A terrible game in 498 words. Man, I've heard this game just sucks.

I hope its used as a stepping stone to transplant the idea into a better game but, as is, it's impossible to recommend.

See, I can leave you feedback for this because this is only like two paragraphs long. =D

I suppose the review does its job well enough. I mean, I get that the voice acting blows, the graphics blow, the AI blows and pretty much everything else about it blows. However, it still feels lacking; like it could've used examples or something. Still, I know you're rushed with everything you need to do, and really, if you dom't have much to say about a game, then you don't have much to say about a game. lol Sometimes it's better to just go short and leave it at that. It still functions well enough as is.

Haha. I am curious to see what your Brevity title will be. I still think it's hilarious that this just happened to come out as short as it did.

Anyway, back to work for me! I need to have this paper done by Wednesday and I have barely a page. Awesome!

Sweet short review, Emp.

I always wondered about this game. I wonder no longer.

I think you meant "implementation" in this sentence:

It’s almost heartbreaking to watch the genuinely good ideas get dog piled by poor implication.

Thanks for that catch, Marc. I only went back to this review the other day to try and bulk it out with the screens, so it's funny you fell upon it now. Good timing -- and thanks for reading.

I've only just read this, because I saw the game on sale for next to nothing. Pretty good review. Although it's short, I think in this case there was no need for it to be longer.

One gripe though: two generations ago? Really? Really?

It may look rubbish, but it doesn't look PS1 levels of rubbish. (People declaring that something looks "last gen" when it clearly doesn't is a pet peeve of mine.)

I was about to say that seeing the game in motion (especuially the FPS sections; admitedly, the overhead strat section isn't as bad) is exactly what I said it was, and to keep in mind that most screens on the 'net are those issued by the developers in a view to make their game look its very best, but that screen works just as well. There are better looking PSX games than the screen you posted.

The last PSX game I played was C-12. I can say, hand on heart, it's a better looking game than Raven Squad.

Reaaaaaaaally?

I really don't see it.

Anyway, that's beside the point. Good review. :p

If this is a clever ploy to get me to reply C-12, well, it's kinda working.

I wonder where it is...

EDIT: I still sometimes make fun of that line from the opening:

"What am I facing?"

"CYBORGS! And! ALIENS!"

Oh my.

Aha! I'm onto you. You can't fool me. =P

I may reread this now that you put pics in. But then, maybe not. xP
