Summary: Well done on producing a true classic game. Great action/ storyline and atmosphere. This should be a leeson to all other game developers. As someone has already mentioned you are on a mission throighout the game and you know exactly what you are "trying" to complete at all times. The cut scenes we brilliant. Just superbly put together right from the off. I might play it again. Took me about 5 weeks to complete. Pretty difficult in some parts.
Summary: I was so angry when I completed this game. It was THE best game I've ever played. Maybe it was just me an old time horror fan but this game had everything: 1) GREAT storyline. They got the balance JUST right. No going around killing "things" for the sake of it. You are on a mission and you know exactly what you are doing all the time. Great sub plots all gel into one big "movie" 2) Atmosphere. Pheww.....What's that running over there?
Summary: This is a great game. You already know the script so I won't repeat it all. It's a great addition to the 1982 film and plays very much in the style of a movie. The graphics are great, the effects are effective (as they would be) and the game play is excellent. The most unique aspect of the game is the trust meter and the constant danger that one of your team may be infected.
Summary: What a game! The main aim of the game is to prevent disaster and the spreading of a shape-shifting alien that hunts down humans. All the alien can think of is to kill and spread such a Virus. Throughout the game you are faced with aliens of all descriptions. The screams and their movements are realistic and exciting. As soon as they see you they charge towards you in effort to destroy you, until you pull out your flamethrower.
Summary: I got this game at Xmas along with Splinter Cell. Splinter Cell has frankly been a chore to play compared to The Thing; sessions on The Thing that I'd planned to be half an hour often ended three hours later. It took me about 3 weeks to complete and admittedly could have been longer. One of its strongest features is atmosphere.
