STAFF REVIEW of Hunter: The Reckoning (Xbox)

Hunter: The Reckoning Box art Halelulia !! The next "GREAT" XBOX title has arrived! This game is fantastic, hard to put down, and addicting as all get out. I can only come up with 2 critisisms, 1-For as great as the in game graphics are the cut scenes should have been better.2-Auto centering for the camera view. Both of these minor flaws are forgiven about 10 minutes into this game. Hack and slash has never looked better or been more fun!! From now on it will be Halo & Hunter side by side, 2 fantastic reasons to own an XBOX. GO BUY THIS GAME!!!!


Aside from the camera problem this game is very close top perfection. Play as 4 completlly different charecters. Different in weapons, strengths, style...Your blood will race as the soundtrack kicks into overdrive and your sourounded by a sea of undead, master your moves my freind your in for the long haul!! Weapons abound, and believe it or not you do have to accomplish more than just decapitate a few zombies. Each section is mition based, there are secrets to be found, and all of this is delivered in a beatifully presented experience in both sound & vision.


The cut scenes as the game starts kinda makes you say "Hay what gives, this looks like any other game" but let the game start and your in for a visual treat. Detailed environments, awsome charecter rendering, zombies and ghosts never looked so good. The scenery is awe inspiring, the cobble stone walkways, the tombs, the weapons, and the list goes on and on. No disapointments here.


The sound track, unlike Silent Hill 2 were it just creeps you out, is exciting and haert pounding, imagine the movie Blade if you will. Ambient sounds don't dissapoint either, russling leaves, brush, screems, howling, the clang of your battle axe as it accidentally hits a burning car...it's just ALL there!!


Suggestions:
Take a hint from DOA3 and have an add on disk with new charecters & weapons.


Overall: 10.0 / 10
Gameplay: 10.0 / 10
Visuals: 10.0 / 10
Sound: 10.0 / 10
