  • Summary: Uncover the Horrifying Truth. Set in the show's seventh season, the fear begins when Mulder and Scully travel to the small Rocky Mountain town of Red Falls to investigate a string of unusual murders linked to ghost sightings, the undead, and other paranormal phenomena. The agents then pursue an inhuman killer to a secret research facility in the Siberian wasteland and finally into the depths of a buried alien spacecraft. If they survive, they will unravel the mystery of the black oil and prevent the alien colonization of the planet...for now. The X-Files: Resist or Serve contains three horrific, interwoven episodes created by the Executive Producers of The X-Files. The game features authentic X-Files characters, music and storyline, voiceovers by David Duchovny, Gillian Andersen and the rest of the original cast, and unique DVD-style bonus material containing exclusive commentary and interviews.

  1. Truly makes gamers feel as if they're controlling a lost episode. [July 2004, p.7]
  2. While this game manages a flawless presentation worthy of the X-File legacy, the gameplay deviates from the detective-styled adventure offerings of the past and chooses a more intense action style that might put off the more casual gamer.
  3. An above average game that will be loved by all fans of the X-Files series, but those gamers who aren’t fans of the series will find a game that requires you to know a little too much about the back story to appreciate the nuances of every character and meeting.
  4. While marred by a few technical problems, you won’t find a much better game that captures the spirit of a television show (and at a price point that most can’t beat).
  5. An unoriginal and slightly dull survival horror in the Resident Evil mould, the brilliant X-Files atmosphere and 20 price tag will save it for fans of the show.
  6. X-File fans are going to adore this. Sadly enough, to the rest of us we’re left with an uninspiring, if mildly enjoyable, Resident Evil clone with a few moments of annoyance as we find ourselves missing other subtle references to the TV series.
  7. 40
    It's too bad more attention wasn't paid to crafting a more compelling gameplay engine, but this is one case where style over substance isn't such a bad thing.
