Nightcaster Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: VR-1 made a valiant effort with its first action/adventure game, but the game lacks long-term value or originality. Had there been better implementation of the in-game camera and battle sequences, the game would have had a better chance of showing what it had to offer. Overall Nightcaster is a good game, but a good arcade/action game, not a good RPG game.

  • Summary: "Most creatures that come after you will keep coming and coming even after you kill them as they tend to have nests called "Spawners" so the only way to stop them coming back again and again is to take out the Spawner." "At first, controlling Nightcaster felt like it might be a nightmare of its own, you move Arran around the levels via the left thumbstick, the right thumbstick when moved releases your orb and switches the game into a top down view"
  • Pros: Cool Spells, Solid Framerate, Nice control system
  • Cons: Repetitive, Poor story, Why is there a 3rd person mode?

Expert Review

Xbox Gazette

  • Conclusion: Nightcaster se révèle être un jeu d'action à la réalisation honnête, mais aux combats trop nombreux. Le manque d'objets à trouver et le système de sauvegardes par check-point ajoutent à la frustration générale. On aurait aimé un développement plus important de l'aspect aventure, et pourquoi pas un soupçon de jeu de rôles.
  • Pros: répétitif, caméra à replacer, points de sauvegarde rares, pas de multijoueurs
  • Cons: sorts très visuels, taille des niveaux

  • Conclusion: Um es gleich vorwegzunehmen, NightCaster hat nicht ganz unsere Erwartungen erfüllt. Das Spielprinzip ist einfach nicht ausgereift und auch der Dauerspaß bleibt nicht lange erhalten. Zwar ist der Ansatz einmalig und Microsoft hat ein schönes Adventure mit einer Menge an Zauberei entwickelt, trotzdem scheint es einfach immer wieder uninteressant. Vielleicht liegt es an den unanspruchsvollen Gegner und an dem schlechten Kamerasichtfeld.
