"Why does everybody love this game?"
When I first got my Xbox 360 a year ago at Christmas, I figured I couldn't just have sports game so I decided to buy another game to go along with NBA Live 2006, FIFA and NHL 2k6. I chose Kameo because it was receiving rave reviews and said to myself, well the whole world can't be wrong right? FIFA was a total dud and NBA Live was the game I considered the worst on the Xbox 360, but then I played this game... either the whole world has a completely different idea of what a good game is or I'm simply a moron.
Breathtaking at times, crappy at others. The game seems to be better looking during big battles with all the soldiers and the baddies, or when you can see the scenary. The Kameo character herself isn't that well designed and actually kinda looks like a character you would see on Reboot ( damn I hated that show). All the different creature concepts are ok but I've never seen a wimpier looking dragon in my life.
Meh... it didn't impress me but I wasn't annoyed by the music or the sound effects. In fact, when I play this game ( which now is...never) I usually upload my own music so I don't really care about this game's audio track.
I really hated the controls for this game. The attacks buttons were usually the shoulder buttons and you would transform Kameo using the B,X and Y buttons. In the heat of the action, I would always mistakenly transform my character in to another creature because I would always assume my attack button was the B button.
Fun-Factor (Replay ability) 0/10
Not once while I was playing this game did I think: " Aw...man I don't really want to finish it because it's just so darn good" All I was thinking was... " The creators of this game should all be rounded up, put in a room and forced to play this game 24/7 until each of them died". Still I played it all the way to the end thinking it would get better... it didn't. The only way I could see myself playing this game again is if a very large man with a tear tatooed below his face threatened to kill me if I didn't play it with him. Even then, I'm not sure I wouldn't choose to die, a game like this won't be certainly won't be admitted into the after-life ( if there is such a thing).
I miss the glory days when Rare made good games like Donkey Kong. I think it might actually be Donkey Kong who designed this game. After playing this, I think I wouldn't mind listening to all the Backstreet Boys albums back to back, at least then I might learn a thing or to about how to dance like a idiot. 2.75/10 I would even give NBA Live 2006 a better rating than this bomb. So remember if somebody ever asks you if you want to play Kameo with them, do them a favor take the game disc and just snap it in half.
