Troubled by delays, Kameo began as a GameCube title before being moved onto the Xbox and finally seeing release as an Xbox 360 launch title. Rare's last several games, like Grabbed by the Ghoulies and Conker: Live & Reloaded, were disappointing. So how does the latest title from the UK developer measure up:
- GameSpot (8.7/10): "[Kameo] ultimately provides a rousing, memorable journey that'll be a fine way to excitedly spend some of your first hours with the new Xbox."
- 1UP (7/10): "Inspiration is taken from multiple sources, a solid-but-unspectacular game is built on that inspiration, every imaginable color and graphical effect is dumped on top of it, and everyone is given an awful pun for a name."
- GamePro (3/5): "The visuals are stunning, but the weak and repetitive game-play, the vapid cutscenes, and the groan-inducing attempts at humor make this game perhaps one of the most disappointing of the Xbox 360 launch."
