Blue Stinger (DC)

  • Excerpt: Forget who you are. You are now Elliot Ballade, an agent of the search and rescue, um, company known as ESER, AND you are Dogs Bower, captain of a supply boat and general tough guy. Yes, you get to be 2 people in this game. That may sound weird, but this game is full of that. You get used to it. So, ya.

  • Excerpt: This Dreamcast treasure really shows what the system is capable of. The transition from the intro FMV to the actual gameplay (and future FMV's as well) is seamless and really quite impossible to tell where one ends and the other begins. Well, except for the fact that your character is just standing there, waiting for you to move him. That's a big hint. The worlds are incredibly expansive and very well done.

  • Summary: Blue Stinger isn't all bad, although it is a bit short. I did like watching the story unfold and enjoyed the exciting climax. Although the dialogue was poorly done, the plot kept me enthralled. While Blue Stinger lacks in many areas, it did keep my interest throughout the entire game, which is worth quite a few brownie points. If Blue Stinger would have been presented in true survival horror fashion then it may have scored higher, but that isn't the case.
  • Pros: Good Graphics, moving musical score, easy to learn control scheme, enthralling plot, puzzles are simplistic yet not dull, cool weapons.
  • Cons: Crappy camera, poor character animation, bad voice acting, not really a survival horror game.

  • Excerpt: With the launch of the Sega Dreamcast, a world of gaming possibilities opened, for new tales to be told with unparalleled realism and graphic quality. Until such games exist, gamers will take whatever they can get. Thus is guaranteed the success of the dull Blue Stinger, from Activision.

  • Excerpt: Here's a 3D horror adventure that tries a little too hard to be Resident Evil for the Dreamcast. Dumbed-down gameplay is almost too simplistic. Likewise, great splatters of blood and grotesque monsters are none too convincing, though it all looks grand on the super-console that Sega built.

  • Excerpt: is a guy named Eliot and the setting is a bio-lab on an island which has been visited by an alien being.  You (Eliot) start with no weapons or ammo, just your fists.  Along the way you'll encounter other characters like Dogs and Janine, which eventually become controllable.  You'll have to collect keys, ID cards, weapons, ammo and other items which flash to hint where they are.  Some of these items can be bought or given to you as well. These weapons are needed to...

  • Summary: Ich kann von meiner Seite aus jedem Blue Stinger nur empfehlen, da es wirklich gut gemacht ist, auch wenn es kleine Schönheitsfehler besitzt. Dieses Spiel wird euch sicherlich viele spannende Stunden und actionhaltigen Fun bescheren, gewürzt mit einer doch guten Atmosphäre, die ihre Eigenständigkeit hat.
