  1. P.N. 03 won't keep anyone interested for more than a couple of hours. The longer you continue to enjoy the game after that is directly proportional to the time you spent watching reality TV shows.
  2. Feels like it's just a block of jello. It could have been molded into something new, but instead, Capcom just left it as is, a block. It's uninspired, generic, and there is no reason to play it.
  3. Excitement wears thin when you realize you're fighting the same enemies and running down the same corridors over and over. There's not even a real story to cling to, so players are left with little more than a few hours of tedious button mashing. [Oct 2003, p.163]

    There's no sense of continuity since you have to keep stopping and starting. And where are the puzzles or something other to do besides shooting at hard-to-see robots?

    Tries to capture the excitement and intensity of old-school 2D shooters, but the end product is just a boring hodgepodge of gaming cliches. [Oct 2003, p.49]
  6. Boring and repetitive... The best part of the game is when Vanessa flaunts her futuristic T&A as the credits roll. That's right, it's more fun than playing the game. [Oct 2003, p.73]

    You either get it or you don't. If you're expecting something that handles and feels like all those generic 3rd person ps2 games You either get it or you don't. If you're expecting something that handles and feels like all those generic 3rd person ps2 games out there, you'll feel v constricted and agree with the 40 ratings. If you're up for timing & sequences of moves and totally unique handing, you'll love it like I did. Full Review »

    This game coulda been good but it felt incomplete. Combat was fun but repetitive.
