Summary: This game is absolutely amazing. The story is compelling, and the gameplay is still fresh. It is a decent 6-8 hour game, and the challenge is decent. It unfortunately doesn't provide a whole lot of incentive to replay, unless you want to go for a speed run, or just have marathons or something. I strongly recommend this game.
Summary: A game from the makes of the Time Splitters franchise about a patient with no memory who escapes a military medical facility in an effort to find out who he is why he was there and whats happened to him. Oh and did i mention he has psychic powers?!! That's right psychic powers!! Oh and guns!! Psychic powers and guns!!

Summary: Second Sight has a brilliant story and a great idea behind the gameplay. You take on the role of John Vattic, who wakes up in a secure hospital/research facility with a battered, scarred body and a killer headache. He has no idea how he got there or what these people want with him. But he soon learns that he has extraordinary psychic powers such as telekinesis, self-healing, astral projection and the ability to possess baddies.
Excerpt: I have just finished playing this game and had to put pen to paper to express how impressed I was by this game. It was made by the same people behind Timesplitters so it was obvious that it was going to be good but I wasn't expecting it to be this good. The plot is quite complex for a game of this sort and part of he fun is fitting the pieces of the puzzle together the more you get into the game so I won't dwell on plot.
Excerpt: Imagine having psychic powers, you could cheat in basketball or levitate the TV remote when you can’t be bothered to get up. Well John Vattic can, but he doesn’t use them to make himself more comfortable. You assume the role of John Vattic, a man who has just woken up from a coma with amnesia. He soon finds that he has a plethora of psychic powers at his beck and call, and a government conspiracy to crack.
Excerpt: I personally did not buy this game, as it did not really look like the sort of game I would go for, however, my younger brother saw the television adverts and thought it looked good, and although I advised him against it, he went out and bought it anyway. To my surprise, when I started to play I found it really enjoyable and got quite involved.
Pros: Atmospheric, good controls, psychic powers !
Cons: Far too short to not have multiplayer gameplay
Summary: Well this game snuck up on me big time, I didn't even know Free Radical were working on another non-timesplitters game. So it came as a pleasant surprise when I stumbled across it a few weeks ago and put my order in straight away. So what we get for our money? Well what we have here is a third person view adventure game which a damn good plot and excellent graphics. Although, first impressions weren't good it has to be said.
Summary: An utter delight! Imagine what would happen if Codemasters (creators of the masterful "TimeSplitters 2") managed to get their hands on the Metal Gear Solid 2 engine... This is it! Second Sight retains the superbly intuitive combat engine from TimeSplitters, as well as adding a superbly realised Stealth aspect into the mix. We are even treated to a fairly in-depth plot line this time around (which is something of a rarity from codemasters)...
Summary: Halllooo!!! John Vatic ist wahrlich nicht zu beneiden. Als er in der Forschungsstation Osiris aus der Narkose erwacht ist er von Wunden umgeben jedes Teil seines Körpers schmerzt. Schlimmer noch, John Vattic ist plötzlich ein Mann ohne Vergangenheit. Ein Arzt der durch eine Verschwörung selbst auf dem OP-Tisch landete und nach einem schweren Eingriff an einer unheilbaren Amnesie leidet.
Excerpt: Mai pensato come ci si sentirerbbe a poter usare la telecinesi, a poter far volare le persone (come in un noto telefilm di successo attualissimo) a poter creare una propria immagine residua per farla andare in avanscoperta? Se a tutte queste domande avete ...
Pros: giocabilità ottima e buon sistema di controllo
