“...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.”

Acerca de este juego

Una leyenda recorre la galaxia: algún día, una raza poderosa y muy inteligente liberará el universo. Se les conoce como Humanos.
Algunos afirman que son mesías. Otros creen que sólo existen en la imaginación de los jóvenes. Los Seekers, no obstante, saben que los Humanos existen y creen que son enemigos que deben ser destruidos. Disfrazados de benévolos exploradores, los Seekers rastrean el universo y erradican las colonias humanas que encuentran. Hasta ahora.
Con la colaboración del galardonado autor de ciencia ficción Orson Scott Card, GlyphX Games ha creado un argumento apasionante que sumergirá a los jugadores en una increíble saga intergaláctica.
El alzamiento de la humanidad ha comenzado...

Uhhh. I don't think this game has aged well...

I played this through a few times on PC a while ago, around the time it came out. I liked it. Kind of cool game. I was never crazy about it. I hated it the first time, but it really grew on me the new few playthroughs. I had a change of heart mostly because I was like, "this game can't be that bad" and when I went back to it, it was good.

Pretty, kind of fun, but it very barely works anymore without some modification.

I still kind of recommend it I guess?

Good game, this is actually the first third person shooter that i played/finished, so we go way way back ^_^.
It's rather sad that the game didn't receive the attention it deserved at the time.
I like to think that this game if it had been perfected over the years would of been able to go toe to toe with the Mass Efect series, maybe even surpasing it.

<SPOILER>

<SPOILER>But unfortunately, we we're left with a big a*s clifhanger for a sequel that will never be made.</SPOILER>

</SPOILER>

I really recomend this game if you're able to look past a few bugs here and there + the outdated graphics.

I got this game on sale, for 1 euro. The game is a fun 3rd person shooter. There's nothing particulary revolutionary about it, but the game gives you new stuff to play around with at a rather rapid pace, as there's a bunch of special powers, each having a special mode when you level them up and every gun also has a special mode when you level it up enough.
I'll tell you something that took me a while to figure out: you press 1 or 2 in order to switch modes for your left, or right weapon/power. Some bosses or monsters require certain powers to kill them, or to kill them quickly, so watch out for that. Try to think of what makes sense and you should make your way through the monsters no problem.
The game doesn't have very many bugs. I'm certain there are some, but after playing the game 5 times over the years I never found any.
I played the game once on Steam, and as you can see (or can't incase I decided to replay it) it took me about 10 hours, on Easy difficulty. It might take you less, or more.
Overall I'd actually rate this game a 9.5/10 because of generic problems with old games, definetly a hidden gem of the videogame industry, rating definetly heavily shifted by nostalgia. I have no idea what someone who never played this before would rate it, certainly lower.

Honestly, you're only going to love this game if you're the sort to become a cult fan of titles. The game has a potentially great story, amazing world opportunity, and is probably the precursor to good telekinetic powers before any Star Wars game ever got it right.

With that being said, it has a huge number of bugs, does not deliver on as much as it tries to, and needed some serious optimization work. If you're willing to deal with those hassles, then go for it, and you may fall in love like I did.

Si te gusta el escritor de ciencia ficción Orson Scott Card, ya tardas en jugarlo. Muchos somos los que estamos esperando la dos partes restantes que completarian la supuesta trilogia, aunque actualmente eso parece bastante dificil que suceda. Gran BSO compuesta por Tommy Tallarico. No es un juego tecnicamente de 10 pero si proporcionará entretemiento durante horas con un buen guión.

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 Alphabet Letter Finding Game 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).

EDIT: Brought to my attention that the contest was an Alphabet finding game. I dont know why I thought it was a Red Crayon.

Good game. It has a great story. Moreover, I think they made the story first and wrapped the game afterwards. It's just linear gameplay but the story makes it up. This thing also has A LOT of cinematics. and I mean A LOT.

There's an unofficial patch that makes the Cinematics better and ADDS more cinematics that was remoeved when they ported it to PC. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you do the patch.

Mechanic--wise, It's your average TPS game. and similar to old TPS games. The BOSSES are a ♥♥♥♥♥ to deal with. I was stuck with ONE boss for 2 HOURS. It sometimes crashes but no big deal.

Rating this one a 7/10.

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.

Advent Rising is a game that I randomly found. I saw many steam reviews saying that it was one of their favourite games of all time. And had a person in my steam friend list who also was super excited about it. So, I recently played the game to find out if it was all nostalgia or if it really is a masterpiece.

You start the game off by getting on to a spaceship and receiving your training. You visit an alien form that warns you of another alien group that is about to attack. When you return to the ship it is under attack and you have to escape. I have to say the first 2 hours of the game really felt boring to me. The gameplay felt like you were just going from room to room killing aliens. The only positive was that you have choices in the beginning. Which you, sadly and strangely, don't have as you continue further into the game.

After those initial 2 hours it finally starts to get interesting. Also your weapons are levelling up and you are unlocking new cool powers (It comes over weird in the story that you randomly unlock new powers though). The game has so many powers and weapons that I haven't been able to try them all out. This may be because you are limited to one weapon or power per hand. Also, I have to say that the end bosses were pretty challenging overall, I wasn't expecting that. The driving sections in the game can become really exciting, except if you have to shoot. In the end the game took me 10 hours to complete on normal difficulty.

The story is pretty well written and had me coming back to the game. I am sometimes amazed that they actually did what they did with the story. I reached a part of the game that made me wish to stop playing, but the story helped me push through it. There are times when the story felt cheesy and cheap (And sadly the not CGI cutscenes looked really poor). It is also obvious that the screenwriting took inspiration from movies popular at the time of the game's release. The game has many slow-motion animations while jumping or finishing an enemy to make it more cinematic. This is pretty cool but after a while it can be really irritating, because you are just waiting for the animation to end.

The sound design of the game sadly feels strangely rushed. There are too many instances to list: The game is missing walking and explosion sounds and there are a lot of other strange audio issues. Such as an NPC having the same voice as the protagonist when they get hit. The soundtrack on the other hand is really great and done by a real orchestra. The Graphics thanks to the style and can look really great, but sadly the textures mostly look bland.
( I had that the game crashed several times, and sadly it never putted me at the last checkpoint. )

I would recommend if you play this game:
To use the Advent Revising Mod
Turn off auto-aiming

Final thoughts:
I think it is sad that Advent Rising is a forgotten game. The game was much too rushed in production and had a boring beginning and ending. However, I still think that if you can accept the complaints there is a great experience to be had in the game.

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.
