One of the better titles out there. Good controls, never ending addition of powers, boss fights that can actually be won without having to replay them 100 times, lots of twists and turns in the story, and a main character with attitude.
Not a simple FPS. You need to analyze your surroundings, look carefully for clues and try different things to progress. Seemingly indestructible threats can be eliminated if different strategies are used.
AI voice overs are a bit redundant and can bug you if you get stuck in a tough spot, but other than that, it's a game for the collection.
This is one of the best Xbox titles I have ever played so far. The physics in the game are incredible and the power you have over your enemies is intense. The graphics are decent and the storyline is good.
This gems is one of the most original and fun to play games ever. Most great ideas get stupid game play and a bad story. This game, however, is the opposite. You get to burn people with PK, throw people with TK, and Control people with MC. Simply Awesome!!

Im sorry, but I have no idea why it has such a high rating. I found this thing on the first page categorized by "gamefly rating."
Anyway, I just have to say that this game is barely any fun. The way this game starts, it's fun, but when you're in the middle of it. It's not fun.
Basically you play as a psychic soldier that (I cant remember the plot too well since it's been so long) is trying to escape this band of terrorist phycics. You get some guns to shoot other soldiers with and you get some psychic powers that you "restore" within your mind since your has altzimers or something and forgot them.
If the guns weren't so boring or if the AI wasnt so horrible or if the enemies werent so cheap, this game might have been good. You get to use guns that you steal from guards or other soldiers and blast others with of course, but the guns are extremely weak and it's much easier to just use your psy power, but eventually the soldiers somehow can cancel out your powers when you use them so you're forced to use horrible weapons. Now the thing that bugged me the most about this game was the godawful AI. I'll give you an example of them to give you a better picture
You: *Moves on inch*
Guards:(One mile away in the bathroom in the next building) "HEY I HEARD SOMETHING! I BETTER TAKE SIX OTHER ARMED MEN TO CHECK IT OUT
You: ...aw man
Guards: THERE IS SOMEONE THERE! SOUND THE ALARM!
Maybe if they took that part out this game might have gotten a better rating. There's very few good things in this game. Sure the graphics are pretty good for a two year old game, but it's just way too annoying to play through the whole thing.
The only thing that got this thing a four was that the training room was FUN. You can use you powers on ANYTHING in there. There was this wrecking ball that you could lift with your telekinesis and through at boxes or just soldiers that you could insert in the training room.
This was my favorite Xbox game of all time. In fact I still have this game, just can't play it on 360. Not back/compat. Sure wish they would re-make this game for the now generation, they would love it.
I remember playing this game a long time ago back when there was no xbox 360. But what game fly has wrong is that this game is TWO PLAYERS. Gamefly might be calling it one player maybe because when you play as two players, you're the same person. One controls the shooting (and powers? I'm not sure if it's the other person) and the other controls the movement and camera. I find that the only let down (which is the biggest there could be) is that it's not compatible for Xbox 360. Just be sure you know, this game IS for TWO players.
