Kameo: Elements of Power (Xbox 360)

 

The next generation of gaming is off to a very good start. As the first Xbox 360 game to be released, Kameo: Elements of Power turns out to be a fitting showcase for Microsoft's powerful new console. For that matter, the game's really no worse for wear...

You think you're too manly to play a game as a tiny little elf girl? Think again, macho man!

Now this is presentation, fellas. Watch and learn. ; Bludgeons you with things to do, see, and try

Swapping characters = swapping controls

Ten elemental warriors and still only a 14-inch waist? TrimSpa, baby.

Few names in the gaming industry are as revered as Rare Entertainment, and justly so. Having produced more classic titles than nearly any other development team in history, Rare has most certainly earned their title. With hits like Goldeneye 007,...

If you're a fan of action adventure titles such as the Legend of Zelda series, Kameo's a sure bet if you're looking for a good time in an original fantasy gameworld. With graphics that will always look amazing regardless of how much time has passed and...

You get to play as a pile of rocks? Isn't that darling

Unbelievable visuals ; Kooky elements ; Trolls. Lots of trolls

Only 10 hours of game ; You'll barely use some powers ; Only one way past most obstacles

Generally, when a game looks this good, we get a little suspicious. There’s usually some sort of nasty problem lurking beneath the shiny surface: the game’s too short, the action gets a little herky-jerky during crucial fights or it’s just plain no...

With the exception of one boss battle in the game and some camera issues Kameo is one of the better launch titles for the 360 and one of the few family friendly titles available for the platform. The game is at least a must-rent for all gamers and...

When Microsoft picked up the much heralded British developer Rare in the fall of 2002, many saw the move as a surefire acquisition that instantly added credibility to Microsoft as a legitimate player in the console market. With a library that included...

Developer Rare has become somewhat of a "golden child" in the industry. Despite extremely long development times, they have a track record of releasing final products that, for the most part, shine above the rest. Goldeneye for the N64 set the...

All in all, Kameo is a great start for the platforming genre on the next-gen systems. There really is nothing within the game that is pushing boundaries or knocking the gaming world on its ear with innovation, but what is there is familiar, fun, and...

Kameo: Elements of Power Review

 

Kameo is a beautiful action adventure first for the Xbox 360 worth a look.

In the Xbox 360 launch lineup, Kameo: Elements of Power stands somewhat alone as the first real action/adventure game for the system. While it may have enough flaws to deny it best game status in the genre, or even really an innovative game that takes...

Expectations were hovering somewhere high in the stratosphere when Microsoft acquired Rare several years ago, but even many of the Scottish developer's most ardent fans were underwhelmed by their first two outings on the Xbox: the fine but forgettable...

Audio:Kameo's Dolby Digital 5.1 audio is nearly as impressive as the game's visuals. The orchestral score and haunting choir would be a seamless fit in a big-budget Hollywood epic, and although I didn't find the story engaging enough to care to listen...

Product Specifications

As blood ties are betrayed and ancient rituals shattered, the Troll King Thorn is unleashed into Kameo's world once more, fully intent on completing the destruction of the Elfin Empire with his barbarous Troll army. The only hope for salvation lies with young Elf Kameo and her gifts of control over the legendary Elemental Warriors, though her own family's involvement in Thorn's captivity (and, she will come to discover, his release) also marks her out as one of the Troll King's critical targets... If the colossal war which rages in her kingdom is to end before the Trolls leave nothing but ash and bones in their wake, Kameo knows that she must journey towards a decisive confrontation with Thorn at the very heart of his own territory. But her enemy is not only the most ruthless war leader in history, he is also sly, experienced, utterly single-minded and capable of any cruelty or deceit if it will serve his ends. In short, the scales are tipped heavily in Thorn's favor. Although time is not on her side, Kameo knows that to stand any real chance of saving her people from extinction, she must do everything possible to even the odds. Firstly, she must cancel any leverage Thorn may have by freeing her trapped Ancestors from their prisons in the darkest corners of the world. And secondly, the age-old spirits of the Elemental Warriors - powerful entities that maintain the balance of nature - must be tracked down and brought to bear in the name of Kameo's desperate cause. This is the core of Kameo's power, and her greatest weapon in this struggle. From her mother she has inherited the Element of Power, and with it the ability to actually morph into the Warriors' physical forms. By doing so she integrates their full range of attacks and defenses into her own arsenal. From Chilla the ice-cold yeti to Ash the blistering dragon, Pummel Weed the pugilistic plant to Major Ruin the giant armadillo, each of these followers must be found and their powers used to boost Kameo's own. However, simply acquiring a Warrior is not enough. An intimate familiarity with their combat potential, environmental advantages, elemental properties and even their best position in a devastating multi-phase combo will be required if Kameo is to have even the slimmest chance of success. Her enemy is well-prepared, the road to his castle strewn with dark beasts and lethal hazards, and there is far more at stake here than Kameo's own life.
