  • Excerpt: The third-person shooter genre is one that garnered little to no attention last-generation. This generation we have seen such titles as Freedom Fighters, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Splinter Cell, and now, kill.switch. While I don’t have much of a genre preference, the third person shooter genre has consumed a lot of my gaming time this generation, probably about 10% of it.

  • Conclusion: The PC version of kill.switch offers better graphics and a smoother experience (in terms of frame rate) but unfortunately the subtitles have been removed and this outweighs the other advantages.

  • Excerpt: At first glance, Namco's kill.switch looks like a pretty standard third-person military-themed shooter. It has a look to it that recalls both Konami's Metal Gear Solid and Ubisoft's Splinter Cell, though it focuses more on shooting enemy soldiers in the face than on deep storylines and complicated stealthy maneuvers.
  • Pros: N/A

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Make it longer, provide more situations where you could take advantage of the realistic human AI, and give me a more accurate sight (so when I shoot where the cursor is, the bullets always go there), and Kill.Switch turns into a gem. As it stands, it's a good game that has better-than-average gameplay, some sharp visuals, fantastic sound, and a whole lot of bad guys to take care of.

  • Excerpt: The problem with "kill.switch" is, no, not the lowercase lettering in the title, but rather the fact that you know what to expect from it from the moment you turn on your console.

  • Summary: The only game title to end and begin a sentence using smaller cased letters, and has nothing to do with the death of switches' damn't.

  • Excerpt: Namco's duck-and-cover-heavy shooter manages some innovation and a decent story, but can the house that Dead to Rights built learn from their rookie mistakes? Enhanced soldiers are all the rage these days. It seems it's not enough anymore for a grunt's five o'clock shadow and harsh language to be their biggest weapons, no, it takes nanomachines and neural implants to get the job done in times like these.

Kill.Switch

Gamecell
19 October 2007
  • Conclusion: Kill.Switch doesn't play like a Metal Gear Solid copy, nor is it a Syphon Filter, Splinter Cell, Desert Storm or Max Payne clone, and its praiseworthy ambitions mean it would seem quite capable of blowing itself a niche in a crowded and hyper-competitive market. Sadly the graphical glitches, the rocky frame rate, the simply terrible looping music (you can turn it down, but stupidly the FMV sound gets turned down too - will developers ever learn to thoroughly test sound...
  • Pros: Playable, exciting and innovative action…
  • Cons: …Let down by poor graphics and some terrible music. A confusing and unnecessary plot that never really gets explained or resolved.
