    Imaginative graphics and superb sound, a sprawling adventure packed full of neat touches and cool weapons, great humour and an accomplished multiplayer; Glitch embodies what games are really all about - challenge, entertainment and fun.
  2. An awesome game. It flexes great graphics despite being limited by PS2's hardware and multiplatform snags. The only major weakness to this game is the lack of multiplayer.
  3. A great game that any fan of shooters or third person games would enjoy.

    This is ballsy, brash, confident gaming at its best - a lesson in how games don't have to be perfect to be brilliant. [Christmas 2003, p.102]

    But what it does have is a visceral feeling of destruction few other games possess.
  6. Game Informer

    Does what a lot of titles fall well short of - delivering an engagning mix of styles to form a cohesive whole that spurs you on every step of the way. [Nov. 2003, p.152]
  7. An unoriginal game that fails to improve on any of the games it emulates. It’s just another game in a long line of “me too” cookie-cutter platformers that fills the stores around Christmas time.
