You as the player must take the role of Ashley Simms, the protagonist of Twin Sector. Suddenly awakened by the station's security A.I. system O.S.C.A.R., you face the imminent extinction of all other still sleeping survivors due to an unknown failure in the life support system. According to O.S.C.A.R., you are the only person who was able to be woken and therefore the only individual capable of saving mankind.

This game might get bad reviews, but I really enjoy it and just finished my 2nd play-through of the game.
I think this illustrates that you shouldn't listen to reviews, and try games out for yourself if it looks interesting to you and/or an interesting setting/premise.

Specifically some thing I like about the game:

1) Setting and back story about the "surface going to hell" and humanity waiting it out in cryo tubes
2) Texture work, for 2008 the graphics are pretty nice really imo. People also normally complain about this and it being bland, but I think it fits the feeling, setting, and mood of the game
3) The voice acting, a lot of people give it crap, but I actually like it and think it makes things more believable since they sound like regular people not Hollywood heroes.
4) The characters, I really like Ashley, Kevin, and Oscar is very well done

Sadly, preconceived notions probably ruin the game for many people, even if they give it a chance they are going into with the view that it will be a bad game, and then of course they self-fulfill that prophecy because of their negative attitude from the start...

Managed to survive an hour of this game.

Let's get the parts of the game out that I thought were ok:
The graphics - while not state of the art, do not interfere with the game, and set a decent enough mood
Actually, that's about all of the game I think is ok.

Now for the bad:
Voice acting was terrible - computer was neither monotone enough to be a computer ai, nor was it interesting enough to be a normal person's voice. Main protagonist's voice was passable.
Gameplay - ugh, where do I start? The most important part of a game in my opinion is the gameplay. The special powers you have are so integral to the game, but because they were performed so badly, I feel this alone kills the game. I can forgive bad voice acting, bad animations, shoddy sounds, but if the controls suck, even the most common parts of the gameplay suffer. Why should I have to wait for the glove to charge up when I took just as long to power it up in the first place? I gave this game an hour to get used to the controls, but I can't. I really can't play anymore. I play games for entertainment. A little bit of frustration is ok, but not an entire hour of fighting with the controls. I gave this another hour putting up with the controls, but enemies that spawn from nowhere and don't die/hard to kill?

If you got this far, and still don't believe me, you are a sucker for punishment. Go ahead, buy it, play it, pull your hair out, throw that mouse into your monitor, then turn off the computer. Find that book you were meant to be reading, or that movie you bought and never watched yet. Are you feeling better yet?

I got this in a humble bundle a million years ago.

I launched and spawned in the floor.

I restarted and spawned in the floor again.

Thats all.

Twin Sector: Graphics are very Nice, Sounds are good and Music is So So. I found myself wanting to like this game but it is missing something and I'm not sure what that might be without playing it more. It does have a pretty female protagonist Ashley with a cool idea of Glove's that Push or Pull. That remind me of the Portal game's, the dialog was Bad and some of the fall's kill you when it should only hurt or hurt you a little bit. But hey it is a Five buck game that is kind of Fun, at time's. Now down to business I would give Twin Sector a 6 out of 10
