THE GOOD: This game has a lot of great things in it. There are so many collectable items and secrets to find that it will keep you busy for many a summer. I have even found myself playing hours on end with no breaks just discovering new and exciting areas and searching for treasure. Seriously, the amount of hours you will spend on this if you like it.....yeah. A LOT. And those will be enjoyable too. I know it was for me. =]
Besides there being so many collectables in this game, the bosses are really cool to fight. Each has a specific weakness against a certain element and when you defeat them, they give you a lens corresponding to their element. As you progress, you will level up your lens (III being the highest) and will be able to inflict serious damage to bosses compared to what you were in the beginning!
With your element lens come your frames and batteries. There many MANY frames for your Gun Del Sol. Each has a unique ability that will come in really handy throughout the game, es...
THE GOOD: -Forces pale and pallid video game players to get outside every now and then. -Mysterious elements with more of the puzzle revealed after every play. -Pulls off solar panel as a decent game device, as opposed to a gimmick.
THE BAD: -Some sound effects can get annoying. -Dragging coffins through dungeons is annoying.
SUMMARY: When I heard about this game, I was excited. I was thinking "what a brilliant concept!" But then I got to thinking about the fact that maybe it was some kind of gimmick and it really wasn't that well-made of a game. But I bought it anyways and I was all the more pleased.
Boktai is an incredible RPG that incorporates sunlight in order for you to charge weapons and defeat enemies, forcing gamers to actually get off their lazy butts, (myself included,) and go outside. (Sorry lazybones, household lamps don't work.)
The RPG element is definitely there. Your character has to save the world from the undead, just as his late-father attempted to do before him. Howe...
THE GOOD: Huh? (looks for "good" in this "game") Well..OK graphics and sound
THE BAD: What a joke. Infuriating gameplay. What a ripoff. Solar sensor does not always work very well. A hazard to your health.
SUMMARY: I consider myself very picky when it comes to grading and reviewing games. I only have a few games that I consider perfect. I just can't help noticing a stray jagged edge, a gameplay bug here or there, or any other little, annoying thing in any other games. I decided to buy this game, due to the great reviews, but I came to one conclusion.
"This is the worst game ever."
The game starts off simple enough. A cheesy, but dark, voice that tells the story. You are this kid who must vanquish an evil menace.
OOOOOHHHHHHH! Scary.....well not really.
I couldn't help but noticing the plot is seriously stolen from countless, better games, like Legend of Zelda, The Final Fantasy Series, and the Mario games. But forget about that for a second. To defeat enemies, you must use the power of our Sun to...
