Another decent shooter

  • Summary: Pariah is a game for people who enjoy decent shooters. the upgeadable weapons are a good addition to this game but the only problem is the vehicles. They are so fragile for heavily armored and equiped. Also the story is hard to understand.I am almost finished with the game but i dont understand what you are fighting for. The graphics are ok but are not pushed to the limit. The cut scenes look blurry and is just embarrising.

  • Conclusion: Graphics The graphics arent bad, but being used to playing 360 games, there are a noticeable amount of jagged edges on screen. Character models are good, and the gun models arent bad either. Blood effects are nice, and the grenade effect is quite impressive. Parts of the environment are destructable, and it looks good when those parts are....destructed.

I like it

  • Summary: Okay, so this is not the greatest of games but there is something interesting and different about it. The graphics are still pretty good, and the old Xbox I bought plays it without any slowdown. There is plenty of action, and excitement too. The thing I really like about this game, however, is the story. It's a kind of weird sci-fi story, something akin to Dune.

  • Excerpt: In Pariah you play as Jack Mason, a burned-out doctor who has no will to live, that is, until he nearly gets killed in a transport ship crash. Now he and his infected patient (the mysterious and beautiful Karina) are left high and dry smack bang in the middle of the most vicious prison sectors of a wasteland planet called 'Earth'.
  • Pros: great story, a fantastic map maker .
  • Cons: it's just too short .

Passable 'Halo' wannabe

  • Summary: On first playing this game it seems that no expense has been speared on trying to make Pariah 'Halo 2'. And after a fair few hours of playing the game I've realized that is exactly what it is! This game copies 'Halo' so completely that it's cringeworthy. And unfortunately, although it looks like a lot of time and money has been spent of the development of Pariah, it is quite soulless and flawed. The graphics are fairly good, but the Xbox seems to struggle a little.

  • Summary: If you are a hardened gamer, having come up through the ages of Wolfenstein 3D, Doom, R.O.T.T. and on to gems such as Halo etc... Then you understand gameplay and the advances made in the industry with regards to A.I. texture mapping and lighting. That said, Pariah was a HUGE dissapointment dispite some nifty graphics, but my fears were soon confirmed upon the game loading up. After seeing slightly more than 1 developer responsible for the game i became uneasy.

Acceptable but overrated

Owen Adams "illogicology", amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: Pariah suffers from a consistent flaw in the games industry hype machine, that is, any game with a relatively interesting concept and nice design becomes greatly hyped until the point that it is being sold as a game far beyond its merits. Pariah is a playable, acceptable first-person shooter with some interesting weapons and an ok plot. The graphics are passable but nothing amazing and the level design is ok but occasionally confusing.

OK......... I guess

  • Summary: Pariah is a decent game with good graphics and a long lifespan. Although the weird thing is the guns are huge. Even the the machine gun is massive, and you always get the feeling that your character isnt strong enough to hold the gun. Overall this is a average but playable game.

Such promise but no delivery

M. Royce "matroycem", amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: I brought this game after hearing a review on the Tele. They said that they only played a preview copy but some of the aspects of the game left them with a lot of hope for a challenger for Halo. On first playing the game the control system felt smooth and easily identifiable. The graphics where tidy, no real visible faults until we introduced a second player into the game for co-op play.
