  1. It may be a bit strange to handle at first, but once you get the feel of it, Azurik will astound you time and time again with it's lush graphics, wonderful sound, and massive environments.
  2. For anyone who played the game for an hour and says it’s no good should put a little more effort into the game because that is what the game is all about. If you expect to get anywhere in a short amount of time you can forget about it.
  3. The plot was as dry as the Sahara desert, the graphics were weak, and the controls were downright comical.
  4. If flawed controls don't kill the experience for you -- and as a plaform jumping, blade wielding title they certainly do affect the quality of gameplay -- then the constant backtracking and key hunting will eventually drive you to the point of distraction.
  5. Just about everything about the playcontrol is cumbersome. [Feb 2002, p.91]
  6. It’s also home to some of the most pathetic voice acting I’ve ever heard. [Feb 2002, p.59]
  7. There is nothing in this game which stands out to make it playable; not in the story, nor the gameplay, nor the graphics, and the vast majority of it is poorly thought out, second hand, uninteresting and redundant drivel.
