REVIEWS Loadout Review
What do you really expect of a shooter these days? Loadout probably already has it somewhere in gobs of gameplay, but you won’t hear me saying it’s worth your time.

Dokuro (PC) Review
Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

Advent Rising Screenshots



Publisher: Majesco Games
Developer: GlyphX Games
Platforms: Xbox, PC
Genre: 3rd person, action/adventure
Release Date: 2004

Overview:

Advent Rising is the first in an epic trilogy of action/adventure games, presented in a stunning cinematic format to deliver an unprecedented variety of game play experiences. Built on the Unreal Warfare engine, it offers precise, refined play-dynamics with action-packed adventure and style, wrapped in a visually imaginative universe. Advent is akin to a fast-paced action movie where the player is swept up in a continuously evolving series of sequences and events.

Working with award-winning science fiction author Orson Scott Card, GlyphX Games has created a gripping storyline that will thrust gamers and readers alike into an incredible intergalactic saga. In Advent Rising, players make decisions that effect not only what they experience in the first game, but the entire Advent trilogy.

Storyline:

In Advent Rising, a common legend pervades the galaxy—that of a powerful, highly intelligent ancient race that will one day deliver the universe. They are known simply as Humans.

Some claim them to be the messiah, believing they will one day come to deliver the universe into harmony. Some simply see them as a symbol for eternal hope. Others see them as purely fantastical creatures existing only in the imaginations and storybooks of the young.

The Seekers, however, know that Humans truly do exist and see them as an enemy that must be destroyed. Under the guise of benevolent explorers they comb the universe and eradicate any Human colonies they find. Until now.  

This year, gamers find out what it means to be truly Human.

Game Play Features:

•  An unprecedented single-player gameplay that allows gamers to play through the thrilling action sequences of a blockbuster movie or game, rather than just watch them;
