I dont know why some people are giving it 5 6 or 7. This game is great, everything about it is good. It is scary and has good graphics. It is challenging and fun. Doesnt beat Resident Evil, but can maybe make it as big with more sequels.
Well i am not a person that gets into the sci fi games but i gave this one a shot and was very impressed. Graphics were very good. Which is a plus because that is one of my top priorities in games. The story was nothing extravagant but it keeps you interested. There are definitely a bunch of make you jump parts and also very cool backgrounds and noises. The weapons are different but i liked them a lot. Cutting off limbs and stuff is always a plus. Not a fan when you shoot something in the leg and there head flys off so this one is detailed. Once you beat it you can also play through again with everything you collected already so i actually went through this game twice b4 returning it. If you like to shoot things with cool weapons and get a little jump out of it this game is a must.

This game has great graphics, and wonderful atmospherics. When you walk out into a vacuum, clinging to the outside of your ship in zero-G, it really feels like you're about to explode or fly off into nothingness. The gameplay, however, is totally cookie-cutter. Linear missions, collection errands, and a ton of awesome weapons that you can never, ever afford. The immersion takes a bad turn during combat, too; you may not know it, but this monster is only destroyable by flinging red barrels at it. It looks just like the others, but is immune to weapons! I had to look at a walkthrough just to figure out why my weapons work against 99% of the enemies but when confronted with the one PLOT monster, which looks just like all the other generic baddies from The Thing, it is immune to everything except red barrels. Fantastic. If you're into survival horror and love to ration ammunition, this is for you. Otherwise, don't bother.
