  1. A beautiful action adventure that incorporates a dash of RPG and a dose of fighting game, Eve of Extinction suffers from a dull, weak plot.
  2. Because the combo system doesn't play a major role in the game due to the AI being brain dead, the game dies out rather quickly and many will get instantly bored with the title.

    I went from disliking the lack of depth in EOE, to enjoying all the extras, to getting fed up with the control flaws; all in the span of one sitting. [Apr 2002, p.74]
  4. Like most outings with the little lady, this one gets tired, but ample eye candy—and violence—ensure that Eve is one traditional kiss good night that occasionally slips you the tongue.
  5. Simple graphics, awkward camera angles, dumb enemies, limited animation, and some questionable control decisions undermine an interesting fighting system peppered with some role-playing aspects and flashes of Matrix-style action.
  6. The smashing of heads and delivery of pain is fun, but is ultimately undermined by the awful camera and limited gameplay.
  7. 35
    A decent little action game to pass the time away, but only if you're desperate.

    I liked it the best because to get the full effect you have to play the game again and again to achieve full completion.
