Game Overview

People say:


Crusader is a fun game but it's just not solid. Solid in the sense that there are some loose ends from a production standpoint that could've been tweaked. For example, the character animation is all too often jerky and awkward-when your character jumps it looks as if he's falling like a feather. The control is extremely complicated, maybe even too complicated. Granted all of the different buttons allow your character to do all sorts of neat actions, but it's too much. The graphics are pretty sharp and the sounds work well but I can't get over the animation and control problems. Last, I like the levels and how they are designed.


Crusader definitely has a few things going for it. Too bad it has more going against it. This shooter/action game was really hyped when it was out on the PC. Something went horribly wrong in the translation, and what we have now is an extremely poor-quality title. The animation Is atrocious. Your character looks ridiculous when he's moving around. The control is just as bad. You might curse the game in frustration as you try to steer your guy in the right direction. The only factor saving this game is that it isn't a mindless shooter. You have to use cunning and manage your equipment well to win this game.


It's easy to dismiss Crusader as being a bad game if you only play it for a few minutes. The graphics are so-so (although everything blows up real nice), the animation is choppy and the missions seem mostly of the repetitive, blow-stuff-up variety. But this PC port has depth. Each of the 15 missions is ultra-long and packs plenty of objectives. Fortunately, you can save your game at any time (you only get one life, so save often!). It's the control that really hurts this game. The joypad is unresponsive, and simple tasks such as sidestepping and rolling are a chore, as well as sillylooking. You can't even shoot while sidestepping!


Did I ever explain my pet peeves? No? The biggest mistake a game developer an make is creating a sequel with great still graphics and horrible control. Luckily, enough unique elements are in this game to keep your interest longer than a typical shooter The animation of your main character is incredibly choppy, and that hurts. It's like the company didn't plan the game better and rushed it through the red tape. Crusader's cinemas begin to sound and look all the same after seeing the first two. I found it really hard to see some small objects beause of the tiny sizes. Moving onto platforms was nearly impossible.
