Eve of Extinction Review
Eve of Extinction is obviously a game that seems more catered to people new to the action/adventure genre. As more experienced gamers goes, it's a piece of crap. It's not for everyone, but it's not exactly an acquired taste.
The graphics on this game are bland at best. Think about it, their hair is the most detailed thing in the entire game and that's not saying much. The levels themselves look almost identical, aside from the jungle/forest level, making navigation very difficult. As far as graphics go, I've seen worse, but I have also seen alot better.
This is one of the games two weakest points. Fighting involves very little, if any, strategy. You see enemy, WAP WAP WAP, enemy gone. The weapons ''leveling up'' is a joke. At level 1 you can only swing or them one time, then at level 2 it's a two-hit thing and so on up. The result is very frustrating fighting at times. The camera is also a joke. I found holding down buttons all the way through levels just to get through it. I found the Legacy Drive to be kind of cool at first, but once you get used to it the thrill is gone. The boss fights, aside from the last one, are so easy it is almost a sin. That all changes when you get to the last boss, it almost turns into a legit game, almost. Having one good boss in a sea of bad one does not make a good game.
This is the game's other major weakness. The voice-acting is worse than the original Resident Evil, if you can imagine that. Josh's favorite phrase seems to be ''Give me a break'' because he says throughout the game every chance he gets. The music only comes out during cutscenes and when you have enemies around. Other than that it is complete silent, which I almost prefer to the awful techno music that does play.
Overall: 2.5/10 (Averaged)
Like I said, I believe this would be perfect for beginning beginner gamers that need an introduction to the whole action/adventure genre of gaming. However this is definitely not for more experienced gamers that are looking for a challenge because this game does not offer one at all. On whether to rent or buy this game, I would definitely say to rent first because this is one of those games where you either love it or hate it even more so than Glitter, lol.
