Retro gaming to the nth degree

Alexander Whiteside, amazon.co.uk

  • 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 ...

Basic but fun

  • 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.

Real jolly good fun

  • 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.

Misunderstood

"jamesgrahamuk", amazon.co.uk
18 September 2003
  • Summary: I think that Product Number 3's cold reception has much to do with a misunderstanding of what this game actually is. I can imagine how the screenshots of a lithe, athletic female character may have prompted comparisons to Tomb Raider and how in turn such expectations of a sci-fi Lara have damned PN03 as a disappointment. Well, it's not. Well at least not to those who can recognise the game for what it is - a shooter. Old school and hardcore.

Shoot in Style

15 September 2003
  • Excerpt: "That’s Product Number 03. This game was one of the ‘Capcom 5’ games that were in development for the GameCube. Very little was known about it at the time and it didn’t really cause as much excitement as Resident Evil 4 or the gorgeous-looking Viewtiful Joe but the style that was clearly seen on the screenshots and in the heroin Vanessa sparked some interest. The game is, basically, an old fashioned shooter there is nothing else to do. However while ...
  • Pros: Stylish  |  Good pace  |  Action packed
