I think it is a well thought out game.I was about 6 years old when i played it and it scared me to go around the corner.I am now 13 and it still scares me to go around the corner.Trust is a very important thing in life but also in the game.Not only do your teammates have to trust you but you have to trust them to but trust is very scarce because they just might be one of them.You must take care of your teammates also because they might be handy in a fight but they can also die.This game isnt like resident evil its better the graphics arnt that good but it makes up with the gameplay.If you like gory bloody scary shooting games this games is for you.

This was my first time to play this game, even though it came out over 5 years ago. That being said, it was well worth the rental. The gameplay is excellent, rewarding, and very hard. I recommend using the Action Replay cheats on this one. (If you do use these cheats, avoid using all three cheats at one time - causes the system to freeze). The cinematic sequences were fair, but the ending leads much to the imagination. I gave it an 8 because even though it's over half a decade old, it still beats out many new games coming out for the system.

This game makes up for it's weak graphics with a unique game play style. Controlling your squad, keeping them brave, focused, and most importantly alive, is a very tough job in 40 below weather. Trust is also an important factor in this game, if your squad doesn't trust you they won't do anything. To me this game is enjoyable and if they remade it with better graphics than it would be an incredible game.
