This Macintosh offering from Philips looked promising in many ways--including fantastic performance directly from the CD-ROM. However, the several "nuisances" that cropped up throughout took away from the game. Philips should be proud of this Mac title in that it represents a successful way of providing the same product to both platforms on one CD-ROM. With its original hard-core rave soundtrack, challenging puzzles, surreal-futuristic 3D environments, and a movie-like story-line, Burn:Cycle should satisfy most Blade Runner fans and Sci-Fi enthusiasts. However, if you are looking for shoot'em up action and arcade-like gaming, you might want to skip this one.

As mentioned previously, the game does have an interesting storyline but the graphics don't exactly make you want to play for an extended period. Any excitement the game generates is lost when you must rest your aching eyes and head. Interesting game, bad execution.
This is one of those action/adventures in which the action is so perfunctory it feels tacked on. Oh, here come the bad guys. Bang bang bang. No problem. Oh, here come some fragmenting meteorites. Bang bang, no problem. I can't imagine a real action fan being satisfied by the action in this game, but since I'm an adventure weenie, it didn't bother me at all.
