  1. Instead of fixing any of Psycho Circus' problems, adding some Dreamcast-only levels, or even just making the game an exact port of the original, the programmers at Tremor have actually removed some key features of the PC version.
  2. KISS fans will almost certainly feel ripped off by the band's phone-in appearance. However, for those who simply want a game with a high body count, K:PC definitely piles the carnage quite high.

    The second flaw in this game is the exclusion of multiplayer support, and I mean support in any kind.

    It was supposed to be more, and you always feel that when chopping through level after monotonous corridor. It was supposed to be a KISS game, man.
  5. It's blatantly obvious that no-one was willing to put the time and effort in to make this a game worthy of your money.
  6. Alas, KISS Psycho Circus just plain sucks.
  7. Take KISS out of the picture and you have a mildly entertaining shooter that does an adequate job of shooting things up. But if you're a KISS fan expecting lots of face paint and heavy guitar riffs, forget it.
  8. The rock stars featured in this game might still be getting gratitude from female fans, but gamers that buy into "Psycho Circus" are getting screwed with a plain old snow job.
  9. A mindless shoot 'em up in every sense, and doesn't try to conceal that fact. If this type of gameplay appeals to you, give this circus a chance.

    Being a die-hard Kiss fan (yes, I even liked some of their glam-daze releases) I was hopeful. However, besides the astounding body count and Being a die-hard Kiss fan (yes, I even liked some of their glam-daze releases) I was hopeful. However, besides the astounding body count and loose ties to the Macfarlane comic, there was little of interest in this otherwise and frustrating forray into the shooter world. Full Review »
