  1. A very cool game indeed. Stacked up against other movie-based games, it can hold its own with the best of them an it actually makes me more interested in the upcoming film (free ticket or not).
  2. 80
    Fact is, it's good. If you dig the Aeon franchise, Charlize's long, lithe getaway sticks, or third-person action games, check it out.
  3. Combat is somewhat repetitive, though, and the game is more fun when she is jumping across chasms or rolling through tunnels.
  4. 70
    While the game's aesthetics and design is spot on to the franchises distinct style, gameplay teeters between fluidly fast-pace action and insanely difficult and tedious game segments.
  5. In a world where death is as temporary as heartburn, nothing is out of bounds. [Dec 2005, p.62]
  6. Redundant or not, it's also worth pointing out that the whole game only takes ten hours - tops - to finish, and honestly, that's just long enough before the tedium begins to set in.
  7. When Aeon Flux isn't busy being average, it's tied up in its own gibberish, or nudging you towards your next confrontation with awkward controls. It has almost none of the excitement we play video games for and as such, is time lost and tears in the eyes of anyone foolish enough to waste their money.

    Avoid it like the plague. Terrible gameplay and dry graphics completely ruin this.
