  1. This game is perfectly fine as a solo game. Not every FPS in the world needs to be Co-Op.
  2. A solid bug-free game that is fun to play and gorgeous to look at. It could have been so much more, but what we are ultimately left with is still a total blast.
  3. The storyline may be a reworking of a stock plot, but somehow feels fresh against this background.

    It doesn't rely on technical gimmicks. Instead, it delivers cathartic action and an absorbing story. [July 2003, p.114]

    Between all the ship battles, alien spiders in dark caverns, and action-movie challenges, Mace Griffin delivers a good-looking and constantly engaging experience that is equal parts cinema, all-out combat, and skulk-and-kill infiltration.

    A massive, fun, diverse, challening single-player shooter that requires you to use a bit of your brain as well as your brawn, and will keep you coming back for more. [Aug 2003, p.82]
  7. 77
    A very satisfying single-player FPS, coated with a fat-free topping of space combat. The lack of secrets and multiplayer modes also means an utter lack of replay value, but I felt nothing but satisfaction at the rousing conclusion.
  8. One thing that Mace Griffin has going for it is its graphics. The real-time lighting on weapons and animations are just awesome.

    I actually quite like this game. It's got decent graphics, an okay storyline, and pretty awesome gameplay.
    This game is kinda like Halo, but
    I actually quite like this game. It's got decent graphics, an okay storyline, and pretty awesome gameplay.
    This game is kinda like Halo, but it takes place in space. It's a first person shooter and space combat game from the creators of Star Trek Invasion & Battlestar Galactica (Warthog Games).
    If you enjoyed Battlestar Galactica the Game or Star Trek Invasion, then I suggest you try this game out in the future.
    The only two problems I had with this game is that it gets ridiculously hard later on and the soundtrack is pretty mediocre.

    Being able to leave the controls of your ship while at hyper-drive, go back to the john, and look out the window at the debris flying by is Being able to leave the controls of your ship while at hyper-drive, go back to the john, and look out the window at the debris flying by is reason enough to buy it. That and the minigun... and the space cowboy pistola.... lets just say the ppl who made the weapons knew what they were doing. Halo is better though, by far. Full Review »
