3.0 out of 5 stars 3 1/2 stars for a good, fun game. November 5, 2003
By A Customer
Pros:
The advanced cover system is a great addition to shooter games.
Nice array of weapons. (Some have a faster rate of fire, some more accurate at long distance,etc.)
AI is good as enemies work well together to try to flank, overrun, and surround you. (Watch out for snipers)
The actual combat is well done. Bullets and explosives are at a premium so, you can't just blast everything endlessly. Enemies take wounds "realistically". (i.e. limp, crawl, hop on one foot, panic, etc.) The graphics during combat aren't as sharp as some games but, the attention to detail is good though. Rocks fly and
walls chip. You see tracers occasionally and bullets can richochet off metal at times and hit you even while covered.
Even normal mode is tough and challenging. Nothing is just a walk through.
Cons:
While the cover system is great, occasionally you have trouble aiming at enemies and have to readjust to hit what should have been an easy target.
To activate the sniper system you have to click the right thumb stick and this can be a pain as you have to hit the thumbstick just right. Then, when your shooting in 3rd person you sometimes move the thumbstick just right and here comes the sniper mode.
You can recover from this pretty fast or just shoot in sniper mode but, they should have just made the select button the on/off.
Maybe I'm missing something but, I've yet to be able to play my own downloaded music in the background rather than the games'.
This is a mainstay with XBOX.
Overall this is a pretty good, straight forward game that I would like to see others learn from and improve upon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun, been playing it non-stop November 30, 2003
By A Customer
Rented this game over the Thanksgiving holiday and have been playing it non-stop for several days. In a word; GREAT! Love it. If you like First Person Shooters (FPS) then you will like this game. The ability to crouch down behind boxes and walls while you lean out into a corridor will leave you wondering why it took so long for somebody to think of this feature. No more standing out in the corridor getting shot, no sirreeee. Just stand up against the corner, hold the left trigger, lean out and around the corner and engage enemy. This feature does not make you invincible, but does cut down your profile, and hence risk of getting shot. I hope other games in the future will make use of this feature. Sometimes aiming in crouch mode is difficult as noted in other reviews.
There are medi-pacs available to restore health, but there are well spaced out and you will soon learn to `hoard' them if you-don't-absolutely-need-one-now. Same thing goes with ammo. If you are heavy on the trigger finger then you will soon find yourself running low on bullets, and this will entail you running around the way you came looking for more dropped ammo.
The controls are pretty easy to use and are very Halo-like in layout.

4.0 out of 5 stars The REAL Fast and the Furious December 1, 2004
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Kill.Switch is not a bad game at all. It reminds me of the Bruce Willis platform game Apocalypse. In fact it is probably one of the best 3D Platform shoot `em ups you can get your hands on. You play Bishop, a sort of Metal Gear Solid's Solid Snake x Splinter Cell's Sam Fisher with more firepower than both combined. In fact that is what kill.switch is - one big free-for-all GUNFIGHT.

The story is actually confusing and told in flashback style (some flashback shots are cinematically realistic). Bishop is an ultra-tech Soldier and who is married to Lynn Takamura - a Neural Interface designer for some weapons tech firm. Bishop was supposed to execute a terrorist called Archer but failed. Archer came back to kill Lynn and to take control of Bishop's neural technology sending him about the globe committing terrorist acts of violence. Eventually Bishop finds a way out from Archer's control and goes to take Archer down himself.

Having said all of that, the gun fighting is first rate stuff simply because the enemy AI is the best seen in any game of its kind. The enemy is smart and moves accordingly. They will take you down by flanking you or sending a grenade in your direction. One or two hits are all it takes and you will go down. So you need to use the environment and this is where kill.switch scores in aces. As you hide behind something you can blind fire on the enemy with several different weapons to choose from or you can lean around the side, sight someone and shoot them. The detail in each level makes this one an essential purchase for the XBOX user. It pushes the PS2's graphics quite a bit (now and again the FPS stalls).

So kill.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ghost Recon without back-up. October 30, 2003
By A Customer
This game is pretty basic. Imagine Ghost Recon without any other soldiers on your side. You have a fair choice of weapons but no spiffy toys like, night vision or infrared devices. You have to recognize your weapons by a small picture to know what you are using, though it doesn't really make a difference. The sniper rifle is useless as well as one silenced HK5. The story just kinda drops you into play with no intro and you slowly piece things together although after completing the game I am still a little fuzzy! But if you like straight tactical combat you should like this. The cover system is not what I expected but decent. And the AI is nothing special. Fairly short game with about 12 hours to complete.

This is a very nice shooter with some interesting options, like blindfire. Although blindfire doesn't work that well it is fun to do once in awhile. Read more
