Run Like Hell was originally set for release in Australia last year, but it was pulled from our shelves…with good reason. Somehow though, it got a release here, and one of the most disappointing games of 2003 in the USA is now one of the worst of 2004 in Australia.
It isn't without redeeming features, such as Lance Henriksen (Millennium, Alien) voicing the protagonist and some Xbox Live Downloadable Content updates, as well as a few atmospheric moments.
But it can't save RLH from being a mediocre game with plain graphics, poor controls, and little of interest. It doesn't even seem like the hero runs that fast or well, making a mockery of the title. Even at the RRP of $70 or a bargain-bin price, it's hard to recommend this sub-standard game to anyone at all. It's no wonder Interplay almost went bust.
