Summary: Gameplay:- 10/10 A retro gamer's delight. As far as 3rd person shooters go this is not your average CoD of GOW type game. P.N.03 is all about the high-scores, combos and total points achieved. By getting better at this game, you'll become more proficient at maxing out your score. The gameplay is simple, you play as Vanessa Z. Schneider, an agent with a metallic, slinky battle suit who shoots lasers from her palm.
Summary: One of the legendary 'Capcom - Gamecube Big 5' great game, very different from normal 3rd person shooters - more of a rhythm game almost. It's all about timing and remembering the sequences. There's nothing quite like it out there and probably never will be again so pick it up now before it's too late!
Excerpt: P.N. 03 is an Arcade based adventure game by Capcom. From the back of the box: The distant future. Planetary colonisation continues and the army has given control of its defensive weapons to a Computerised Armament Management System (CAMS). Tragedy strikes when one of the settlements is turned into a killing field after a CAMS malfunctions. In an effort to bring the situation under control of the military sends in Vanessa Z.
Summary: Don't let the boxart deceive you: this isn't a Devil May Cry style action-adventure. It's not Tomb Raider. It isn't even Rez. It's Space Invaders. Firing up the game, even with the most open-minded approach, is instant dissapointment. Movement is limited and seemingly clumsy, enemies are dense automatons, and the scenery is simplistic to say the least. Still, you've spent money on it, so you persist. Room after room.
Excerpt: PN03 is a FPS game by Capcom - the people who worked on it also worked on Devil May Cry amongst other things. In PN03, (pronounced PN 3, the 0 is silent) you play Vanessa, a mercenary suffering from memory loss, working for a faceless agent. Equipped with a exo suit that allows you to do some great accrobatics moves and shoot energy beams from the palm of your hand, your mission is to destroy the Computer Armed Management Sytems (CAMS) which malfunctioned and turned a...
Summary: I had a lot of fun with this game and played it right through to the end. At its heart it's a pretty simple action game - no great plot or gameplay subtleties, but I see this as a good thing. And it's very cheap nowadays! The controls are different to many similar games and so it takes a bit of time to get used to them - but I definitely wouldn't say that they are poorly designed. They are perfect for this game. The key to this game is timing.
Summary: At first I was thrown by the seemingly irksome controls of this game, where you have to stand still to shoot etc. But I quickly came to see that this was not a mistake at all, but very much intentional. It's part of the game mechanic and it works really well. You have to dodge and perform special attacks standing still, which is balanced by the predicability of the enemy's moves etc. It works REALLY well, although is not at all how I imagined the game to be.
Don't be fooled by the pics on the cover and back of the box

Summary: I brought this game in the shop Virgin for £10 I had read the reviews on here befor and saw all the bad ratings which people have given it. I saw this game in Virgin for £10 and thought i'd give it a go. On the reviews here they don't actually tell you what the game is about. Well im ging to tell you! Say on level one, There are 11 rooms, you have to go in all 11 rooms and kill the bad guys and that's it. All thru the game. My advise is don't buy this game.
Summary: In a nutshell; Amazing graphics! Great sound. Great concept although a little 'lara-ish'. In its entirety; let down by the repeated surroundings, levels and repeated end-of-level bosses. Game play has certainly taken the back seat to this visually stunning game. Bitterly disappointing. Not worth buying or even renting.
