Mulder and Scully travel to the small Rocky Mountain town
of Red Falls to investigate a string of unusual murders linked
to ghost sightings, the undead, and other paranormal phenomena.
The FBI agents then pursue an inhuman killer to a secret research
facility in the Siberian wasteland and finally into the depths
of a buried alien spacecraft. If they survive, they will unravel
the mystery of the black oil and prevent the alien colonisation
of the planet... for now...
X-Files: Resist or Serve is a really pleasant surprise
- a TV tie-in game that is actually very good. And what is
even more remarkable is the ridiculously low £20 price
best way of describing X:Files: Resist and Serve is
to imagine what a game would be like if you took all the best
elements of Resident Evil and Silent Hill and
then threw Mulder and Scully into the mix.
game is set during the shows seventh season and is split into
three interwoven episodes created by the Executive Producers
of The X-Files. The game features authentic X-Files
characters, music and storyline, voice-overs by David
Duchovny, Gillian Andersen and the rest of the original cast,
as well as unique DVD-style bonus material containing exclusive
commentary and interviews.
this is not a "finish it in an afternoon" game and
will provide many hours of entertainment. My only real moan
is that there was no attempt to make the player jump out of
their skin - and there is ample opportunity. Every now and
again you will hear some eerie music when you enter a room
and see a corpse, or some other creepy object, but this is
not really jumpy, and 9 times out of 10 the music is cued
wrong, so you hear it a few seconds after you see the object,
or a few seconds before the camera angle shifts to let you
that brings up another niggle I had with the game - the camera
angles. Like Resident Evil, they are static, and this
proves difficult when you are moving around. Suddenly the
camera changes angle and you are a little disoriented and
more often than not will end up moving your character back
the way you have come without realising it.
they are little moans, and certainly won't spoil your enjoyment
of a well conceived horror game. Not
only do you get a cracking game, but there are loads of extras
to be unlocked - these consist of interviews and featurettes
about the game and are actually rather entertaining.
you are an X-Files fan, or a fan of this genre of games,
you need this in your collection. Destined to become a classic,
and certainly one of the most authentic series tie-in games
I've ever seen.
