T for Teen: Comic Mischief, Violence
Genre: Third-Person Action
Meet Jade. She's a brunette beauty with an eye for mystery and a camera to uncover it. When the would-be heroine's futuristic planet is threatened by aliens, Jade finds herself thrust into the heart of a vicious conspiracy that could stretch to the very top of her government. This stylized, extremely gorgeous third-person action-adventure plays very much like a Zelda game.
Jade can explore a huge, water-covered world by hovercraft or take to a variety of islands and interact with merchants, or tackle assignments to earn money and advance the surprisingly deep and intriguing storyline that surrounds her quest. She can also gain a number of items and weapons that are integral to advancing and a lot of fun to wield. Packed full of twists and turns and even a talking man-pig, Ubisoft has crafted yet another big adventure series.
This game is weird. It seems to me like Dora The Explorer had a baby with Pokemon Snap... to some extent. You have a humanoid pig like creature, you're wearing a backpack, have a Spanish speaking "friend" and youre going around taking pictures of the wild-life. I played this game for few minutes one day just to check it out and see what it's all about. All I can say is "weird". Amanda, on the other hand, played it last night for about an hour and she liked it for what it was but ended up turning it off to play The Hobbit instead. Personally, I want to play through to the end to see exactly how weird it actually is.
