Anubis II review

A gold-plated turd steaming-fresh off the assembly line

For

  • Solving mystery of the missing prequel
  • Pretty gold colors... durr...
  • Familiarity breeds contempt
  • not love

Against

  • Nagging enigma of the missing prequel
  • The suck-tastic 'gameplay'
  • Clone-itis

Nov 26, 2007

The third installment of Data Design's cheapo reskinnable platform game has an Egyptian theme and sounds like some kind of ointment for piles. Strangely, there was no Anubis 1. Okay...

It does look a little bit nicer thanNinjabread ManandRock 'N' Roll Adventures but that's due to the shiny gold colours rather than any superior design, and it suffers from the same shoddy controls as its partners in crime.

All three are small enough to keep running for a while without having the disc in the drive, and would have been better value bundled together or as cheaper WiiWare downloads.
