Excerpt: I waited for this game for quite a while, but I absolutely refuse to begin this review in the same manner as every other review Iíve ever read for it. They all go along about the same thing: this game was announced before the PS2 was even announced, was in development for quite some time, blah blah blah. Yeah, it took a while to get here. And the end result wasnít as good as expected. Thatís the way it goes sometimes.
Excerpt: Run Like Hell 's graphics are exactly what you'd picture in a dark and dismal spacecraft environment. The entire game takes place on a ship that houses scientists and military alike, and as such, the areas are just what you'd imagine... at first. As you run through the craft and explore, you'll come across nice touches like arcade games in the recreation room (playable, of course!), art work on the walls, etc. There's some nice attention to detail here.
Excerpt: I'm a big fan of spooky sci-fi flicks like the Alien films, and long for the day when the tension, artistic vision and dramatic contexts of such films can successfully merge with the interactive nature of videogames. Survival-horror is still a young genre by industry standards, so it'll be fascinating to see what directions it can go in the near future ( Doom III comes to mind).
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: RLH is a nice addition to the next generation consoles horror library. It isn't amazing but will have you hooked for the duration of the game. It's worth a buy if you are really into the survival horror genre - but for anyone else this is definitely worth renting.
Excerpt: Game Freaks 365 is usually kind to mediocre titles, such as Run Like Hell and we would like to continue our tradition. RLH (Run Like Hell) offers detailed graphics and textures, along with a realistic presentation of the gaming world. Remarkably, I thought of RLH as a cheap version of Halo, without the colorful characters, multiple weapons, and multiple vehicles. Fortunately it does keep you entertained and asking for more.
Excerpt: It’s been said that in space, no one can hear you scream. Theoretically, this is because there is no air in the perfect vacuum that is space -- ergo, no possibility for sound to travel and therefore, no scream. However, as far as science fiction TV shows, movies and video games are concerned, everyone can hear you scream, especially if there are large, bloodthirsty aliens tearing after you and everyone you know.
