    Pretty solid FPS here, especially for the PS2. While it gets kind of repetitive near the end, and the checkpoint system is balls, it has a good storyline and gives the player a good challenge without feeling unfair... most of the time. If you have a PS2, this game is worth picking up, and it's very affordable at only about $2.

  1. Sure it’s short and the online game is disappointing, but the core campaign is challenging and lots of fun. Those with a visual sweet tooth will love the eye candy this game has to offer, and the sounds of war have never been this dramatic.
  2. It's quite ironic that a game based on a license that is the progenitor of sci-fi gaming ends up feeling like a kludgy, mediocre hodge-podge of better sci-fi shooters. [Nov 2003, p.147]
  3. A game based on such a rich tapestry of races should at least give you a choice of whom to play as, but for the entire single player experience you'll be Kais, a Tau warrior. That's not so bad, if you are a fan or collect Tau. But what if you aren't?
