Absolutely DO NOT BUY THIS GAME! Its not even worth free (I paid $2 for it). I wish I could just take it out of my game lineup completely. Worst port of a game I've ever seen and shouldn't have been made even for an old console.

DON'T BUY!

I got this during a sale for like a dollar. Worst dollar I've ever spent. Terrible controls, insanely stupid plot, just... no. Just no.

EDIT: I fired this game up again just to be sure it was as bad as I remember... and it's far worse. The default controls are WASD for movement, arrow keys for camera movement(which is utterly useless) and VBNM of all keys for jump/use/attack/equip. Just the most ludicrous key layout ever. You CAN change it to use ZXCVB and arrow keys, which is slightly better, but the keys aren't rebindable. Oh, and it doesn't detect your monitor's resolution, and doesn't let you change resolution.

Config menu aside, the game is utter trash. Apparently I'm running around, with cutscenes inturrupting me constantly, in a pseudo-2D world where I can't tell how deep into the screen my character is (which makes attacking enemies impossible). Nothing makes sense, the character animation is awful, the weapons are severely underpowered (And apparently ammunition is limited or something with no ammo pickups anywhere, forcing me to use the awful melee combat system), the level design is mazelike and atrocious... Just no. Give me my money back. If the game was free, I'd play it for five minutes before dismissing it as trash. As it is, it's ludicrous to expect money for this abysmal excuse for a game.

This ♥♥♥♥ing game is a wineskin and crossover emulation, takes two minutes to launch and horrid controls that can't be changed. Voice acting's terrible, the "professor" sounds like he's having an endless voice crack. Models look outdated and freaking terrible like they belong on Bubsy 3D, which is obviously not the aim of the game's textures. However, I give them credit for the map textures.

This is also one of those games that have the pain in the ♥♥♥ "stuck zoomed in on this", where it basically disables the zoom out function on your computer to acess other windows, so if it freezes, you're screwed, you have to reboot the whole computer because CID won't budge.

The fact that this is an emulation is what I can't stand. The developers obviously didn't know how to make an actual port so it runs correctly on Macs and Linuxes. If you wanna make an actual port, buy a Mac or Linux to actually learn how it should work on them.

The storyline, oh my god, as if it wren't more bland. All they're saying is that the world went ballscrazy with safety and that a robot crash dummy was invented. That's it? Why do I see him running through graveyards, volcanoes, and spaceships? I haven't gotten far into it because I already got too bored of this, but why do I see him in such random areas if he's only designed to test safety measures? And if it's a world obsessed with safety, WHY THE HELL ARE SUCH THINGS BEING LETHAL? The cover literally shows him running from a giant robot shooting lasers out of it's eyes, so the plot is misleading.


There is no wonder why this is $2. I'm impressed, I may've found one of the worst games Steam has to offer. I want my $2 back, this was not worth it.
