Mark E Posted October 22, 2004 Report Share Posted October 22, 2004 You want to talk about games that were kind of here and then just died? I don't recall anybody on the forum even talking about this beyond a mention I made in a thread way back when. Anyway, EB has this on sale for $20 Yankee and $30 Canuck (which I got at $22 thanks to SSX Tricky :tu:) and I grabbed it to give it a whirl. Decent game so far. I haven't played it that much, just getting used to the controls and the camera (I'm still debating how much I will end up liking this camera, it has wrestle-with-me elements I don't much care for). I didn't get to play Psi-Ops, so this is my first encounter with psychic powers but it's a lot of fun. I love being able to lift and toss crap across the rooms. The story is what I really like though. It's told in parallel, with the character waking up in his current situation and then flashing back at times to a mission he was involved in six months ago. This was the way they implemented the training level and it was one of the more well-integrated training levels I've seen for a while. Anyway, I rescued a copy and I've been pleased, especially at the price point. The most interactive in-game computers I've messed about with for a while. The one at the opening to the third 'act' has a fantasticly creepy little bit of drama going on if you mess about with the desktop for a bit. Still dubious about the camera (and the fact that the main character won't shut up at times, though he seems to be calming down now that I'm passing the intro levels). Did anybody else give this a whirl? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
