Beowulf

True achievements
19 February 2008
  • Conclusion: This is what all video games used to be like! (I think people are spoiled these days by games like Fable III which you can walk right through without dieing once) Having the voice talent of folks like Ray Winston and Anthony Hopkins was a huge plus for this game, and the art and animation is solid. Unfortunately, it's short -- too short to be worth $60 bucks; you'll finish it in about 6 hours or so, even on Legendary.

Beowulf: The Game

  • Excerpt: Name: Beowulf the Game Genre: Action Platform: Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and PSP (Reviewed on Xbox 360) Robert Zemeckis’s reimagining of Beowulf didn’t floor every moviegoer. I personally loved the movie and thought it looked great, retelling the Old English poem I have read several times in an original way. Making the game must have seemed like a good idea for Ubisoft because the movie looked enough like a video game for the transition to be an easy one.

  • Conclusion: Eine Schande, was hier mit dem Material gemacht wurde. Mag der CG Film noch wenigstens Geschmackssache sein, so ist das Spiel ein Lizenzschnellschuss ohne jeden Hauch von Qualität. Miese Designentscheidungen, ein grausam lahmes und anspruchsloses Gameplay, eine fast unauchbare Kamera, unfaire, frustige Stellen paaren sich hier mit grässlicher Grafik und durchschnittlichem Sound.

Beowulf - Recensione

  • Summary: Beowulf non si salva. Non per gli appassionati di un genere in risalita nel panorama ludico moderno, non per i fautori del lungometraggio (ammesso e non concesso che possano esserci).

  • Conclusion: Beowulf: The Game is een game die je, tenzij je zeer geïnteresseerd bent in oude legendes en geilt op ontzettend veel quick time events, beter links kunt laten liggen. De game legt een goede basis maar slaat vervolgens de plank finaal mis. De besturing werkt goed en de audio is van hoog niveau maar visueel gezien weet de game niet te bekoren. Daarnaast is de A.I. echt om te janken en hangt het verhaal aan zijden draadjes aan elkaar.
  • Pros: Besturing werkt goed, Audio van hoog niveau, Het vechten is cool
  • Cons: Waar is het verhaal?, A.I. die je grijze haren bezorgd, Visueel achterhaald

  • Excerpt: Såkaldte ’spilmatiseringer’ har en historisk vane for at være af en noget tvivlsom kvalitet. På nær nogle få undtagelser som Chronicles of Riddick, GoldenEye samt en håndfuld Star Wars-spil, fremstår de fleste filmbaserede spil som både ufærdige og sjuskede, og sædvanligvis bliver filmens miljø og karakterer blot overført til et allerede afprøvet koncept for at holde udviklingstiden på et absolut minimum.

  • Conclusion: Beowulf non si salva. Non per gli appassionati di un genere in risalita nel panorama ludico moderno, non per i fautori del lungometraggio (ammesso e non concesso che possano esserci). Le carenze principali riguardano la varietà del sistema di gioco, l’eccessiva facilità e la sua fisiologica ripetitività, il level design pessimo dal punto di vista artistico e strutturale.
