Gameloft again?! Yes, another new game featuring impressive graphics, ridiculous soundtrack and music effects and partially entertaining gameplay.
Now do not get me wrong. I said partially because while I love RPG type of games, I do not like it if the game lets you move the view around, facing up and/or down. However, those who do not care about this feature should find the game entertaining.
If they made it like Dungeon Hunter 1 and 2, I would have wanted to finish this game.
Wild Blood does require a whopping 2GB of data. But hey! If the game looks this good, it is worth it, right? I remember the same thing with The Bard’s Tale. And Unreal Technology? Yes! Just like Infinity Blade.
Become the legendary and brutal Sir Lancelot, fight off the legions of Hell and challenge the mighty King Arthur, who has been enchanted by Morgana. Travel across 10 breathtaking levels on your journey to Avalon with the help of Sir Gawain of the Knights of the Round Table.
You can also play multiplayer with your friends of up to 8 friends in the impressive Team Deathmatch (4 vs. 4) and Capture the Flag modes.
There are many enemies that you will encounter along the way. Face around 20 different enemies including epic bosses. A game this big should keep you occupied for a long time ;).
Funny thing about this game for the Android platform is that I finished the game where ironically I was stuck in the same game in my PSP. If you have played Prince of Persia, then this game is more of the same. Maybe the controls in the PSP did not give me enough control to move my character around. And that was in the early part of the game.
Imagine my surprise when I flawlessly surpassed that hindered obstacle that had me stuck in the PSP. Even though I played this in easy mode, the only easy thing there is how you match up against soldiers. The obstacles remain the same no matter what mode you play.
The graphics? Excellent! Gameloft has the best games available for the Android platform. Assassin’s Creed features a variety of acrobatic moves, 6 different weapons for both close combat and long-range attacks (swords, daggers, grappling hook and bombs), skill based mini games put your patience and dexterity to the test, unique dramatic tension, intensified by 3D cinematic cutscenes and character voices.
There is a little flaw here though but I am not sure if this applies to all Android devices. In my Galaxy S2, the game tends to disable the character’s move forward and jump action at some point so I had to quit the game and run it again. This movement is important as you cannot move forward to the next obstacle.
I am not sure if this was a rush of porting the game to make it compatible with the Galaxy S2. It was annoying but still, overall the game is superb! Great graphics, great music and sound effects and great game play.
It is just too bad that Altair did not have a happy ending as the ending scenes show Adha being whisked away on a ship. Oops … spoiler alert! 😉
Avatar HD for the Android platform is developed by Gameloft, well known around the Android universe as having the best set of games.
Avatar’s game does not follow the movie’s plot in every detail but you can see the same (though not complete) world of James Cameron’s Avatar and embark on a journey of redemption and discovery two decades prior to the events in the film.
Play as Captain Ryan Lorenz into the body of an experimental human-Na’vi hybrid, becoming the first avatar. I played this in easy mode and there were a few wherein I did not have an easy time. Although the combos for the avatar are repetitive, you get to upgrade your weaponry and armor as you accomplish mission by mission.
The game features around 15 levels, from the human-built mines and military strongholds to beautiful waterfalls and lush jungles that come alive at night with bioluminescent plants.
The controls can be a bit sketchy at times. The avatar character tends to move and evade backwards when it is moving so sometimes I got miffed when instead of jabbing forward to lunge at the enemy, my character tumbles backward.
Still, I enjoyed every press of my thumbs with this game. Absolutely one of the best games for Android. And it is not just the same arcade style shooting that you can do in this game. There are also game plays where you battle enemy ships in the skies of Pandora riding on a banshee in shoot ’em-up sequences.
