  • Summary: Well the game is a good add to the thing franchise, it gives you more about the story beyond, the atmosfere its awesome, well made, the graphics are ok, not the best graphics of the system but does the job very well. The team system of the game, the trust mechanics etc are very well made.

The thing-A title as vague as the game itself

  • 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.
  • Pros: Stays faithful to the film (a little)
  • Cons: Poor combat sytem, not scary

  • 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.
  • Pros: Great Game
  • Cons: not sure

  • 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...
  • Pros: More than just head on shoot em up
  • Cons: two button operation to shoot !
