The Ship Review

VideoGamer.com
22 October 2007
  • Excerpt: It's July 11 and I'm one of the first passengers to have come aboard The Ship. Dressed for the first time ever in a ball gown (honestly), I stroll through the corridors of a vast ocean liner listening to the haunting echoes of the kind of 1930's music that helped drive Jack Nicholson mad in The Shining. Nobody else I pass on the cruise seems to be in a welcoming mood though, as they are all racing around with only one thing on their mind, murder.

The Ship: Steaming Ahead at a Murder Party – Old vs New

Square-Go
12 October 2007
  • Excerpt: After months, nay, years of stress, who wouldn’t love a cruise? To get away from it all: work, bills, neighbors, family, reality tv. The Ship offers you the chance to forget your worldly cares and focus on one thing and one thing only: yourself. Specifically, yourself surviving. Thanks to the mysterious Mr.

  • Excerpt: The Ship brings to the table what the Hitman series failed to deliver – multiplayer assasination. As you can probably imagine the gameplay mechanics had to be changed to accommodate the fact that players would probably notice a strange assassin walking amidst them. Even more importantly, it wouldn't be much fun for only two players to be the hitman and victim while the rest would be just innocent bystanders.

Expert Review

The Laser
26 October 2006
  • Summary: To wrap things up, I have to once again eschew how much I enjoyed playing The Ship. It is one of the most fun and original FPS titles to come out in years, and I've clocked more than my fair share of hours on this online game since I found the hard drive space on my computer. The only real downfall I came across were the lack of servers on the internet for the game.

The Ship Review

GameSpot
26 July 2006
  • Excerpt: Cross-genre games typically take a walk on the mild side. You usually get something to the order of role-playing-game leveling up in a real-time strategy game, real-time-strategy combat in a role-playing game, or maybe a few adventure-style puzzles in a shooter. Generally, the more a developer hypes hybrid gameplay, the more predictable the game itself is likely to be. Uh, who's supposed to be killing whom here?
  • Pros: Innovative premise blends shooter conventions with a murder-mystery theme, Quirky sense of black humor makes for laugh-out-loud murders, Wide variety of makeshift weapons, Shipboard maps feature inspired art-deco visuals
  • Cons: Griefers can fairly easily mess up online games, Solo mode is pretty much abysmal
