  • Excerpt: The wizards at Rare are easily one of the most beloved development studios around. Long the secret behind some of Nintendo's best games, Rare has a new home and they're starting to get their Xbox groove on. Grabbed by the Ghoulies is a bit too simple to be a hit for those looking for the Perfect Dark experience, but it will probably fare better with the kiddies and will no doubt find its way into a stocking or two.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Rare have made the transition from Nintendo to Microsoft and started off with a worthwhile concept that ultimately drags on a bit too long. Fans of the developer will find much to enjoy, and the fantastic presentation will entrance just about everyone else. The game lacks the depth that would make it a keeper, but it should adequately entertain anyone who dares enter its haunted doors.

  • Conclusion: Grabbed by the Ghoulies is above all else a fun and family friendly game. It will probably be ideally suited to those with younger children in the house, and certainly a game that come Christmas Day the whole family could sit around and get a few laughs out of. However because of this style it is not the most challenging game you will play - in fact I have yet to actually lose a life whilst playing it.
  • Pros: The graphics., It's fun.
  • Cons: No depth., Perhaps too simplistic., A two player co-op mode would have been nice.

Massenschlacht der nächsten Generation

Game7
16 August 2006
  • Excerpt: Spiele sind ja generell eingeschränkt durch die Leistung einer Konsole, so war es zum Beispiel bei Dynasty Warriors der Fall. Massenschlachten waren im PS2-Zeitalter noch mit wenigen Charakteren gleichzeitg auf dem Bildschirm und nur schlecht aufgelösten Texturen behaftet. Mit dem Sprung in die neue Generation wird alles anders. Ninety Nine Nights zeigt, wie es aussehen kann und in unserem Test könnt ihr nachlesen, was das Spiel sonst noch bietet.
  • Pros: Riesige Schlachten, Charaktervielfalt, Wunderbare Musik..
  • Cons: ...leider mit wenig Abwechslung, Wenig Abwechlung in den Missionen, Keine deutsche Synchronisation

  • Excerpt: Mystisk titel ikke? Nej faktisk ikke, når man tænker på at spillet er udviklet af genierne fra Rare, der tidligere har lavet det komiske og yderst latrinære Conkers Bad Fur Day (et genialt platformspil til Nintendo 64). Nu er Rare, der også er udviklerne bag Perfect Dark og GoldenEye, så klar med deres første spil til Microsoft Xbox.
