  1. Video games are meant to be entertainment, but I found Body Harvest to be more of an effort in patience than anything else. Although Midway should be commended for trying to create a hybrid RPG/shooter game, the ultimate result is somewhat boring.
  2. Yet another delightful and highly original game from DMA Design. If you're looking for a long and challenging game, or a more adult-oriented title, Body Harvest fits the bill.
  3. Playing DMA Design's Body Harvest is like taking the lead role in a BBC sci-fi TV series. The visuals may not be revolutionary, and the story may be a bit cheesy, but there's something unmistakably charming about the whole thing.
  4. Body Harvest ended up being a highly entertaining game and one that I would definitely recommend. Who knows, you might just discover that it is gameplay and not graphics that make a good game after all.

Great b-movie atmosphere which the graphics suit. Love the atmospheric music, sparse yet effective, it creates a somber mood rather than an action one. The 3D landscape , target system and ability to commandeer vehicles were was ahead if it's time. Its easy to see how it paved the way for GTA3 on the PS2 three years later.
    Note: Body Harvest was developed by DMA Design who changed their name to Rockstar North in 2001.

Body Harvest is the same as GTA only more 3D camera behind the character , killing innocent and the police , all GTA 1 is only that because of GTA 3 launch in 2001 and this is 1998 this was what was most in addition to the first games of the GTA franchise, and used all the power of the Nintendo 64 console.

I played this game so much as a child, it kept me entertained for many hours. To be serious, the game hasn't aged as well as some other games. The games difficulty is surprisingly high (considering I had to use cheats to beat the game). While it's not cheap difficulty, it still puts it down to a 9. Even with that, this is one of the best games of all time. Full Review »
