  1. Truly makes gamers feel as if they're controlling a lost episode. [July 2004, p.7]
  2. Incredibly strong plot. Unrealistic, yes, but absolutely compelling at all times – enough to make you go back and play through the game again from the other Agent's viewpoint, just to fill in a little more of the story that you might have missed.
  3. The developers and everyone else involved have taken this project seriously and it shows. Mulder and Scully have found irrefutable proof of life after cancellation.
  4. 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.
  5. This game just came out of nowhere and impressed me. While I am not the biggest X-Files fan on the planet, I still very much enjoyed the game.
  6. While the game is marred by some graphical and gameplay issues, it still crafts an intriguing and engaging set of "episodes" that will please fans--as well as survival horror aficionados--with the taste of some good, old-fashioned alien conspiracy.

    Those expecting action as intense or as challenging as that of "Resident Evil" or "Silent Hill," though, may be disappointed. But if you're looking for a good introduction to the genre and don't mind some control and graphics issues, the FBI is waiting.
  8. Sure, the gameplay itself is dated and uninspired, but everything else -- from the intelligent, witty writing to the fantastic voice acting and ambient music -- propels the title to something more than a cheap cash-in (but it is nicely priced at $30).
  9. 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.

    a servicable Resident evil clone that makes great use of the material from the show. Loved playing this back in the day. The game gets reallya servicable Resident evil clone that makes great use of the material from the show. Loved playing this back in the day. The game gets really tough towards the end and I could only complete it with cheats. There's a good mix of shooting, horror and detective work with loads of great touches and easter eggs from the show. Decent voice acting, particularly by Gillian Anderson. Full Review »
