UFO: Extraterrestrials - Review @ GameShark

by Dhruin, 2007-06-01 23:06:36

GameShark has a review of UFO:ET, with the ordinary score of C+ .  They don't seem too impressed with the idea of a remake and here's a snip:

The truth of the matter is that UFO is too much of an X-COM clone. The genre of the tactical squad based strategy game took off in the mid to late 1990s and when you compare UFO to other games like Warhammer 40K: Chaos Gate, Jagged Alliance, and especially the immensely underrated alien killing game Incubation, this knock-off just doesn’t stack up too well. In fact, Incubation, a game released back in 1998, even looks better than UFO Extraterrestrials. The sound is equally bad with rudimentary effects that add absolutely nothing to the atmosphere. It also wins the award for the worst intro-movie of all time. You simply need to see it to believe just how cornball it is. Even when the goal is to emulate X-COM, there’s just no excuse for these types of things when you want to charge $40. Playing old games of systems gone by is all the rage nowadays…but rarely are you asked to pony up full price.
