On: Xbox - OUT: January 2005
THE PITCH: Few doubt Rare's ability to produce a decent game. Getting the game on the shelves would appear to be a different matter for the UK coders, though. We've been waiting for Kameo and the fact that it missed its spring 2004 release date comes as no surprise, unfortunately. The game is an epic adventure of exploration and fighting, dressed up in big and bold graphics typical of Rare. Kameo's ability to morph into creatures in her bid to fight the evil that is the Dark Troll King is the game's main hook.
THE BUZZ: Kameo has been hurt by its delays and a game we were so looking forward to has become a 'believe-it-when-I-see-it' title. Still, when it finally does manage to whirl away in our Xbox, we expect it to be a big adventure full of fun, oozing that typical Rare polish. It will be better than Grabbed by the Ghoulies, we're sure.
