Didn't live up to potential

Amazon
7 July 2004
  • 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.

Faulty piece of ...

  • Summary: I rented the Thing thinking it would be awesome. I liked it first time. Then i saw the flaw. It was like a ... Jackie Chan movie. The characters mouths would move but nothing would come out.

THE THING is nothing more than an assimilation!

Amazon
12 July 2003
  • Summary: I love the movie The Thing. Hey, it's not high art and I realize that, but what it does it does well. The game on the other hand is nothing more than a...repackaging of other games. Like The Thing itself, this game has simply assimilated games like Epidemic, etc.

Rent It

  • Summary: I don't own very many games. I could say it's because I'm very selective, but really it's because I don't have much money. Because of that I try to select games that have alot of replay value. Games that you can play and beat, then continue playing without just rehashing the same thing.

I was expecting more..

  • Summary: I loved the film. If your a true horror fan you'll know the orignal thing was made in the 50's. As a kid I truly loved it. It was the first time I seen a horror film where it was impossible (almost impossible) to kill the monster. I believe they killed the thing with electrcity in the first one.

  • Summary: I'm gonna get right to the point with this one. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS PIECE OF JUNK! The plot is horrible, the gameplay is immensely dull and the graphics are 2nd rate at best. This game makes a mockery of th John Carpenter classic.

What is going on????

Amazon
6 March 2003
  • Summary: I CAN'T BELIEVE I JUST BEAT THE GAME!!!! I'M BACK TO TELL YOU THAT THIS GAME IS SO UPSETTING ON SO MANY LEVELS. IT IS WAY TO HARD FOR THE AVERAGE GAMER AND THE ENDING IS TERRIBLE COMPARED TO DEVIL MAY CRY, VICE CITY, THE GETAWAY, MOH, EVEN HITMAN 2 HAD A BETTER PAYOFF AT THE END!!!
