  • Summary: The sequel to the classic "survival horror" game, Galerians:ASH brings a new 3D action thriller to the PS2 that masterfully blends horror and science-fiction. Six years have passed since the megalomaniacal mother computer Dorothy launched her plan to create an artificial race of Galerians over whom she would rule... six years since Rion discovered his own identity as a Galerian, yet still confronted his genocidal creator... six years since Rion sacrificed himself to save the humans. Six years have passed, and a catastrophic program released by a dying Dorothy has been launched. [Sammy] Collapse

  1. A groovy game surround by a "so what?" story. Here's hoping the inevitable sequel will see both aspects "get it right" at the same time.
  2. The graphics are really good ... but the similar color scheme in most places hides things well. In addition, some solutions are really vague, and can ultimately lead to a lot of running around.
  3. Get past the weak graphics and there's a stylish, original adventure game here, especially for fans of the first "Galerians" - to which this is a much improved sequel indeed. [Mar 2003, p.42]

    But while putting the psychokinetic kibosh on telepathic geeks is fun, the endless wandering and backtracking hell is a straight-up drag.
  5. 44
    Call it what you want, but I'd call it dull. There are just too many problems and too little to do in the game to make it worth anyone's time.
  6. The game makes you suffer the stress of not knowing what to do or where to go and that makes for very uninteresting and uncomfortable gameplay.

    Why can't the hero run in a straight line? Is he drunk? [Mar 2003, p.43]
