  1. It's like going to your favourite band's concert, seeing them live and coming out gob-smacked - you know that you've enjoyed it and you loved every minute of it but you're stuck for words on how to convey the experience.

    Some parts of the game have you on the edge of your seat with your heart racing as you can really feel for Vattic when attempting to be stealthy and sneak through an area.
  3. The different styles employed within the game: stealth, shooting, psychic abilities means this will be enjoyed by many different gamers, whether they love their Timesplitters, their Tomb Raiders or their Metal Gear Solids.
  4. Fantastic little touches abound, adding up to a firmly cohesive, engagingly structured, marvelously imagined setting to explore. [Oct 2004, p.67]

    I deducted one point for outdated graphics. This game puts others to shame in terms of story and gameplay. There are a few minor bugs with the game, but nothing you can't work around easily. As a developer, I play a lot of games, and after returning armloads of games after a day's play, it's refreshing to run across one that was actually fun to play. Full Review »

    Second Sight is about a bald man with a red eye waking up in a secure facility, John Vattic finds he has these mental powers, he must search for clues; info on what happened and work out how he ended up in the state he's in, and he knows he was on a mission in Russia. So, this is also what the game's about: Vattic was on a mission with a squad a while ago, to get to a base under Dubrensk, find this old man called Professor Grienko, who has spent the past 50 years researching, I can't really explain it though, it's to do with psy though, related to psychic powers, and he has children with them. The team Vattic was in was not the only one looking for him, but also the Russians, and whatever happened in the mission, it went wrong and Vattic ended up where he his. The story is amazing! and the voice acting is excellent. There are times where you have to work out what to do, sometimes you will play a more stealth approach to avoid the alarm going off, there are computers that you will use in most levels, you will change the past as you get flashbacks as you play through the game. Also the way the game is amazing and the levels. I do have some problems with this game though, what they did need to work on more though was the levels, some of them are short, "Conspiracy" for example, they have put a lot of effort into the quality of it, the setup, design and music, but all you do is a couple of things and that's it, and physically not big. When you finish the game, you just won't really comeback and play this game much, and you don't get any rewards for example not having to wait to recharge your psychic powers, have all powers in the levels where Vattic hasn't worked then out yet, nor is there a survival mode. There are times where you have to work out what to do, sometimes you will play a more stealth approach to avoid the alarm going off, there are computers that you will use in most levels, you will change the past as you go through flashbacks as you play through the game and freak out security guards with your mind bending powers, there is also a possession ability, where you can take control of other people, which is fun. Second Sight is a very unique game, unique story amazing plot, awesome psychic gameplay a must play game, download if it's available on PlayStation marketplace. Full Review »
