  • Excerpt: Have you ever known evil to triumph in a film’ You’ve got to admit, we’ve seen some magnificent villains over the years. Take Die Hard ’s Hans Gruber, for example. Nice suit, range of accents and a beard so fetching it’d put golden retrievers out of business in a month. The fella had a decent plan, too. $600 million in negotiable bearer bonds and earning 20% on a beach, as I recall. Knowing all that, imagine the sequel if Hans had won.

Yager Review

  • Excerpt: Yager, the new dogfighting action game for the Xbox from the eponymous Yager development team out of Germany and Kemco, has only recently arrived on American shores after a year's delay. First glances of the Yager project became available all the way back in 2002, when then-publisher THQ released a few tantalizing bits of information about the game. At that time, Yager caused a stir with its visual resplendence and omnidirectional, high-G combat.
  • Pros: Complex, nuanced controls, Great dogfighting and stealth gameplay, Extra goals, Bargain price
  • Cons: Presentation is dated, Levels are of inconsistent quality, Monotonous at times, Not as free-form as it seems

  • Excerpt: Since the new generations of consoles hit the market, gamers may have noticed the fact that not too many flight simulator type games have come down the pike.

  • Conclusion: So, with its lovely graphics (the skies, landscapes, water, huge, detailed ships and superb flames and explosions all look wonderful) Yager is a graphical showcase. Sadly, the entire game is constantly polluted by stupid controls and a main character (Magnus) that will end up getting on your nerves. Yager's probably worth a rent, just because it's the only game of its type on Xbox, and so you can have a look at the pretty explosions. Disappointing.
  • Pros: The graphics are mostly lovely., The explosions are a real treat - simply the, we've ever seen.
  • Cons: Crap weapons., Crap control system., Crap main character., No feeling of speed., It's an unsatisfying, adrenalin-free experience and a bit crap.

  • Summary: This PAL-only Xbox title may be one of the best looking games this generation, but we all know that you can't judge a book by its cover.

  • Conclusion: Yager ist ein gutes Spiel geworden, wenn es auch zu schwer ausgefallen ist und man sich mehr Speicherpunkte gewünscht hätte. Ich denke aber, dass im Falle von Yager die positiven Aspekte überwiegen. Der hohe Umfang, die Story und die Klasse Aufmachung machen das Spiel zum Hit-Titel. Wenn man sich erst einmal an das etwas ungewöhnliche Gameplay gewöhnt hat, steht dem Spielspaß aber im Großen und Ganzen nichts mehr im Wege.

  • Conclusion: Nichtsdestotrotz hat Yager unter dem Strich die hohen Erwartungen in allen Belangen erfüllt, wenn nicht sogar übertroffen. Sofern Ihr Euch nur ansatzweise mit der Thematik anfreunden könnt, gehört das SciFi-Epos in jede gut sortierte Spielesammlung. Mir bleibt daher nur ein Glückwunsch an die Jungs von Yager Development für dieses beachtliche Xbox-Erslingswerk - weiter so!

  • Conclusion: Propulsé médiatiquement en haut de l'affiche, Yager n'en reste pas moins qu'un simple shoot, bien loin de révolutionner le genre. Le scénario bien tourné ne fera pas oublier la répétition des missions, et l'inintérêt des objectifs. Reste une interface et une prise en main rapide et agréable. Mais le jeu n'étant jouable qu'en solo... la convivialité ne sera pas non plus au rendez-vous.
  • Pros: Un scénario bien ficelé Un moteur graphique qui en veut Des persos charismatiques, ce qui est assez rare dans ce type de jeu, Interface simple et intuitive
  • Cons: Monotonie des missions Pas de multi Jeu trop court
