XboxFamily reviews Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of Doom (6.5/10)

XboxFamily.com - 02 January 2008:

"Overall this game isn't what fans of the first two Kingdom Under Fire titles would be expecting. Blueside has attempted to completely rethink the franchise. There's a reason most developers don't try this with a hit franchise. It rarely works. But the foundation for a nice franchise spin-off is there. It just isn't ready. With last-gen graphics, most players won't be impressed. But that shouldn't turn you off. The gameplay is what matters. Sadly, that is what will turn you off. The hack-n-slash gameplay with some RPG elements tacked on just can't justify the price in this age of gaming. Just like the weapons feature, it feels like Blueside synthesized a poor-man's Diablo with Ninety Nine Nights. If you're thinking about this one, rent it. Better yet, before you invest the three bucks on that, check out the free demo on XBLM."

Pros:
+ Graphics look solid, but last-gen
+ RPG elements don't feel realized

Cons:
- The reviewer would rather play N3
- Has potential in future titles, but not here

XF Final Score: 6.5 (out of 10)

XBOX 360 strikes first this year, with yet another AAA title.

So it's a 6.5/10, so what? 6.5 is close enough to 7 and 7 is close enough to 9/10.

mintaro3401d ago

wow dude, wow u must be really desperate for some contraversy, i bet you like starting flame wars

captainpwn3401d ago

and Captin PWN is also laughing just thinking about the 360 lineup for 2008.

captainjy3401d ago

What a freaking tool. I bet you can count on finger how many AAA titles the PSFree has, if that. The only thing the PSFree is good for is a toaster. You Sony fanboys wish you had Gears, Halo 3 and Bioshock.

heyheyhey3401d ago

nope im pretty sure i dont need another generic shooter aka halo 3 and i already have gears and bioshock- for my pc and then after that the only i want form the 360 is mass effect and since thats gonna get ported now that EA own bioware, i guess im fine for the 360 games

KillJoi993401d ago

Unlike Sony MS pays for exclusives. The point beeing, youll never see Mass Effect on DelayStation.

It has to be multiplat. Microsoft has absolutely no good first party devs.

This is just proof.

Way to start out 08!

If we are to approve reviews of Xbox family then whats wrong with SDF
Reported by: TANOD "

An xbox site review can't be compared to Sony Defense Force who gives every game a 10/10. There are plenty of quality Sony sites out there. SDF is just an embarrassment to Sony fans. It's a funny site as a joke, but SDF can't be taken seriously.

Maybe xboxfamily is a Sony site since they gave an Xbox 360 exclusive a low score? Stop with the whining TANOD

"An xbox site review can't be compared to Sony Defense Force who gives every game a 10/10"(offical quote before you EDIT)
I know this site is a joke but to accuse them of giving every game 10/10 is extreme fanboyism i,ve seen some of there reviews for xbox and wii games and they never give them game's no were near a 10

Exactly genius. Those are games from other consoles. SDF is a joke because they give every Sony game 10/10 or (get this) higher ratios. They give games on other consoles crazy low scores. That's why they aren't taken seriously, because SDF is meant to be a joke (we pray).

Please tell me you understood what I meant. I know that no one is stupid enough to think SDF should be considered a legitimate review source for any reviews. I am literally begging you to say "just kidding", because if you seriously think that a site named Sony Defense Force, that gives every Sony game 10/10 or higher (Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction Review: 10.5/10) should be considered legit, you either own the site or are mentally handicapped.

Please quote that.

As titles for the PLAYSTATION 3 Computer Entertainment System shine and recieve 8's and 9's across the critics, XBOX 360 Video game and Entertainment system titles are left getting 6.5's and 3.0's(Captain PWN coughs at Two Worlds). Captain PWN is excited for PS3's future and Captain PWN is now laughing looking at the crummy line up for the Microsoft corps XBOX 360 Video Game and Entertainment System. Captain PWN believes the AAA titles PS3 has to bring this year will lead its system to victory, and leave consumers of the XBOX 360 Video game and entertainment system playing Halo 3. But, Halo 3 recieved a 9, didn't it? Captain PWN asks himself. Then, Captain PWN realizes that it only recieved a 9 because all reviewers recieved a $1000 gift bag with it.

heyheyhey3401d ago

oh well- but since when do dynasty warrior-esque games (apart form the great DW itself) do well? ok fine thats not true a few have but not many and this unfortunately int one of them
