Surprisingly addictive

  • Summary: Love this game. The only thing I hate is the pan/camera function is ackward and minimally responsive. Other than that, love it!!

Unique role-playing fun...if you like earthquakes, that is...

  • Summary: This is a good game with a great concept. The sound effects and scale really bring you into the experience in ways the graphics fail to do. If you place more emphasis on gameplay, you'll find this to be a rewarding, unique game. My biggest issue is not with the game, but the delivery from Target and the way it's represented on Amazon. The game was shipped by USPS even though Amazon said it was via UPS.

Unique and fairly fun

Karrigan Ambrian "Karri", Amazon

  • Summary: I had a friend a few years ago who would make his own games, his own 3D games. This game reminds me of those...erm, "efforts" of his. Camera can be pretty frustrating, graphics are a little "dated", and major slowdown happens if you dare do something action-packed like "running." But once you accept the fact that the game was made in somebody's basement, it's really not so bad and kind of interesting.

Disaster Report

  • Summary: The survival horror genre has definitely seen its ups and downs over the years, especially in the eyes of devoted fans like myself. From the brilliance of Pony Canyon's PC masterpiece Alone in the Dark to the terrible failure that was Infogrames' psychological mess known as The Ring, it's been an interesting ride to say the least -- and one that has seen all manner of premises, backdrops, and unexpected story twists.

Survive an earthquake!

A. Griffiths "Adrian", Amazon
15 March 2003
  • Summary: "Disaster Report" is a variant of the survival horror genre, but in this case, you are trying to escape from a natural disaster rather than zombies or monsters. Playing as a new reporter arriving on the huge island city, you begin the game stranded on a long bridge as the first tremor strikes the island. What follows is a precarious attempt to make your way throught the destroyed city to find a place of safety.

Not so much "Survival Horror" as just "Survival."

Justin D. Cooper "witty-nickname", Amazon

  • Summary: Let me start by saying that I enjoyed this game, though much of my review pinpoints its flaws, as there were many. The concept is great, second to none and wholly original for a console game. The idea of a quake-riddled city with dynamic, ever-changing environs and the constant worry of being crushed/dropped/unable to find sources of drinkable water/trapped by debris...
