The launch of the Xbox 360 was accompanied by little gems like this Kameo Elements of Power developed by Rare Studios.
Year 2005. The new Xbox 360 hits the market and a new game (two, in fact) from Rare accompanies the new Microsoft console. For the writer, Rare has always been a very special company, having grown up with classics like Golden eye O Banjo-Kazooie in Nintendo 64, among many others. So, being a fan of the English company, the news that Rare was going to launch a game for the new and powerful Xbox 360 was received by me like water in May. So today I want you to guide me on the path of memories by looking back on Kameo: Elements of Power.
The first thing to say about Kameo is that he had a complicated development, to say the least. During its development, the project went through four different consoles: the Nintendo 64, Gamecube, then the original Xbox, and finally it was intended as a launch title with the long-awaited Xbox 360. Kameo’s plot begins with an elf who must travel the world to regain your elemental powers
How? ‘Or’ What elementary powers have been implemented is without a doubt the most positive aspect of the whole title. Instead of having creatures under our control (which seems to have been the plan from the start, turn the game into a experience almost similar to that of Pokemon in its early days), Kameo can instead transform into creatures, i.e. a monster capable of fire eater and can light torches, or some sort of boxer plant it can hit enemies. In all, Kameo has five powers different to choose from, which are fire, plant, rock, ice and water, and you can use two different forms of each power, making it ten “Elemental warriors” in all. Each of the powers are found or activated just in time to be useful, so although the game has puzzles, most of the time you just have to worry about what can you have the last one and use it to progress.
The fight in Kameo It was something that may not have been at the overall level, but this mechanic offered an interesting twist that was nothing more and no less than potency slow down time
Another thing that many of us buy ourselves for Kameo opted for its graphics section. With the launch of a new generation of hardware, all gamers were eager to have something to put in their mouths so that we could test the power of our new consoles. And this Kameo did very well. The game world was colorful and vibrant, and even when I played the game again just 1 year ago, if I remember correctly, it still looked amazing, with very interesting graphic details and lots of enemies to fight.

As Kameo turned the months, they launched additional downloadable content. Luckily Rare was very classy and promised ahead of launch that he would add a free cooperative way, which they filled out. Other DLC packs included new costumes and also the Kameo power supply which, in addition to leaderboards, offered players new achievements up for grabs. However, the biggest surprise was the incorporation of new game modes. Attack against the clock allowed co-op players to try and complete levels as quickly as possible and Rune battle This gave two players the chance to collect as many items as possible.
Kameo: elements of power was relaunched in 2015 with the fantastic Rare Replay compilation, including all subsequent content. Even if you have a saved game in the cloud version xbox 360 you can import it without problem into your Xbox One or Xbox Series. The game is currently available in glorious 4K, so if you haven’t tried it out yet, you’re already making time. You might be surprised to learn (as I was) that a sequel was planned it was canceled a few years ago. Too bad, because that would have been a great addition to the Xbox One catalog.
