Othello reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Spain
Game based on the mythical Reversi where you have to flip chips to add more of your color than the opponent. The game is good, but it is better in many sections. ---GAME OPTIONS---We Have several types of game. Individual, local multiplayer and online multiplayer. The individual mode is fine, it presents several levels of difficulty haciédonse difficult in the middle of the game, in fact, AI is pretty good, at least for a mid-level player. The Local multiplayer is good, basically is to play against someone who is next to you, simple but is grateful to opt for that option. We also Have the online multiplayer mode. To start is not a very fluent online in that it becomes tedious to find a game but if you have friends who play it is easier. You enter a room where there is a chat and you can choose games created or create your own. Note that the game is in Spanish. The games can be from minute shifts to days. It Is common to play games whose turns are a week, but obviously if you move the opponent does not have to wait a week and can move yours whenever you want. When It's your turn you get a avisándote message. The Online has a very scarce community, who wants to take it I recommend having friends who play assiduously or unless they have the game. ---GAMEPLAY---IA is pretty good but the difficulty curve is quite abrupt going from playing a moderately easy game to playing a very difficult one for a normal player. This game requires a lot of tactics and if you are not a student player you will be hopelessly stuck at an intermediate point of the game. The tabs are placed with the mouse. In the multiplayer mode locating the second player you can use the keyboard to place token, which is to be appreciated. It Should be noted that we have ELO rating as in chess, but you can always play choosing if you do in qualifying mode or not. The game is replayable, but if you like possibly you will find another one with better features. ---TECHNICAL SECTION---One of the most careless points of the game. The graphics of both the Board and the tabs are pretty mediocre. We only have one basic board and we can't choose between various types. The graphics are not realistic at all as in other board games. In This aspect the game loses a lot. As for the sound does not improve in anything to the graphics, having a few simple melodies that are made quite repetitive, however accompanies the game and does the right way its function, but in general form are very simple melodies. ---NOTES----game Options 7/10-Gameplay 7/10-Technical Section 4/10 Rating Media 6
