Its OK and i stress the OK
This game isnt horrible by any means but it is not great either. Graphics are pretty good, storyline is confusing, sound is decent the characters are no different then anything else only difference is the ability to hack between either stunned people or civilians. the hacking part is interesting because u can flank your opposition by mind hack an innocent person who happens to be crouched down in the firefight in a good location to attack from behind your enemy. the shooting is ok but you litterally have to unload about a clip and a half into someone to kill them so not too realistic. it reminds me of resident evil 5 meets mass effect with the whole leveling up concept and RE5 because of the screen and action type and camera. Overall i didnt give it a high score because im really picky and i think in order for a game to score high it has to be great. i went in the middle because it really is a decent game but no more then that. hopefully this helps all of you out there when deciding to get it
One word to summarize this game: Horrible.
I had high hopes for this game. A great idea and a cool sounding gameplay addaption to the game world. And after I playyed it I'de have to say to not get this game. I repeat, do NOT get this game. A very repetitive game that sometime sinks int the " What the heck?!?" level. Example, at one point you battle two giant robot. Sounds cool, right? Wrong! Instead of killing the 'bots, you kill the bad guys around him. Does that make any sence? The dialouge is the worst I've ever heard in a game. It sounds like a robot itself acted out for it. There are glitches everywhere! Remember the cool consept of hacking int a person's game? Well, when looking for a body to take over, a train type thing got in my why and I couldn't go anywhere! I had to quit the game! I'm trying not to think of something that's not bad in this game. Well, if you like being a sicoatic monkey with guns, get the game. Unless, don't waste your money on this game.
Is that a gorilla in bodyarmor?
No seriously, is that a gorilla in bodyarmor? Cause if it is, I'm gonna give this game a chance.
Really cool idea that fell short...
This game got some low scores from critics and it is not without reason, there are some serious flaws with this game. That being said however, the idea is interesting enough and the gameplay unique enough that it is worth a visit, but I would wait until it is dirt cheap. The story line is nonsensical and confusing, and the ending doesn't really make much sense and on top of that the pretty bad voice acting will make you laugh before it ever really draws you in. The concept of making people mind slaves and hacking into them is really cool, but it is not utilized enough... there are no puzzles to solve and not too much of a reason to hack into others minds unless you just want to see what the play style is like with them. The graphics aren't terrible, but there are much better out there and I was expecting better cinematics from a developer like Square Enix. One of the coolest things about this game is the multiplayer which is unique and fairly entertaining. It won't keep you occupied for days, but it is fun to mess around with every now and again. The leveling up system is not too bad, although it does slow to a snails pace at the higher levels and since you won't get anywhere near those in one play through, you won't likely reach them at all. There is little replay value unless you are going for achievements, which are all relatively easy to get... just time consuming. All in all, this game could have been great if it was given the proper amount of tlc, but it wasn't. As it stands it is mediocre, but the cool concept makes me hope that another game like this will come out, but not have so many flaws.
AI makes this game unplayable
If your AI partner dies, you die. Not only does she not take cover, but she WALKS INTO hordes of enemies. If you try and revive her in that situation, you will die too. Game over. Enemies also take literally 150 bullets to kill. Not only would I recommend that nobody buy this, I recommend that Square Enix personally apologize to everyone that bought this, and offer them all their money back.
Interesting world but ...
The world in which this is set interests me, but the graphics and mechanics seem to be lacking. I'd have to see more of the gameplay to even consider this as a good game.
Looks Promising, but...
Overall, the game does look very promising. It has decent graphics, games don't need the best graphics to be the best game. The only way this game will be amazing, awesome, or great is by 3 things: Gameplay, control mechanics, and STORY most of all. Almost every game needs a story, and that is what most new games lack. Sure there were some games that had a story, but it was so stretched that people got bored pretty quickly. Let the game have it's story that will make people interested. With an amazing story, great controls, very decent graphics, and "no dull moment" gameplay, MINDJACK could be one of the best games to come out in 2011
not jumping for joy just yet
mindjack seems like a good idea for a game but i'll wait to see how the sales play out and till it gets a dropped price and a used copy cause this is one game i would never buy new.
Graphics =) The point of the story... idk
Well I saw the game preview and it looked pretty awesome... Graphics are moderate and controls look ok, but i didn't understand what the game was about...only mind controlling freak things that make you... freak out lol.
This Mindjack game looks totally B E A S T: BEAST!!!!!!!!!!! :)
