Storyline

You play a new member of the secret First Encounter Assault Recon, a secret commando unit specializing in paranormal threats. For your first mission, you must find the mysterious and murderously insane Paxton Fettel who has escaped from prison and seized control of a prototype army of clones. As you hunt for Fettel, you must battle his clone soldiers who become increasingly advanced and dangerous. If that is not bad enough, you also encounter strange and bizarre sights as you uncover clues suggesting a greater crisis than even Fettel holds. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Trivia

The name of the main antagonist, Alma, roughly translates from Latin to "nourishing one" and is the root for the phrase "Alma Mater" which literally translates to "fostering mother". See more »

Goofs

While the player's goal is to eliminate Paxton Fettel through the entirety of the game, it is very possible to kill him in the very first level. At one point during the first Interval/Stage, the player can activate Slow Mo and squeeze off several rounds of fire into Paxton before he knocks the Point Man out with a 2X4. However, none of the bullets register and the Point Man is predestined to be knocked out regardless of their actions. See more »

Quotes

[a telephone conversation]
The Senator: [Tired] Yes?
Genevieve Aristide: Sorry to wake you, Senator. It's about origin.
The Senator: What happened?
Genevieve Aristide: There was an uprising. Fettel has taken command of the prototypes.
The Senator: My God...
Genevieve Aristide: We can still resolve this discreetly, but we have to move fast.
The Senator: All right, all right, let me... make a few calls...

The best action-horror game...EVER!!!
12 May 2006 | by ehudzilburgSee all my reviews

Since i bought this game, i am playing it over and over, because it's a very special game. Why? Because the effects...the horror this game has...it's almost as a combination of "The Ring" and a John Woo film. The Slow-Mo and the bullets flying through the air is almost as in The Matrix films, and the psychopath killing, and the weird story which is getting cleared minute by minute. I liked Fettel's crazy character...the one that slaughters people. And the so surprising story is making me jump off my chair. The game is so scary your fingers will start to twitch. Once you play it, you can't get your hands off it. Recommended.
