“...has a lot to offer in terms of gameplay, story, and sound...it brings original ideas and a good dose of personality to a genre that often focuses too much on just shooting people in the face.”

Over dit spel

Het is een algemeen bekende legende in het sterrenstelsel dat een machtig, buitengewoon intelligent oud ras ooit het universum komt bevrijden. Ze worden Humans genoemd.
Sommigen beweren dat ze de verlosser zijn. Anderen geloven dat ze alleen bestaan in de verbeelding van de jongeren. Maar de Seekers weten dat de Humans echt bestaan en zien ze als vijanden die moeten worden vernietigd. Onder het mom van goedwillende ontdekkingsreizigers kammen ze het universum uit en vernietigen elke kolonie Humans die ze tegenkomen. Aan jou om daar een einde aan te maken.
In samenwerking met de bekroonde sciencefictionschrijver Orson Scott Card heeft GlyphX Games een boeiende verhaallijn ontwikkeld die de spelers in een onvoorstelbare intergalactische saga stort.

Take part Mass Effect, part Halo, and throw in a dash of Star Wars and you get Advent Rising. This is the utmost praise, however, as Advent Rising is a fantastic game. It is clear that Mass Effect borrowed heavily from this game as the Geth seem to be ripped straight from it. The fiction behind the story is some of the most engrossing sci-fi I've seen in a while, which is no surprise since it was written by Orson Scott Card.

The gameplay is third-person, with the use of guns and special powers. The guns do feel really nice, but I found myself using the powers more often, especially in the later game. The level design is superb as well, and I never felt lost, even in some of the bigger environments.

The game is not without it's faults, however. Consulting PC Gaming Wiki is a must for essential fixes, but I still had a fair number of issues. There were graphic anomalies when things got intense and there were lots of explosions. cutscenes would sometimes hicup as well, although the dialogue did not skip. The most annoying thing were the game crashes which happened a handful of times. Thankfully, the game saved at the exact point of the crash so nothing was lost, but still annoying.

Iffy port aside, this game is fantastic. It really is a shame we will probably never see the planned sequels as this game builds a very promising lore and world around it. It's certainly worth playing, just know that it will probably never get a proper finale.

Overrated game if you read other review websites. You can play fine unlike many of the older games(used Windows 8).

The screenshots fools you into thinking this game has some space battles, including the intro start of the game. Don't be fooled, this is not a "Space sim game". This is a third person shooter game. The screenshots are hover vehicles in land/volcanoe battle. If you are looking for a Space sim game this is not your type of game.

There are no secret to unlock for this game so you don't really have to be bother to play highest difficulty or looking for secrets. There are much better games than this during 2003 since its release. The only good thing about this game is the fighting system and skill perks which made this game unique for its time. It might disappoint some people as this is just a generic third person shooter with a good story and gameplay.

Should I recommend this to people? Maybe. I've been waiting to play this game so long since 2005, and after beating this game. It isn't a bad game, but, the gameplay didn't age that well. It kind of disappointed me. I was too hoping for a mix of space sim due to the screenshots.

Beware buyers: There are two endings for this game depending who you save at the very first mission. The real last mission happens after the credits scene. So do not expect that you have finished the last mission after the credit scene starts. This happened to me and most likely everyone else who bought this game.

Extremely enjoyable third-person action-adventure game, involving space, alien worlds, super powers and a great soundtrack. Kinda like a Star Wars Jedi Knight game, but without the lightsaber. Shame it didn't sell well, the worst thing about the game is that it ends with a cliffhanger and we will never see how it continues.

One of my most favorite games, sadly ended with its first chapter because of a stupid Red Crayon in the Xbox. Storyline is fantastic (Star Wars meets Halo), Combat is fun (slightly reminescent of 3rd person Unreal/Halo mix). It is a little Glitchy but still stable enough to play.

I do recommend getting the Advent Revising UnOfficial Patch that fixes video playback (especially on Vista/7 or higher).

One of my favorite games ever. Originally played it on the Xbox when it was first released, and have been waiting for a sequel ever since.

This isn't the greatest port ever made, but that doesn't detract too much from the experience. Framerates will sputter no matter how overspec'd your computer is, but the story is incredible, and the combat system never gets old. Worth every minute.
