  • Summary: Utilizing an enhanced version of the LithTech engine, KISS Psycho Circus comes alive with realistic character and object motions, and interactive music and sound effects. The game supports up to 50 creatures on the screen at once, the largest number of creatures on the screen at one time in a first-person game. [Gathering of Developers] Expand

  1. I might sound like a Kiss fan gushing about this game solely because I like the band, but I am writing this review as a PC game fan, gushing about this game because it is that good.
  2. More than just a celebrity cash-in, this is a great first-person shooter.
  3. It all falls into place here: solid gameplay, genuinely unique artwork and haunting enemies in addition to a well-designed pattern of puzzles gives you a game that deserves more artistic and entertaining acclaim than the band does.
  4. Based on the tried and tested "Doom" formula, "The Nightmare Child" is hardly innovative, but is incredibly satisfying in its blood and guts simplicity.
  5. 70
    Takes a questionable franchise and turns it into something somewhat entertaining. Although it might not be as much fun as watching Gene Simmons and his famous tongue parade wildly around the stage.
  6. An imperfect FPS that is too much Psycho Circus, not enough KISS.
  7. All we have is a decently average first person shooter amidst an entire crowd of decently average first person shooters.

    This game is amazing. This ROCK. This is a game that every rocker should play. For its time has excellent graphics and the story is very good.

    All these scary insects that run to you! You can shoot them into pieces. Then they walk with only one leg to you! The enemies are very original, the locations are very psycho. When you have played the first chapter you think: What a long game, this took me hours. Then you find out that there are three other chapters to play with other locations. Expand
