  • Summary: Fantastic game; it's innovative, original and follows the film so well. Graphics are low res due to its age but the gameplay and script are awesome!

Fantastic

  • Summary: Great game, but I have one gripe: The blood test sometimes goofs up. I swear I did it and a few seconds later the guy changed. Other than that, great game.

Well worth playing, and so cheap!

  • 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.

The Thing

Jordan Brown, amazon.co.uk

  • 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.

Great game

  • 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.
