Atmospheric, worthy addition to the legendary movie
12 July 2001 | by (Antwerp, Belgium) – See all my reviews

The "Blade Runner" game is an excellent adventure game, that succeeds in recreating the style & atmosphere that made the original movie so great in the first place. In keeping with the movie's visual qualities, the game features an incredibly detailed, almost organic environment, featuring a decaying futuristic city, complete with spinners flying about, airships flying around, advertising the qualities of the Off-World colonies, background noises from busy little shops in shady neighbourhoods,...

Unfortunately, the game sprites also tend to look very blocky, especially when close to the screen. A minor flaw in an otherwise excellent looking and sounding game.

Also, again in keeping with the movie it is based on, Vangelis' powerful score was used (with added music emulating the style of Vangelis' tracks)

The game quite good voice-acting; the actors themselves were filmed and rotoscoped, resulting in very realistic moving character sprites. Also, several of the original movie's actors returned to play their movie characters, which is an added bonus for anyone who has seen the film.

As for gameplay, the story itself tends to be relatively short and a bit too easy, but you do have multiple endings (maybe up to 13, maybe even more) since the game has certain variables that may be different in each new game. So there should be plenty of replayability here.

By the way, it is not necessary to have seen the movie to play this game, but it does help. Besides, the film is a classic, one of the best SF movies ever made, so you *could* do worse with your time... :-) also highly recommended (and helpful in understanding the world this game presents) is the novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?", by Philip K. Dick, on which the movie was based. A nice touch in the game is the references both toward the movie *and* the book. It's often the little touches that make life great.

Highly recommended.
