From the Manufacturer

Snow-blind

adj: A complete system shutdown of all internal electrical and biomechanical systems, created by an EMP blast or similar electrical disturbance in the local vicinity. Leaves bio-augmented soldiers temporarily vulnerable and totally exposed on the battlefield.

Experience the dramatic intensity of the frontlines of a war through the eyes of the first of a new breed of super soldiers in this gritty and epic first-person action game.

Hong Kong, 2065. 2nd Lt. Nathan Frost is just a regular grunt in an international army called the Liberty Coalition. When he takes massive injuries from an explosion on the battlefield, Frost undergoes the experimental surgery in order to be kept on this side of death. The outcome of the surgery is something more than human; a transformation that makes him a unique weapons-grade warrior, with abilities that far surpass those of the average soldier.

Empowered with these extra-normal abilities via implanted augmentations, Frost is immediately sent to the frontlines of a war as a secret weapon against the destructive regime.

After getting stranded in hostile territory, cut off from command and far outnumbered, Frost and a handful of men must try and stop the entire renegade militia's plan threatening to plunge the world into darkness.

Game Features

  • Engage in battle online multiplayer with up to 16 players and voice over IP support in classic and new multiplayer modes, including some modes exclusive for the PS2 and XB platforms.
  • A wide variety of game pacing ranges from the frenetic chaos of battlefield action to tactical stealth infiltration-style missions.
  • Equip yourself with an arsenal of experimental weaponry such as the Riot Wall, Attack Drones, and other high-tech gadgetry. Used in combination, the equipment yields a variety and depth of gameplay never before realized, especially in multiplayer play.
  • Bolt across firefight war zones on foot or jump into vehicles to run your enemies down. In multiplayer mode, vehicles are cooperatively used; one guy drives while the other mans the mounted turrets.
  • Augmentations such as Invisibility, Reflex Boost, and Electrical Storm give you an edge on the battlefield against your highly equipped and battle-ready foe.
  • Pick up and play, visceral action pulls the player through a cinematically immersive storyline from minute one of play.
  • 11 missions spanning 16 maps including the opera house turned prison, a Buddhist temple converted to a military base, and the sprawling urban wastelands.

4.0 out of 5 stars Computer quality in a console port April 21, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Graphics : Sweet. Gameplay : difficult at first, but once you understand the control scheme, you quickly get the hang of the rest. Incredible particle effects. Very well done music. Replayability : moderate to none. That's the only downside. The game has good length, and a fun idea as a plotline. But, there are not too many twists and turns plotwise, so that pulls quite a bit away from re-playability. This ran well with the minimum specs on my system : AMD XP 2800 -- 512 MG DDR RAM -- 128 MG GeFORCE 4 5600. For the sheer shooting power of the game, i would recommend it. But, don't expect extreme depth in the gameplay. Just a good bit of fun.

2.0 out of 5 stars A poor console port April 5, 2005
If you are a true PC player, don't get your hopes up with Project Snowblind. No words describe PSB better than "a console port". The single player offers a basic shoot'em up for a few hours, the graphics and movement make you feel like you are playing Halo on Xbox. The barely given two stars are solely for the basic single player story although I really considered giving just one. Although the sp may be mediocre, the multiplayer is a complete disaster. I am a keen online player myself and have tested numerous fps games during the last decade, including e.g. CS, CS:CZ, CS Source, UT, UT2k3, TO, RTCW, JK2, SoF2, DX, just to mention a few. PSB is honestly one of the worst I've seen because it has been designed for console platform in the first place, then hastily ported on PC and trust me, it shows.

