Now, not sure, but it has itThis is the most atmospheric and memorable game I've played. During the year of 2000 it was no doubt the best. Now, not sure, but it has it all. Music, characters, interesting plot, exploration element, different types of controls, fps/arcade/3rd person RPG. I see people complaining about elements like plot, controls and such, but I enjoyed it great deal and continue to do. Only the save game system I liked not, because it doesn't let you to save infinitely, you have to gather some "rings" to be able to save. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Omikron: The Nomad Soul is a good sample for its kind, specially for its own time. Good music, potentially good story (potentially because they spend this potential with lots of mistakes) and a lot of bunch of cool feature like reincarnation mechanics and magnificent cyberpunk atmosphere but when we talk about character depths and real story, we need to speak truth. Usage style of reincarnation mechanics in this game absolutely kills everything. I mean there is no a main character or any feeling when we switch our soul to a host. Devs make us forcibly not to attach to any character and this is the worst thing ever. How can I experience a good story without a good character. There was a lot of moment to make this game a masterpiece. Telis died and we did what? Didn't talk about it even one moment. I know that devs created a plot which involves the real player behind the computer but they don't give us any choice. Just they wants us to pretend like a stupid and
    reckless 15 years old teenager. I appreciate David Cage for this original and creative experience but this couldn't meet my expectations. I won't mention about controls, you know. It's terrible even for its time. It's a 6 or 7. Might be even seven and a half, I don't know.

    Peace.

    This is not a game... it's an experience. If you'll play this, you won't ever forget this. I mean it in a good way and a bad way. Let's talkThis is not a game... it's an experience. If you'll play this, you won't ever forget this. I mean it in a good way and a bad way. Let's talk about good stuff... the soundtrack is magical, the graphics are old, but that is expected from a 1999 game, but the design is just amazing. Everything looks surreal and out of place... at least to me and I love it. Also David Bowie is in the game. He might be dead in the real world, but he's alive and well in Omikron, so that's that. The story makes no sense and the gameplay is horrid... it actually causes pain. Especially the fights with bosses... what an atrocity. To me this is a good example of a wasted potential. Here's a game that had a living city full of people and cars in 3D long before GTA 3 with amazing art style and atmosphere, but thanks to ridiculous plot and awful gameplay it all falls short and becomes a big mess... this is a game that everyone should try out and see for themselves if it's good or not. I'm a big fan of the atmosphere of this game, so I won't rate it bad, because for the most of the time I had fun, but I won't forget the frustration that this game caused me and lack of rationality in certain parts of the game. Play it yourself motherhugger. Pickens approves! Expand
