The visuals in the game aren't bad, in some places looking very good -- conversely in others looking very bad. The locations you fight in are varied and each have their own look. Models are decently detailed while textures seem to run on a decent TV.
This is where the game really falls apart. The game play is simple button mashing with a few block, roll, etc. buttons added for no reason. You can easily take on the hardest difficulty without ever blocking. Enemies are dumb and always do about the same thing no matter the play through so learning their patterns is simple and required. The player will have a lot of quick-timers evens through the game to open doors, command troops (which die always -- don't expect to keep them around), etc. While there is a level of persistence which you can buy upgrades for your hero in both the "good" and "evil" trees of skills, there's only a few of them that actually matter. The game even has spears strewn around the game areas that will instagib just about anything, which constantly respawn -- so just throw throw throw. The redeeming fact is this game is a REALLY easy 1000 gamer score on the 360, making the journey just worth it enough to finish.
The games music is decent enough and a large number of scores come from the movie this game is based on. While sound effects and decent at most and monsters mostly sound like 12 year-olds gargling into a microphone. The game does have 5.Read more ›
The biggest misgiving about Beowulf is its shoddy controls and bad camera system which fights against you through out the game. In certain levels Beowulf controls fine but other times he moves sluggishly and the button pressing on your controller are not always responsive; just adding to the frustration. As you play Beowulf, the "mighty" monster slayer, you will punch, throw, stab and smash enemies either with your barehands or with shields and swords. Weapons are easy to find as you venture through the levels. Other times you can steal your enemy's weapon by pressing a button sequence on your controller.
And this brings me to another giant flaw within the game, the constant button mashing is tiresome and boring. Your soldiers help you fight off some of the enemies but they expect you to do most of the work. With button delay responses and constant pounding, your hands will ache really fast. There are also several sequences that force you to use the button rythm match game (press x, then y, then a etc...). If you are not good at those rythm type games, you will have a very tough time in this one. You will die a lot and realise that Beowulf is not mighty at all, but more of a wimp.Read more ›

This is a great buy for tweny dollars, but not more than that. The game is a bit ridiculous, like most movie games and makes little sense at various moments throughout the story. Read morePublished on May 19, 2008 by Jason Hasty
