Kameo co-op images

Kameo co-op images

The Kameo DLC was released last week, adding XBL enabled co-op mode. Two packs of costume additions for the warriors was also released, and Microsoft released these images showing some co-op costumes. Too bad I sold the game after beating it in 8 hours, just like 80% of the buyers seemed to do. The second part of the game rocked, so this DLC should make the game popular when it goes down in price.

What is the update about? I thought Co-Op was included with the game already?

That was a big mistake, this game kicks ass i was doing all the side quests exploring all the way, i love this game it took me over 30h to beat it because i was playing very slow and enjoying the game. I like this game so much that i beat it again before a month, i love it, i need to buy this new costumes :P

Yes, I'm just being an ass, it's related to a Far Cry thread a while back. :)

Anyway, in regards to this I think the skins are really cool, but the game itself isn't really made more attractive because of it. Online co-op? It always felt like a tacked on feature (more or less admitted to be just that) and while doing stuff in co-op gets you achievements it's really not a lot of fun.

I bought the christmas pack, but realised pretty quickly how pointless going back tot he game once you've beat it and upgraded all the warriors is. The wacky extra christmas features in stuff like Sonic Adventure, Jet Set Radio and NiGHTS were worthwhile because those games were worth going back to and replaying in the first place.

There are those who are obsessed with Kameo however and all they do is compete in the leader boards. To me it sounds depressing, but hey to each his/her own. My friend is going crazy about the Co-op, but than realized none of his real friends still had the game..Including me.

Thing is, I'm usually quite the rankings/leaderboard nut when it comes to these lighthearted action type games. NiGHTS I spent ages with trying to perfect my Links. :)

But yeah, I see what you mean. I guess I'm mainly just disappointed in being disappointed. After playing the demo I had so high hopes for this game, and I just thought the entire thing felt like a huge tutorial preparing you for a game that never began. Extra content offer a glimmer of hope that I'm also ultimately disappointed in, which makes me disappointed by that fact. :D

Just an utter failure this game is for you, Huh? I enjoyed it while I could, but when DOA 4 came out I just gave up on it.
Commented on 2006-04-19 19:58:29
I thought this game was great! Sure you can whizz through the main story and finish it quickly but I found the combat / points system and the concept of the elements suprisingly well thought out. I certainly got lots of reply value getting 100% completion and going for the A ranks. Even played it yesterday.

If you sold it after beating Thorn you've missed out IMO

GOD THIS GAME LOOKS SO GOOD! Shame I sold all of my 360 games, otherwise this would be a blast.
Commented on 2006-04-19 20:03:33
(in reply to CubanMarine, damn, didn't reply fast enough :))


Haha, no, it wasn't that bad. I did finish it and everything. I never quite ENJOYED it though, I was just constantly reassured that that NEXT bit of the game would be enjoyable. It does a great job sort of making you feel like you're about to experience something really great, but you never quite do. Sort of like having foreplay. And foreplay. And more foreplay.

I still have it though and I'll prolly keep it, because it's just a tremendously well produced game and I'm quite inclined to say it's prolly still the best looking game on the 360. (I like colour, okay!?)

Also it's full of stuff that'd make great games on their own. Sort of like a smorgasbord of ideas that make you go "ooh, isn't that nice" and then you never see them again in the game. Ever. :)
Commented on 2006-04-19 20:09:43
I'm glad people sold it... cuz then I bought it from poeple cheap!

I'm with you skyform, I am still playing it after about 25 hrs and havent won yet... I'm sure I could have finished it in about 10 hrs or so, but running over trolls in the badlands riding atop a war horse or the prized velociraptor is just too much fun.

That robot skin looks amazing. I might give this a go.
I really liked Kameo, its got loads of character and a good atmosphere.
...and the gameplay is really fun.
Commented on 2006-04-19 22:38:10
Oh I played it only half, didn't buy it. But that co-op looks fun and I'll give it a second try, maybe.

Good lord, did you guys saw pic 8! I always tought the game rocked but... you know.... money, I don't have any.

I know, isn't that a Joanna Dark Costume?
Commented on 2006-04-19 23:40:04
hey SimonM7, it may not have as high a replay value as NiGHTS, but this game isn't all just foreplay ;) it could have had more "meat", but i thought it was a nice little adventure, and well worth the $50. maybe i like it more than most people because i haven't played many action\adventure games for a long while before playing this and was just really excited to get back into them.

anyway, skins\models looking good. may be worth another run through with those!

ps:
what christmas packs in sonic adventure and JSR???

Talk about breathing new life into a game. I might get this now, when I can go to a store and pick up a 360!
Commented on 2006-04-20 11:38:47 In reply to Denjinflash
Yeah, Denjin, I thought it was alright too. I'm just disappointed that to the very end the game explained how to do new things, and I was like "ooh, can't wait until I get to use this stuff" and then the game just ended. In a game like Metroid Prime, your new abilities add new layers to the game, here you sort of learn something, but you never get to use it.

I think that's very true, and I think it's true for a lot of previous Xbox owners aswell. I'm not gonna say that my opinion is the right one, but I think this game is so well recieved among Xbox fans because all they have to compare it to is like.. Blinx and Voodoo Vince.

I'm right there with you wanting these games and wanting to enjoy them though. Action adventure games like this could very well be my favourite genre if I had to pick one, even if I prefer more platform oriented gameplay in them. I like the design games like these shoot for, I like the colour, the imagination, the freedom in character design, story design, and the variation in level design - Snow, lava, forest, water, and so on, not just 'oh, no it's all just mexico city' - and the freedom in mechanics.

Sonic Adventure didn't have christmas packs per se, but come winter it'd have a christmas theme aswell as decorations for download. JSR also had Santa Claus roaming the streets and christmas decorations up.

Always I think of RARE games I remember great DK64 or PD but neither Kameo nor PDZ gave that feeling of a great game to me. In particular Kameo seemed to me like a weak attempt by RARE to get back to those wonderful times. I really expected something better, I don't think of the graphics, the story is thin, puzzles are too easy and I missed some variation (not concerning level design).

But nevertheless I wish I've bought Kameo instead of PDZ. As said before with that update I think I'll give it a second chance. At worst it's one more game in my collection.

Did this game get the recognition and fan support it deserved? was it a success? Or didn't people rush and buy it?

I bought the game..great game, beautiful graphics..just feels like it didn't get the recognition it deserved

    Tiz @amerakindesi: I think the planets are aligning quite nicely for Halo 6. They don't have to worry so much about multiplayer save for map design. Now they can focus efforts on the campaign. (2 Hours ago)
