MorphX was released for the budget price of $30 and while there are certain budget releases that are actually really good, in MorphX's case you ABSOLUTELY get what you pay for. If your looking to add a very easy 1000 gamerpoints to your gamerscore this is a good pick up. Anything else...well...its very weak.
MorphX has you play as...someone (I cant even remember if they say his name or not...boy we're off to a good start) who has some type of infection that has him slowly changing into a alien/monster. You then try to figure out exactly why this is happening to you, while at the same time there is an alien invasion going on and blah blah blah. Its not in the slightest interesting and very poor told so lets move on...
Gameplay - This is a VERY plain and basic 3rd person shooter. It is litterally move from point A to point B and shoot/kill everything in your path. As you slowly turn from human to monster you get powers like "rage" mode, "alien" vision mode (which is just a night vision mode), a shield power (which even using the shield to block shots you STILL lose life), etc, and to be honest they barely add anything to the already plain gameplay. Nothing original here but what IS here is AT LEAST playable.
Graphics - MorphX can EASILY pass for an original Xbox title. There isnt one thing that makes it look like it should be on the 360. Character models are very average looking with pretty poor detail, enviornments are in the same league with boring level design, and the aliens look rather generic or look just plain uninteresting. Anyway you slice it the graphics are poor for an Xbox 360 game.
Sound - To be honest music is either non-existent or barely audiable to the point where you wont remember one single track. Voice acting isnt great though it isnt too bad. Again, its servicable. Nothing special.
Controls - If you've played any 3rd person shooter in the past 10 years then you'll know what to expect here in terms of controls. You've pick it up in no time flat.
Length - You can litterally beat it in about 4-5 hours. All in all a very short game with NO reason to replay it once its complete.
Achievements - A VERY easy 1000 points. There your typical generic achievements. Examples would be get 100 kills, complete each level, use your powers X amount of times, blow up X amount of explosive barrels, etc. Trust me, if your looking for a quick and easy 1000 points be sure to rent this one.
All in all even for the budget price of $30 MorphX isnt really worth it. I'd say wait until it drops to $20 (or even lower) if you wanna try it out or add that quick and easy 1000 points to your gamerscore.
