Worth Playing (Oct 09, 2007)
I know that this review consists mostly of negative commentary, and it must seem as though I hated every second of it. This isn't true. Yes, there are many things that could have been done better, but in all honesty, Instinct is nowhere near the worst FPS I've ever played. While there are many things it does poorly (scripting, bland play and the .exe has a strange habit of crashing every time you exit the game under Windows Vista), there are many things it does well (voice acting, a story that is engaging and it has an excellent soundtrack).

Instinct ist Langeweile pur. Nur wenige Male ist es überhaupt möglich sich zu erschrecken, was für einen Horrorshooter die größte Pleite überhaupt darstellen muss. Verantwortlich hierfür ist unter anderem die Zensurkeule, die gnadenlos und ohne Rücksicht auf Verluste geschwungen wurde. Problematischer ist jedoch das monotone Leveldesign und die kaum greifbare Story. Oder kann mir jemand erklären, was der 09.11.2004, als eine große Explosion in Yanggang selbst von Satelliten aus gesehen wurde und Experten einen Atombombentest der Koreraner vermuteten, mit Zombies zu tun hat? Hier wurde offensichtlich ein reales Ereignis genommen um authentisch zu wirken und anschließend mit Horrorelementen gemischt - ohne Erfolg. "Große Schnitte, kleines Spiel - Eine Enttäuschung für Horrorfans.

Несъедобный "купи меня скорее!"-шутер от украинских романтиков, тщетно пытающихся доказать всему цивилизованному миру, что и на территории бывшего СССР можно вырастить приличный экшен.

Так вот, «Инстинкт» очень ясно дает понять, чей талант превратил You Are Empty из второсортного клона Half-Life в пропитанную густой атмосферой антисоветскую постановку. Оставленные без творческого лидера, бывшие соратники Мандельштама сработали игру, которая сегодня смело может претендовать на звание LADA Racing Club от мира российских шутеров.
GameSpot (Sep 10, 2007)
Instinct is a Resident Evil rip-off with a first-person perspective that's a good 10 years too late for the party. This creation of the aptly named Russian developer Digital Spray Studios has more problems than just copying the story and bad guys from a game with a best-before date that expired in the 1990s. Everything here is ineptly made and annoying, from the dumb zombie foes to the terrible level design. Throw in big performance problems that regularly turn battles into slideshows and you've got yet another atrocity good for a trifecta of crap.
IGN (Aug 27, 2007)
Instinct is hardly "the new face of horror in video games" as the back of the retail box boldly claims. It's a barely stable, wholly generic, and entirely forgettable first-person shooter featuring poorly designed stages, decade-old visuals, and a narrative ripped off the assembly line. It fails to set any kind of tone or relate to the player in any meaningful way, which ultimately means it fails to be frightening. Instead of building character, weaving connections with the player, and introducing conflict to drum up an emotional effect, Instinct just tosses a few cheap scares and shoddy gameplay at you. Unless you desperately need a reminder of how unfulfilling a game experience can be, don't touch this one.
