  1. It doesn’t happen very often but a hidden gem has slipped under the radar with Scorpion: Disfigured. On first inspection you might dismiss it as ‘just another shooter’. I implore you to look a little deeper as you will find that this game blossoms.
  2. There are plenty of good ideas in this shooter. None of them are new. And none of them are implemented as thrilling as they could have been. All that´s left is a decent shooter with a not-so-bad AI, nice but partly overdone graphics and a non-existent story. There are moments of fun, though. You just have to find them.
  3. Scorpion: Disfigured uses some well-known features from other games, like weapon and character improvements (Deus EX) or psychic abilities (System Shock 2). But nothing really works well, not even shooting, which feels like throwing cotton balls. For a shooter, that's the final nail in the coffin and this game should be buried.
  4. You walk about dark rooms, straining your eyes to discern doors from walls, rotate valves, kill hordes of zombies, mercenaries, robots… and pray that this level will be the last.
  5. It makes Doom 3 look like a masterpiece. [Christmas 2009, p.94]
