Fairly average action adventure that will make you want better

Summary: Kameo is action adventure game from a genre that's all to missing in this HD era of console. It plays very much like a platformer mixed with legend of Zelda adventure. But its linear in its central story with very little side activities aside from collecting extra items that you wont really need.
Summary: I purchased this game for the sole purpose of adding it to my collection. At the time of purchase, the box art shown was the original box art. A couple days after placing the order, the box art on the site was changed to the Platinum Hits version, which turns out to be the version they shipped me.
Pros: Fun family game. A nice change from the numerous shooters available on the system. Graphics still hold up, even though it was a launch title. If you have younger children (but old enough to handle 3D controls), it's a no-brainer.
Cons: While I enjoyed the game, it may be too cutesy for a lot of "hardcore" gamers. Might not keep your attention for long due to the simplistic nature of the adventuring and combat.
Summary: I think it's common knowledge these days that Rareware games have often had fairly complicated and somewhat bumpy development cycles. A lot of their games have hit the skids indefinitely, but some, despite jumping platforms, generations, and enduring numerous design changes, have eventually made it...
Conclusion: Put very simply, if you're missing the days of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and haven't got a Nintendo to play it on, or indeed don't have access to Twilight Princess, then Kameo is the closest thing - and it's a decent alternative. Hugely enjoyable, well-paced, beautiful-looking game.
Summary: I almost hate to admit this, but I had an absolute blast playing this game. I picked it up because it was $20 and I knew it was one of the more popular and better reviewed launch games. I actually had very low expectations for this game. At $20, I could throw it in the trash if I didn't like it.
Summary: This is an excellent game. Well worth the $20 or $25 it is going for right now. Graphics are great. Some of the people in it are a bit cartoony which distracts. But every once in awhile some of the visuals are stunning and you begin to appreciate the game a lot more. Game play is great.
