Versailles 2 Part 1
Versailles 2 is out in three parts on the
iPad. I am reviewing the first part - Versailles 2 Part 1. This app
reminds me of various Personal Computer (PC) games we have seen and
played here at Family Friendly Gaming. Since it is split up in three
parts it reinforces that observation. Versailles 2 Part 1 is also
educational in some ways. Owners of this app can learn about ancient
Players take on the role of Charles Louis de Faverolles. He is a young man with many dreams. He has to avoid the traps of the King's Court. The visuals and characters models in Versailles 2 Part 1 are very life like. I enjoyed the clothing that the characters wore.There is something so wonderful about all those ruffles from that era. Not everyone in this app is friendly. Some are out to get the player.
The voice acting in Versailles 2 Part 1 is sensational. They have the accents down masterfully. But Versailles 2 Part 1 goes beyond just the English speaking world. There are five languages in this iPad educational app. I enjoyed hearing the little nuances of emotion from the various voice actors. At times I could feel the disdain specific characters had for me.
Ninety-nine cents is very reasonable for the price of Versailles 2 Part 1. Part of this game is figuring out what to do. Once you have played through the game though, I can see few reasons to replay it. Versailles 2 Part 1 keeps the player going down a very set path. Certain things must be done before you can leave an area. At times I was frustrated because I could not figure out what to do.
Versailles 2 Part 1 is one of those games that will make you think. It is more a life simulation than the Sims franchise in my opinion. You are put in the shoes of a person during a certain historical time frame. The more you know about that time frame, the easier some aspects of this app are. I learned to think about problems in different ways thanks to Versailles 2 Part 1.
My biggest problem with Versailles 2 Part 1 is the size of the game. It is 951 meg on the iPad. The iPod Touch/iPhone version is around half that size. It took nearly six hours to download this game. And this is only one third of the entire thing. That is something to bear in mind if you are going to purchase Versailles 2 Part 1. You will have to be patient before you get to play it. I also got a little dizzy moving the screen around with my finger.
