  1. The PS2’s slowdown monster rears its ugly head from time to time, mainly during huge (5+ monsters on screen) fights.
  2. Delivers some great style but lacks in the depth department.
  3. Delivers a good twist on the "Resident Evil"-style game play by adding more action and speed, a decent script and memorable characters.
  4. If you purchase/rent “Run Like Hell” fully aware of its quirks (repetitive gameplay, iffy control, passable-but-not-extraordinary visuals) then some fun can be had with its “Aliens”-meets-“The Predator” shooting antics and awesome Dolby Pro Logic II-coded sounds/voice-overs.
  5. There weren’t any killer mistakes, but all the little details like the unnatural character animations and the poor control setup start to add up.
  6. The core gameplay is just too tiresome and frustrating to be entertaining for any extended length of time, but the story and cinematic presentation is a nice bright spot.
  7. Run Like Hell goes from easy to very hard and stays boring and derivative all the way through.

    Hard, good game play, good story line, fun to play and easy to get into, but does have a slow start. Good time consuming game.

    Don't believe all the crap people write about this game. I was skeptical at first, but as the game went on, it got better and better. I Don't believe all the crap people write about this game. I was skeptical at first, but as the game went on, it got better and better. I think this is a game worth playing. I enjoyed it. It started out with a slow start and a lot of movies but it progressed and things got much better. I rate this game a 7 out of 10. Different bite for different likes. Enjoy the game. Expand

A full 90% of the time your fighting the enemies head on with no where to run. Your weapons are extremely bland, it fails to make an interesting phaser or plasma slinging explosive grenade shot laser pistol boomer weapon that can make the game any cooler. The monsters are very 2d either they can be killed or not. The puzzles are more frustrating than anything and the game just sucks! Please for your safety avoid this game at all costs! Expand
