    What a truly horrible game.

    Clunky controls creating a frustating experience - check
    Annoying voice acting - check
    Poorly explained objectives and gameplay mechanics - check
    terrible graphics and animations - double check

    Feels like an old PS1 game that was rushed, then forgotten about then found at the bottom of a pile it and instantly released to re-coup costs. It has no redeeming features and nothing new at all. You've seen it all before and better, and most likely cheaper too :(

    yeah. there was a whole load of shit with the devs harassing sites that reviewed it badly... not doing themselves any favours.

    Ok, but on another subject, what did you guys think of that Alien Breed game? I thought the demo was pretty fun. Anyone played the full game?

    The videos intrigued me, and I liked the way the character models appeared wet when they came out of the water.

    But then it seemed like the developers came out with a water mechanic and then built a game around it.

    I was interested in this game, then I read Joystiq's reviews and saw the screen shots.
