I was skeptical about the first few reviews on this console port when it came out last October; I held off playing this great game because of it. There were numerous reports of this title being "broken" and almost unplayable/unfit for PC systems. While it's true that it is just another port of a console-optimized game, I was pleased at how easy it was to play on my computer. The controls did take a little getting used to, but once I got the hang of it I had a blast playing the game! The graphics are crisp and clean, the sound is amazing and the atmosphere is real spooky and lifeless. I love it! My only real complaint is that using the keyboard for a lot of the commands gets a bit tedious; the mouse aiming is a little slow in Aim mode, but not too bad. Overall, I see the game as being very playable and far from "broken."
I did however, encounter a bug when I initially tried to play the game, something that should have been looked at when it was released. After reading some forum threads online, I found that having any kind of gamepad plugged into the system causes the game to crash with a C++ error! Only after I unplugged both of my Logitech USB game controllers, the game ran crash-free! Not a major problem, but there wasn't a whole lot of information on this; I think EA is doing the usual of ignoring the matter. Regardless, the game run great and I am very pleased with it overall. 4/5
the game is a 3rd person meets 1rst person shooter with a doom 3 like experience. the only down fall to this game is its to linier as far as game play, however that game has a kick ass story with a surprise ending leading to a part 2. the graphics are extraordinary mixed with 3d surround. I recommend this game to any one who like a first person shooter and sci-fi mixed.
The graphics, storyline and overall gameplay are very good. I don't really have any dislikes about the game so far. It has proven to be a good buy and I dont regret buying this title. I decided to buy it after seeing a review written about it in "Game Informer" magazine. It got a 7.5 out of 10 which is pretty good. They were right, its a good game for any first person shooter lover.
This game is intense, gloomy, and scary. The controls are really hard to get used to at first. The storyline is good and the graphics are really good too. It reminds me somewhat of the movie Alien. Nonetheless, it's a good game, worth getting or at least trying out.
This game is so much fun, a must buy for anyone. This game is also a fairly scary game, makes you think thice before turning the corner. It is also very original, by havin (well you don't really have too) cutting off the limbs of the enemy, it just does more damage. But don't let thinking the game may to scary or wierd turn you off like me at first, then after watching a review and some gameplay of the the game, i realised how much fun it really is. This game is a brand new IP from EA, so give it a try and you will be pleased, it's the horror title for the future!
This game has great graphics for a horror/survival game. The lighting during game play is exquisite and major points earned for originality for screens, scenes, and interactive holograms. Fear is definitely well brought about in this game.
This game has what every gamer loves - action, adventure, shock, awe, space travel, aliens, even a strange love interest!
I fell that the graphics package and the character mobility were one of its best assests. However, in the game you are forceably pushed to follow a direct path to the ultimate ending, hence very limited free roaming outside of a level of game play.
With all this in mind you can get this game for a great price in the after-market, it's most definitely worth the time.
Great game, equally good reviews all around. Not for those who are easily scared since this game can easily spook you at times. If you can't play Silent Hill, Fatal Frame, F.E.A.R., or other horror survival games, you may be easily scared while playing this one. It's a great game overall though, but not perfect. Easily justifies the candidacy for Game of the Year 08.
Very scary. Graphics are really good. bang on for the mood of the game. in horror type. realism. cool weapons. very gory. only thing was first person view made it harder to see around me. making it extra scary .
Knowing EA for all there great and bad is a must before being able to say anything about this game. This must be one of the most overlooked games thats ever been in my gaming world. If you like the R.E. series (Resident Evil) you'll most-likely love this game.Graphics are amazing, guns are crazy cool with their primary fire and alternative fire modes. If space is your thing (and pissing your pants every 8 minutes), pick this up. If your more into the down-to-earth I would personally pick up R.E.5.! I give this game a 4 out of 5.
