Conclusion: Trop de défauts habitent Crossborad 7 pour en faire un bon jeu, voire un titre moyen. Pourtant, le titre de Konami ne manque pas de contenu, c'est même là son point fort. Mais l'expérience de jeu se déplore au niveau de la réalisation. On s'ennuie sur le titre, notre personnage ne nous transporte pas du tout dans l'ambiance tant il peine lui-même à se mouvoir avec vivacité. Le challenge ne manque pas mais il est desservi par un manque de dynamisme général.
Pros: Un vrai contenu, Des challenges présents
Cons: Le manque de vitesse pesant, L'absence d'un mode histoire, Des personnages peu amusants, Les temps de chargement
Excerpt: Most of us have at least one thing - one talent, skill or party trick - that we do really well. Some of us can kick footballs (not me), some of us can dance like pros (not me), and some of us can write for a living (debatable). Somewhere out there there's a man who has a God-given knack for doing that stoner-surf dude voice.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is There’s a few things to be said while playing CrossBoard 7 for the Xbox Kinect – unfortunately none of them can be mentioned in this article. The game literally asks to be thrown out the door thanks to awkward controls, a host of annoying characters, and generally mediocre gameplay.
Excerpt: Here we are again for the next Kinect instalment in Crossboard 7 , a snowboarding game for this awesome new technology on the 360. Throwing away all controllers, Crossboard 7 requires the player to move their body in order to control their gaming avatar in a variety of impressively created "winter" wonderlands.
Conclusion: From its tired mid-1990s ‘cool kid’ chic and offensively putrid design; to the slipshod quality of control that consistently fails to map proper movements into the game’s on-screen action, it’s fair to say that Crossboard 7 is not the ’system seller’ show-piece for Microsoft’s intensively technical Kinect hardware, but more of a case study for developers to learn exactly what not to do with it.
Excerpt: Move Controller Required The Shoot sets our hero in a movie studio with a director to please, taking you through different movie scenes across five genres from Western to Horror through Mob to Monster; the camera leading the player around, allowing them to concentrate on killing the hoards of monsters that appear on the screen. Yes, rail shooters are nothing new in the world of consoles but they are staple fare for a motion controller aping the gun of the arcades.
Conclusion: Not the biggest or deepest game ever, but at least it works as you'd expect it to. Grown-up gamers might find it a little too simplistic, but if you're looking for something light-hearted and accessible for the kids this Chrimbo then Crossboard 7 is just about worth a punt.
Conclusion: So far Kinect has a lot of games that are similar in nature and Crossboard 7 is no different in that respect, as it does do a lot of things similarly to Sonic Free Riders . Though while it is far from a perfect game it does do give a much better boarding experience than its counterpart.
