Operation Flashpoint: Elite Review
11 March 2010
Conclusion: Operation Flashpoint: Elite limits itself significantly by being nearly identical to its PC predecessor which was released more than four years ago. The game does a good job of offering some nice Xbox Live play and the added campaign missions will appeal to those who are starved for some seriously slow moving military incursions, but it’s a real shame that there hasn’t been more attention to the production values.
Excerpt: If there’s something I hate, its poor quality assurance. As soon as I opened the manual of Kingdom Under Fire: Heroes I realised that, despite being given high scores and recommendations in certain publications, other people might not care so much. But, to spend so much on developing a game, designing artwork, pressing, printing and all the myriad other things that cost a lot of money, to not spend some money on a semi-literate proof reader is beyond belief.
Conclusion: Action packed gameplay? Check! Hardcore heavy metal soundtrack? Check! A great online mode that keeps you coming back for more? Check! A seriously steep learning curve? Check! Kingdom Under Fire: Heroes has a lot going for it, just as long as you have the patience to figure it all out.
Excerpt: The second in Phantagram's action RTS series for the Xbox, Kingdom Under Fire: Heroes delivers on strategy and button-mashing action, but comes up short in story. Jeremy took KUF: Heroes out for a walk, and decides that in spite of the many faults, Heroes might just be worth a look for the online play, which provides RTS battle mayhem for up to six players via Xbox Live.
Pros: ups: Intricate and demanding strategy game, online play.
Cons: downs: Lackluster story and presentation, imprecise controls, action is reduced to button-mashing.
Conclusion: Difficile d'attribuer une note faible à un jeu qui, fondamentalement, ne le mérite pas. Kingdom Under Fire : Heroes présente au final un Live attractif, une richesse conséquente et une durée de vie des plus longues, à condition, comme je l'ai expliqué, de ne pas avoir brisé le CD préalablement. C'est comme ça.
Pros: Riche et complet, Graphiquement ultra-pas-novateur mais relativement bien foutu
Cons: Désolé, mais c'est trop dur, Bande-son parfois saoulante, Peu de nouveautés
