The Cursed Crusade (EU Ver)

True achievements
16 January 2012
  • Conclusion: As far as the achievements go this game is a cake walk, I have put in around 20 hours play and I only have my nightmare playthrough to finish for game completion so if you can look past the tedious cutscenes and frustrating combat system then it may well end up as a good weekend rental for the more dedicated score whores.

The Cursed Crusade review (X360)

HonestGamers
11 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Buried deep within Atlus' The Cursed Crusade is a good game. At times I can almost see it. However, most of the time, that goodness is buried below too much mediocrity to easily be noticed. Clunky action combines with perhaps the most cinema I've ever seen in a third-person hack-and-slash action game to create a title that feels more like a lackluster movie-to-game reproduction than an original creation.

Expert Review

GameSpot
13 October 2011
  • Summary: UK REVIEW--One thing should already be clear about The Crusades: They were extremely unpleasant. A Christian military campaign quickly turned sour, with knights becoming little more than mercenaries as they rampaged around and sacked cities across the Holy Land. In short, it was a time of strife and bloodshed.
  • Pros: Lots of weapon combinations to play around with
  • Cons: Sluggish, awkward controls, Fighting is a chore, Far too repetitive in all aspects, A multitude of technical failings, Entirely forgettable story

  • Conclusion: The Short Version: The focus on co-op can't save this game from being a broken, rushed and ultimately boring experience and chances are your friends'll sever all connections with you for making them play it.
  • Pros: Esteban - both as an AI teammate and co-op choice, Supernatural elements are a nice touch, Yeah, now I'm starting to struggle here!
  • Cons: Awful cut scenes, Awful combat, Incredibly repetitive gameplay

The Cursed Crusade Review

  • Summary: The score may seem a tad low, but compared to other games in its field it simply cannot compare. With more managed expectations, though, there is a lot to like about The Cursed Crusade.

Test : The Cursed Crusade sur Xbox 360

XBOX MAG
7 February 2014
  • Summary: Les amateurs de cinéma le savent bien, les blockbusters ne sont pas toujours les plus intéressants à regarder. La même chose est vraie dans le domaine du jeu vidéo. C’est pourquoi, quand un petit éditeur (Atlus, DTP chez nous) lance un jeu original développé par un petit studio français (Kylotonn), nous y portons une attention toute particulière. C’est le cas de ce Cursed Crusade qui dès les premières bande-annonces s’était montré prometteur.
  • Pros: L’histoire, basée sur des faits réels, La durée de vie, Touches d’humour inattendues (et parfois involontaires), Personnages attachants
  • Cons: Des bogues à foison, Rapidement répétitif, Caméra aux fraises, Jouabilité rigide, surtout dans les phases annexes

The Cursed Crusade

26 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Historien tager sit udspring i den efterhånden gennemprøvede inspirationskilde; middelalderen. Vi følger duoen Denz de Bayle samt Esteban Noviembre, som er et par karikerede typer uden den store charme eller kant. Fælles for begge er at de er ramt af en forbandelse, der uheldigvis forvandler dem til en ilddæmon – det sker komplet med flammer overalt samt spidse horn i panden. Vi er i det 12.
  • Pros: Kampene er ganske sjove i starten, Masser af våben, En del solide ideer – på papiret
  • Cons: Ensformigt, Fyldt med fejl, Teknisk middelmådigt, Kedelig historie båret af et utal af tilsvarende mellemsekvenser

  • Conclusion: The Cursed Crusade est un jeu d'action/aventure qui n'est pas à la hauteur de ses ambitions. Décors vides, scénario sans intérêt, personnages dignes d'un mauvais nanar et gameplay à pleurer, cela fait beaucoup de cumul de mandats difficile à pardonner. Une chose attirera l'attention des joueurs : son mode coop fun à jouer, car on peut se moquer à plusieurs d'un titre tout simplement imbuvable en solo, tout juste médiocre à plusieurs.

  • Summary: The Cursed Crusade è un autentico fallimento su ogni fronte. Il gameplay, per quanto basato su molti e interessanti presupposti, si consuma in un button mashing alienante e fine a sé stesso. Da dimenticare anche il comparto grafico-sonoro, che rovina un lavoro artistico comunque degno di nota. Lacunoso il plot, affossato da una sceneggiatura incapace di rendere giustizia a un’ambientazione e a tema centrale potenzialmente intrigante.
