I suggest that Gremlin quickly get a cheat code out to allow the opening level to be skipped otherwise I fear many gamers may give up long before reaching the real game. Once past this annoying section MiB opens up into a playable adventure and manages to hold your attention until the next frustration arrives. This is in the Temple of Amazon where you must guide your character over a series of jumps across a number of moving platforms. Once again poor control and an unhelpful viewing angle ruins the flow of the game leaving your character falling from the cliff edge over and over again. Overall Men In Black is worth checking out, although don't expect it to be in the same class as Resident Evil 2... but then what is?

Bizarre, les bons films donnent souvent des mauvais jeux. Bref, ce n'est pas un chef-d'oeuvre.
Targeting and shooting enemies has been horribly implemented and complicates, what should be a straightforward action sequence unnecessarily. To add insult to injury, if one of the badly animated goons or aliens decides to shuffle towards you, a lethargic fisticuffs ensues until one of you dies of boredom. There are only four missions to speak of, including the New York chase sequence at the beginning, but you soon realise that longevity doesn’t play a serious role with Men In Black, because you’ll be reaching for the ‘Off’ button long before the story unfolds. Do yourself a favour and use the Neurolyser on yourself to forget all about this waste of a great licence. Thanks for nothing, guys.

I like that they didn’t retell the movie, but I can’t justify this as a good game – and especially not a good Men in Black game. It’s almost entirely devoid of humor, opting instead for grim, scientific investigation – and that’s a tone that just doesn’t fit. Throw in a mere handful of levels and some pointless puzzles, and you’ve got an adventure that’s worth skipping. I’ll be neuralyzing the experience right out of my memories as soon as I publish this.
C'est au final laid, énervant et inintéressant. Bref, vous pouvez vous en passer...
