Excerpt: Sometimes you just have to admit you're wrong. It's the mark of a bigger man. As Kikizo's personal trainers and tailors will tell you, we're absolute bloody titans - gods among insects, sort of thing, exemplars of our species. If ever there were a Nobel Prize for sheer personal integrity, we'd be top of the list. Morgan Freeman's got nothing on us. . We were wrong to call him a "pillock of the first rank", and a "3-for-1 bumper edition of sodden one-liners".
Conclusion: There are 10 Story Related achievements, and 2 Achievements that require skill (Not Unlike Resident Evil Code: Veronica X Which you may certainly check out my review there, and Resident Evil 4 ) These achievements are at first off-putting, but I do know that they are obtainable, and require alot of patience! CONCLUSION Great Game. 4.75 out of 5.
Summary: Oh, what a joy that Prince of Persia Classic is. It’s priced at 800 Microsoft Points (translated into $10) and is definitely worth it for adventure fanatics. The Sands of Time trilogy is one of my favorite in recent memory and this helps build upon the legacy. Lastly, there are two bonus modes to play -- Survival and Time Trials -- both that offer little in replay value. In the end, Prince of Persia offers a quick bang for the buck.
Pros: The platforming is among the best in today's video games.
Excerpt: Build up some speed, making sure your steps are perfectly timed as you climb up a wall and quickly roll past the closing gate. Keep moving… always, moving. Next up, a seemingly straightforward transition from point A to B in an empty corridor only to be met with shaky tile after shaky tile. Quickly jump past the spiked floor, over the unknown abyss below.
Summary: Prince of Persia Classic sets the bar high for what a classic game remake should look like. Not only is this one of the most exciting Xbox Live Arcade games currently available, it's also one of the best looking. Regardless of the price, this is one adventure you should think about going on! This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on. However, that does not always apply to classic/retro games.
Conclusion: The other problem isn’t a deal breaker, but it does add a bit more frustration to the mix. The sword combat doesn’t seem like it’s precisely timed to your button presses—sometimes very loose, while other times it’s nice and tight. When it’s loose is where you’ll have some trouble, especially if you’re up against one of the later foes, where timing your blocks and swings is critical to success.
Excerpt: If you've ever heard someone say, "Back in my day, video games were hard! We didn't have fancy save systems or checkpoints! We died all the time, and we liked it!" chances are pretty good that person has a tale or two about Prince of Persia. Originally released in 1989 for the Apple II and then ported to pretty much every other system of the time, Prince of Persia was defined by its top-notch animation, tough combat, and challenging platforming elements.
Pros: Forgiving difficulty makes the game more fun, but still challenging, Updated visuals make the game feel fresh, Nice mix of combat and platforming, Makes constantly dying fun
Cons: Original game doesn't seem to be a part of the package, Being able to rescue The Princess after 60 minutes is unfulfilling
Summary: Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was ‘somewhat’ of a success and whilst that was expected to a certain degree from past title successes, no one expected it to take off quite as much as it did. Years have passed and the developer of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has finished their next product, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Hailed as the biggest game launch in history, with sales to back it up, Modern Warfare 2 (MW2) was never expected to disappoint.
Pros: Paced beautifully so you’re always on the run, Set pieces will literally blow you away, Gameplay and gun control is spot on
Cons: No co-op for the core campaign, Campaign is quite short, Multiplayer levelling can be a disadvantage
