  1. In introducing weapon modification and more importantly Adrenaline/Healing Tool, Pariah ends up feeling significantly different to the vast majority of shooters on the market, there’s a definite sense of survival to the whole experience.
  2. If you are strictly searching for a great solo FPS with stunning production values aimed at providing a cinematic, story-driven experience, then Pariah is a game you simply can’t miss.

    It's quite solid in most respects, but it won't tear you away from whatever you're currently hooked on. In fact, Pariah just made me want "UT2006" that much more.
  4. There are lots of great elements to the game, but nothing that stands out as being worthy of a purchase alone.
  5. Generic Shooter # 7,491, but with some cool weapon upgrades. [July 2005, p.70]
  6. While the backdrop may still have some life left in it, Pariah's combat, story, and weapons loadout are all positively lifeless, making the game feel like nothing more than an also-ran shooter that barely stands on its own, let alone stands up to the genre's best.
  7. Seems like one of the better bland, forgettable shooters out there, if there is such a beast. [Aug 2005, p.72]
