Drakan: The Ancients' Gates review

Reviewed July 27, 2002

James Gordon says: "Sony snuck up on everyone and released this part action, part adventure, part RPG hybrid. Few people were expecting it, and few really cared when it actually came out. After all, who wants a game that looks like Tomb Raider but plays more like a cross N64's Zelda games and Blizzard's Diablo? Luckily, Sony "

Drakan: The Ancients' Gates review

Reviewed July 08, 2009

Rob Hamilton says: "As for Snotmaw, well, I have to admit watching and hearing an audience chanting "SNOTMAW! SNOTMAW! SNOTMAW!" made me feel like a pro wrestling jobber about to get pasted by "Stone Cold" Steve Austin in a match held deep in the heart of Texas......but he was just a typical Wartok who hit harder and took a lot more damage. All I had to do was slash, slash, roll backwards, wash, rinse, repeat to kill him with ease. Oh, and he somehow got stuck trying to move around the Kong's corpse, which gave me a good number of uncontested attacks while the big dummy flailed about helplessly. Kind of anticlimactic, if you ask me."
