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
