Review – Advent Rising

  • Conclusion: I bought this game last night at a Blockbuster for $7. In the hour or so I got into it, I have to say its pretty cool. But there are just so many bugs in this game. Obviously Majesco turned into an asshat and demanded that the game go out before it was finished.

  • Conclusion: You have two weapon slots at a time. You can have two guns, two powers or one gun and one power slotted at any given time. In order to switch between powers, you just click the thumb stick and map the power to either hand (kind of like the Deus Ex inventory interface).

  • Conclusion: I know I wrote this game off after reading the reviews, but now it doesn’t seem half bad. Can any power be used at any time, like Psi-Ops, or do you have to access a menu? Does the game use the old 2 weapon slots setup or can you carry a more robust arsenal?

  • Conclusion: I’m sorry, but looking at the space-time ripple effect, all I can think of is a screen-saver.

  • Conclusion: This game actually sounds interesting, based on your review. Has anyone else played this so I know that Tony isn’t a crazy Orson Scott Card fanboy before I delve into developing my ripoff Jedi powers?

  • Summary: This is a great game - the music is very good, the voice acting above the norm and, although it rips off lots of others, the story's good too. I was a bit sceptical about this due to the fact I couldn't remember it coming out, and the bad reviews it got on some game-review websites; Its true, * the...

  • Summary: Avent rising is incredible! in the reviews that you may have read, it gets low scores because the graphics may not be as good as some other games, but the special effects, among other things, are more than enough to redeem it.
