    Mind Jack is definitely an enjoyable game and worth picking up and playing from an action standpoint, just don't expect a great script.

    A great concept brimming with unexplored potential anchored by dull shooter mechanics.

    Mindjack fails miserably in almost all fields, from gameplay and graphics to story.

    Sometime a good idea can shape-up a good game. That's not the case. Multiplayer in Mindjack could've saved the day, but all the other stuff will give you only an enormous headache.

    Linear and boring shooter with unpleasant lack of checkpoints, low IQ enemies and ill-managed main feature – mind capturing. [Issue#201]

    A complete waste of good ideas. There's really no reason why you should bother buying this mess.

    The feeling that remains after playing Mindjack, is that the game had a really nice concept, but screwed it over completely half-way through. Wait, not half-way, even sooner... like, right at the beginning. And so, we end up playing a poor action-shooter game, with no taste whatsoever, with average visuals at best, super repetitive action, not even able to correctly copy what's out there.

This style has been doneWhen I had read that Square Enix was making this game i was looking forward to there new game. One word*Boring*. This style has been done 5yrs ago which also matches its graphics..outdated. Rental only don't waste the money. There is a reason some games don't get the hype. If you were to bang your funny bone it would be more fun then this game, Peace Out OSG. Expand

However, the end product is a glitchy and bland experience. While the main mechanic may make you think that this is a good buy, it is in fact not. The paper-thin story and statue-like characters do not help the overall experience either. The horrible game in its true form. Expand
