arguably the best game i ever bought

  • Summary: When i played this game the graphics didn't really appeal to me. It looked like 90's level graphics in a 2005 game. But after playing it the storyline grows on you. You actually get drawn into the game and want more. This is a great game for anyone to play. If it's not on here find it on ebay, amazon, or anywhere you can and play it.

A REAL XBOX GAME THAT DESERVED MORE

  • Summary: I really don't know how anyone could say that this game wasn't good. I just finished playing it and it holds up really well. You get to fly a space ship into a docking bay at a space station. Even better, there are so many shades of Mass Effect and Star Wars in this game. The story is gripping and is nothing like the 1st Halo. It can stand on it's own. And it is deeper than you think. The game was suppose to be a trilogy but I guess we finally got our sci-fi fix with ME.

The best game on the original xbox.

  • Summary: I truly loved this game. Your the last human and you go to teach the aliens that destroyed the human race that they missed one. The powers are cool but the story hooked me for sure. The guns are ok but you get to a point that guns really are useless when you are super powered badass. Hope the make another in the recent future!!!!!

Could have been a great game.

  • Summary: Advent Rising was very promising. It had an awesome story, sweet graphics (at the time), and an amazing musical score. The game blended 3rd-person shooting and supernatural powers, sounds cool right? Unfortunately the game mechanics were kind of glitchy. Moving around in the game wasn't very fluid and the aiming system involve too many buttons. Advent Rising could have been a great game.

  • Summary: in the game you fight aliens that destroyed the earth. your character has like star wars powers and you use them to destroy the bad aliens and find your place in the universe. the game is perfect for fighters but you will hate the ending.

  • Summary: I know this is quite late but I still have this game since the day it came out. I will go buy a referbished xbox just to play it again. Even though the xbox game graphics cant comapare to 360 the storyline and gameplay of this game is overall amazing. I really love this game. It would have to be my best game of all time.

A Great Sci-Fi Game

  • Summary: I played this game once at my friends house and was intrigued. So i embarked on an insane quest to find it. Luckily one of the local gamestops had it. My first thought was at the first cutscene, which i might add is beautiful as are all the large ones and a good portion of the smaller ones.

Good all around game, but short

  • Summary: The game was excelent, the fighting could be a little bit better, but overall good game. I bought at full price, which i would not recomend, but at a low cheap price the game is worth it. However somewhat short, but worth playing again on harder setting once you beat it.

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. It really could have been something special if everything was fixed.

Review – Advent Rising

  • 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).  It’s really easy to use and you can swap stuff out in a half-a-second’s time.  Each power and weapon has a secondary fire that you unlock by using the power/weapon and levelling it up.
