"Lots of potential, but..."
3 stars"

The game had alot of potential, but there were many things that didn't quite get it there. If you own a PC and you brought this game to try out, you will understand straight away that the game was made specifically for consoles. The firing cursor is too big, and there is no way to change it. There are also certain features in the game that were a good idea, but wasn't developed further, for example the sprinting in the game is useful, but they programed it so you only ran straight, and you couldn't shoot at the sametime.

If I am not mistaken the game is actually using the Unreal 2 engine. The graphics in the game is by far one of the best I have seen, (but you do need a reasonable high spec computer to see it), I would say it is on par with games like “The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay”, “Unreal 2”, and even with some of the newer games of today. There are also features like crumbling pillars when you shoot at them, or things fall apart like guard plates on fences, which is a very nice touch, sort of like F.E.A.R but toned down. The weapons are also quite unique, especially the way they reload, but you will end up finding one dominant gun, and saving ammo of the more powerful guns for bosses.

Overall its not too bad, it has high potential but its just missing certain things that make other FPS great. For the price its at now, it is good to give it a try, and if you are just looking for a good wholesome FPS to waste time on, this would be the one.

"Tragic FPS"
1 stars"

This is one of the worst FPS games I have ever played. After half an hour of frustration at it's pathetic levels, enemies and weapons I uninstalled it and threw it in the rubbish.

Why?

Enemies that do nothing. Weapons that are inaccurate, and do zero damage. Boring, linear levels.

There is no point in wasting your time with this game.

"Brainless???"
3 stars"

I have had this game on my computer all this week, and so far I have quite enjoyed it. I must say that the biggest thing that grates is the weapons – they aren't very good, and at almost point blank, the chances are you won't kill anyone. This causes one to be more patient, altough the whole feel of the game is slower-paced than your typical fps, so I'm getting used to it.

The price is a bit steep, considering the short-comings. Beautiful game though

Purchased on Mighty Ape

A very boring game with so many faults – I expected better after all the hype. Extremely slow game load – like go and make a cuppa…No save function except by default -ie.some of the checkpoints are ludicrous – try the train trip! A laughable targeting reticule on vehicle guns, mumbled audio – I have no idea what anyone is saying. Really bad re-load on weapons, and horrible weapon change/s. I've had the game since this afternoon and I'm not sure I can stay awake long enough to play it any further. If you still want to play it – here's a tip – make sure you have the gun you want in hand before running over ammo packs. If you're short of sniper ammo,put the sniper gun in your hand,THEN run over the ammo.

Description

From the creators of Unreal® comes a spiraling plunge into destruction, despair and disease. Jack Mason is a burned-out doctor with no will to live, that is, until he nearly dies in a transport crash. Now he and his infected patient are stranded deep within the most vicious prison sectors of a wasteland called 'Earth'. In sixteen hours an orbital platform will initiate a total biohazard containment procedure: 50-megaton yield, detonated above sea level, to cleanse the contamination.
