Review

Azurik: Rise of Perathia is easily the least impressive XBOX title that we‘ve reviewed so far. That statement isn’t entirely fair because the game has aspects to it that are quite impressive indeed, but the other three titles we’ve reviewed absolutely blew me away which is something that Azurik: Rise of Perathia failed to do.

The graphics once again were quite impressive, however when it comes down to it any title released on the XBOX is going to have terrific graphics because the console is so powerful. A game needs more then simply great graphics to standout these days. A storyline that makes you care like in Halo would have made this title a whole lot more impressive. The gameplay is fine its just that the game as a whole doesn’t have the originality that I have come to expect out of an XBOX title. It is basically an N64 or Dreamcast game with great graphics. That just doesn’t do it for me.

The game does do a great job of easing you into the gameplay with a great tutorial. Sad to say once your are further into the game its starts to get boring because there is very little life to the game. Its worth renting but I personally would not go out and buy this game.
