Conclusion: For a small outlay of MS points, Frogger captures that old school feel that will bring many a gamer back to the quarter stacking days. The controls are tight, the updated graphics are snazzy, and the online options are pretty nifty. Definitely check out the demo at the very least, whether you’re feeling “froggy” or not.
Excerpt: It’s irking to see a series with plenty of untapped potential fail to claim what’s rightfully made possible through the immediate gratification of a platform such as the Xbox 360‘s Live Arcade. Although perhaps we should be thankful that the developer’s didn’t over-exert themselves over another broken platformer nightmare, such as so many Xbox titles.
Conclusion: There are a few online modes involving versus, which is going against each other to see who can get the most points before dying, and c-op which is working together to get high scores and a speed versus game against the game and each other. There are a total of 12 achievements for this game and it certainly is great for a Frogger fan and are easy achievements. Nowadays the game is not to popular online but a great single player game nevertheless.
Summary: Frogger for Live Arcade is basically just another old school title ripped out of a compilation pack, and a five dollar fee attached to it. That said, the game is still solid, definitely prettier than any of the other old-school Live Arcade titles out there and is more of a history lesson than a totally fun experience for the whole family.
Excerpt: To me, Konami's Frogger rekindles an old classic that is about as canonical in gaming as Pac-Man is. For those too young to remember it, you may have seen its many derivatives or clones (Froggee comes to mind). Frogger must make it across a busy street then a pond with shifting logs.
Summary: Rewind back to 1997 and PlayStation gamers will undoubtedly remember the game that started a series which has shipped over 47 million units worldwide across all of Sony’s PlayStation consoles. We’re now up to their fifth instalment of the series, and here I am reviewing a ‘segment’ of the game in Gran Turismo 5 Prologue.
Pros: Still the same ol' Gran Turismo, Superb car models, A great appetiser
Cons: Online is flawed, A few frame-rate issues, AI isn't challenging enough
Summary: Frogger erblickte erstmals im Juni 1981 das Tageslicht der Videospielgeschichte. Das erste Arcadespiel rund um den hüpfenden Frosch wurde seinerzeit von Konami entwickelt und von dem heutigen Videospiele-Riesen Sega produziert. Nach diversen Spielhallen-Versionen unternahm man auch erste Gehversuche auf heimischen Konsolen, wie dem damals beliebten Atari 2600. Die Arcade-Sektion der Xbox 360 und der 25.
Pros: + Frogger ist Kult, + Multiplayer-Modus, + süchtig machendes Spielprinzip..., - ...das aber auch eintönig ist, - standig sich wiederholende Levels, - magerer Sound, - keine wirklich neuen Ideen gegenüber dem Original
