Summary: This product arrived quickly and appeared to be in perfect condition. Opened on Christmas Day, it was disappointing to discover it didn't play on our 4gb XBox. Nevertheless, £65 later, after purchasing the all important HDD Drive, we were frustrated to discover that it still won't play. "An update may be available" it advised but when you go on to Microsoft and click 'updates', they don't appear to have heard of 'Voodoo Vince'.
Summary: I still enjoy my platformers, there a dying breed, games like Jak & Daxter with the great humour and who can forget the old classics like Super Mario Bros. I think Voodoo Vince isn't in the category of classic platformer but its fun and funny and has no frustrating levels...so far anyway as i haven't entirely completed it yet!
Vince, the Voodoo doll, He's a mystery known to just a few...

Summary: Voodoo Vince was the first Xbox game I ever played. From the minute I started playing, I knew I wanted an Xbox. Maybe It's just warm fuzzy nostalgia but, the graphics are great, the levels are kooky and interesting (and a little creepy at times), The music is great and memorable, and the voodoo powers you use are hilarious. If you want a new gaming experience and aren't put off by the game's difficulty level, Voodoo Vince is the way to go.
Excerpt: Voodoo Vince - Feel his pain! This game can only be found on the X-Box and is one of those games that once played on a friends machine will instantly make you want to go out and buy your own - yes, this is a good game and yes - it is one of the few platform games available on the console.
Pros: Awesome gameplay - great graphics - sing a long soundtrack - packed with levels
Excerpt: Xbox is pretty thin on the ground when it comes to platformers. Microsoft games studios hopes to fill that void with voodoo vince. So how does it compare to the big boys of the platforming genre, like mario and jak? I actually think it is a great platformer/action game. The concept of using voodoo to harm the enemies is a great idea. The presentation of the game is excellent, and the charm of voodoo vince as a character makes him an instant classic in my books.
Pros: Great graphics . Innovative ideas . Brilliant boss battles .
Excerpt: This game isn't really challenging and more for the kids. It attracted me at first at there was nothing like this game on the xbox and i suppose their still isn't much in it for the adults. It does seem to have a unique game play to it which is possibly due to the voodoo powers. The problem with the game is that it lacks story and the puzzles are pretty simple. If you enjoy simple games then i recommend this for you.
Excerpt: This game is about a magic shop whos owner is kidnapped. During the kidnapping the bandits have an accident which bring a voodoo doll called vince to life. The aim of the game is to rescue the lady and defeat the evil monsters that stand in vince' way. You control the voodoo doll and are coached through the game by signs which teach you new techniques and magic tricks to help you defeat the monsters.
Excerpt: Voodoo vince is about a voodoo doll who gets animated by his owner after she was kidnapped by a group of thugs. So, it becomes Vince's duty to find and save his owner. The title is a single player experience which takes you through a large variety of environments. It involves the usual platformer routines of jumping around on platforms, defeating enemies and simple puzzles which allow you to progress. So what seperates this from all the other bog standard platformers?
Summary: I purchased this title as the xbox has a severe lack of quality platform games. I still haven't found one that can live up to Mario 64, and voodoo vince is no exception. After reading reviews I thought this would be a quality game - I was wrong. I got fed up with this very quickly and would not reccommend it.
