Product Description

Product Description

Seek out danger to keep your enemies at bay and use your voodoo powers to inflict pain on monsters and villains.

From the Manufacturer

Voodoo Vince is an outrageous venture—from the streets of New Orleans to the depths of a Louisiana bayou—where players explore and fight as a tattered-but-tough voodoo doll on a quest to find the whereabouts of his keeper, Madam Charmaine.

In true voodoo style, Vince encounters and defeats quirky monsters and villains ... by kicking his own butt! By racing under a falling safe, jumping into a high-speed blender, or leaping under falling rubble, Vince is sure to defeat his enemies—all while managing to escape completely unscathed.

Features

  • Voodoo combat action: Players can employ more than 30 voodoo attacks that do outrageous things to Vince, but it's the monsters who end up hurting! Unlike in other games, players must actually USE dangers and hazards, instead of running from them. Falling safes, prickly pushpins, and bolts of lightning bring a whole new meaning to the phrase "no pain, no gain."
  • Magical voodoo world: Thrust into the depths of a twisted and dangerous world, Vince must trek through 30 detailed levels, including crawfish-laden swamps, a graveyard filled with imps and lost zombies, a fantastic French Quarter, and a network of boggy sewers.
  • Vehicles and minigames: As the game unfolds, Vince must master and pilot a number of vehicles, including a fanboat, a submarine, an airplane—and even a rat gives him a lift at one point. Vince must master one mind-bending minigame after another to complete his quest.
  • Dynamic cast of characters: No adventure would be complete without its host of surly characters. Offbeat creatures with all the charm of New Orleans are around every corner. Vince encounters everything from Ginger Dead Men (who are not exactly sugar-coated) to a pair of intoxicated gas pumps that offer up a fiery challenge.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Finally -- Xbox gets a worthy platformer September 25, 2003
    By A Customer
    I have actually played the complete version of Voodoo Vince. I must say, this is a breath of fresh air on the shooter-heavy Xbox. This game has a high degreee of polish and personality from beginning to end. The gameplay, level design, puzzles, mood and even the music all work extremely well.
    First, the character controls. Vince is really responsive and has almost no "laggy-ness." He turns, moves and jumps very easily. His basic moves are standard platformer fare: He runs, jumps, double-jumps, punches, spins and head butts his way through the game.
    Vince himself is a hoot. The game is filled with sarcastic comments which make fun of other characters, Vince and the platformer genre. I thought the little animations Vince does when he gets bored were especially well done. His voice is sort of odd, sounding like that guy from the Man Show, but after a while it kind of grew on me.
    Probably the biggest stand-out for me were the voodoo powers themselves. Since Vince is a voodoo doll, it okay to do bad things to him. Vince can get destroyed in all sorts of strange and funny ways. Some of these are "powers" which are basically highly animated smart bombs. Some are related to puzzles and boss battles, where finding a harmful, dangerous thing and turning it against Vince is how you beat the monsters. These are both clever and funny.
    The levels are beautiful, and well designed. The platforming could get more tricky than I've seen for a while, but that's okay. Plunging into an unexpected pit had me a bit frustrated at times, but the game has a great auto-save feature which means you don't have to play very much over again if Vince dies.
    There are lots of cool mini-games to be found in Voodoo Vince. At times, he gets to fly an airplane, drive a fanboat or jump around on a giant spring.

    I didn't pick this game up until it dropped to $20, mainly because I had heard mixed reviews about it. After playing it, I'm beginning to think that many reviewers are just jaded from the surplus of platformers available on the market. The game is beautiful and easy to learn. Voodoo Vince is a very cute mascot with just enough personality to crack up even the most serious of players.
    Story
    The story is pretty entertaining. You are a voodoo doll named Vince. You are the "third best" doll of a woman by the name of Madame Charmaine, who has been kidnapped by Kosmo the Inscrutable. During the crime, Vince has zombie dust sprinkled on him, bringing him to life and allowing him to receive telepathic messages from Mme. Charmaine.
    Characters
    Vince is a very likable character, with his tongue in cheek disdain for all things platforming (e.g. "Another musical gate puzzle...hooray"). I can't decide if he has very low or very high self-esteem, because his character seems to waffle between the two. In any case, he is very entertaining. Mme. Charmaine's visual role is small after her abduction, but her voice haunts you throughout the game (think Cleo from the Psychic Friends network). The main "baddy", Kosmo, reminds me of Bert from Sesame Street. He is supposed to be quite comical, but I find it hard to believe that a Muppet could pull off such a heist!
    Gameplay
    The gameplay is standard 3D platforming at its best -- jump around and float/hover to drop more slowly and find secret areas. Your special attacks are one of the more novel I have seen. To harm a large number of enemies around you, you invoke a random special attack which involves...hurting yourself!

    So what do you get when you add your typical platform game, a third-rate voodoo doll, and a fun Louisiana Cajun storyline? Voodoo Vince! As much as I've been bored by many of the platform titles that have come out over the past few years (and the millions of sequels issued after them), Voodoo Vince was a welcome change of pace. You play an animated voodoo doll that is out to rescue his owner, Madame Charmaine, who is captured by Kosmo the Inscrutable (think Vizzini the Sicilian from Princess Bride - add a Fez and you're getting close).
    The game pokes fun of other platform titles (pardon the pun), as much as it plays like one. It has the genre's obligatory boss battles, puzzles, and hidden items, but Vince always has something witty to say about each new challenge that will keep you in stitches. It steals some ideas from a few other platform games, such as target-based grappling ala Rayman and a spin attack that is reminiscent of Crash Bandicoot, but those aren't bad platform~ games to take from. The last thing that still makes me giggle is Vince's DIE! How can you not like a game in which you are supposed to set yourself on fire?
    This game stands apart from other platform titles for its atmosphere, especially the music. I rarely am able to keep the sound up on a title for an excessively long amount of time, however, with this title the music and background effects are superb. I wish more titles had the musical direction that Voodoo Vince has, but then again not many are from the bayou! The imagery of the game is vivid and colorful, and it is the prettiest platform title for the Xbox since Oddworld.
    As far as knocks on the game, I think the biggest one I have, which is one that I have for all games of this genre, is this: the camera angle will kill you for a while.
