  • Summary: The game is an action-packed first-person shooter with true-to-life physics for the PC, which takes advantage of the AGEIA PhysX processor to produce realistic cloth, fluid and scattered debris effects. Set in a futuristic, industrial war-torn atmosphere, CellFactor: Revolution featuresThe game is an action-packed first-person shooter with true-to-life physics for the PC, which takes advantage of the AGEIA PhysX processor to produce realistic cloth, fluid and scattered debris effects. Set in a futuristic, industrial war-torn atmosphere, CellFactor: Revolution features three unique characters, two that possess mind-control combat abilities. In the story campaign mode, players take one of three unique characters, Black Ops, Bishop and Guardian, through industrial settings in the near future on Earth. After a series of cataclysmic events, the planet is now dominated by a superpower dedicated only to the advancement of technology – no matter what the human cost. This technology forms the basis of a cybernetic-enhanced humanoid army, whose telekinetic powers are used to maintain relative order across the planet. A scattered human resistance fights for one last shred of freedom, tapping into psychic abilities in an attempt to conquer what appears to be an invincible enemy. The gamer can play as characters from both sides of this war. Players can manipulate a massive amount of objects simultaneously, control vehicles and fight against AI-controlled opponents or challenge friends to a match in the networked gameplay modes. Playable via a LAN connection, up to eight gamers and eight CPU bots can populate the futuristic setting for massive combat action. In addition, the multiplayer modes – death match, team death match, assault and combat – are playable with one human and up to eight AI-controlled characters. [Artificial Studios] Expand

  1. The controls require some getting used to, but the game's biggest problem comes from the fact that it only has LAN multiplayer, and lacks any kind of online player match-up capabilities.
  2. CellFactor is best thought of as an intriguing tech demo. It is interesting to watch your screen become cluttered with dozens of boxes, pipes, and miscellaneous junk, and know that your PhysX card is making the spectacle possible, but is it fun to play? Let's just say that you will love it … if your video game collection consists solely of free games.

    Go ahead and download it just for fun, but don't expect any kind of lasting entertainment, and don't bother with the PhysX upgrade specifically for Cell Factor.
  4. It's distractingly unrealistic rather than joyously cartoonish. [July 2007, p.89]
  5. The finished game doesn't live up to expectations. [Sept 2007, p.64]
  6. Basically it's not a game, it's still just a tech demo, and a pretty unsuccessful one at that. [July 2007, p.64]

    Decent if you have a PhysX, but not really commercial game quality.(I wouldn't pay for it) Its kind of boring, not really worth buying a Decent if you have a PhysX, but not really commercial game quality.(I wouldn't pay for it) Its kind of boring, not really worth buying a PhysX for it. Hopefully Warmonger and UT2007 will make better use of the PhysX. Expand

    Would not run well on my system. Only two maps are available without an ageia physx card. No internet play, feels like a tech demo.

It's a pretty hardware intensive game, and the physics are often unbelievable (not in a good way). Overall there are 5 levels (3 of which you'll need to tweak with the config files to access), and maybe 1.5-2hrs of gameplay. Probably not worth the 850mb d/l. Expand

    It's a gimic. That is all, you can't play the full game unless you buy a PPU card. Honestly, I think it is a sign to developers It's a gimic. That is all, you can't play the full game unless you buy a PPU card. Honestly, I think it is a sign to developers that games that take full advantage of ageia physx will leave the vast majority of gamers without these gimmicky 150 cards. I honestly believe that more time should be spent advancing current hardware/software then coming up with some more proprietary junk to put in my computer. To boot, the game is boring. Expand
