Nice try...
16 December 2003 | by mentalcriticSee all my reviews

Being that I've never sat through a full episode of the television series, I was apprehensive about buying this video game mainly because it didn't seem to have anything but a license going for it. I wish I had trusted that instinct and not the guy who told me I'd enjoy it more than the other choices, because I definitely wouldn't have bought the game if I had known what was in it.

The combat system and graphics are wonderfully done, making this one of the more pleasant games to start out with because it doesn't have a learning curve as such. Unfortunately, the camera system leaves a hell of a lot to be desired, often prompting me to scream that I want to be able to see what I am doing at the television. This is particularly problematic in one fight where you need to press buttons on a wall in order to open windows for sunlight, but cannot see where they are because the game will not allow the player to rotate the camera to see where they are.

Another sign of a bad video game is the old platform-jumping routine. For the first few levels, the game isn't actually all that bad, but then we are subjected to being made to jump between platforms in order to get to vital areas for forward progress. If, luck forbid, one misses a platform and dies, they have to start the entire level all over again. Being made to do the exact same thing twenty times over is not fun - it is annoying. It is even more annoying when one cannot see where they are meant to be landing because of the camera.

There are elements in the game that do work - the cutscenes that advance the story are nicely done, and the writing is worthy of any good television series. Unfortunately, the game that these scenes string together is tiring and repetitive. The array of weapons available is somewhat inventive in concept, but unfortunately they mostly do quite little to make the game fun. Especially in light of how suspect the aiming system is.

All in all, this game gets a three out of ten from me. The two elements that are fun are overwhelmed by those that aren't, sadly.
