  • Summary: Experience the dramatic intensity of the frontlines of a war through the eyes of the first of a new breed of super soldiers in this gritty and epic first-person action game. In the not so distant Future, Lt. Nathan Frost is challenged to stop a renegade regime from eradicating the civilized world. Hong Kong, 2065. 2nd Lt. Nathan Frost is just a regular grunt until he volunteers for a super-soldier transformation for an international army called the Liberty Coalition. A painful series of surgeries gives Frost extra-normal abilities via implanted enhancements, which place him on the frontlines of a war against a destructive regime. After a military coup leaves him stranded in hostile territory, cut off from command with only a handful of men, Frost must stop the militia?s secret weapon that threatens to plunge the world into darkness.

  1. The skillfully crafted Project: Snowblind calls on the best of what we enjoy about the genre, but the game feels nicely removed from the norm. [March 2005, p.52]
  2. Not big and not clever, but lots of simple, high-paced fun while it lasts... The story fits the action: it's speedy, unchallenging, over-the-top yet quite entertaining. [Apr 2005, p.108]
  3. From a technical standpoint, how the framerate stays so smooth with all the action on screen is amazing, and the spot-on controls are icing on the cake.
  4. Tight controls, inventive action scenes and solid artificial intelligence all combine to make the single-player mode an excellent experience.
  5. A decent first person shooter, that you can easily finish during a weekend, without being sorry for the time spent in his company, especially if you're a "Deus Ex" fan, like myself.

    If you have time to think, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
  7. A moderately entertaining, if staid, entry that, at least in its PC incarnation, will probably be left out in the cold. [Aug 2005, p.76]

    Positives: cool cutscenes, online, and huge arsenal of weapons negatives: bugs, not a lot of people are ever online, expected more from this FPS.

    Deus Ex without the brain, multiple routes, cybernetic powers, stealth, action pack levels and retro style PS2 graphics still a lot of fun for an old game. Expand

    Let's see, overly complicated controls for an fast-paced shooter, cartoon-looking characters, and constant crashes. Not the worse FPS I've ever played, but not good. Some of the combat is not bad, but that's all it seems to be - one battle after another. Too bad, it looked like it might be good. Expand

    I found this, on the whole to be an average to middling game. The interface and HUD were a chore at best and a serious bother at worst, the plot line was fairly generic. This was supposed to be the "spiritual successor" to Deus Ex, but I found it to be just as disappointing as Deus Ex 2. Expand

    This game felt like a very generic shooter, and a rather poor console port. Project Snowblind has nothing special to offer, and is at best mediocre in everything it does. Atmosphere and graphics are okay but not great, overall the singleplayer is too short. The whole game somehow seemed half-done and uninspired. I'm glad they decided not to brand this a "Deus Ex" game, it would have done the series more harm than good. Expand
