Voltron: Defender Of The Universe Review (Xbox 360)

 

With a brand new TV show, a movie in (perpetual) development and an ongoing comic series, 80s super robot series Voltron is a franchise that has had a surprising lack of a video game presence, with only a mobile game from two years ago putting the...

However, despite these attempts to move beyond the usual dual stick shooter, Voltron’s gameplay remains a bit too traditional throughout. While each of the five Voltron Lions available have their own set of stats for Armor Piercing, Short Range,...

How can you mess up giant lion robots?

Captures old-school animé vibe

Repetitive design all around; Doesn't fully capitalize on its license; Mechanics are imprecise and clunky

Voltron: Defender Of The Universe

 

I am old enough to remember a television landscape before Voltron, before Japanese cartoons came to prominence first in syndication (“Star Blazers”) then as standard fare (“Pokemon”). While there have been singular successes, such as “Speed Racer”, it...

Voltron action ; True to the original series

Can't actually control Voltron ; Short ; Limited attacks and objectives

For fans of old arcade style action games or Voltron, this isn’t a bad game to play. Mostly this plays on nostalgia, and without the license and fanservice trappings, it wouldn’t be nearly as enjoyable. At three levels with four stages each, the game...

From days of long ago… That's how it all began in 1984 and it's exactly how Voltron: Defender of the Universe from Behavior Interactive and THQ begins. While Voltron has had a few iterations, including...

Lions control well ; Tons of fan service ; Voltron battles handled smartly

No upgrades/progression ; Lions too similar ; Repetitive objectives

From days of long ago… That’s how it all began in 1984 and it’s exactly how Voltron: Defender of the Universe from Behavior Interactive and THQ begins. While Voltron has had a few iterations, including the direct sequel series Voltron Force currently...

What should be a joyful revival is dragged down by low-res textures, repetitive missions, punchless attacks, and an overall lack of excitement.

Original clips lend a nostalgic flavor

Ugly, low-res textures ; Punchless effects makes the action a bore ; Lack of enemy variety makes the missions repetitive ; Climactic battles reduced to disappointing quick-time events ; No reason to come back after completing the four-hour campaign

Voltron: Defender of the Universe Review

 

Just the second Voltron videogame ever made has arrived as a downloadable shoot-'em-up. Can these five space cats scratch your nostalgic itch?

Voltron: Defender of the Universe may invoke some feelings of nostalgia for those of us who grew up in the Eighties, but that’s due solely to the cartoon clips that bookend each level – which you can probably watch for free on YouTube. The gameplay...

Twisting your memories against you, here's Voltron: Defender of the Universe.

So, after you've transformed, you get to go full-on robot all over some Robeast's face, right? Not as such, no. Voltron is a game designed with multiplayer in mind and, since there can only be one Voltron, the battles instead play like a light RPG,...

Voltron: Defending the Universe via boring quicktime events and dull gameplay we've seen a thousand times..

If you want a Voltron game - or a Voltron themed twin-stick shooter - desperately enough, this is all there is on offer. If you're a fan of the series and want a game that delivers, go watch the show while you wait for a different Voltron game - one...

Megathrusters...ENGAGE!

 

Well, the fans have been asking for it for many years now, and as of last week, it finally came to fruition. A video game adaption of the classic robot-battling, universe-defending franchise, Voltron (no, I don't count last year's now-MIA iPhone game)....

Voltron! Finally ; Scenes from the original show is a fabulous touch

By-the-numbers, barebones SHMUP ; Voltron control is reduced to QTE? Really

Voltron: Defender of the universe isn’t terrible. But it is disappointing. As a shooter, it’s as thin as can be, and as an adaption of one of the most loved animated properties of the 1980’s, it’s a letdown. The nostalgic scenes from the show are nice,...

Prettiest platformer of the year?

Good camera, tight controls, unique pounce attack, up to five players simultaneously online

Too short, no extra modes, Voltron sequences are underwhelming

Fun, but needs improvement.
