STAFF REVIEW of Loons: The Fight For Fame (Xbox)


Sunday, October 6, 2002.

Loons: The Fight For Fame Box art Romp through 15 movie sets as your favorite LOON, unlocking mini-games and new levels. All of this to be the star of director Yosimiti Sam's latest epic. May entertain younger gamers, but not for long. This game lacks any replay value at all. I was hoping this "Platform" would have been a little better than it was.


This is a platform game, with some wonderful "gizmos" and the use of bonus prat falls a la' Looney Toons, such as falling anvils,and cows. Zapping your competition into womens clothing, and the ever popular "Thunder Cloud" striking. Unfortunatly the game is set on movie sets. Each level is a new set, but unlike real movie sets these are the size of your particular TV screen and not much more. Levels are small and lose any initial "WOW" factor in minutes. The charecters seem to be tripping over each other throughout the game. The mini-games are not really that clever at all, seem to be put in each level to expand a little on the lack of "area" you actually have. Multi-player functions are available but don't really help any. I will say that the prmiss of the game is very interesting and entertaining, too bad the developers seemed to take the quick route on this one.


This game gains some respect visually, i'm not sure of the process used but it's great. The in game graphics are very close to viewing a "real" cartoon as i have ever seen. Charecters have that drawn cartoon feel and display very little of the usuall "blockyness" that cartoon games usually have. The same goes for the envronments, very true to the cartoon look and feel. Job well done on the "Cartoon look" of this game.


All of your favorite voices, and sounds are present in this title. Charecter voices are well done, since the charecters have such recognizable voices i'm glad they stayed with accurate representations. All of those wonderfull Loony Toon sounds are also recreated accuratlly. Music, pops, pings, lightning, all straight from the actual cartoons.


Suggestions:
If you could figure out a better way for this game to play and let everything else stand as is it would be a great platform for any system.
Once again the gamer creedo plays through, it aint nothin' without good gameplay.


Overall: 7.0 / 10
