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.

Trotz teurer Lizenz kann Gremlin die tolle Story der Men in Black nicht in ein adäquates Game umsetzten, das es mit Capcoms Produkten aufnehmen kann. Das größte Manko ist auf jeden Fall der Kampf. Via Knopfdruck kommt Ihr in den Kampfmodus, jedoch könnt Ihr Euch hier nicht schnell genug drehen, um auf die Gegner zu reagieren. Meist seit Ihr noch beim Ziehen der Waffen, wenn der Gegner schon bei Euch ist und Euch eins überbrät. Die Rätsel sind vielfältig, und bieten mehr als altbackene Hausmannskost, Für einen positiven Eindruck sorgt auch die Größe der Levels. Immer wieder lassen sich neue Räume und Gänge finden, die ein weiteres Geheimnis bereithalten. Ein Probespiel vor dem Kauf kann aber nicht schaden.
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...
