht vom oftmals eher langsamen Spieltempo und dem altbackenen Leveldesign abgeschreckt zu werden. Bei genauerer Betrachtung zeigt das neue Castlevania zwar durchaus Potenzial, bleibt verglichen mit Hits wie God of War oder Devil May Cry aber nicht nur grafisch höchstens zweite Wahl.
