Good ideas, so-so execution

T. Sparks, Amazon

  • Summary: I thought long and hard before I picked up "Lifeline." I had read both good and bad reviews, but ultimately, my gluttony for new technology won out, and I bought the game and a PS2 headset. The main character, Rio, understands basic commands easily enough. That is, she will go to the save point, certain rooms, run and walk with no problems. The main problems emerge when she has to look at an object or interact with an object. For example: "Pick up the paper.

communication is the only folly

T. Pelekanis, Amazon

  • Summary: It seems like the only thing I found issues with this game was the communication to the character in game, sometimes when you would say things even if its what the game is supposed to understand she wouldn't get it, The game could get 4/5 if when you speak to her she would understand you, video games are still in early stages to be able to understand each individual, and such is crucial to the game if you need a headset to play, other than that if your voice is clear and...

Good game, little problems

  • Summary: Lifeline is like those old text based games like Zork mixed with a point-and-click games you find on PC's. I liked the whole locked up in a space station full of aliens scenirio and the whole mystery behind it was surprising. I know that the voice recognition can be bad at times and sometimes it can get annoying. For instance, I wanted Rio to look at a case on a dresser but she thought I was referring to the dresser that it was on.

Either Rio is stupid or I am

  • Summary: Ok, I won't say this game is absolutely good or absolutely bad. It is just that the voice recognition is not that profound. What you say has to be right on for Rio to check it. For example I came across a table and asked her to check the papers. All she said was,"there are lots of paper which one?" It had to be broken down to words like newspaper or report for her to react. Getting her to do things is not that easy. Some objects look like something else.

Great Potential - Poor Implementation

  • Summary: Lifeline is a voice controlled video game for the PS2. You help a waitress investigate a space station, killing aliens and rescuing guests. For most Playstation 2 users, this is the first time they'll need to buy a microphone/headset. While many XBox games (especially XBox Live) use a microphone extensively, few PS2 games have taken this step. On first glance this seems a REALLY cool idea. You "are" a male in the game.

HELP ME!!!!! " I am Running!"

boogalopikmin, Amazon

  • Summary: Yeah thats how this game goes. The most frustrating thing I have ever played. "Go to the save point." "Go to the Desk? OK" "No GO TO THE SAVE POINT!!!!" "Leave the room? You got it." "No go to the Save POINT!!!!!!" "I am walking" But I don't stop playing even though I've ripped out half my hair. Its just that I've never played anything like this and thats kinda exciting.
