  • Summary: Get ready for an intense adventure--from the streets of New Orleans to the depths of a Louisiana bayou--where you'll explore and fight as a tattered-but-tough voodoo doll on a quest to find his keeper, Madam Charmaine. As Voodoo Vince, you can defeat quirky monsters and villains just by hurting yourself. Race under a falling safe, jump into a high-speed blender, or leap under falling rubble--all in the effort to defeat your enemies and escape completely unscathed. Expand

  1. It's infectious, fulfilling, and cheeky as all Hades, so enjoy the heck out of Vince, and then make some noise for a sequel. [Nov 2003, p.75]
  2. Doesn't really have any significant flaws beyond the odd moment of frustration and the occasional gimmicky voodoo power. It's beautifully presented, full of imagination, and delightfully off-the-wall.
  3. A challenging yet fully enjoyable platform game. With a name like Voodoo Vince, you don't expect much. But you get much.
  4. 80
    So much of it is familiar that it walks a tightrope between being fresh and being too derivative.
  5. Some puzzles require a more elaborate death, but the concept could have been taken a step further. [Dec 2003, p.82]
  6. 6 / 7 / 6 / 7 - 26 [Vol 815; 30 July 2004]
  7. As [Vince] laments the formulaic impositions of the game in successive cut-scenes, it only serves to remind you how much of a chore it is to play - and raises the question; why does every platform hero have to be a wiseguy? [Dec 2003, p.108]
