The Train Defender: Action Games Make a Comeback on 5800sFiled Under Nokia 5800 Games
It’s been a while since we kicked some a** on our 5800s and we were looking for some action games over at the Ovi store. That’s when we stumbled upon one of the new entries in the store- The Train Defender.
The game as the name might have suggested by now is all about defending the train from an onslaught of machine gun waving rogues. Hmm, sounds like a good story line for an action game. But how does it fare out as a game on our 5800s? Find out after the break.
Well, eager to get our hands dirty we started toying with the game as soon as we downloaded it from the Ovi store. While the game description in the Ovi store did raise our expectations, the game was a big let down. Graphics is mediocre and does no justice whatsoever to the capabilities of the 5800 hardware. Gameplay is no better either with a feel of the video games of the early 90s.
What we like?
- The story line of the game (We had to fill-in this section with something!)
What we don’t like?
- Poor graphics
- Poorer game play
To Put it in one line: we are thoroughly disappointed with the game. The graphics is so 90s that even the java based games on our S40 devices look better than what Train Defense offers on our 5800s. Perhaps the developers got the wrong target device atleast considering our 5800s. May be the game is better off on one of the entry level symbian devices but the graphics is so poor that even those users are bound to be let down.
After all that venom we just spit on the game, if you are still interesting in giving the game a shot, you can download it for free from the Ovi store.
