Summary: I bought “Cryostasis” because of its fascinating setting and ominous atmosphere. The entire game takes place on a huge derelict ship, lost in the Arctic for decades and covered in ice. I quickly found out that even though it feels and plays like a first person shooter, “Cryostasis” is not your standard action game.
Summary: This game started out a little slow and then just got more and more interesting, i wouldnt put it in the fps category its more of a mix of fps and mystery/puzzle category(its not a fast paced run and shoot game) but it was fun nonetheless and for 5 bucks it was well worth it.I'm buying alot of these % dollar games now because if the game is bad you really cant feel bad as apposed to paying 50 and feeling you got ripped off.I thought the movie room scene was great a nice...
Summary: This game is nothing special and offers nothing new. The frozen environment is cool, and the setting has its scary/eerie moments. Specially considering the primitive and basic weapons or tools used as weapons. I only played it for roughly 1 hour when I first got it, before I felt compelled to stop, and haven't felt like playing again since, except once, the introduction started but locked up and crashed immediately. So I put it away.
Summary: This game is Awesome,easy to play as far as controlling the hero looks great with the physX patch. great effects & eye candy,good story just be sure your hardware can handle it if you don't have a high end VGA card keep setting on medium, this game runs flawlessly on a EVGA GTX 275 with a GTS 250 physX card all settings on high
Summary: This game is really creepy. It has an excellent story, and pretty good visual effects. The combat could use a little work, but it fits the game style. The fact that this game uses PhysX for all its physics processing slows it way down at times. I wish game companies would stop using PhysX. Its a terrible API that only utilizes one cpu core. Overall, framerates are barely within acceptable on a 1gb hd 4870 with settings on high, advanced PhysX off.
Summary: The graphics in this game are awesome. You need a newer video card to take advantage of them however. I have a GTX 285 with an 8800 GT dedicated to physics processing and have all video settings on High. When I disabled the 8800 and ran all processing through the GTX 285 I had a noticeable drop in Frames Per Second, so it really pushes your video card! I found this an entertaining cross between shooting and problem solving.
Summary: The Good: - Superb atmosphere, made possible by fantastic sound and visual effects. - Scary. - Great story woven in layers with many, many symbolic elements. You should know that the story carries the game here, it's not simply just a vehicle for more cool stuff to do. Be sure to keep playing to the end, the payoff is very much worth it.
This years Bioshock. Deep, dark, scary and quite brilliant

Conclusion: For PC owners with a decent gaming rig, this is a must buy. Starting on a desolate and cold icebreaker, you are alone - or will soon wish you were! Dead bodies lie around you and you have the ability to enter their minds and see their last few moments. When you do you have the chance to change the circumstances of their demise and thus alter history - and open up a new passage of the game to play. Genuinly scary. Well designed.
Conclusion: I am writing this review after only playing an hour on the game so far, and i can tell you that the graphics are fantastic!! Providing you have a decent spec pc. The story well, you are on a ship frozen in the ice in 1968 north of russia and the ship has become full of mutated humans out to kill. You have to stay warm otherwise you will die in this game but this isn't a problem, as there are lights, generators,fires around every corner from which you can warm up from.
