Undertow Review

25 September 2008
  • Excerpt: The key to understanding what Undertow is all about is in the title - an undertow is a strong subsurface flow of water returning seaward from the shore resulting usually from wave action. And that's what it is - some serious underwater wave action.

True achievements

  • Conclusion: Most of the achievements are easily obtained although completing it on the hardest mode and geting 10,000 kills is a bit of a r8 grind. It takes quite a while and gets boring.

Expert Review

5 December 2007
  • Excerpt: Undertow is what Xbox Live Arcade needs more of: a simple premise with perfect execution and excellent multiplayer through Live. Play with up to 16 players through Live or split-screen locally or System Link. Or just add bots.
  • Pros: ups: Graphics, controls, upgrade system, deep strategy, 16 player through Live, split screen, Sys-link, Sound effects are great,
  • Cons: downs: Sometimes the blue team can blend into the background, upgrading in the thick of things is tough, voice acting could be better

International Cricket 2010

Console Monster
21 August 2008
  • Summary: E3, Wimbledon and the World Cup are all huge events that have just been around this past month so Codemasters thought it would be a good idea to release a cricket game slap bang in the middle just for good measure.
  • Pros: A cricket game for cricket fans, Third person 'Be a Pro' like camera angle, --
  • Cons: Not nearly enough players playing LIVE, Visuals could do with a polish, The game will go unnoticed by almost all gamers

5 September 2008
  • Excerpt: Avec sa vision apocalyptique d'un monde ruiné par la folie de ses habitants, Undertow a tout d'un oiseau de mauvais augure. Le titre de Chair Entertainment semble effectivement vouloir nous démontrer la vacuité du combat de Nicolas Hulot pour sauver la banquise.
