  • Summary: The world has seen all kinds of weapons of mass destruction: nuclear, chemical and biological. Now the threat is digital. A virus, simple in concept yet catastrophic in effect, has been developed. Its target is the communication systems of the world. It will shut down all digital entertainment, economic trade and cripple the military, causing breaches in all security systems and global mass chaos. There is only enough time to send one operative. His codename: Raven. His mission: to find the virus, copy it and then destroy the research lab where it is located. [DreamCatcher Interactive] Collapse

  1. Controls make players suffer, with no customization to speak of. It's too hard to rotate your character, and the lack of a strafe is very unfortunate.
  2. A silly story that the developers don’t try to develop, generally easy puzzles that are boring to solve, a bad interface that tests your patience more than your intelligence, and so-so graphics that don’t make the game fun to look at.
  3. Traitors Gate II has a few good ideas and some graphics in areas that are somewhat imaginative. This can not make up for the boring game play and downright buggy control system.
  4. All up, Cypher was disappointing. But I did feel a sense of accomplishment when I had finished, albeit with some help.
  5. I'd have to use both my fingers and toes to tally up how many times the character suddenly materialized through a wall, or walkway, or big lethal spike-thingy, and so on.
  6. Possibly the worst adventure game of 2003, guaranteed to piss off both adventurers and twitchers.

    Perhaps the worst adventure title of 2003. A dull adventure game wrapped up badly in the ugly clothing of an obsolete FPS.

    I had high hopes for this game...however, I'm stuck at the water elevator and can't progress. Why do companies release a game when one cannot finish it? I have again wasted good money on a bad game. Expand

    I'm normally really good at puzzles but these ones have gone past the fun-yet-challanging point and hit the holy-geeze-get-me-outta-here point. so overall i was not impressed...especially with Raven going throught the walls. Expand

    The most exciting part of the game was throwing it at the bargain bin at a gamestore .... i cant believe this adventure game was a total pulverizing mess. I really thought this game was going to be good but boy was i wrong was i forsaken by this company?? man i was pissed off when i wasted my clean cash. Expand
