    From the breathtaking graphics to the stunning orchestral score, it screams next generation at you and it backs this up with truly imaginative, varied and engaging gameplay, with all aspects of the game featuring a host of lovely features that simply couldn't have been achieved had this game been released on Xbox as planned.
  2. It's a very deep and sophisticated adventure with enough visual va-va-voom to keep even the most hardcore gamer gripped from start to finish. [Official UK Xbox Magazine]
  3. It's packed with clever and entertaining action, not to mention some of the most highly impressive, razor-sharp graphics you've ever seen, along with terrific music and sound. Kameo feels rather disjointed at first, and it's not a particularly long game, but it ultimately provides a rousing, memorable journey.
  4. You might breeze through it, but it'll be a cool breeze.
  5. It’s flat-out beautiful to watch but considering Kameo’s been in development for about four years by my estimation (and on three different platforms: GameCube, Xbox, and finally Xbox 360) I would have expected this, though it doesn’t excuse the slapdash story cuts.
  6. A respectable adventure, but it drives players forward with its visual content and not its gameplay. [Jan 2006, p.144]
  7. Rare said that the game was basically completed on past systems anyway, then touched up, and that's incredibly obvious.

    Most underrated game on the 360 and a masterpiece. If you like adventure games in any way in the mold of Zelda or Banjo Kazooie you owe it to yourself to play this. Almost perfect. Expand

    As a Launch title for the Xbox 360, it's a decent game. It's short and simple and even after jumping between more consoles during development then any other game, it turned out alright. The Puzzles and Game-play feel dated, but the game was originally intended for the Nintendo consoles where that kind of thing is still tolerated. The story is cheesy and the voice acting and overly epic music don't help this game feel like it's going for any audience at all. Overall it was worth then $8 at Game Stop, but I do feel sorry for those who got it at launch. Expand

    I love old school Rare games and was excited to play this, but the controls were unbearable. I bet this was a good game, but the controls just ruined the game for me. Expand

    Game was enjoyable, It was definitely more of a children's game. I will admit that I am playing it years after it's initial release so taking that into context it probably deserves better than what I am giving, but in today's playground this game is pretty dated. Boring plot, easy game play but an altogether uplifting environment. Kind of like sleeping in on a sunday, maybe not that good. Expand
