  • Summary: Wisdom Incorporated is a distinguished conglomerate known for its great advances in the genetics industry--gene therapy, genome-based drugs, cloning technology and genetic modification of food. JOSH CALLOWAY is an employee of Wisdom and the subject of extensive biochemical experimentation. With superior strength and reflexes, he proves to be the perfect genetic fit for Wisdom's latest research. He hopes to use his enhanced physical attributes for the betterment of medical science. Once Josh discovers Wisdom's true destructive miliary intentions, he decides to escape Wisdom with his girlfriend, Eliel Evergrand, also a co-worker taking part in the development of Legacy. Their escape attempt ended in failure. Eliel's soul is then forced into core of the most powerful Legacy ever made: code-named E.O.E. [Eidos Interactive] Expand

  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.
  3. It left a bad taste in my mouth.
  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. If trudging your way through uninspired level after level, button bashing through a bunch of mindless drones to finish up with some of the most unimaginative bosses in videogames history is your idea of fun then go for it.
  6. 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.
  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.

    Ignore the reviews. this game is $6.00 at ebgames, and its fun. The gameplay is an interesting mix of brawling and RPG elements. Its got a good story, very good voice acting, good graphics, and... just buy it. Expand

    Aside from the bad AI, the game isn't that bad. The weapon designs are really cool and who needs good sound when you're having fun slashing agents? Expand

    The game is just too freakin repetative. I mean really u kill a boss u get a new weapon you kill another boss you get another weapon. Graphics are good and the puzzles make the game challenging. Expand
