3.0 out of 5 stars "For The Young Or The Young At Heart" Oct. 10 2007
By Tommy Sixx Morais TOP 100 REVIEWER
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
"Kameo:Elements Of Power" was released as lauch game at the time the XBOX 360 was released and seemed really like a game for kids more than anything with its cute and colourfull graphics also the storyline is much of a kid legend.Actually its a pretty good games for kids as it doesn`t have any bad language and you actually fight trolls!But its still a game that grown ups can enjoy too even if it was more intended towards a younger audience,its actually really hard to beleve this game was rated "T" for Teens.

You play as Kameo a fairy in her journey to save her world and her elemental ancestors from the Dark Troll king who threatens the world.I found that the main character of the game being a female is a major change as in most video games your character is a male and just for that some girls are instantly attracted to the game,and its not hard to beleve as playing as a fairy is very appealing to most girls,as for guys...anyway its a nice change of situation and its different.

What is really interresting is the ability that Kameo has to transform into creatures such as Chilla a kind of yeti with the ice powers or Pummel Weed(not what you think!!) a plant creature with boxing gloves(that is actually one of the coolest characers you will get to play as).As you start the game you have three creatures that you can morph into but you loose them a while after the beggening and must regain them along with all the others there are.

Kameo takes some strategy as sometimes just to get past some place you need to morph into a creature,jump,and while in the air transform into another creature and press a specific button to stick on the while and climb.Its really a kind of an adventure game with a bit of puzzle thrown in,and it works well togheter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Colourful and Fun for the Whole Family Jan. 21 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The freshman outing for Rare Ltd. on the X-Box 360, Kameo is a delightful romp through a whimsical fantasy realm of elves, goblins and the occasional talking plant. Kameo delivers balanced gameplay through an interesting system of character upgrade choices, a la Capcom's legendary Mega Man games. Surprisingly challenging gameplay given its apparent target demographic will keep the player engrossed for hours on end. The voice work is smooth and even, with a professional voice cast who take evident joy in their work and who complement the excellent play mechanics and sumptuous imagery.

If you are a parent buying this for your child, feel secure, as this game offers no unpleasant "mature" surprises. A pleasant opportunity to get caught up in a dramatic bid for power on an operatic scale will only enhance your child's appreciation and understanding of the tales you read them at night. Kameo is recommended both for the young and the young at heart.

3.0 out of 5 stars Did not age well Nov. 12 2011
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Kameo,

A game made by Rare, a company responsible for great titles such as goldeneye, banjo-kazooie, and others for the N64. When Kameo was released it was a near-launch title for the 360. The elements and graphics were great for its time. However, I played this in November of 2011, after infinite titiles had been released, and I have to conclude that this game did not age well. Poor camera angles, control mechanics, graphics/animations. That said it still is fun, and transforming into different beasts can be a blast. Reccomended rental if you can find it

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Own Launch Title Nov. 23 2005
By Terry Mesnard - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Action - Adventure with Morphing Abilities Nov. 26 2005
By Lisa Shea - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I really wanted to like Kameo - Elements of Power. Compared to the other release titles for the XBox 360, this one seemed relatively light and friendly.

The game is a traditional action-adventure game. In this case, there is hardly any plot line. You're a female shape-shifter whose family is held hostage by your jealous older sister. You have to work your way through level after level of enemies to save them.

In essence it's the classic problem of which shape fits best to which situation. Sometimes you need the ice crystal powers of Chilla, a big Yeti creature. Sometimes you need the sneak-underground powers of Pummel Weed, a plant creature. Maybe it's the rolling ball type abilities of Major Ruin that fit the need. The further you go in the game, the more creatures you can turn into.

This ends up being a complex set of puzzles. You have to roll and launch yourself into the air, but then turn into a Yeti mid-air to grab onto the wall. You have to flip up the enemies as the plant, but you do better pummelling them as something more powerful.

