“Mind Jack” Review - (PS3)

About.com
28 June 2011
  • Conclusion: "Mind Jack" is a brilliant gameplay concept that just wasn’t effectively executed. If you can get through the ear screeching intro level and then get far enough through the tutorial to hack into other players game you can find some fun. It's mostly based on screwing with fellow gamers, and trying to hinder their advancement to the next mind numbing cut scene. That kind of vindictive enjoyment can only last for so long.
  • Pros: "Mind Jack" your way in and out of characters and machines alike, Hack in and out of other player’s main story lines, Fight with or against your fellow Hacker’s, "Mind Jack" your way in and out of characters and machines alike, Hack in and out of other player’s main story lines, Fight with or against your fellow Hacker’s
  • Cons: Time spent as a "wanderer" is accompanied with terrible white noise, Cut-Scenes are frustrating and poorly scripted, The Graphics feel like they belong on a PS2 not the PS3, "Mind Jack's" basic gameplay mechanics are difficult and clunky, Time spent as a "wanderer" is accompanied with terrible white noise, Cut-Scenes are frustrating and poorly scripted, The Graphics feel like they belong on a PS2 not the PS3, "Mind Jack's" basic gameplay mechanics are difficult and cl...

  • Summary: History is full of games that boasted fantastic concepts, but failed to deliver when all of its brilliant ideas were put into practice. Some of the most creative games are also some of the absolute worst, as whoever came up with it simply lacked the funds, time or talent to see it through. You'll be thrilled to know that MindJack does nothing to buck the trend.

Review: Mindjack (Sony PS3)

  • Excerpt: Normally this would be where I’d open things up with a little bit of personal backstory relating to the game I’m about to review. But this time around, I can’t really think of anything I could possibly use as a personal anecdote to properly convey my feelings about Mindjack that without getting myself fired from the site, or possibly arrested, depending on the state you’re reading this in.

  • Conclusion: The best feature is the inclusion of local and online co-operative gameplay. This is completely separate to the single-player story, and demands a different mind-set from the player to complete its puzzles. Granted, co-op play requires people of a certain intelligence level to be played successfully, making it a good way to filter out the morons on your friends list.

  • Excerpt: After watching the trailer for Square Enix’s latest sci-fi cover-based shooter, Mindjack, you’ll be thinking one of two things. Firstly, can it get any better than eliminating your enemies with nothing else but the power of your mind? Secondly, why oh why would you want to use your mind when you can just use a big gun?

  • Excerpt: We’re just a month into 2011 and already we have an early contender for worst game of the year. That game is Mindjack. It’s unfortunate too because Mindjack presents an interesting concept. It’s just that everything else about this sci-fi cover-based third-person shooter is an absolute mess. That interesting concept is Mind Slaving and Mind Hacking. If you wound an enemy enough without killing him, you can use Mind Slave to convert him into an ally.

  • Conclusion: So is it worth your precious time and money? I suppose it all depends on how much enjoyment you derive from this short game’s multiplayer. If you like to jump into people’s games and prevent them from progressing, you may find more than your fair share of replay value in this title. If you like to help people out, jacking in as a blue-hacker will provide hours of endless co-op goodness.

MindJack Review

  • Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is I believe that our readers have the right to be warned when they’re going to play a bad game. Like the PEGI rating system, I believe that some games should be slapped with a large sticker that says “This game causes severe mental anguish – avoid at all costs”. And I firmly believe the first recipient of this sticker should be the joke that is Mindjack.