To illustrate, the game is a kind of slow Halo/UT2003 mix with console style graphics and feel. The physics modelling is not very convincing. Menus are rigid. The futuristic atmosphere suffers from cheesy pseudo-techno clichés like a robotic female voice commenting on your bioenergy reserves etc. Although Eidos has put some effort into extra stuff such as player stats on the Snowblind site, any basic and really important features that an online player would be used to in other (real) PC fps games, such as toggling developer console, seeing your ping or a 'talk' button for messaging, are screaming their own absence. The reason is obvious; you don't really do anything with a talk button when you are playing with a joypad, do you? No patch whatsoever can save a game which is so fundamentally foul considering what PC at best could really deliver. PSB looks so bad because PC players are used to better.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average Shooter Compared To Other Games September 5, 2005
This ain't a bad game, but it is subpar when compared to Doom 3, Riddick, Far Cry, Swat4, Brothers-in-Arms and Half-life2. Don't get me wrong, its a fun game. It just doesn't compare to other new shooters out there. I even like Area 51 better than this, and these graphics remind me of games 2 years ago. Wait for F.E.A.R. coming out in October, or get one of the other games mentioned earlier. The only upside to this game is the budget price of $10 you can get it out, but thats because its a disappointment like Pariah. It just doesnt deliver the punch that these other games do.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great little game May 26, 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I was not expecting much when I installed this game, but I was pleasantly surprised. Do not expect Half-LIfe series quality, but the story is very interesting as you take on a bio-body and wield a ton of super-cool weapons with awesome sound effects.

If you like First Person Shooters, you will like this game. When I was playing it, I was reminded of my old "Doom" days - and all that fun.

One negative: the game crashed 4 time for me on XP. I found this usually happened when the "bio-shield" is selected on you special enhancement category indicator. It just does not like some graphics drivers, even the latest ones. Eidos has stated they will not put out a patch. It is a little late for that now.

If you want to read a great action story based on Historical fact, read Black Triangle

5.0 out of 5 stars very sweet May 13, 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
i guess Eidos wanted to make a Deus-Ex type of game that everyone can play. just think of a pure action arcade type of Deus-Ex on steroids. great graphics, awesome effects, solid gameplay, all right storyline (i just want to kill stuff though) amirite? great selection of weapons and augmentations too. you can drive vehicles in some levels as well as take over some robots and mechs to switch up the gameplay style a bit so it never gets old and is always fresh. the squad A.I that you fight alongside with is ok. at least one guy will follow you at all times to clear out buildings and the rest will cover-fire. the cutscenes in-game are filled with action and movie style camera angles. if you like partial open-ended fast paced sci-fi shooters, this is for you.

3.0 out of 5 stars A competent Half-Life knockoff June 9, 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I found this game to be an enjoyable Half-Life knockoff. The most notable thing about the game is that it seems to have every weapon ever used in an FPS and you get to carry all of them at the same time. LOL!

Graphics were decent, but contrast seemed low compared to most other games. Adjusting it only seemed to make everything dark.

Also included in this game are bio-enhancements that give the player the ability to see through walls, slow down time, shield himself from attack, and become invisible. I used this capability sometimes, but probably not as much as I should have.

The most irritating thing about this game is that it doesn't have a traditional manual SAVE function. It has checkpoints that are sometimes spaced quite far apart. There are rooms you can go to to save your game, but they are not a good substitute for manual or quick saves. In any case, instead of automatically saving your game when it gets to a checkpoint (and even between levels), it asks you first. I've never seen that in a game before.

There were some vehicles at one point, but the game was mostly played on foot. Enemies consisted of soldiers and various bots, including spider bots that attacked in numbers.

Overall, I found the game to be enjoyable, although somewhat short. Graphics and environment were about average for a 2005 game. Having all the weapons was fun, if unrealistic.

The game did crash a couple times, closing and going back to Windows, but nothing terribly serious happened and it didn't happen enough to be an annoyance. I just restarted it and picked up at the last saved game. Incidentally, I am running Vista x64.

For the $2.55 (plus shipping) price I paid (new from an Amazon third party merchant), I found this game to be well worth the cost and good for about 10-15 hours of fun.

3.0 out of 5 stars It was fun to play!
Out of 100 games collection, it's not in the top 15, but I have sort of fond memory about it. I had fun, anyway. It's not that much fun as you won't buy it if it's $30 or more. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars OK game, there are better
The game has a weak story line and it doesn't allow saves at any time, so I ended-up replaying the same scenario, until I got bored and deleted the game off my computer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun but old
Its a fun game but the main problem is that its too old. There is rarely anyone playing it online. The single player mode is pretty fun but thats about it.
