    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.

    I'm not done with it yet but it's really good so far. The opening castle was tough, and the game looks awesome. Haters are just poor people who haven't seen it in hi-def. Expand

    I think RARE lost track of what they were suppose to do with this game. Kameo create a good gaming experience, but doesn't give gamers the full potential of what kameo could have been. My theory is that cameo should have involved some of the elements from Starfox:DP where kameo would do most of her combat with a weapon, like a staff that could be used to hit or shoot magic balls or something. Next I think they should have focused on using the elemental creatures like final fantasy uses their aeons, so that you don't get tired of using the creatures. Because as it stands, there is really no reason to become kameo, when all the aeons have the power. And let's not forget we bought the game because of the main character "Kameo", we didn't buy a game that was simply called "Elements of power". If rare makes another one of these I hope they incorperate these ideas, because if they had have planned the game right, it could have been the Xbox 360's answer to Zelda. Expand

    This game is too short. Don't buy it just rent it. It's a great rent. You can beat it in like 10-15 hours tops. There are some cool unlockables and stuff but really dont bother buying it cause it has no mutliplayer. There are lots of great attacks you can do with your differentm monsters and it has some of the best boss battles I've ever seen so it's worth playing. Expand

    The gameplay is mind-numbingly methodical and the entire game feels like it's in slow motion. On top of that, the game sports outright horrible creative design complete with quiet voices and droning dialogue. This is one of the ugliest and worst games I have ever played. I don't have a single good thing to say about Kameo. Expand
