This review got me to look up the game. It does seem to have been mostly forgotten (except that this year a sequel supposedly went into production; a rail shooter) and, judging by your review, for good reason. Your detailed description of your play-through was just painful for any survival horror fan to read. Like a bad mix of Indigo Prophecy and Resident Evil.

Note to gamers: when someone shoots you in the face, they aren't "gay." They are "psychopathic."

Yeah, Blue Stinger has this weird campy vibe, but it's not even on the same level of camp you see in games like Indigo or Deadly Premonition. Here, it's just really jarring. Thanks for reading, too. Was a bit worried I went a little overboard with the details, but at the same time, I felt it was needed to really show just how bad the game gets.

And a sequel? How dreadful... hope it's only just rumor talk. Or at least gets canceled.

Edit: then again, even if the sequel sucks, it'll still likely be much better than this game.

I bought my Dreamcast after it'd died so I basically went to Zellers and picked up every bargain bin game I could find. This was one of them. I tried to like it, but it was pretty bad.

But not as bad as Slave Zero.
