Plné Hry
Chex Quest je skvělá hra, která si i přes pokročilé stáří jistě najde spoustu příznivců. V době, kdy je k dispozici spousta freewarových editorů a graficky kvalitní, leč obsahově plytké (až vyduté) hry vznikají jako na běžícím pásu, se vám dostane všeho, co můžete od střílečky očekávat. A navíc se královsky pobavíte.
Nakonec recenze vždy píšu hodnocení jednotlivých aspektů hry, ale dnes udělám menší výjimku. Jaká je grafika, ozvučení a hratelnost? Pokud se vám líbil Doom stejně jako mně a strávili jste u něj dlouhé hodiny, báli se, co vás čeká za rohem, stříleli a zachránili svět, tak vám Chex Quest přijde jako hezká vzpomínka na staré hrdiny a určitě vás nezklame…

If you enjoyed Doom, and want to share the fun with any children that may be around, then Chex Quest is a very good site. Now instead of digging your hand into a bag of cereal, you can find it right there!
V konečném verdiktu je ale Chexquest docela pěknou hrou, kterou by si měli vyzkoušet přinejmenším všichni fanoušci původního Dooma, změna je život…
Even though it has a few flaws, Chex Quest is still the best computer game ever to be distributed in a box of cereal, so get to it and zorch some Flemoids in your breakfast suit!
Digital Press - Classic Video Games
What you get basically is a Doom clone with full screen animated movie clips at the beginning and end of the game. The hero looks like Buzz Lightyear (Toy Story) wearing waffle armor. The villains are the Flemoids which look like green amoebae. This was done to make it seem less violent. The weapon is the Zorch, which looks like a fancy remote control. You fly in your rocket ship to the planet Bazoik, working your way from the landing zone through the various rooms. The graphics are not as crisp and clear as Doom or Duke Nukem. But hey, what do want for nothing? The opening clip is a rather strange, campy piece of animation that sets up the game scenario. You must clear each level to proceed. You can call up maps. You have to pick up supplies to survive. Nothing new as far as game play as far as I can see.
All Game Guide
Chex Quest is a good game, taking into consideration that it is intended for a young audience and that it came free in a box of cereal! This is a game for a child who enjoys first-person shooters but is not ready for the violence that occurs in most games of this genre.
