  1. One of the most creative games to come along in quite a while, and with a bang-up story to boot. [Nov 2004, p.129]
  2. Fantastic little touches abound, adding up to a firmly cohesive, engagingly structured, marvelously imagined setting to explore. [Oct 2004, p.67]
  3. A gaming experience that's hard to describe; it's like going to your favourite band's concert, seeing them live and coming out gob-smacked - you know that you've enjoyed it and you loved every minute of it but you're stuck for words on how to convey the experience.

    An fantastic game that gives you an awesome selection of psychic powers and guns for you to use. The story alone makes this worth picking up, and the excellent gameplay makes this a must play title. And the game allows you to play it the way you want to. You can blow through the enemies with your psychic powers and guns, or you can sneak your way past enemies without them knowing you were even there. The controls are also fantastic and tight, although the lock on system is sometimes a tad annoying locking on to items scattered around and not your enemies, but those problems are few and far between. An engrossing plot will have you dying to see every new cutscene. Some of the voice acting is kind of cheesy/bad, but that doesn't detract from the story at all. This is a must play game that's so fantastic it needs to be experienced by any and all gamers. Full Review »

    Second Sight is one of the true overlooked gems of the most recent console generation. An innovative, realistic targeting system was implemented alongside useful, diverse psychic powers. All of this is used to tell one of the best, most coherently-told stories ever to grace a videogame. When thinking about the future of games as a storytelling medium, this is the game that comes to mind for me. A true gem. Full Review »
