Conclusion: Advent Rising quite simply, is a very good action game that lacks the polish needed to be considered a “must-have” title. Aside from the many flaws, this is a game that has enough flair to keep you playing through to the end.
Conclusion: A very compelling storyline, with lots of potential, but unfortunately dampened by a bad framerate and one too many glitches. Overall, it is definitely worth the play, even if itâ€™s just a rental.
Excerpt: Advent Rising is a game that has gained a lot of attention since it was first announced a few years ago, most notably since the game's narrative was being penned by Orson Scott Card, best known for the “Ender” series.
Excerpt: It was a serene moment. A few E3s ago, two men from a gaming magazine were invited to see a "behind closed doors" presentation of an upcoming sci-fi title for the Xbox. It had been written by renowned science fiction author Orson Scott Card and was under "feverish" development.
Conclusion: game for the PC and Xbox. Throughout the universe humans are thought to be almost a myth as no one has actually seen or met one of their race, but most civilizations believe that upon their return they will unite the universe and ring in a new age.
Excerpt: There was obviously a lot of ambition placed behind Advent Rising . Publisher Majesco worked hard to promote the game, even going so far as to put the game trailer in theaters and attach a contest to the game. Even with all of that, the game stumbled under it's own ambition.
Pros: Nice sci-fi theme, Voice acting really sells a decent script, Lots of gun and power-basd action
Cons: Graphics are inconsistent at best, Framerate can give you whiplash, Flick targeting conflicts with camera control
Excerpt: Advent Rising is a title I have been waiting on for the past several years. Majesco has been shown off this title in their E3 booth for multiple years and finally-after the longest wait-the game shipped to retailers.
