If you haven't picked up Kameo yet but you enjoy games that are a complete blast to play, you are sorely missing out. The game isn't marketed very well; it looks kiddish and cute. And, to an extent, it is "cute." But if you can shrug off the fact that you are playing a female fairy, you will find this game to be an utter blast for the whole family.
Kameo is a graphical powerhouse for Xbox 360. It looks stunning. There are times when I started playing and would just stare at the environment in wonder. The opening level is absolutely stunning. Hundreds of red dragons arc through the sky, trolls are climbing up huge castle parapets, fire explodes everywhere, and here you are climbing up a frozen ledge. This level teaches you the basics of changing into your forms. And this is what the game is all about. There are 10 elemental warriors you can morph into. In fact, you will hardly ever play as "Kameo" but you spend most of your time as the other huge creatures you can transform into with the push of a button.
This transforming takes up the majority of the gameplay. There are puzzles and enemies that will require one or more of your warriors to solve/beat. As an example, in the first level you have access to an armadillo-type creature that can roll and a yeti-type creature that can climb surfaces. One puzzle involved turning into the armadillo, speeding up off a ramp, transforming to the yeti in mid-air and then climbing up a wall with him. That is a rather simple puzzle but is a good example of the type of gameplay found within.
Enemies will sometimes require a specific character(s) to beat as well. An early instance of this are trolls who have shield in front of them. You can use Rubble's lob ability to toss a rock behind the enemy and as the rock rolls back to you, it will hit the enemy from behind and allow you to pummel him.
I've already touched on the graphics, but I want to again reiterate that they are terrific. They easily show what the 360 can do, sometimes with 100s of trolls, elves, dragons and "tanks" on the screen at one time, real time, with Kameo charging through the midst on horseback. Stunning. And not even a hint of lag.
The sound is well done, as well. The voices are decent, the sound effects are great and the music in the background is stunningly beautiful.
Kameo is about a 10 or so hour game, give or take. But it is incredibly fun and can be enjoyed by almost any gamer, regardless of age. I would definitely recommend picking this one up.
