Summary

Two Kung Fu Movies For The Price Of Three!

The Good

In Voodoo Vince you play as Vince a voodoo doll you must rescue his master Madam Charmaine who has been kidnapped by Kosmo the Inscrutable and his henchmen Jeb and Fingers that shouldn’t be too hard since these guys are morons and Kosmo is pretentious and also stupid throughout the game you’ll run into many interesting characters like surly gas pumps, piggy banks of doom, a psychotic doll, Professor Ethel, and a New Orleans chef.

In the game you fight many enemies like Gingerbread men, Giant Gators and crawfish you kill them the only way a voodoo doll knows how using voodoo powers ranging from drive-bys, William tell arrows, shark attack, and running with scissors you can also punch or spin attack because voodoo powers are best reserved for bosses and hordes or enemies cause you have limited times you can use it as the game goes on you can increase your life bar, and voodoo power the bosses range from Fossilized dinosaurs, tornadoes, and psycho dolls.

This game is very humorous with many jokes including the humorous things the animals say in the level where you have to make sausages out of ground up animals for some jambalaya and most bosses have a special way to defeat them.

The music and sound effects work extremely well with a very New Orleans style of music and quality voice acting and good graphics.

The Bad

This game does have some annoying platforming and some of the bosses can be like the statue and the two headed laser beam eyed lizard.

The Bottom Line

This game is a great Xbox platformer and a largely overlooked game so much so the company that made this Beep Industries is now under this being the only game under their belt you can play this game to not pass up the opportunity.
