For a company that prides itself on its unique visual style, Adeline appear to have taken a serious step backwards with its latest creation, as Time Commando features some truly grainy backgrounds and jerky camera movements. Stan, his opponents and every other character on screen have been gloriously realised and gouraud shaded with close up views showing plenty of detail. However begin to explore each historically-themed level it becomes evident that either the PlayStation lacks the power to smoothly render each section swiftly enough or else Adeline has had programming problems of its own. My money’s on the latter. Hats off to them for attempting to push the tried-and tested Alone in the Dark formula just that little bit further, but when it comes to intense, 3-D graphical adventures I’m quite happy with my copy of Resident Evil thank you very much.
