Though the jumping is still a little stiff, Hardboiled has enough improvements over its predecessor to make it a worthwhile purchase for any PS3 gamer. The game is on the short side, but you can go back through the levels to find cleverly hidden tokens. Some light RPG elements and more varied enemies/challenges would have improved the experience, but as the first console game in what will hopefully become a Rocketbirds franchise, Hardboiled is an eggcellen…must resist terrible pun…a commendable game.
Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken admittedly has a few problems holding it back from reaching its full potential. The enemy AI can seem fairly stupid at times and the difficulty is generally too easy – apart from when it is too difficult, which is usually for the wrong reasons. Despite all of this, it is still a game I would recommend. The gunplay is satisfying and death only results in a minor setback to the most recent checkpoint, making this a “just-one-more-go” type of experience. In other words, addictive. Furthermore, the beautiful graphics and catchy soundtrack by New World Revolution make this one of the most polished PSN titles available to date. At only £7.19, 2D platformer fans would have to be pretty ‘cheep’ – or total birdbrains – to pass on this unusual little gem!
Rocketbirds isn’t a reinvention of anything you might hold dear in the gaming world, but it’s a well-presented little barrel of laughs which, if nothing else, will allow you to take out your real-world frustrations on an anthropomorphic species. Look closely enough at the game’s snazzy sheen of paint and you’ll start too see the cracks inflicted by its occasionally lacklustre enemy AI, confusing level design and generally repetitive gameplay, but take it for what it is, a charming and satisfying piece of interactive fun, and you’ll probably get a few hours of juvenile capering out of it.
Cette version PS3 de Rocketbirds est à la hauteur de l'original sorti il y a près de deux ans sur PC. Si le gameplay du soft reprend surtout des idées déjà vues dans des titres comme Flashback ou Oddworld : L'Odyssée d'Abe, la recette fonctionne d'autant mieux que le jeu profite d'une ambiance graphique et sonore très attractive. Le mode coopératif qui fait ici son apparition demeure certes perfectible, mais il vous réserve tout de même quelques parties bien sympathiques.
Rocketbirds has some nice humour, great graphics and a classy soundtrack, but aside from the fun of the jetpacks, the game is too repetitive and lacking challenge in the right places.
In fairness, this might be too harsh a criticism for what’s essentially a simple game. But it made me upset. I mean, this is part of what we’re being delivered as a consumer base. This game is clearly designed to capitalize on a certain subset. It seems to be blatant pandering, which is a dangerous trend that I hope doesn’t get too much of a foothold. I understand the business side of things, I really do. However, if that aspect completely takes over, we’re in for a decidedly nasty ride, full of tacked on fart jokes.
