  • Summary: Love the film, and couldn't wait to get stuck into the game. The intro gets the alarms bells ringing straight away with jerky graphics. Awkard controls - which just make it frustrating from the off. Complete lack of imagination, no atmosphere due to total silence, could have had howling wind at least. When your man finds a tape recorder in which John McCready speaks, they didn't even use the original voice - sounds cheap.

Unplayable game

  • Summary: I wanted to like this game so much, but it has contrived to infuriate me. The controls are dreadful and it is impossible to use half the firing actions on the game, which means you consistently get killed. There is a poor logic in the use of interactive controls and a complete lack of intuition in game play. I feel totally ripped off by this game. Good points - it looks nice, but there are more atmospheric games. But little else. Steer clear.
