The Story Line

As an elite American Psi-operative working for the government agency known as Mindgate, you must infiltrate and destroy the resistance (terrorist organization ran by your ex-general).

Kill the former Mingate agents and the small army of soldiers they have assembled.

Hunt down your former general, and oh yeah, kill some more enemy soldiers


The game play

Very nice

Smooth controls

Easy to learn (in game tutorials)

However it is rather difficult to aim the psi and in some ways the TK (Telekinesis) ability can be less than useful

Most of the time, it all works together well

    Oh I get it so if you save at a certain check point , a critical part of the game doesn’t work. Ridiculous!

    C’mon! did they forget to play the game in the testing process?
