amazon Giraffe and Annika reviews
In Giraffe and Annika, players will play the role of cat baby Annika adventure on a mysterious island to regain her memories.
First, when glancing at the graphics of Giraffe and Annika, most players will… lose their love at first sight.
But, don’t let your raw looks fool you!
Because in addition to adventuring into the three-dimensional world in the game, every moment and situation is recreated through … story.
Or rather, every time the cutscenes in the game come to mind, instead of watching the bad-looking graphics in the game, players will be scrolled through each page of colorful pictures like they are reading a Japanese comic book.
Thereby, not only shows more clearly the situations in the story, but also brings a joyful and entertaining for the player.
Giraffe and Annika combine many different gameplay.
For many current games, combining multiple gameplay in the game can bring variety and newness in the player’s experience.
But… Giraffe and Annika weren’t like that!
Because the game lacks the balance between the gameplay, instead, these content seem to be only temporary, less attractive later.
During the experience, you will have to cross the tunnel, battle bosses and so on again until the end of the game, apart from the difficulty increasing gradually, the game is nothing more than forcing players to run around to complete the mission.
Thereby, considering the quantity over the quality of the content in the game has brought redundant experience for players.
As mentioned before, Giraffe and Annika’s three-dimensional character designs don’t appeal to players, as shown through stereotyped movements, gestures or “dry” expressions of many characters.
Besides, the enemy in the game has only two main actions: shoot and chase the player.
More specifically, the monsters do very well in making you “bitter” by forcing the player to die or some ghosts constantly “firing” bullets from many sides even when you are standing next to the healing tower.
Besides, Giraffe and Annika also possess a lot of unique equipment and features, but only worth using a few times and then leave.
For example, you can collect and save the healing items, seemingly they will be useful in the future.
Healing towers are always scattered all over the map, players just need to stand close and wait a few seconds to… full of health bars!
So there’s no point in stocking up on items?
Or in the main quest, players are asked to wait all three days in the game to complete.
