Summary: Fantastic game, played it first a long time ago on the PC and liked it so much that when I got a PS2 I bought this meaning to play it sometime, but not having time for games back then the whole set up got put in a box in the loft.
Summary: I had this originally when it first came out for the Xbox. Now I'm back into retro I purchased a ps2 and bought this. Didn't expect it to look good at all on my hdtv, but was amazed how sharp it looks and it hasn't aged much at all.
Excerpt: The Thing the game is as weak as it is dull. The film of the same name took place in the Antartic with a claustrophobic sense of tension as the survivors ardently try to discover who is actually infected, and the constant blizzards and snowy sets were used to excellent effect to ramp up the tension.
Summary: I loved this game, I didn't see the Movie so had no preconceived notions of what it would be like. The reviews it got were "Bad"...it seemed that no one had a good thing to say about it, so I have no idea why I purchased it, as I usually follow the masses in their opinions on the games.
Excerpt: When Extermination was released on PS2, it drew many comparisons to the movie The Thing. But before we start comparing the game of The Thing to Extermination here's a quick summary of the film for the uninitiated: a U.F.O. lands near two Antarctic research bases.
Summary: Man, I'll just categorize here... The good: - If you are a fan of the movie, you will find yourself saying "Awesome!" a few times during the game. It really follows the mood of the movie. It just has this "cool" feel to it that I haven't experienced in other games before.
Summary: This game could have easily been as good as any Resident Evil, but didn't make it. Those who have made this game didn't understand what makes Resident Evil ... Resident Evil. It is too bad, since I like John Carpenter's The Thing. The graphics are like most PC games, not that great.
Excerpt: If you are like me and enjoy unwinding by shooting holes in pretty much anything that moves then this game is worth considering, as Blake you're responible for gaining the trust of your fellow soldiers/rescuers and keeping them from cracking up by supplying them with guns, ammo and adreniline...
Excerpt: Twenty years after the movie, technology has advanced and now you're in the starring role, but who can you trust? Taking control of Captain Blake, you are sent to investigate the Antartic Bases featured in the movie and clear up any Thing that you may find.
