Another 24: Game Review

March 20th, 2006

I’ve found another quite good review of the 24: Game, which has been available in the U.S. for a fortnight or so, and in the U.K. since friday. Eventually I’ll put up a dedictaed section, but until then…

“… The game takes the same premise [as the show]; 24 hours worth of twist filled storyline, more than just akin to the show, and gives you the chance to be hero Jack Bauer.

…, each hour is broken up into a couple/few short missions that vary from standard hiding and shooting action to strange hacking mini-games. … The lion’s share of the game is the shooting side of things which is overall a pretty decent stab at an action game, and while the rest fits in beautifully with the story, there is a certain amount of unrest over just how useful they are to the game …

… The plot stays true to the tone of the TV show, … it seems like the entire scenario is ramped up a little higher … However you feel about the game play, the cinematics keep you playing, to expand on the universe of the show …

… The audio of the game is presented wonderfully with some excellent voice acting… Music fits in both style and pace, …, and the numerous phone calls throughout each mission just serve to enhance the cinematic and story based nature of the game …

… The truth is, I enjoyed most of the game section of 24. A map in the lower right corner of the screen makes tracking enemies and showing off Bauer’s skills very intuitive and the controls reflect that well …”
