For one such pilot named Wayne, death almost seemed imminent until he was fortunately rescued. However, he can only remember a few fragments of his past including the slaying of his father by the monstrous beings. Yet under the veil of ice, a devious plan has been set into motion for the termination of all Akrid and snow pirates alike. What really happened to Wayne? Who is plotting the destructive scheme? Encounter valuable allies and dangerous enemies on Wayne's search for the truth. [Capcom] Expand

  1. It's not going to win any awards for its storyline, but when viewed as a series of standalone missions, it's a blast, and I believe that what it’s supposed to be.
  2. Shot-for-shot this is the same game console players had in January - a fantastic, hard as hell shooter that'll knock your eyes out of your head. But with no new content at all and a lack of the ultra-cool bonus multiplayer maps, we've got to dock it a bit.
  3. The port itself just seems to be incomplete, with the Xbox 360-centric prompts, reward tokens (previously used for 360 achievements) that now have no purpose whatsoever, and sluggish performance.

    Capcom of Japan is learning from the West in their game design, and learning how to do a PC port the right way. It's clear that this is alien territory for them, and they have missed some opportunities along the way. Still, they have created an enjoyable game and a port that satisfies, even if it isn't as grand as it could have been.

    The AI has some dumb moments. Several enemies remained inactive until I'd shot them three times. [Sept 2007, p.70]
  6. But if shooter enthusiasts own a powerful gaming rig, they will not be disappointed, with a $39.99 price tag (a full $20 cheaper then the X360 version) thrown in for good measure.
  7. A once-reasonable game for the 360 is now a distinctly mediocre game for the PC.

    I have noticed that alot of the people tearing the game apart are Xbox360 owners which tells me that either there very bitter about the fact I have noticed that alot of the people tearing the game apart are Xbox360 owners which tells me that either there very bitter about the fact the graphics are enhanced for the PC version or they just have a crappy PC that would have trouble playing Doom 1 never mind anything else, i thought this game was amazing the graphics are great and the sound excellent even my brother who brought and Xbox360 when they first came out prefers this vesion, or maybe its because they getting back at the PC comunity for the up coming version of Gears of War with its extra missions and enhanced graphics. Don't bitch and whine if you don't like it, why did you buy it in the first place after all there was a demo out that you could try BEFORE spending you money. Expand

    First impression: omg what's with this horrible response time! even with all settings at the lowest there is half a second delay between First impression: omg what's with this horrible response time! even with all settings at the lowest there is half a second delay between moving the mouse or hitting a key and a reaction in the game (and no it's not just my computer). Then after a short while you realize that it's a really amateur game. graphics ok, but everything else mediocre. could the dialogs be any more awkward? are those actors speaking? and the gameplay gets boring fast. nothing new nothing special, just shoot some aliens.
