IMG Reviews Summoner
12:50 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story
Of all the PC titles due to arrive on the Mac this Summer, Summoner is arguably one of the most anticipated -- merely for the fact that this game is the first of its kind on our platform. A full-3D RPG on an epic scale, this game began as a PS2 title but was further refined and tuned as it came to the Mac, with the addition of higher resolutions and network play. Now IMG has published an in-depth review of the game, an especially important resource for a game such as this which will have no demo. Here's an excerpt:
From the very beginning, Summoner draws the player in and never lets go. The first moments of the game are incredible, players find themselves in the middle of a burning village with nothing more than a short sword with which to defend against several advancing mercenaries. This experience is nothing short of complete immersion. Summoner uses an adjustable camera angle that's somewhere between a first-person and third-person experience (similar to a floating camera placed about 20 feet behind the person's back and above their shoulder). The overall effect is amazing. Players are able to zoom the camera in and out of the action as well as move it left or right. This innovative new camera angle gives you tons of new information as to what tactics to use in battle.For more details and screen shots, read the rest of the review. GraphSim is the publisher for this title, and the game itself should be on store shelves today.
