  1. With its bleak environments, surreal plot and button mashin' gameplay, Eve of Extinction is one big mess. [May 2002, p.106]
  2. A game that could've been so much more has turned into a pile of... well, crap.
  3. There is nothing about the game's style that particularly stands out; it has a decidedly generic feel.
  4. There's just no way around it, the camera is terrible and contributes to making this game’s fun factor go way down.
  5. The idea is good; a sort of modern weapons-based update to the old-school brawler genre, but the implementation is poor, riddled with camera and control issues, resulting in a less than enjoyable game.

    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.
