  1. It can be really fun when the wonky camera and the troublesome lock-on control don’t get in the way, but once the ride’s over there’s no incentive to go back (i.e. no multiplayer mode).
  2. 68
    It's just not that fun and the camera ruins much of what could be fun. I was repeatedly frustrated trying to kill lame enemies while looking at stale, last-generation graphics.
  3. A strictly average action game that may interest the few players who haven't graduated to a newer system, but serious gamers will pass it over for something a little more modern.
  4. If you've got a real "post-apocalyptic-fight-the-aliens-and-robots" itch to scratch, then you might get a kick out of this one. Anyone else will become bored far too quickly to bother.
  5. It stacks up well against the graphics of something like "Syphon Filter," which is what it ought to be compared to. [August 2002, p.20]
  6. It's very fulfilling and a challenge. The graphics are very good, and the music sets a appropriate mood. If not for some camera issues and a bit of "unfair" attacks here and there, I'd rate it higher.
  7. If you're not able to get your hands on a next-gen system, C-12 is probably the best thing to satiate your Playstation desires. [July 2002, p.89]
  8. It's all here in one craptastic package that's destined for the bargain bins. [July 2002, p.128]
  9. A cyborg action-adventure bursting with great gameplay. [July 2002, p.82]
  10. 70
    If a Playstation is all you have and three Syphon Filters just isn't enought, then C-12 is worthy of your attention. [August 2002, p.86]
  11. It's hard to call a game good when it features such shoddy controls and camera positioning. [July 2002, p.102]
  12. Don't let the staggeringly dull, generic name fool you: C-12 has mood, challenge and even something of a personality, but with the dated gameplay and visuals, it just takes some time to see it...perhaps longer than many gamers will be willing to wait.
