Storyline

The Video Game follows the first big case for new Blade Runner cop Ray McCoy. He is assigned to "retire" several escaped replicants but he soon finds himself questioning who he is when evidence starts to indicate he himself could be a replicant. It takes place during the same time the film does and involves many of the same characters. The game also has several outcomes all depending on the actions you take whether they be big or small.

Way underrated
13 May 2004 | by squeedleSee all my reviews

This game didn't get a whole lot of attention, but Westwood Studios certainly gave it plenty. Several original Blade Runner cast members supplied their voices for this game, which contributed a great deal to the game's capturing the original feel of th movie. The kind of poignant, revealing detail you saw in the movie was also present in the game; each element contributed to a clear sense of this world.

I will never forget the first time I had Ray step out onto the balcony of his apartment. I was so impressed by the scenery and music that I sat there watching for several minutes.

The game is also different each time you play it, depending on your choice of persona and answers to questions and a couple of moral dilemmas.

It can get boring at times, especially when you have not yet realized that you've missed an important, time critical event (the game is pseudo-real-time), and occasionally this means you must start over. This is the only major flaw, but it is pretty easily overcome.

It isn't particularly action-laden, but you do get to shoot stuff up as well as sort of put clues together, although the clues are pretty obvious signs as to what you have to do next. If your machine can still play it and you are a Blade Runner fan, I highly recommend it.
