  • Summary: [Xbox Live Arcade] In the land of Zenozoik, the city of Halstedom is ruled by a powerful clan, one which Ghat has betrayed by killing Father-Mother, the clan's leader.

  1. It's one of the few games where the hype is well deserved, and I'm really curious to see what the ACE team does for the next endeavor.
  2. While it won’t be to everyone’s taste, for those with whom it does click, there’s every chance it will become something of a defining experience and the source of many nightmares to come – rousing stuff indeed, and for 1200 MS points it really shouldn’t be missed.
  3. The game's appeal stretches well beyond its absurdities. [Aug 2010, p.99]
  4. Zeno Clash offers some very otherworldly character designs along with a good overall story and a fun first person fighting system, but, even with the extra challenge modes there is really not much to do once the game is completed
  5. Trippy plot. [Issue#60, p.107]
  6. For 1200 MS Points, the asking price seems too high for what it is. It's definitely more of an intriguing look rather than an instant classic.
  7. The brawling gets old fast and the game's design isn't conducive to using guns, making for some boring, linear gameplay, The lackluster narrative doesn't help.

    Great and original game right here. Story line was interesting enough to keep me entertained but it could have been a bit deeper and envolved. The art style is great and vany, Zeno clash also has a great soundtrack that really just adds to the world. The gameplay is solid and is pretty fun overall if not a bit repetitive and i found the campain a bit too liniear but its not a big deal. I would definitley check this one out if you have never heard of it. Expand
