One | Nokia N-Gage Action Game
One of the most anticipated Nokia game for all you Nokia Ngage and S60 N-Series users is the sequel of One, The One. Released only a few days back on the 29th October 2008 One have already surpassed expectations in terms of sale. There have been a few misconceptions that developed around the game which in my personal opinion is simply the ‘hype’ about the introduction of fully motion captured animations on your smartphones screen. So the question is, are you the true One? Can you survive till the very last mission?
Nokia N-gage One is an awesome 3D mobile game which is really not for everyone and rest assured you might even hate it for what it is. It has already been much delayed in terms of its official release but it is sure worth the long wait and those who love action or combat games will looooove it. It was previously known as “One: Who’s Next?”. It’s an adult game in terms of pure gore and violence, (no no not sex and stuff!) and it will blow your mind off if you like multiplayer action gaming on your Nokia phones. One for Ngage offers some unique features which is certainly a positive step forward for the entire NGage community and even to its heritage.
The game was developed with the help of a real life 30 years experienced martial art expert and this offers you the ability to pull out moves which are truly cheeky and deadly for the opponents. N-Gage One takes place in several different locations like on the cool Caribbean, the trendy castles of India and even on the unforgiving deserts of Mexico etc.
You have the choice to customize your player’s detail and train yourself for better abilities during combat. Beside the use of the Nokia bluetooth devices, One also lets you share and compete internationally over at Ngage Arena. Nokia is even giving out a free Nokia N-Series S60 smartphone if you take part on the online competition.
A few years back when Nokia N-gage was introduced to the mobile handset market, One came out in the market and it was considered as the best mobile fighting game to date. Being its sequel and using such an efficient and powerful processing engine, is One worth the wait? Hell yeah it is!! It was the year 2005 back then and though One being an overall good/different styled game, it didn’t do that well compared to games like FIFA 2007 or FIFA 2008.
In its class it was one of the revolutionary games which did change how a person uses their mobile phones. Both typical gamers and action game lovers will love this game, period! This game is all about competition and survival of the fittest and to ensure that you can participate on the online ranking system of Ngage One.
The rankings are all publicly viewable which really is a fantastic thing for those of you who are looking for exposure. This game picks up where the previous one left off, the world we know are filled with talented and pro fighters and everyone wants to be King.
Your mission is to defeat everyone and be the King of the fighting world. The bosses are truly well trained and you just can’t play it once or twice and defeat them. In Nokia N-Gage One, you will need both luck and extraordinary skills to defeat the bosses. Even the gang members of the Bosses are hard to beat and will probably kill anyone the first time. Over time you will master yourself with different type of fighting skills like martial arts, street fighting, brawl fights etc and use them to defeat your opponents.
The overall gameplay experience is simply superb with no pauses between any combo moves and there is enough details for you to think otherwise at first glance. The graphic details of Nokia Ngage One for symbian gaming devices have been well designed to suit the environment of the fights. The game’s ranking system is denoted by ‘ELO’ and the more points or ‘Elo’ you gain, the better your international rankings become. If you are still not convinced about the awesome and unique gaming experience that N-gage 2.0 One offers then get a hold of this: Nokia NGage will reward the first 100 One gamers with at least 150 Ngage points by the end November 2008.
The number “One” person who will lead in the rankings by the end of November will receive 3 activation codes for additional NGage games, a spanking new Nokia N96 multimedia handset, 800 N-Gage points and loads of One related goodies. The One gamer holding the number two spot by the end of November will receive a brand new Nokia 3rd edition 5320 multimedia phone, 500 N-Gage points and loads of action goodies and gears corresponding the One game. So if you are a fan of the N-gage platform then hell knows that it is the right time to build and utilize your mobile gaming career and it is also the right time to get a shiny new Nokia N96 smartphone!
Like I mentioned before, N-Gage developed this mobile game with the help of a real world martial art fighter with over 30 years expertise in combat and it shows in the game because the moves are quite realistic. Flying kicks, hard punches and uppercuts are only the beginning of everything that will unwrap itself over time as you progress into the more difficult stage.
My advice will be not to change the player once you are deep into a level as you will have to start from the very beginning if you do. Take your time to practice through and also save your points/earnings to buy better accessories because even the gloves your player is wearing makes a big difference in punches! The training mode of this Nokia symbian game is really well built and you should take full advantage of it. As you will have to start your journey from the underground cringes of combat, you will understand the importance of training and even accessories.
Don’t only go for visually pleasing contents, though it really will not make a difference in the long run if you are that damn good. This Nokia game is certainly not the easiest game around and not everyone will be up for it, but surely all the ‘beat em up’ mobile gamers will love the storyline, overall gaming experience, multiplayer functions, keypad setup way much than anyone else! Remember though, you cannot compete online directly through fighting championships, the only way you can compete is through the points based rankings or through the use of a high speed bluetooth device (even a standard bluetooth is supported). But for all that’s in stake, this game is phenomenal and I do recommend it.
