Well, Gamergate has spilled over into the mainstream media and the coverage appears to be nearly uniformly dreadful. Take " What is Gamergate, and What Does It Say About Gender In Video Games? " by David Konnow as an example.  It appears that the writer has done little to no...

What do these ratings mean?

Ah yes, one of the best ideas to be made for game, only to fail easily in the end. That is not that bad of a feat, considering a lot of games out there are bad, but this one was so bad, it is not even worth reading this review.

I could save you time, but I feel compelled to go through my old library of game experiences (bought this for 1.99 in Gamestop recently, so I figured why not?) and tell you how bad this is in my standard review format.

Graphics-

Even at the standards of 2 generations ago, the graphics look really bad. Foggy backgrounds, blocky people, and overall just a grainly looking feel to them. The only bright spot is there there were no framerate problems in pretty decent sized worlds, at that time at least, and the aliens looks pretty cool themselves. Some more fine tuning would of been better.

Final Score- C-

Gameplay-

The controls are really dated, sluggish and just plain awful. Moving around is akward, and driving is even worse. Sadly the only time you have any equal footing is if you ARE driving in some form of a vehicle against the insects, so good luck trying to kill them that way. Nothing redeemable here.

The only good spot is the entire idea itself.Your trying to stop alien bugs from taking humans and using them as food. At the time it was great. Sadly, execution was horrible, as your dropped into a decently large world with stuff to look for, but no way of figuring out what to do. It's trial and error it seems like.

What makes this worse is, while the spaces are large enough, there is no way to save progress. It's all or nothing until the level is complete, and these are 4 long levels in the game.

The game needs serious fine tuning, but I think were about 8 years to late for that....

Final Score-  D-

Sound-

What sound? There are no good sound effects, and annoying bug screams (if bugs can scream) and explosions. Music is just as bad, really. Nothing redeemable.

Final Score- F

Overall-

The game is bad. Avoid it. I don't think I need to make that any more clearer for you all!

Final Score- F

Overall Score- D-
