Kameo – Completed

There was actually a learning curve when it came to this game. All of your actions are done with the shoulder buttons on the controller and to switch between elements were the normal buttons. I often found myself switching elements rather then executing an attack, it got annoying pretty quickly.

The game centers around a fairy type culture and the elemental creatures they control. When enabled you essentially turn into that elements creature and have full use of there power. As you go through the game you find exactly what you need to move on (imagine that). The kingdom you live in was invaded by a evil troll who killed your father and kidnapped your family. At this point it’s a basic plat former that takes you through stages in order to recover the elements and defeat the troll.

Game for me was 6 out of 10. It was fun and colorful, yet could be frustrating at time trying to figure out which element to use next and in what situations. That concept coupled with the odd controls did not leave me with the best impression.
