    Seems like one of the better bland, forgettable shooters out there, if there is such a beast. [Aug 2005, p.72]

    Its harder to rate this for PC, a system with a lot of great shooters already Pariah was like Chronicles of Riddick similarly dark and Its harder to rate this for PC, a system with a lot of great shooters already Pariah was like Chronicles of Riddick similarly dark and nihilistic, while beautiful. This was actually a great game. The AI takes some getting used to and is initially frustrating just because it's so easy to get killed senselessly (ie. running in guns blazing). They exhibit tactics and strategy, especially later in the game. It DEFINITELY exceeded Doom 3 and Quake 4 in every way (graphics, variety, plot, music) and in many ways Unreal II, and Halo 2. The plot was no more confusing than that of Halo 2. It did feel not quite polished in some areas, and I wish there was more exposition, (it was pretty confusing,) but what you are told is both intriguing and refreshingly adult, it reminded me of MG:Solid back in the day. That game didn't have the most high-powered graphics and yet was still impressively beautiful, still is, and still told a powerful story. I payed way less than $50-60, but even if I had, I would have felt I got my money's worth. Full Review »
