Overall: What happens when you mix Halo 2 and DOOM 3 with some Breakdown? Area 51. In this game you play a Spec Ops guy sent to find a disturbance in the mysterious Area 51. Once inside you find a virus that has mutated people to zombie-esk aliens. It doesnt take long till the main character to get infected. As the infection spreads, Cole (the main character), struggles between human and alien form. As Cole transforms, something contacts him, and tells him there's a cure...
Gameplay: Simple, Left analog is move, right is aim, left trigger is secondary fire, right is regular, Y is switch, A is jump, X is action, B is gernade, left analog click is crouch, right is melee. Yea sounds stupid, but later in the game you'll love it. The game is scary at times, with zombies popping out and soldiers shooting. Lots of weapons here, Pistol, Assault rifle (auto duel weild), Shotgun (auto duel weild), Plasma Rifle (the shots stick then go BOOM! they shoot at 3 shot bursts), and the BBG (works like a BFG in doom 3, u shoot it and it electricutes everything around.. This game is amazing when it starts, and falls short at the end..
Graphics: Amazing, the 4 good quality cutscenes (8 min long. each.) Lots of in game cutscenes though, in the middle especially. Awsome explosions, in alien form, bad guys stick out. They are a flourescent red, it looks like they glow.
Sound: BOOM! is that good enough? With voices like David Decomvy and Marlin Manson. Where can this game go wrong. OK lots of places... but did it? NO.
Suggestions: WHY??? Such amazing build up on story, then at the end... no more infection? C'mon guys... In the first few levels this game is BETTER than HALO 2(yes i did just say that.) But at the end... the usual Xfiles ending. The whole game up until the end of the middle seemed Eerie in a scense that I actually said "Damn, this can be true" - then at the end its too far fetched. BTW i love the BBG, and the plasma rifle.
