Zorro The Chronicles is an action game, developed by BKOM Studios, inspired by the animated series, and released on every major platform. Fans of the animated series, or just fans of Zorro may be interested in checking out what this game has to offer. I would recommend waiting for a sale as this game is rather disappointing and frankly a little boring.
The set-up is rather simple. You play as either Diego or Ines, dawning the cape, taking down bad guys. There isn’t much of a difference with who you pick to play as. Ines has more health, and Diego has more stamina, but you can just upgrade both later anyway.
There was nothing that really caught my interest in this game. Everything felt so underdeveloped, or just copied from another game. Combat and stealth are practically ripped straight from Assassin’s Creed and Batman: The Arkham Trilogy, but done so much worse than those games. Clunky controls didn’t help the unsatisfactory gameplay.
The story, or lack there of, I should say, was so weak. It’s just your typical, these are the bad guys, take them out to win, kind of game. With poor combat, poor controls, poor stealth, and poor narrative, I struggled even playing through this game
Graphics and sound
The graphics and sound were fine for an indie game. It’s colorful, and the design serves its purpose, but it won’t leave you in awe.
Ultimatley, there aren’t many positives in this game, which makes it hard to recommend to anyone. If you love Zorro, there may be some enjoyment, but overall I was unimpressed.
