    A tedious, tasteless mess. [Aug 2005, p.76]

    Ends up feeling like it’s been built by PC game developers obsessed with quick saves. There’s absolutely no creative latitude; it’s a case of remembering where enemies appear and getting them before they get you. [May 2005, p.86]

    I'm enjoying it. It's still relitively new, but it is entertaining, and less than 40 bucks always works. It's no Operation I'm enjoying it.

    I have not played this game, so I do not know if it is good or not. But I did install it, and when it rebooted my computer for me, my WindowsI have not played this game, so I do not know if it is good or not. But I did install it, and when it rebooted my computer for me, my Windows login profile WAS DELETED! Even though my profile was gone, I tried to launch the game and it would not run. Told me it "encountered an error and needed to close". I called their Tech Support hotline, which from their accents seems to be in Australia, and they told me "It is just an unfortunate coincidence and there is nothing we can do. We recommend taking it to a repair shop and have it thouroughly looked at." When I asked them if they were going to foot the bill for this, they told me it was not their responsibility. I replied that it was their responsibility to develop a game that ultimately caused my computer to malfunction, so why were they not responsible for fixing it? My next question referred to a refund of the game purchase price. "Take it back"....... Anyone knows that opened software CANNOT be returned.
    Bottom line: Do not buy this game, and do not patronize Destineer Studios, the developer, and 2K Games, the publisher.

    I don't see why everyone is saying this game stinks - I find it pretty fun. The graphics aren't great, but they're good, and I don't see why everyone is saying this game stinks - I find it pretty fun. The graphics aren't great, but they're good, and the gameplay is pretty tense. Full Review »
