  • 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.

  • 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 Thing

  • 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 Thing (Xbox)

  • Summary: After watching the John Carpenter version of The Thing back in the good old 1980's I was amazed at how the story unwinds and how the characters changed once the first person becomes affected. After watching the trailer for the game almost a year ago I couldn't wait until the game was released.

Put your fire proof undies on

  • Summary: The Thing takes survival horror games and turns the genre on it's head with the excellent Trust and Confidence systems. Weapons are well balanced and the atmosphere gives you a real sense that death could be around the next corner or even inside your team mate!

Worth the cash?

  • Summary: As a big fan of the movie, I have been licking my lips in aticipation for the game. At first I found it a bit dissapointing. But the longer I played, the more I began to enjoy it. My one major gripe is that on occasions I gave someone a blood test, which pronounced him human.

  • Summary: The Thing was and is one of the most atmospheric horror movies created. When I heard John Carpenter, the director, was involved in the development of the game I thought "great"! On first boot I was just a tad dissapointed with the graphics, but I HAD just got Resi Evil for the cube!
