Quotes

Dr. Janice Polito: The genie of Citadel station is out of the bottle, and I am the cause. I can't bear to be Pandora. And I'm not brave enough to wait around and see the death and misery I have caused... This is my last transmission, my friend. Be careful... I think SHODAN has plans for you.

One of the most scary game i have ever played
30 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

Rpg/Fps/Survival Horror/Sci game (a true classic)

You´re a trained military that wakes up from the cryo tube sleep. Somethings gone terrible wrong. Humans that have becomed Zombies are wandering around the gigantic ship in their search for flesh. You can hear their haunting voices then they with their last free, beg you to kill them. But later you will find out that theres much worse creatures. Like gigantic spiders or large heavely armed sequrity robots!

This is prob the best game ever made. Imo only Deus Ex can compete. As in Deus Ex you can often choose your actions in a situation. You can sneak past the scary creatures, kill them or just run like hell. Something you may have to do many times since the ammo is hard to get by and the weapons degrade. You can alter your skills and abilitys with special machines and its up to you what you want to be good in!

You can be a hackingmaster who deactivates every sequrity system he comes by, a Osa (a psy energy user) or a walking tank and everything between. You follow the story by logs and messages between characters.

A really great game everyone should have played!
