    You'll feel frustration nearly as much as exhilaration, but the concept shines through. [Apr 2011, p.96]

    Mindjack teaches us that a good concept doesn't always evolve into a good game. Square Enix should really think about all the mistakes they've made if they ever want to create a successor.

    Interesting ideas like the multiplayer interactions aren't supported by a suitable structure, story and technical execution.

    Cheap science-fiction, lame story and a not-fun gameplay system. We're still wondering why Square Enix wanted to develop an action-paced game without any kind of meaning at all, just a copy & paste of games like Gears of War and Uncharted. Nothing interesting here, better wait for something that's worthy of our attenttion.

    Feelplus and Square-Enixʼs new try in the shooting genre falls way too short, compared even to the weakest 3rd-person shooters of the last five years.

    The bottom line is the more I played Mindjack, the more I wanted to stop playing Mindjack. I made it through to the end, but it wasn't without a lot of head-scratching, hair-pulling, and obscenity-laced tirades.

    Basic, totally generic gameplay.

    Don't get me wrong this game has its problems but lets go over the good things first. The gameplay is of course a core third person shooterDon't get me wrong this game has its problems but lets go over the good things first. The gameplay is of course a core third person shooter with RTS elements. While this might sound tedious it actually flows quite well and can be pulse pounding. The graphics are nothing special but not terrible. The story is a weak point but odd enough it's easily ignored amogst the frantic battles. It's basically a cheesy sci fi future that's terribly bland considering the setting. The game reminds me of Kane and Lynch: Dead Men where the flawed mechanics are nothing in compared to the exciting new ideas and creativity. Buy this game for the multiplayer as its a definite saving grace for this title. Expand

    I have not seen this poorly executed games since sonic freeriders and APB.The story of this game is catastrofic.But the worst thing in thisI have not seen this poorly executed games since sonic freeriders and APB.The story of this game is catastrofic.But the worst thing in this game is that when you enter mindjack mode,the most ear killing sound ever appears,so you never want to mindjack in mindjack.Bosses in the game are too easy to beat you just have to kill some people and that is it he is just there being stupid and doing anything.And the A.I is so brain dead that they just stay in the middle of the way shooting walls nothing else literally.And the voice acting is pure S**t.So my final verdict for this game is a 0 out of 10 0-why was this planed???I hope god has mercy on the souls of the men that worked on this game
    Please do not buy this peace of crap

    THIS GAME SUCKS ASS!!!! How could square enix let thir name be on this. I will give a brief list of why this game sucks ass

    1. An enemy walked up to me and said "Watch out grenade!" even though there wasnt a grenade, after i shot him in the face. HE SAID THE SAME DAMN THING!

    2. One boss repeatedly shot at the ground and wouldnt die until all the other enemies were dead

    3. THE MAIN CHARACTERS DONT KNOW WHAT MINDJACKING IS!!!

    4. you have to earn the right to make teams

    5. The graphics suck donkey balls

    6. I can name hundreds of other games you could be playing right now.

    7. Cover sucks balls

    8. its extremely buggy

    9 and 10: It issnt even worth talking about

    Do not play this game under any circumstances

    Where do i start with this god awful game its like being in a dark basement, strapped to a chair and getting your fingernails pulled out oneWhere do i start with this god awful game its like being in a dark basement, strapped to a chair and getting your fingernails pulled out one by one thats how much this game sucks! First of all the story line is linear and pointless, like the same recycled enemys over and over again, thats if you can get there A.I to function properly they'll just stair at the wall or just wander into the open getting shot at with no intelligence what so ever! Big robots that are suppose to bosses just shoot at the ground! Are they there just to look pretty? Do one thing nd DO NOT BUY THIS GAME! Expand
