    I had high hopes for this game, but unfortunately, it falls way short of expectation. The cover system is probably the coolest I've seen in a shooter, but is the only unique feature you'll find here. Swarms of enemies, difficult NPC AI, and lack of any interesting gameplay besides ducking and shooting makes playing Kill Switch get repetitive fast.

    Serves up round after round of smart, strategic firefights, challening both mind and reflex. [Dec/Jan 2004, p.99]
  2. These battles, they feel real. More important, they seem dangerous.

    In a perfect world all budget games would be of kill.switch's quality - that's where it would soar, that's where it would be ideal. As it is, it's almost exactly six hours of gung-ho entertainment from the moment you switch on your machine. But that's still just six hours. [Feb 2004, p.104]
