My taste has a mind of its own, how else could one explain the preferences I have for certain games which no one else likes better than me? You would probably need at least a quantum computer to find a pattern in my logic within this century which means that a cluster of super computers nowadays wouldn’t succeed in exploring the web before the next meteorite hits the earth's surface. However, this time I could have an explanation for why it is I liked to review this third person action game for kids: because I 0wn while playing such an easy game. Isn’t that great? Well, it was until I had played a few hours after which I began to get bored.
Jackie Chan Adventures is a solid and fun, if not very challenging offering that will appeal to children and casual gamers rather than the seasoned players of adventure games amongst you. The basic cel-shaded visuals and smooth animation gives it a unique style and the story is pretty entertaining along the way. Overall, a worthy adventure title, albeit aimed more towards young fans of the TV cartoon series.
Playing as the kung fu guru, your time is split between classic platform hopping and puzzling solving, with surprisingly little combat (for such a famous martial arts master), still what there is of it, is smooth and responsive. The level objectives, while varied and challenging are sadly a linear affair, inevitably leading you through the game by a leash. Though, with the recovery of each Talsiman, new powers are progressively unlocked such as increased strength, speed, jumping, and astral travel. You can expect a side serving of mini games too, such as fishing, cards, and even three EyeToy activities to get you up off your...couch.
Le mélange de plusieurs styles de jeux aurait pu être payant, mais il manque l'étincelle qui aurait pu embraser le tout. En clair, Jackie Chan Adventures manque de rythme et cela se ressent tout au long de la progression. Dommage aussi qu'il faille se taper une maniabilité bien souvent crispante.
