A platformer that looks nice, but aint that special
on 13 January 2002
You know the situation, i had some gift vouchers from xmas, and all the games that i wanted i'd already got so i decided to take a chance on a game i knew not alot about.
It was Evil Twin that caught my eye, it looked good and the storyline was original, it all came down to how well the game played...
Unfortunatley it was not the amazing find that i had hoped.
Graphiclly and sound wise i had no complaints, nothing ground breaking for the ps2 but they created a very dark and surreal feel which is definately what the makers (ubi soft) were trying to achieve.
It was the game play that let Evil Twin down tho, for a start it was a platformer and i have never been a huge fan of that genre, but also there are little niggles that will frustrate the player such as the changing camera angles that never let u see exactly where you want to, the complete lack of action in certain areas and the huge amount of dialogue between characters that becomes boring and annoying after a while.
To summerise, this game looks good, but plays less than average
