Beowulf X360 Play Beowulf, an epic hero tormented by desire for power and glory. A slayer and a king -- torn between the nobility and brutality within him. You are Beowulf, legendary Norse warrior with the strength of 30 men.

But evil persists, and you succumb to its lure of even greater fame, quietly maneuvering to claim the Danish throne. As King, you must face the consequences of ambition, even as war descends on the realm.

I really wanted to like Beowulf, and I knew going into it that is would be a cheap God of War clone, and I'm fine with that. God of War is a fun game, and even though Beowulf is ripping it off, who cares, just as long as this game is fun too. And it is, most of the time. Beowulf is a mindless Hack N' Slash game that's ultra bloody and violent, how can you go wrong there? They do throw in two interesting ideas with the Carnal meter and Heroic meter. When you go Carnal, your health depletes, but you can just rip enemies to shreds, unfortunately, you can also kill your own soldiers while in this mode. In Heroic mode, you boost the attack and defense of yourself and your army. So yeah, really no need for Carnal mode. There are some cons to this game, the graphics are lacking, which is not a big deal for me, the controls can be off at times and a bit unresponsive, and there are some areas of the game which are just downright frustrating. Believe me, I let the expletives fly! But I picked the game up at Gamestop for $8 and I don't regret it, it's good fun, and just as long as you're not expecting brilliance, you'll probably enjoy it. Good, but not at all great.

Honestly this game was super disappointing to me. It felt monotonous after about 15 minutes. It doesn't bring much more to the table after that. I only kept playing the game for the achievements, sadly.

Visual:
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.
3/5 stars.

Game Play:
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.
1/5 Stars.

Audio:
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.

The epic poem of Beowulf is once again recreated, but this time in the form of a video game for the Xbox 360. Beowulf has a hack n'slash gameplay similar to the Dynasty Warrior series. You lead a small group of Thane soldiers, while fighting creatures in the kingdom of, Herot. The game follows the movie it is based on somewhat loosely. There are creatures you kill and places to explore not seen in the movie. Fighting new creatures and going to new places in not all it is cracked up to be.

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.

First of all, for $20 this game is a great deal. It is a lot of fun and the graphics and gameplay are pretty well put together. I would reccomend it for any gamer that likes the action/adventure genre. It doesn't have the in-depth world of Oblivion or another RPG, but is definatly a lot of fun to play.

I don't understand why there aren't more reviews of this game. It's strange how the cost went from $60 to $20 recently. I loved the movie, it was extremely entertaining. I got this game for $20 and I've gotta tell you, It's a STEAL. The gameplay, graphics, music, and story are all great. I recommend that everyone treat themselves with this one.
