Test Islands of Wakfu

Generation NT
27 June 2011
  • Conclusion: Au fil de votre progression, vous apprendrez comment gérer le wakfu du monde  : Nora a la capacité de l'absorber depuis des plantes ou insectes afin de regagner des points de vie, tandis que Efrim expulse de l'énergie de vie pour raviver des plantes. Ces dernières lâchent d'ailleurs des pots de miel, objets nécessaires à l'amélioration des conditions de vos personnages (coups plus puissants, meilleure défense, nouvelles techniques).
  • Pros: La réalisation graphique et sonore, Environnements envoûtants, Prise en main intéressante, Mode coopératif
  • Cons: Difficulté parfois frustrante, Scénario difficile d'accès pour les non-initiés à la franchise, Phases de QTE inutiles, Énigmes parfois mal amorcées, Durée de vie légère

Islands of Wakfu Review

25 June 2011
  • Excerpt: Welcome to island paradise Wakfu, your one-stop destination for pixie genocide. The name might ring familiar to anyone with a faint awareness of '25 million registered players' MMO Dofus, an anime-styled product from French developer Ankama Games. Islands of Wakfu is its action RPG prequel on XBLA, a game that, at least superficially, is one of the most creative offerings of the last five years.

  • Excerpt: Islands of Wakfu is an action-adventure game, the streamlined elements of both genres creating a title that wouldn’t have felt out of place during the 16-bit generation. Islands of Wakfu is gloriously presented from the moment it begins. A lot of care and attention has gone into how the game looks and sounds. The music score is rich, deep and varied from piano movements to more abstract sounds.

  • Conclusion: Concept: Explore a gorgeous animated world while juggling questionably implemented combat and puzzles Graphics: The high point of the game. The colorful world and characters are delightful Sound: The unusual-but-interesting music is constantly shifting style Playability: Sluggish controls and sloppy combat diminish the fun Entertainment: A compelling adventure, if only you could overlook the subpar action Replay: Moderately Low

  • Excerpt: With comic books, toys, apparel, and the tactical MMORPGs Dofus and Wakfu to its credit, the “World Of Twelve” has been steadily expanding its borders over the last five years, mostly abroad. Not everyone thinks leveling up a character’s baking proficiency is a worthwhile use of time, though, so Ankama Games has decided to retain the setting and ditch the character-creation screen in its first Xbox Live Arcade offering, Islands Of Wakfu , which features lush, hand-drawn...

  • Excerpt: Good looks can get you only so far. Once you open your mouth and start babbling about New Age spirituality mumbo-jumbo - wherein nothing really dies, but instead is reincarnated as some flower-based gel - you tend to sound a bit odd. Kind of like this new Live Arcade game. With how much exposition Wakfu crams into its first level, you might think you're embarking on some sort of epic journey: A priest's gone missing, aliens invade, and you discover the doe-eyed...
  • Pros: + Pretty cel-shaded graphics and character designs.
  • Cons: - Ridiculous, inconsequential storyline., - Monotonous combat., ? So what exactly is Wikfi, anyways? (We're still pretty confused by the whole thing.)

  • Summary: Ankama ne fait pas que des MMO et des bande-dessinées. Le développeur français se lance dans l’aventure console avec un premier titre exclusif au Xbox Live de Microsoft : Islands of Wakfu. Un jeu qui fourmille de bonnes idées malheureusement sous exploitées et qui se concentre sur ce qu’il fait le moins bien.
