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. Featuring a script co-written by famous author Orson Scott Card, the story, while not the most innovate piece of literature, proved to be interesting enough to keep the average gamer interested.
  • 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.

  • Excerpt: I’m a guy. Therefore, I’m genetically inclined to be keen on futuristic weapons, space travel, funky-looking aliens and pretty much anything else sci-fi related. Now, before you scold me for using a stereotype to draw a sweeping and potentially simple-minded assumption, let me just add that I’ve actually seen a seemingly innocuous “Star Trek vs. Star Wars” argument almost come to blows. So yeah, guys love them some sci-fi.

Game Over Online
27 June 2005
  • 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. Thirty minutes and a dozen or so controller hand-offs later, the two men realize that they have heard very little of what the gentleman giving the presentation has said, as the on screen action...

  • Excerpt: L'ambitieux projet de trilogie qui avait germé dans l'esprit des développeurs de Glyphx arrive finalement chez nous. Malheureusement, comme l'avait laissé craindre la preview, le résultat est bien loin d'être à la hauteur des espérances. Maniabilité hasardeuse et réalisation bancale suffiront à laisser l'amateur de science-fiction sur sa faim.
