  • Excerpt: "Being a big fan of the original film I was extremely interested to see what the game would entail. What I expected was that the game would pick up where the movie left off (with kurt russel freezing to death) however the game starts off with you a quazi - military person sent into the area to find out what is going on. This is where the game really scores well, the story line is most excellent and makes up for the lineair aspect involved in most ...
  • Pros: Thrilling action game with nice ambiance
  • Cons: Fairly lineair

  • Excerpt: The Thing es un juego, en principio Survival Horror. Formamos parte de una expedición científica que encuentra congelado en el hielo algo como de otro Mundo. Un extraño ser que copia al menos en su aspecto externo a las criaturas que devora. Esta aberración, como ya se verá ni mucho menos está muerta. Un game en el que veremos cómo nuestros compañeros sucumben a la paranoia así como víctimas de la criatura.
  • Pros: Pasaremos un buen rato .  Un juego un tanto distinto a otros del Género .
  • Cons: El Precio .
