REVIEWS Dokuro (PC) Review
Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

What do these ratings mean?

First real review see if i can do his right

Graphics: A. The game has the look of the remakes for the gamecube, Very smooth graphic appearance with that greyish like effect.  Areas in the game look very well done. not much else to really say here.

Sound:  B-.  Although there aren't too many more things more satisfying then the sound of a zombie head exploding from the single bullet of your handgun. The voice acting in the game is hit and miss, at one point, i paused the game and my brother, my dad and I started laughing uncontrollably after Chris delivered the line "Be careful, i'm sure its dangerous." after one of the bosses just got finished picking up my brother and slamming him into the ground, almost killing him. Although the voice acting at times can be bad, it hardly is a mach for the original resident evil............Jill Sandwich

Gameplay: A-  I think i can safely say that this game is the longest on the rails shooter game out there.  There are a few alternate routes you can take in a few levels, enemy types very, leeches are probably the most noted since they are one of the more annoying but, in my own opinion, its those ****ing monkeys you should worry about.  The game rewards you with accuracy, one shot kills at times with certain enemies like the zombie or crimson head, and boss fights will have a lot of variety, although some will seem easy while others will cause you a lot of frustration. You can play through with a friend but he or she better pull their weight since you share a life bar. There are plenty of items to find, some are documents while others are weapons or herbs, and while i'm at it, i should mention that you should conserve your ammo for bosses. the counter system seems to cheat you at times and can be a little unforgiving. Also, there will be times where you have to pay attention and press a certain action to avoid damage, think Resident evil  except less extreme.


Overall: This game is a very nice addition to the amount of wii games out there, I'd definitely  recommend adding this game to your collection. I leave you with one final thought.






"Don't open that door!!"
