Top Spin 2 Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Although not without some issues (some of these technical), Top Spin 2 delivers a somewhat satisfying experience that will most likely please fans of the sport. The next-gen quotient could have been higher (the online area is fairly weak), as Top Spin 2 sometimes seems like a slightly better version of the original. A bit more thought put into the gameplay definition of “next-gen” would have paid large dividends.

Game Slander
12 October 2005
  • Excerpt: This game is a great successor to the previous title. Just some quick advice on this one, read the manual first. This game has so many moves that if you start playing without knowing the moves ahead of time, you'll make life a lot harder for yourself. This game is hard enough even knowing the moves. The gameplay is very much like Onimusha. Multiple enimies, watch your back, block a lot and try to kill before being killed.

Ninja Gaiden

Gamecell
19 October 2007
  • Conclusion: Overall, Ninja Gaiden is a good game, flawed by technical problems and repetitious gameplay. It has moments of magic when you are battling against a group of ninjas, the camera is holding up well, and you lay some seriously cool moves on them - you almost forget about the annoyances, but then you come across ninjas who have guns! and you try to attack them but the camera gets in the way, and it just gets frustrating and annoying.
  • Pros: Ninjas are cool, and the fighting can be great fun., It's, pretty at times., It's nice to see a combat game instead of a button masher.
  • Cons: The camera system doesn't work., Repetitive gameplay., Incredibly frustrating at times.

  • Conclusion: 16 /20 Assassin's Creed : Brotherhood joue parfaitement son rôle de spin-off qui fait office de véritable suite à AC2. Même si l’idée de n’évoluer principalement que dans Rome pouvait effrayer, il faut avouer que les développeurs ont fait du bon travail pour nous proposer une ville vaste, bien modélisée et composée de quartiers différents, le tout restant homogène.
  • Pros: Les bonnes bases d’AC2…, Bien exploitées et améliorées, La richesse du mode solo, Doublages de qualité, Rome vaste, variée et homogène, Accessible, Histoire plaisante, La base de données, Les informations à découvrir, La confrérie des assassins, Le système de gestion appliqué à Rome, Jouer sans les HUD, Les défis de l’Animus, La compatibilité Uplay, Multijoueur très bien pensé…, Original et bien intégré…
  • Cons: Souffrant de gros soucis de connexion, Peu de cartes et de modes en multi, Toujours des bugs, Caméra pas optimale, Quelques détails graphiques, Fin décevante, Globalement très facile, Parfois un air de déjà-vu, déjà joué

19 December 2005
  • Conclusion: Ninja Gaiden är censurerat i Europa, tydligen kan vi inte hugga huvudet eller armarna av mänskliga fiender. Vem bryr sig egentligen? Istället fick vi ett storslaget spel med makalös grafik som blåser liv i ninjagenren med besked.

Xbox Gazette
15 December 2005
  • Conclusion: Ninja Gaiden offre une action intense et prenante avec des graphismes toujours au top de la Xbox. Cette version Black s'ouvre au plus grand nombre grâce à son prix réduit, et à deux nouveaux modes de difficulté, l'un étant réservé aux débutants, l'autre aux guerriers endurcis. Ces derniers apprécieront sans nul doute les 50 missions qui offrent un challenge de taille et de quoi les occuper longtemps.
  • Pros: ralentissements en 50Hz, aucun bonus accessible dès le départ
  • Cons: petit prix, combats intenses et de qualité, graphismes toujours au top, nombreux nouveaux bonus

  • Conclusion: Un gameplay parfaitement rodé, évolutif, et très bien fini, un moteur graphique superbe, des animations de dingue, Ninja Gaiden est une franche réussite aussi bien ludique que technique. Dommage que la carotte nous motivant à boucler le titre ne soit pas plus conséquente. Car tout de suite, la caméra capricieuse, et la difficulté parfois exagérée ressortent comme d'atroces défauts.
  • Pros: Des combats de ouf, Moteur graphique percutant, Etre ninja, ca botte
  • Cons: Scénar' bien court, Perso secondaires pas toujours charismatiques, Caméra parfois crispante, Quelques bloquages, forcément..., Des boss un peu relou, Beaucoup d'allers/retours entre points de sauvegarde, forcément...
