  • Summary: Instead of fixing any of Psycho Circus' problems, or adding some Dreamcast-only levels, the programmers at Tremor have actually removed some key features of the PC version.

  1. 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.

    The second flaw in this game is the exclusion of multiplayer support, and I mean support in any kind.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Alas, KISS Psycho Circus just plain sucks.
  7. 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.

    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. Collapse
