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. It could have been longer, it could have been better, but in the end you’re left with an above average and satisfying gaming experience.

Advent Rising

Game Vortex

  • 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. As is usually the case in the game industry, lots of attention means lots of pressure -- which is something Advent Rising was working under, and it shows.

Advent Rising

Gaming Evolution
29 November 2005
  • 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. There have been games in the past that have had problems similar to Advent Rising, but still manage to garner a following. Hopefully, GlyphX will look at the mistakes within this game, and make the second installment, most likely for the Xbox 360, all that much better.

  • Summary: „Advent Rising” hat mir beim Spielen einen Mordsspaß gemacht. So cool wie Überheld Gideon wollte ich schon sein, als ich noch ein Kind war. Und dann dazu die zuckersüße Olivia, was will man mehr? Recht einfach: Eine gescheite Steuerung, die das Xbox-Pad schon bei zig vergleichbaren Spielen bestens ermöglicht hat. Absolut unverständlich, wieso die Entwickler ein so blödes Auto-Aim-System eingebaut haben. Ansonsten gibt es wenig zu meckern.
  • Pros: Geile Zwischensequenzen, Klasse Soundtrack, Charaktere mit Hintergrund
  • Cons: Hakelige Steuerung, Schwache Grafik
