  1. The sound effects and gloriously cheesy lounge music help to complete a decent experience. The game does, however, suffer from a strict linear style, which can make it a little predictable at times. Still, Sydney Bristow remains a nicely realised gaming character with a winning personality.
  2. Better than "Dark Angel" but not nearly as good as "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," the TV-to-video-game treatment of Alias amounts to a fairly basic stealth-action title that's likely to appeal mainly to fans of the show and/or Jennifer Garner's digitized bum.

    Although this game adaptation's take-down-the-arch-criminal plot is trite, the heroine looks so much like Garner - skintight guises and all - that we're ready to back her on recon missions and vicious fire-fights from Saudi Arabia to Hong Kong. [Feb 2004, p.32]
  4. Alias is loaded with fantastic cut scenes and great voiceovers. Too bad the playing the game is not nearly as brilliant.
  5. Shoddy enemy A.I. Sometimes you can be standing 20 feet in front of a guard in a well-lit room and remain invisible to him, while other times you may be detected from 50 feet or more while crouching in a dark corner. [Sept 2004, p.60]
  6. Remarkably boring, and even diehard fans of the series are probably better off without it.
  7. There are still too many unpolished aspects and simply not enough challenge to make the game appealing to anyone outside of the most devout Alias audience.
  8. It's just not very good...Missions are hamstrung by some sloppy ideas and a noticeable lack of playtesting.
  9. Aside from the TV tie-in, there is nothing in Alias to recommend it over other games of its type. [Sept 2004, p.69]

    Okay, so it has voice overs from the actual actors, the graphics are pretty good, and Syd and Dixon look like the actual actors (Jack, Marshall, and Vaughn, however, didn't fair so well. This is the only good I can really say of the game (PC at least). The control set-up is absoulutely horrible, the controls don't always work like they should, and the cameras are attrocious! Fighting is way to simple. This game would be great if their had been more effort put into the game other than the look of the game. Only fans of the show will care for this game, and fans who are serious gamers ("evercrack" players don't apply) are only playing it out of loyalty to the show. Full Review »
