    Again, Gamespot call is wrong.

    Rated on July 18, 2006 by AtomBomb

    This game is a breath taking, immersive, fanatical game. I was a bit lost at first but then I realised I am getting the chance to live a sci-fi novel. The game takes you in immediately, with cinemati...

    Do no, I repeat, DO NOT purchase this game if you have a dual core CPU.

    Rated on April 15, 2008 by InaneBasura

    If you do you will find that you're practically unable to play the game due to it somehow being incompatible with more recent CPU's, making the game run at approximately 20 times the intended speed. A...

    Saving the world... or just the reputation of this game. Both a just cause.

    This game actually wasn't that bad. Sure it could have been longer maybe the improve the vehicle physics. But it was fun. If you play the game and get past the first few cut scenes it gets better. Spe...

    There no too much to say about it.... Just play and enjoy! The combine of powers, melee attacks and guns is perfect for anyone who likes action! Lots of weapons, while every weapon has 2 modes and 5...

    Advent Rising offers a frantic and loveable fighting experience, alongside a underappreciated storyline.

    Rated on June 04, 2007 by Lyon85

    It's hard to ignore the negative reviews Advent Rising has received. For a long time it was these reviews that stood between me and the game. It was a joyous day when I chose to ignore the negative ...

    An Enjoyable Ride

    Rated on June 09, 2007 by dtkt15

    The best aspect of this game is the cool superhuman powers that you acquire as the game progresses. I actually played through this game multiple times to try out the different powers. There is somethi...

    Rated on August 09, 2006 by Bulldawg8879

    Overall Advent Rising has a pretty good storyline which keeps you interested enough to play through it; however, this game has its flaws. First of all it's as if the programmers and everyone who creat...
