Advent Rising Review

IGN Entertainment
9 February 2008
  • 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: All in all, Advent Rising is a great game that got some unwarranted bad reviews . If you can find it cheap or for rent, I’d highly recommend it.

Gaming Evolution

  • 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 it’s just a rental.

Game Over Online
26 February 2006
  • 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.

The Armchair Empire
7 February 2006
  • 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.

Advent Rising

Into Liquid Sky
18 December 2005
  • 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: The game clearly wants to feel like an interactive movie, and this is an idea that looks good on paper, but is really hard to get right in practice.
