Summary: this game i had very high hopes for, i love clive barkers work both book and on the silver screen, but unfortunately this game does not transition like it should. the games controls are horrid, the AI is just moronic, enemies will stand out in the middle of nowhere, the concept of the game is interesting but sadly the gameplay shuts the door on enjoying the story for what it is, voice acting isnt bad, but it is not good either.
Summary: This Game is definitely not a game that i would recommend. The graphics are horrible and its completely outdated. The achievements are impossible, and the game itself is just terrible. Save your money, don't buy it. But if you really want to get the achievements, than buy the game for like 3 or 5 bucks. Good luck.
Summary: This game is a big"could have been" and turned to be a great piece of... boring "action" (if I may use that word). I'm a huge fan of Clive Barkers' work, his books, stories (like the one in the game) are amazing, wonderful. But, even with a great story, the game is really poor. The gameplay is boring, with no challenge and no excitement. You don't get scared, you don't feel any adrenaline , the display of some actions is really bad, the controls are complicated.
Summary: Looking back, I've got to to say that I have yet to find any game developed or published under the 'Codemasters' logo that I've truly enjoyed. I've come across quite a few and I've tried to give them the benefit of the doubt, picking up and playing through most of them. The end result for pretty much all of them left me with the feeling I get when I take a bite of one of those fluffy French pastries with the powdered sugar on top; sort of sweet but filled with nothing...
Summary: i bought the game cuz it was a first person shooter and a friend told me it was pretty good but i personally thought it was a terible game the colition is weak you shoot the guy and he should act like hes gettin shot if a shooter doesnt have good colition its atomaticly a bad game that is a very important part of a fps
Conclusion: This is one of those games that had little fanfare on its release. You'll see it on the shelf from time to time, you'll look at the grisly pictures on the back... and then you'll put it back down again. And certainly at the full RRP, you were right to do so.
Conclusion: This is a love it or hate it game. Many people have thoroughly enjoyed it all the way through. Others, Like me, have not enjoyed it at all. I found it to be Bland, Repetitive, Dull, Predictable and it uses some terrible gameplay mechanics and the quick time events are frustrating unnecessary and annoying. For the people that enjoyed it, I guess many will be Fans of the storyline especially Clive Barker fans.
Excerpt: "..."wow, a game designed by Clive Barker, this should be good". Well launch day for this game came around and I received my copy and was looking for ward to playing it. Here are my thoughts and opinions: Storyline Something strange is happening in the Middle East, you are part of a crack supernatural commando unit sent in to see what the disturbance is and deal with it. Its that simple. For a game by Clive Barker you would expect a 'little' bit more ...
Pros: Character models look nice
Cons: Gameplay, level design, boredom, single player only
