  1. What's nice is the character animations, the huge environments, and the overall ominous feel. Great sound effects add to the atmosphere.
  2. You might have to take some time to get adjusted to the sometimes touchy collision detection and the occasional frame rate drop, but these problems aren't drastic enough to completely mar an otherwise solid gaming experience.
  3. Although the graphics are generally good, there is still something unappealingly sluggish about this game. [May 2002, p.85]
  4. Questionable control, average graphics, and shoddy music...in the majority of respects it's a decent affair.
  5. The control felt floaty at first, but it made sense the more I played. Overall, I didn't want to stop playing. [Feb 2002, p.151]
  6. The game's shortness and lame graphics drag down a piece of merchandise that could have been terrific.
  7. Dark Summit may add an element or two, but it doesn't give enough to merit a sequel.

    I liked it, especially how you can take an alternate route in some levels and keep going to previous levels, but the special tricks don't seem to always work. Collapse

    Decent Rent, a lot of untapped potential.
