Need for Speed Carbon Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: For attempting to satiate the entire racing game populous with a single title, EA has done a pretty fine job. Would a super-mega tuner game have been a better move? Would a follow-up to the pursuit-style racing of Most Wanted have made more sense? Maybe and maybe. Need for Speed Carbon proves that the NFS series still has legs, and can pretty much follow any trend currently being plied in the auto industry.

Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows Review

IGN Entertainment
9 February 2008
  • Conclusion: Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows really came along nicely since E3, as it wasn’t a game that I cared much about at the time. The end product is very solid in most of the areas that make for a good hack n’ slash title, such as strong visuals/sound, manageable camera function, and a stout combat system. I think that Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows could have been better with a different camera system, but I’m sure the current system is what allows the four player action to occur.

Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows

Game Over Online
10 January 2006
  • Excerpt: “Warrior needs food … Badly!” With these four words, a quarter munching franchise was born. When Midway launched the classic arcade hit Gauntlet in 1984, they distilled the dungeon crawling essence into a few basic elements: heroes with different abilities and skills crawling through a massive dungeon fighting their way through hordes of monsters and collecting treasure. It was simple, straightforward and immediately addictive.

  • Excerpt: Unlike the original arcade game which didn’t actually have a plotline attached to it, Seven Sorrows tells the story of the Warrior, the Elf, The Valkyrie and the Wizard through the eyes of the emperor of the land. These four characters are actually immortals who were the champions of the emperor in a happier time.

  • Conclusion: Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows is decent hack and slash adventure that can keep you occupied for a while, although giving its nature this is only for fans of the hack and slash games, or if you're in need of a good co-op game. Otherwise you could get your fill on a rental. Seven Sorrows isn't trying anything new, rather providing an update reflection on this arcade classic.

  • Summary: Meine Ansprüche an Action-Rollenspiele sind eigentlich gering: Ich habe zum Beispiel mit dem doch sehr durchschnittlichen „Dungeon & Dragons Heroes” auf der Xbox einen Heidenspaß gehabt. „Gauntlet” rangiert in einer ähnlichen Wertungsklasse, doch mochte hier der Funke irgendwie nicht rüberspringen. Am Anfang macht es noch Spaß, besonders im kooperativen Modus.
  • Pros: Viele Feinde, Kooperativ kurzweilig spaßig
  • Cons: Verpatze RPG-Elemente, Kaum Suchtpotential, Eintönige Präsentation

  • Conclusion: 13 /20 Le moins que l’on puisse dire c’est qu’il en aura fallu du temps pour que Midway se décide enfin à ressusciter la licence Gauntlet ! Et s'il est vrai que le résultat n’est guère surprenant, il n’en demeure pas moins prometteur pour une éventuelle suite. Bourré de bonnes intentions, Gauntlet : Seven Sorrows ravira les amateurs de hack and slash bourrins, faute de concurrence en ce moment.
  • Pros: Un prix avantageux (40€), De la coopération à quatre joueurs, Certaines attaques dévastatrices, Du multijoueur à la pelle, Des coups variés
  • Cons: Gameplay vu et revu, Du hack & slash pur et dur, Ennuyant en solo

Gauntlet : Seven Sorrows

JeuxVideo.fr
3 March 2006
  • Excerpt: Dans la famille des grands classiques du jeu vidéo, Gauntlet renaît de ses cendres une fois de plus pour nous rappeler son existence. Pourtant, à quelques exceptions près, les titres cultes qui nous enthousiasmaient jadis ne sont parvenus que rarement à se moderniser avec succès, et ce nouveau Gauntlet ne déroge pas à la règle.

  • Conclusion: Tja, was soll man dazu sagen. Ein Spiel mit einer Uralt-Engine, die zu dem nicht mal annährend an heutige Standards heranreicht, für 30 Euro auf den Markt zu werfen ist ziemlich frech, zumal wenn auch die Steuerung mehr als fummelig und die KI ziemlich dämlich ist. Vor zwei Jahren als Add-On für 19,95 wäre es noch ok gewesen.
