  • Summary: Aeon Flux is based on Peter Chung's popular futuristic MTV animated series and features a palpitating blend of stealth, speed and acrobatic combat. As beautiful as she is lethal, Aeon Flux is an agent whose abilities transcend everyday belief; she will depend upon those skills and talents to rid the city of Bregna from an evil tyranny. Paramount Pictures'/Lakeshore Entertainment's Aeon Flux is set 400 years in the future, when disease has wiped out the majority of the earth's population except for one walled, protected city-state, Bregna, ruled by a congress of scientists. The story centers on Aeon Flux (Charlize Theron), the top operative in the underground 'Monican' rebellion, led by The Handler (Frances McDormand). When Aeon is sent on a mission to kill a government leader, she uncovers a world of secrets. [Majesco] Expand

  1. A very cool game indeed. Stacked up against other movie-based games, it can hold its own with the best of them an it actually makes me more interested in the upcoming film (free ticket or not).
  2. While the plot and motivation spazzes out all over the place, linking the narratives of the animated series and the contemporary movie (literally highlighting different ages and generations), the gameplay is consistently solid.
  3. Combat is somewhat repetitive, though, and the game is more fun when she is jumping across chasms or rolling through tunnels.
  4. By no means is it a life-changing experience, but you could do much worse than exploring the dreary world of Æon’s future. Yet another semi-decent movie game? No one’s more surprised than me.
  5. The game plays exactly like what it is: a quickie tie-in title that cashes in on the license. [Jan 2006, p.72]

    If you like a strict challenge and don't mind fighting the camera, by all means have at Aeon Flux. Just remember that your good friends here at 1UP warned you.
  7. Everything you'd expect from an action movie license - brainless, flashy and without substance. Which would be OK if it wasn't so utterly rubbish too. [July 2006, p.92]
