    Using live action footage The X-Files Game doesn’t really offer much gameplay other than looking around environments in the manner of a point and click adventure. X-Files fans will likely get some enjoyment from the storyline and cameos from Mulder and Scully but ultimately it’s fairly forgettable.

  1. The X-Files repeatedly bellies up to near-greatness but always slips back to mere above-adequacy.
  2. The gameplay is a cross between Police Quest and Spycraft and is quite entertaining for a while even taking into account those long searches for a black cat in a cellar at midnight.
  3. The X-Files Game will delight fans of the series by placing them wholly inside a world of lies and conspiracy, complete with a torrent of in-jokes and interaction with their favourite series regulars. Even non-fans will enjoy this spooky sci-fi romp, due to its slick interface, gripping plot-line and highly immersive quality.
