  • Summary: Experience the dramatic intensity of the frontlines of a war through the eyes of the first of a new breed of super soldiers in this gritty and epic first-person action game. In the not so distant Future, Lt. Nathan Frost is challenged to stop a renegade regime from eradicating the civilized world. Hong Kong, 2065. 2nd Lt. Nathan Frost is just a regular grunt until he volunteers for a super-soldier transformation for an international army called the Liberty Coalition. A painful series of surgeries gives Frost extra-normal abilities via implanted enhancements, which place him on the frontlines of a war against a destructive regime. After a military coup leaves him stranded in hostile territory, cut off from command with only a handful of men, Frost must stop the militia?s secret weapon that threatens to plunge the world into darkness.

  1. Looks and sounds awesome, plays really, really well. The controls are among the best I have seen on a console platform. Good cinematics, plot, atmosphere... A top game. [Mar. 05]
  2. The atmosphere, action, and variety of special abilities make Project Snowblind an enjoyable experience.
  3. Those without a network adapter are left in the dark as Project: Snowblind unfortunately contains no split screen multiplayer.

    The idea was great. An action-packed explosive futuristic urban warfare FPS – but Eidos have not spent enough time on graphics, sound, story, handling and marketing.
  5. When set against the PS2's existing gallery of not-quite legendary online shooters, this game sticks out like an Oscar-winner at an acting workshop. It's worth a look. [Apr 2005, p.66]
  6. Project: Snowblind's most inviting attributes is its jumble of powers and weapon classifications. Everything else however is just not perpetuating the game in the genre-defining standards it should be setting instead of rehashing.
  7. Unfortunately, the difference between what Crystal Dynamics wanted to do with Snowblind and the finished product is a crevasse that good intentions fall well short of bridging, leaving the game lying in a Wile E. Coyote-style could of dust at the bottom. [March 2005, p.110]

    This game is great. A lot of people thought that "Killzone" was the PS2 equivalent of "Halo", but I think "Project: Snowblind" is much better. The frame rate is great, considering how beautiful the graphics are, and the gameplay is absolutely solid. It's also nice to have a T rated game with some visible bloodshed. My only possible concern (though I haven't finished it yet) is that the single player campaign is supposedley quite short, and since I do not posess a network adaptor, I will not be able to play online. However, the single player mode alone is enough for me to fall in love with this game. Thumbs Up!!!!! Expand

    I wonder if the people who rated this game badly ever bothered to finish it. Having played thru the game I gave it a 9.0 bongggg!

    Project Snowblind truly surprised me, it was my 1st experience with a futuristic, strategic game. i am a huge fan of splinter cell, and this game was right up the same alley. i especially liked the weapon selection offered to me in this game. the story line is good and the controls are great. i give this game a playability rating high Expand

    It had a great story line that kept me wanting to go further into the game. A great game to sit down with and play for hours without getting bored. Recomend everyone goes out and get themselves a copy. Expand
