Summary: I couldn't be happier with this purchase. My boyfriend had this game when it came out but it got lost and as an anniversary gift I got him this game along with a few other things and there was absolutely nothing better than his face when he opened this.
Blue Stinger -A stinger of a game that is a lot of fun.
5 January 2011
Summary: This was the very first game I purchased when I first owned the Sega Dreamcast. From the very start this game had amazing visuals. The graphics throughout this game are incredible and really showed just how powerful the Sega Dreamcast was. Unfortunately, at times the game may have been a bit too good. I remember at some levels you have a flame thrower and when using that weapon the game would seem to slow down a bit.
Summary: Can't really write an accurate review playing a game that's 12 years old, when there's next gen consoles to be played, haha. But this was a pretty decent game for it's time. Not too bad. Little on the tacky side but still pulls you in to the story! Rare to see games do that even to this day.
Conclusion: Blue Stinger does a lot of things right. It shows off the Dreamcast early on by displaying the vivid, life like textures, well modeled characters and detailed environments. The game play features some inspired elements like the multiple characters with noticeable strengths and weaknesses, the vending machines and the expansive environments.
Pros: Blue Stinger was one of the earliest releases for the Dreamcast. Some stores were even stocking the game before the console. Often launch titles are crude, often riddled with problems or are just low quality as the developers have not had enough time to adapt to the new hardware. Blue Stinger, along with almost every other Dreamcast launch title bucked this trend and delivered a graphically stunning, slick survival action game.
Cons: The story is methodical. There is a mystery you have to solve, there are mysterious characters you must find the origins of, you have to overcome the infection, find a way off the island and everyone is happy. It's happened before. It's the plot of almost every single other Survival Horror game. The acting is serviceable although at times the actors lack emotion, sounding bland and static. There was an occasion where Dogs began to spout random obscenities which was pu...
Summary: Not the best game but not bad either for its time. If you compare this game to Resdient Evil or Silent Hill which were huge titles around when this game came out then this game will most likely disappoint you. Blue Stinger is a totally different experience from your typical survival horror games. This is not really a horror game but more of an adventure game. The game focuses more on weirdness,bizarreness and humor.
