Recommendation On - Platform/Adventure

Mr_GrinchMr_Grinch Registered User regular
edited August 2008 in Games and Technology
Ok folks, it's recommendation time. The format can be PS3, 360 or Wii and it can be disc based or downloadable! Although I'm not after a Virtual Console game (I've played most on there that I want to).

I have a hankering for some platform/adventure fun, something with an on-going plot if possible. It doesn't have to be an overly in-depth plot, something as simple as Mario Galaxy's is fine. To give you an idea of what I'm after, I've recently-ish played through the following similar games:

Psychonauts
Assassin's Creed
Prince of Persia
Mario Galaxy
N+
Ratchet and Clank
Sonic (Wii)
And to an extent Crackdown, but I would prefer something less shooty.

and I'm REALLY looking forward to:

LittleBigPlanet
Prince of Persia 2008

and need something to bridge the gap till they come out. I'm afraid PS2 is out of the question now too, my PS3 isn't backwards compatible and the one I had upstairs recently bust after too much Guitar Hero usage.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions, I've honestly walked the length of the store at Game and Gamestation today and still can't actually see anything I want to play!

::edit:: Now with correctly spelt title!

    Lost Winds on WiiWare is exactly what you're looking for, Super Paper Mario is a light RPG all done through 2D/3D platforming so it might tickle your fancy too.

    Edited for reading comprehension.

    I just Gameflew Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, and I agree with the suggestion. It's got some nice little Prince of Persia-esque jumping to it. It also has a fair amount of shooting, I know you mentioned it but I don't know if it's a deal-breaker or not.

    I love Zak and Wiki but it is more Adventure than Platform.
    Don't know how this will impact your decision.

    Zack and Wiki wasn't quite what I was after but it is ultimately awesome (I've played and completed it, and played through it some more!).

    And you're exactly right, Uncharted is spot on what I'm looking for. Unfortunately I was too docile to put it on my list and let you kind people know I'd completed it already :)

    Oooh, Lost Winds looks tremendously promising and it's actually completely passed me by up to now. Cheers for that I'll be buying it tonight.

    I have a love/hate relationship with LostWinds. On one hand I love Metroidvania-esque gameplay like it has but the game can get quite boring and annoying to handle and navigate at times. I enjoyed it but was also quite relieved when it was over. Shouldn't have lasted much longer.

    Buy Lost Winds even if it's just to give Frontier your money that they can get to work on Elite 4, dammit.

    Really though, it's one I want to get when I eventually get a Wii.

    I'm sure you've probably played it, but if you recently enjoyed Mario Galaxy it's nice to revisit Super Mario 64. It's on the VC for the Wii and almost as good as you remember it being.

    I enjoyed both Tomb Raider: Legend and Anniversary although I wasn't a big Tomb Raider Fan. It's Prince of Persia with guns.

    Metroid Prime 3 has a lot of platforming, exploring and puzzle solving.

    Knytt?

    PC, tiny little downloadable game, no real indepth plot to speak of (find these 8 things or whatever), yet a completely strange experience in platforming.

    Knytt is a great recommendation. Also, play Within a Deep Forest, the next game by the same author.

    Cave Story is a must.

    All of these can be had for free.

    Trying to steer clear of PC Gaming at the mo, just because I find these types of games really relaxing and my PC is dumped upstairs in a corner and isn't the most relaxing of things to play on. I have played Knytt, Cave Story etc though and agree they're fab :)

    Thanks for the recommendation of Tomb Raider up there, I forgot about the new ones, I played a demo and loved it.

    I'm about to give Lost Winds a go in a bit

    The problem with Uncharted for me was how the game has about 30 minutes of jumping and like 8 hours of "non stop 10 enemies respawn at a time shooting".

    I thought it would be tomb raider but it was far from it :(

    I thought it was shorter before I started typing it. Also, it can be considered short because I left Castlevania: PoR off it since it's in my DS and I can't find my copy of DoS?

    Your list is sorely missing Kirby Squeak Squad. No DS platformer collection is complete without it.

    Super Princess Peach is pretty fun too, but easyish.

    Is that Kirby game actually good? For some reason I thought it was shit so I've never picked it up.

    Also, the girlfriend has games that I've played through and didn't list. Animal Crossing, Lost in Blue, Lost in Blue 2, and Super Princess Peach are on it but I don't remember what else was. I definitely enjoyed SPP.

    The only other game I've been considering for a while is Yoshi's Island 2. Don't know if that's actually any good or not. And there's lots of things that might have fallen under my radar.

    Oh man, Kirby Canvas Curse is a classic. Must have for NDS platformer fans.

    Yoshi's Island 2 is either fairly good, or completely terrible, depending on whether you're expecting it to live up to the expectations set forth by the original SNES game.

    With Canvas Curse I can say that I've never had more fun guiding a pink ball around by drawing rainbows. :D

    GameTrailers says Squeak Squad is kind of crappy, but if a few people here are willing to vouch for it then I'll grab it. I know it's cheap now. I'm really looking forward to Super Star Ultra.

    How can you even assume a Kirby game to be shit, I mean it's not like Kirby games are usually shitty. In fact I can't even remember if there has ever been a shitty Kirby game, all of them are good to excellent and some of them are even certified classics (like Canvas Curse, Superstar, Crystal Shards, Tilt 'n Tumble, and Pinball). The Kirby series is kind of like the Zelda series in that sense (excluding the CDi Zeldas).

    That said, Squeak Squad is a lot of fun as well and one of the best looking DS games out there. It has the best 2D spritework you are gonna find on the DS.

    I feel it has enough platforming to keep him satisfied and enough awesomeness to keep him happy. So therefore I would totally recommend it to anyone looking for a Platformer/Adventure.

    I would not class it as a platformy adventure game personally.

    I would class it as an awesome game though (I have it on Wii)

    Cheers for the other suggestions folks, and being someone mentioned the DS I do actually have access to one now :)

    Also I didn't realise the new wario game was out next month, this is extremely good news, I'm so out of touch.

    Seiklus is a free PC platformer, similar to Knytt Stories (although Seiklus actually predates Knytt Stories by about four years). It's non-violent, has weird puzzles, and is generally surreal. I highly recommend it.

    I too second the suggestion for Drake's Fortune. It's true, there's tons and tons of shooting, but it never bores you and it always feels like a crazy-awesome adventure.

    If Crackdown fits into your tastes, I highly, highly, highly reccomend Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction. It's backwards compatible on the 360, and is arguably the best superhero game ever made. Seriously, someone back me up on this.

    Also because some Bandwagons are correct, if you haven't already, you should check out Portal. It's a platformer in the loosest possible sense of the word, given there's no jump button - but I feel it qualifies. You cleverly negotiate and manipulate the environment to pass through various rooms and bypass enemies.

    In fact, just pick up The Orange Box. I know, Half Life is a FPS. But if there was ever a FPS that actually felt like an epic, story-driven adventure game, it's HL2.

    Also, check out the pixeljunk eden demo - once you get used to the mechanics its a blast. Can't wait for LBP!

    What about the Metroid Prime series?
