The Thing (PC): The Thing

dirtyripper, Dooyoo
25 August 2011
  • Summary: The Thing is a third-person shooter game for the PC developed by Computer Artworks in 2002. It is based upon the 1982 film The Thing and borrows many elements from the plot of the film. In the film, a research team at an Antarctic scientific research station encounter a dangerous alien life form which has the ability to resemble other creatures. They soon find out that they cannot trust each other, since they can't be sure that any one of them is not an alien.
  • Pros: Exciting, good graphics and atmosphere
  • Cons: Only that it is pretty scary

Sci-Fi/Horror

M.O.R., amazon.co.uk
3 July 2010
  • Summary: Although dated, this game still manages to be atmospheric, creepy and occasionally chaotic (waving a flamethrower around in a confined space can be hazardous to your health - and be careful with that grenade-launcher). The Thing is also one of the few games where utilising your squad can frequently save your bacon, though some of them will, inevitably, turn on you - which actually just adds to the games' playability.

Fantastic.

  • Summary: I completely echo the reviewers sentiments above. This is a top class survival horror game. It manages to do justice to Carpenter's source material, yet giving the player a fresh spin on the familiar horror genre. Yes, there are flaws, chiefly the team blood testing dynamic, but I believe the quality on offer here is comparative to games like the original resident evil and it's associated ilk, due to narrative, pacing and the delicious prospect handed to the viewer of...

Simply a great game to play WHEN is Thing 2 coming out

Simple Simon "Simon", amazon.co.uk
9 October 2006
  • Summary: 4 years after playing this game I still remember it fondly. The best game i have played ever. Simply great atmosphere and story line. Get it and you will enjoy it. From getting chased by Aliens, your won team mebers attacking you or army personal trying to take you out this is an all out action game you simply cannot but fail to enjoy. Please developers bring out "The Thing 2". I keep hping to hear this one day but nothing as of yet. Oh well I can keep hoping.

Computer Game Sequel to John Carpenter's film, "The Thing"

L Sandowsky, amazon.co.uk
22 January 2005
  • Summary: "The Thing" takes up the story just a few hours after the end of the movie. It is a worthy homage to John Carpenter's adaptation (1982) of the John W. Cambell's story ("Who Goes There?") since its attention to visual detail, location, mood, and the development of the primary theme of "who can one trust?" are spot on.

„The next big thing”

Sylvia, bol.de
3 September 2009
  • Summary: Es ist eines der besten Spiele, die ich in letzter Zeit gespielt habe. Aufregend, spannend und auch lustig. Endlich wieder mal ein super Abenteuer aus der Feder von Crimson Cow wie wir Abenteuerliebhaber sie lieben. Die super Comic-Aufmachung verspricht Dir eine lange Spielzeit. Denn es ist nicht immer so einfach auf des Rätsels Lösung zu kommen. Doch immerhin beim Gespräche führen (mit allen Personen immer wieder reden) kommst Du immer wieder weiter.

horror y locura en la antartida

juanpabletes, Ciao
30 September 2004
  • Excerpt: ...no se si van a pensar que exagero..pero para mi es de los mejores juegos que he jugado apc..muy ganchero.... la trama es algo parecida a la de la peli original ( 1982) pero lo suficientemente propia para darle un aire propio al juego...los monstruos... muy bien hechos...y no son ningunos estupidos...si les damos con lanzallamas ...retroceden y buscan el mejor angulo para atacarnos...
  • Pros: ambientacion lograda increiblemente, sonido convincente,ia  excelente,realismo en la interacicion con los personajes, ( no estan al pedo)
  • Cons: creo que para la mayoria sera un juego dificil y tensionante .  . para mi no .  .
