Voltron Defender of the Universe Review (Xbox LIVE Arcade)
Gamers Daily News
29 November 2011
Summary: In the end Voltron Defender of the Universe is cool, but short and with some flaws in the gameplay that left me wishing they had rethought some things and put more time into others. It’s not a bad downloadable game but I’m not exactly sure it is worth the price. Plus, it seems like they are trying to cash in more on avatar items than the gameplay.
Excerpt: Even if you have the proper characters on the map, sometimes that’s not enough. You might have placed a bunch of archers but if none of them are leveled up, later foes can shrug off their attacks and rush through an entire gauntlet of archers or wizards.
Summary: Fans of the tower defense genre should most certainly check this game out. Everyone else should try the demo first and if that tickles your fancy, the full version may just be worth owning!
Pros: -Very easy to pick up and get into., -Eases new players into the experience by placing limitations on units., -Amazing soundtrack., -Plenty of replayability for those wanting to try new strategies or perfect the game.
Cons: -Graphics are very low grade for an XBLA title., -More unit types would have been a welcome addition.
Conclusion: Novice Defender—Clear wave 10 on any single map. (5 points) Seasoned Defender—Clear wave 20 on any single map. (5 points) Expert Defender—Clear all the waves on any single map. (5 points) W1 Defender—Clear all the maps in W1. (10 points) W2 Defender—Clear all the maps in W2. (10 points) W3 Defender—Clear all the maps in W3. (15 points) Crystal Hoarder—Clear a single map without losing any crystals. (20 points) Champion Defender—Clear all 12 maps.
Excerpt: In the same way that film making has produced some of its best efforts in independent movies, gaming is firmly following suit. Crayon Physics Deluxe is the first commercial game from newcomer Petri Purho, an independent Finnish developer. What sets this apart from the myriad of other physics based puzzle games out there is two key factors: creativity and style.
Summary: Die Titel, die unten dem Namen Tower Defence bekannt sind, erfreuen sich in letzter Zeit auf allen Systemen sehr hoher Beliebtheit. Gerade im Bereich des Mobile Gamings sprießen diese kniffligen kleinen Strategiespiele en massé aus dem Boden. Diese Popularität hat sich Square Enix zu Nutze gemacht und 2008 den ersten Spin-Off ihrer Final Fantasy Reihe namens Chrystal Guardians als Handygame herausgebracht.
Pros: + einfaches Spielprinzip, + nostalgische Final Fantasy Elemente, - mies umgesetzte Steuerung, - 4:3 Ansicht nicht auf Höhe der Zeit
