Trivia

Director John Carpenter, who made the 1982 film of the same name that this video game is sequel to, worked closely with developer Computer Artworks. Such a good time was had all around that Computer Artworks got Mr. Carpenter to contribute his face and his voice for the in-game character of Dr. Shaun Faraday. Perhaps due to SAG considerations, however, the game's end credits only list a special thank-you message for Mr. Carpenter and not a voice actor credit. See more »

Goofs

When the player is in the submarine level, they log on to a computer that mentions "Sean Faraday". However through out the game afterward, his name is spelt "Shaun Faraday". See more »

"We're Gonna Die Here!"
10 December 2002 | by Brain CleanerSee all my reviews

Great game but could have been better. Set some time after the events of the movie, the game sees you as leader of a rescue team trying to work out what happened in the south poll. After going solo to look for the other half of your team the action begins. Finding guns and staying alive is only half the story, you have to find, lead, equip,earn the trust of survivors who then help you out before meeting a bloody end, you must also keep up their moral or they will freak out p*****g their pants or worse, eating a bullet. That is a problem, it feels that there are set times when you squad "has to die so you are forced on alone" and it's annoying, it would have been better with a set team that you have to keep alive from the start. But other than that really, the games good and plays well on lower spec systems, has great pitch battles, out numbered solo fighting, puzzles, great plot and keeps you on your guard all the time...just who in your team is infected?!

8/10

If you like resident evil style games this is for you.
