Excerpt: For the longest time, it seemed that every modern first-person shooter I was playing dealt with World War II. While that's cool, as Nazis are pretty high on my disturbingly lengthy list of people who are fun to gun down, a bit of variety from time to time is good for the soul.
Excerpt: First person shooters have established quite a presence in the gaming world within the last year. Perhaps it's the high that's still in the air from dynasty games like "Halo" or Metroid Prime." At any rate if you take a look around first-person shooters are slowly beginning to line the shelves in force at your local gaming stores.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Snowblind is a fairly solid and entertaining FPS. Much of what it offers (augmentations, stealth and hacking) turns out to be a tad superfluous to the predominantly bullet-riddled gameplay, and can be easily overlooked by players. On PS2, it's certainly one of the better games of its kind (not particularly difficult considering the competition), though TimeSplitters 3 is the better game.
Excerpt: Crystal Dynamic's latest first person shooter Project: Snowblind has a similar futuristic feeling to games such as Deus Ex. You follow the story of 2nd Lieutenant Nathan Frost in his nation's quest to reach peace with itself. Set in Hong Kong in the year 2065, technology has taken a leap ahead, offering you a whole arsenal of weapons and abilities that are unheard of by today's standards.
Conclusion: At its roots is standard FPS fare, but the overall package of well-paced high-adrenaline action, with the added bonus of online multiplayer makes this worth picking up for a lot of PlayStation 2 owners.
Summary: Project Snowblind is a very well put together FPS - it's certainly one of the better ones on PS2. Unfortunately it doesn't really bring anything new to the genre, and the game is a little short in single player. Still, if you're after some FPS action (especially in multiplayer) then this is a game worth checking out.
Summary: So schnell kann es gehen, wenn man der Armee beigetreten ist. In einem Moment ist man mit seinem Squad noch in einer idyllischen Stadt unterwegs und in einem anderen bricht der Krieg aus und wir sind mitten drin. Wir schreiben das Jahr 2065 und es herrscht Bürgerkrieg in Hong Kong. Ein größenwahnsinniger Diktator möchte mit einer Riesen EMP-Bombe die Hauptstädte der Welt zurück in die Steinzeit schicken.
Pros: Gute Atmosphäre, Verschiedene Lösungswege, Coole Fähigkeiten
Summary: "Dostaòte se do role slavného superhrdiny Nathana Frosta, který oplývá vlastnostmi v podobì základního vybavení GPS radaru a navíc i implantáty, jež zvìtšují jeho rychlost, sílu a mnohé další dovednosti. V prùbìhu hry se lze dostat k dalším pìti vzácným vlastnostem jak obraným tak i útoèným. Nathanovi nechybí ani primární a sekundární vrhací zbranì, které mohou nepøítele napøíklad oslepit, zastavit nebo zdržet. Jedná se o brokovnice, raketomety apod.
Conclusion: Un FPS duro per uomini duri. I ragazzi della Crystal Dynamics hanno creato uno sparatutto solido e privo di inutili fronzoli. L’azione è incessante per tutta la durata del gioco, poche pause sono concesse al giocatore. A prima vista il gioco rischia di apparire troppo difficile considerando anche la buona I.A. dei nemici e si capisce subito come andare allo sbaraglio sia la tattica sbagliata.
Pros: Buona realizzazione tecnica;, Molto longevo in multiplayer;
Cons: Discretamente difficile;, Poco longevo in single player;
