Excerpt: A new day, a new X360 review. With some delay but certainly not less important, we today take a look at the second launch game from Rare. Next to Perfect Dark Zero they had also finished Kameo: Elements of Power.
Excerpt: Developer Rare has become somewhat of a “golden child” in the industry. Despite extremely long development times, they have a track record of releasing final products that, for the most part, shine above the rest.
Summary: Rare's Kameo: Elements of Power has been in
development for many years, but has finally arrived along with the Xbox 360
console. The game offers a mix of traditional platforming and adventure
elements, and its play mechanics and structure should be familiar.
Summary: Overall, Kameo is a well deserved experience, although with so many years in development, I would have liked to see a bit more variety in the game. As mentioned before, the graphics are amazing, the audio is superb, the gameplay needs a bit touching up regarding some of the issues that make the game...
Excerpt: Released as the launch title in the US, Kameo hit our shelves along with Project Gotham Racing, DOA4 and Perfect Dark Zero. Shooters, racers and fighters were to be expected however this was the first action adventure game to hit the console and it certainly doesn’t fail to impress.
Summary: To say that Kaemo: Elements of power has a long history would be an understatement. Originally slated to come out for the Gamecube the purchase of developer Rare by Microsoft seemed to indicate that the game would be powered by the big green X of the original Xbox.
Excerpt: In a bit of a late look at Microsoft's attempt to neutralize Zelda, we play over Kameo: Elements of Power to see just how good it is. The beautiful design and brilliant particle effects dazzle, but is the gameplay enough to make you want to own it?
Pros: ups: Beautiful graphics, gameplay keeps interesting over time.
Cons: downs: Co-op is a let-down, battles are less epic than you'd expect.
