The Thing Box art For every 3 things I liked about this game, there was alway 2 that drove me insane. Overall it was a semi-enjoyable game that made me lose too much hair.


The game has a decent look and feel to it. The controls are ok, but it takes a bit to get used to. The main problem is about 2/3 into the game it becomes way too hard. The med packs and ammo are too far between, and you will find yourself playing the same thing over and over again. It quickly become more frustrating than fun.

I liked the idea of having others that you had to build trust and get to help you, but this idea did not go far enough, and ultimately had no bearing on the game. Plus, you can't keep your crew from level to level. There were several more issues, but it would take me too long to go through them all.


Pretty basic visuals, but they succeed. The outdoor scenes do feel cold and desolate, and there is enough variety to keep it interesting.


Sounds were also basic, and nothing remarkable, but did the trick. There was nothing that stood out as being bad or good.


Suggestions:
Make the game a tad bit less frustrating. Build on the trust relationship aspect and make it a more intregal part.


Overall: 6.0 / 10
Gameplay: 7.0 / 10
Visuals: 6.0 / 10
Sound: 5.0 / 10
