Conclusion: Considering the fact that the survival horror genre is not the most populated on the Xbox, Cold Fear does a poor job of capitalizing on its advantage. The game feels as though it could have come straight from the scenes of a ‘80s B-movie horror flick, with dry characters and gameplay that repeats itself to no end.
Excerpt: Horror titles always seem to have a certain thing in common. The overwhelming threat comes from some kind of evil source. Be it a mutated zombie or a crazed ghost, you can bet your bottom dollar that somebody has been up to hi-jinks; which makes Cold Fear a bit of an oddity. It's a horror game set on a boat, you see, and while there is a thoroughly evil threat to your well-being, there is another, much more immediate threat: falling off the boat.
Summary: Mafia II was well worth the eight-year wait. It offers things like great action, compelling storyline, impressive graphics, great acting and cinematic scenes and an overall captivating experience that keeps you coming back for more. Some games can offer one or two of those, but it's not everyday that a gaming masterpiece comes along. When you pick up Mafia II, realize that it's a keeper.
Conclusion: The only thing for me that let the game down slightly was the lack of variation in the characters, and I think they could have looked better. The other presentational aspect, which isn’t great, is the door loading. Now I should say at this point, that I never had a major problem with it during the previous Resident Evil games, but after playing the latest game, with the majority of the doors opening instantly, you expect it to be the same for all games.
Pros: Fantastic environmental effects., Full 1st and 3rd person control is very welcome., Looks and sounds great.
Cons: It’s too short., Resident Evil 4 just came out and it casts a big shadow.
Conclusion: Some might argue that at a time when games like Red Dead Redemption have taken the idea of open-world gaming to all new heights, a focused and linear title like Mafia II could be seen as a step in the wrong direction, but that would be missing the point. The point is that 2K Czech has taken the overall idea of an open-world setting, made the conscious decision to keep things focused and moving forward, and delivered one of the most enthralling single-player narratives we...
Pros: Storytelling at its best, Characters have real depth, Slick cover-based shooting action
Cons: Linear experience, Long driving sections can become tiresome
Conclusion: Lowdown Cold Fear is your standard survival horror title in Resident Evil vein. Although the Darkworks gets points for an original setting, although the plot is just shark food. Cold Fear will provide you with a few hours of suspenseful action, but in the end will end up frozen on your gaming shelf.
Summary: Bref, les développeurs ont tenus toutes leurs promesses, que ce soit au niveau des décors interactifs ou du fait de pouvoir modifier le comportement de nos ennemis. Un jeu des plus intéressants avec des graphiques, une bande-son et un contexte à la hauteur, mais qui déçoit légèrement avec une fin qui aurait pu être un peu plus spectaculaire.
Pros: - Graphique - Bande Sonore - Version intégrale française - Originalité par son contexte - Peu de "bugs"
Conclusion: En conclusion, Cold Fear est un bon jeu qui ravira tous les amateurs de Survival Horror. Après le fabuleux Alone in the dark IV, Darkworks confirme tout le bien que l'on pensait d’eux. Ils renouvellent avec brio un genre surexploité. Une bouffée d’air frais salvatrice à plus d’un titre. Un jeu à jouer de préférence tard dans la nuit et tout seul pour pouvoir pleinement l’apprécier.
Pros: nombre d’armes pas très conséquent, adaptation pour la visée nécessaire
Cons: très bons graphismes, durée de vie raisonnable, atmosphère vraiment angoissante, un nouveau survival français
