  • Summary: PsychoToxic places gamers in the shoes of heroine Angie Prophet who, unbeknownst to her, must save mankind from impending nuclear Armageddon. The year is 2022, the place is New York City and as Angie's role as savior unfolds so too does her understanding of why she is the only one that stands in the way of the Fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse and the destruction of civilization.

  1. Just remember to keep playing for more than five levels because once you complete a couple of the dream levels you'll be hooked!
  2. How much you enjoy that gameplay is going to be based on your love of the genre and your tolerance for numerous glitches. Hopefully a patch is in the works to improve things, or at least fix what’s broke.

    There are bugs and instability, and interesting environments can't overcome bland gameplay, weak AI, and lack of polish.
  4. A lot of the good intentions in Psychotoxic are just lost in the mess of it all. We might have recommended the story to fans of sci-fi B-movies, but frankly after a few interesting cut-scenes the story goes absolutely nowhere for hours before wrapping-up in a not-entirely-satisfying manner.
  5. For every second of satisfaction, there is a minute of monotony; where cardboard enemies fall under a cloud of red paint, physics offer no value whatsoever, AI is largely non-existent and gameplay follows the worn-ragged formula of coloured keycards and enemies that appear from thin air. [PC Zone]
  6. Such is the nature of a bad game though; if it's bad, it would have always been and always will be bad.
  7. It's ridiculously long, completely uninspired and quite simply, the biggest waste of my gaming time in the past decade. Even if struck deaf, blind and dumb, anyone can realize that Psychotoxic is without a doubt, one of the worst PC titles of all time.

    Interesting gameplay and slick weapons, but in the end, this game is like masturbation without the pay-off.

    I can't even get the damn thing to NOT lockup at 'Manifestation' world initialization (i.e. the beginning)