The game is cartooney, but the graphics are rather quite nice. The little flaming guys are much different in texture from the rock monsters, and the world around you has a different appearance depending on what realm you're in. We're not talking high quality modern photo-realism here, but the world is nicely rendered in its kid-like fantasy way.

The game is teen rated, so this is one of the few games that you can really feel comfortable buying for a younger gamer on the XBox 360. Most of the other games invole lots of blood, lots of swearing, or both. I honestly am not sure why they called this a Teen. Yes, you're killing enemies, but heck, they're all trolls. The elves clearly should win :)

The soundtrack is pretty nice, a smooth, classic style track that sings along in the background. It doesn't stand out, but it doesn't get in the way either.

I'm normally a fantasy / puzzle fan, but this one seemed just a little too "standard" to really catch my attention. No plot, no real connection with the characters and no real development. I didn't feel a great need to "keep playing" any time that I put the game down. That's the only reason I gave it only 4/5.

Recommended if you're into action puzzlers or have a younger gamer in the house that isn't quite ready for the raw gore of a mature title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really fun game and a nice break from FPS Dec 19 2005
By Micheal James Mcginnis - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I initially purchased Call of Duty 2 and Perfect Dark Zero when I got my xbox 360. We celebrated christmas a little early and I got Kameo. What a refreshing experience! I can't believe that this game hasn't gotten more hype. It can be compared to a "Mario 64" type of experience. Now this game doesn't have the pure awe inspiring power of mario 64 nor is it as long but what it does have is the platform/adventure aspect that I love in so many games. This game is just simply fun! I haven't beat it yet but I heard its rather short around 10 hours which is already telling me that I'm going to be dissappointed when this great ride ends. The graphics are amazing and seeing hundreds of Trolls running at you on screen is unbelievable and shows some of what is to come once the 2nd generation titles begin to come out for the xbox 360. I love the water effects and the fact that I have to morph into different characters in order to complete certain objectives. For example in one area a fire demon is attacking me so I turn into deep blue and spray him with water until I put out his fire. Then I morph into pummel weed and knock him out with an uppercut. My favorite warrior to morph into is this armadillo looking creature which rolls into a ball. it brings back fond memories of marble madness and I roll him around and reminds me of sonic the hedgehog as I build up his spin move and go barrelling into enemies sending them flying like bowling pins. This really is a fun game and such a nice break from firing machine guns and killing germans or sneaking around the facilites at datadyne. I really highly recommend at least renting this game to see what else your new 360 has to offer. I don't think you'll be dissappointed spending a weekend beating this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, a game for girls Jan. 26 2007
By E Huntley - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
For anyone out there who is sick of *all* games being geared towards guys, Kameo is the game for you. It's fun, not too violent, not so challenging that you have to spend another $15 on a player's guide, and the best part is that the main character is a girl - and not a gun-toting impossibly-proportioned femme fatale a la Lara Croft (or worse, a fashion and makeup obsessed bimbette like Barbie), but a fairy. It may sound cheesy, but that is what excited me the most about this game. The graphics are superb, the gameplay is great; an altogether good game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rare comes out swinging on the 360 with a beautiful game Nov. 28 2005
By Jeffrey Kelley - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is the best-looking video game I have ever played. Granted, it's the only game I currently have for my Xbox 360, but it's very visually appealing. Certain scenes, such as the Ogre's swamp, have huge characters on the screen with amazing detail that simply would not be possible on lesser consoles.

The game is fun to play, and that is its main selling point. All ten elemental warriors - characters you morph into and play as - have different strenghts, weaknesses, and abilities, and to beat the game one must use all ten effectively. From climbing an ice wall with Chilla to swimming underwater with Deep Blue, the variey is astounding. In battle sequences, too, the variety of the warriors is great. The choices range from punching combos with Pummel Weed to bowling with Major Ruin or playing sniper with Chilla.

If there's a reason not to rate this 5 stars, it's the replayability factor. Once you've beaten Thorn - the evil troll king - and gotten all 1,000 gamer points the game has to offer, it loses some of its appeal.

Overall, though, this is a great game and I would highly recommend it to any player of any age.
