Chairman Mao Zedong wrote in his essay "On contradiction" that there is a big gap between theory and practice that needs to be solved through better understandment of historical materialism. Here is a good illustration of Mao's theory :

Theory :
Half-Life + Deus Ex + Ambition = New Masterpiece in the FPS Genre

Practice & Result :
Half-Life + Deus Ex + Parallax Art Studio = An FPS that suffers from bad art & level design and poor gameplay mechanics

Conclusion :
If you're about to make a game that tries to be Half-Life and Deus Ex don't design the futuristic universe with fluorescent colors that make everything looks cheesy as if the product was a toy made for 3 years old child. Also, robotic behavior should only apply to robots and not humans : ubermensch punishing and unforgiving shooting skill, no pain reaction, bad voice over -- who came up with these ideas in the first place?!

That said, I am the one responsible...
what was I expecting from a developer who made Liquidator (2006) and Utopia City (2006)...

This game is trash, but the terrible voice acting and cut scenes are great. I recommend either watching videos of those or activating god mode and breezing through the terrible gameplay. Instructions here: http://www.gamewinners.com/Cheats/index.php/Exodus_From_The_Earth

Since Exodus From the Earth is on sale once again, I guess it would only help people's decision out if I posted this. The moment that you start playing, the first thing you'll notice is how bland the graphics are and how bad the voice acting is. To it's credit, however, it came out almost six years ago, but the voice acting goes unexcused. So it's only right to give it the benefit of the doubt and ignore first impressions. Unfortunately, that's the least of the game's problems.

What I noticed throughout is how odd the audio is. For some reason, there's this small static that occurs and it's more noticeable when you're wearing headsets. After a while, I got over it, but then comes another problem. Pressing the "Esc" key to go to the menu will play another song. Unfortunately, this song will interrupt the game's current music and continue to play after exiting back. Which is a shame, cause it can ruin the environment of your current mission when you want a break. Not to mention it can get tiring to listen to a bland voice making a "dramatic" speech. As well as having that speech play over soldiers shooting at you.

The gameplay is generic. It's the typical First-Person Shooter genre you would expect, but I have some issues. In many instances, the enemies have abnormally accurate weapons. I understand that this story takes place in the future, but even on easy mode, I still have to be careful, or I lose a chunk of my health quickly. Exodus also enjoys recycling levels. You'll eventually ask yourself "Wasn't I here before?" And even realize that they recycled a crate depot three times (And you will notice it, as it is just a complex maze.) To add on to that, the four last levels on the preview screenshots do not exist in this game so there goes the defense of variety. At least there's vehicle driving, but poor controls somewhat cripple it and only two locations of the game have this. Be warned that you can stuck in several areas, as well. That includes the vehicles and the straight-forward shooting.

The game also has stealth sections. I wouldn't mind and probably have enjoyed it, but because of how poorly programmed it is, scientists will spot you, even when they're a floor above you. You can't stop them, either. Once they try to sound the alarm, killing that man would only grab the guards' attention, anyway. You can always restart through save files to see if you can get through a level without getting caught, but I've tried so many times, that I stopped caring and progressed through brute force. Alerting the guards will welcome you with poor A.I. that won't go through doors to attack you and will even refuse to move at all, so you at least have that advantage.

The story is difficult to follow. And I say this, because the voice acting is so bad and the game is written like a poorly translated script. From what I understand, that is the case as it was made in Russia, but that's still no excuse. Of course, there are even PDAs found throughout the game. Some are translated fine, some have awful typos, and then there are ones that appear to be typed as a joke. Almost like "0mg u guiz g2g 2 dis party in teh office!11!" Very amusing, but the script is still a damn mess. And what do you come to realize the story was all about, once you understand it? A generic plot, really.

To Exodus from the Earth's credit, there's some unique puzzles and challenges that aren't too punishing, such as the last level, that can be fun, but they're not too frequent, either. If you want to try it out of curiosity of a obscure game, go right ahead. But overall, this game had way too many poor design choices and terrible programming mistakes. It's lengthy and difficult, I'll give it that. But it will only make you wish you were playing a better First-Person Shooter.

I enjoy old school FPS, but this game was very frustrating. The recoil is ridiculous, enemies spawn out of nowhere and shoot you from across the map, and it's often confusing as to where to go or what to do. Getting through the game requires constant use of quick-save/quick-load, because you'll constantly die. The only things it has going for it are decent graphics, level design, and game length, but they don't compensate for the awful gameplay. Alpha Prime, Chaser, and Red Faction are better old school FPS.

This game has a good old-time feel to it, however it is so unforgiving that it's more of a chore to play than it is fun. You will find yourself reloading over and over and over just to get through every battle. The enemy keeps popping up from all around you, and only a shot or two is enough to kill you (and they hardly ever miss - even when shooting from places where you can hardly see them because they are so far away).
I like the atmosphere of this game, and I really want to enjoy myself, but it is very frustrating. If you don't mind constant reloading, and you like the old-time FPS games like Chaser and Alpha Prime, then you might want to pick this game up when it's on sale. But, if you don't like to get really frustrated when playing, then you should probably avoid this one, and go with one of the other games in this genre.
