When playing CTHD you’ll get some pretty cool fighting scenes mixed with par graphics and par sound effects. A good rental if you’re a fan of the movie or you’re interested in what the movie has to offer. In the end, sadly, it doesn’t really make to many sparks in your head go WOW.
As the buzz from the larger than life movie "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" begins to slowly fade, Ubisoft has taken a risk to revitalize the genre, with a unique game of the same name. Centered around the amazing stunts of the movie, "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" has been created to try and capture the hard-to-describe feel that stunned people in theatres.
Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon was a movie that seemed to come out of nowhere and knocked your socks off. The movie had an inspiring story, great soundtrack, and awesome martial arts action! Three years later, Ubisoft creates a game based off the movie, and now it has arrived but was it really worth the wait? Read on to find out!
As seasoned gamers we have all come to learn that games based on movie licenses rarely (if ever) work. A big reason for this continuing failure is the fact the most games are rushed out the door to ride the wave of whatever momentum the movie might still be generating. Sometimes the delay is substantial enough that the game might tie into the DVD home release of a film. But as games like Enter the Matrix and T3: Rise of the Machines have recently proven, even the best movie franchise cannot guaranteed a great game, no matter how much time you spend on it.
In ancient China it was believed that there is a natural balance to all things. Ultimately harmony prevails and any evil is countered in some way by good. The game and movie seem to support this ideology. Yin is the movie: Nearly flawless in its beauty, and its depths profound. Yang is the video game: Fatally flawed, ugly, and flat as a two-dimensional pancake.
The gameplay doesn't do anything a thousand other identical games haven't done before, and the frustratingly repetitive level and mission designs further solidify Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon as a mediocre effort, at best. When Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon was released in the US in 2000, the film could not have been called anything other than an unmitigated success.
Back in the glorious year of 2000, the dot-com boom was as big as it could get, the Xbox was yet to come out and moviegoers were mesmerized by the Asian stylings of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Three years later the boom has long since popped, the Xbox is on the scene and that fantastic cinematic experience has finally landed on your gaming system. I wish I could say it was worth the wait. That would be assuming that anyone was actually waiting and the game was even remotely good.
Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon är ett hemskt licensspel. Inte för att spelet egentligen är sämre än vilket actionfilmspel som helst, utan för att det fäller en skugga över en fantastisk film. Den här gången tar jag det personligt.
Quel idiot j’ai été de penser que l’adaptation de Tigre & Dragon aurait pu jouir d’une quelconque qualité. Ce soft est le représentant type de l’adaptation bâclée ne profitant pas une seule seconde du matériau de base. Le jeu de Genki manque d’envergure (un comble vu le film de Ang Lee), possède des graphismes PSone’s style, un gameplay d’un autre âge, une difficulté mal dosée et n’a aucune chance d’arriver dans votre Xbox, surtout si vous avez adoré le film. Essayez le jeu et vous comprendrez ce que je veux dire. A jeter de toute urgence dans un abîme sans fond.
