Description official descriptions

In the future, aliens invade the Earth in an attempt to harvest its carbon resources. Only the remains of Earth's military are left to save humanity. The player takes control of Lieutenant Riley Vaughan, a cybernetically enhanced human soldier and member of the underground resistance, whose mission is to thwart the aliens' plans and save the planet.

C-12: Final Resistance is a 3D third-person shooter somewhat similar to Duke Nukem console installments. The protagonist explores ruined cities, killing aliens and their cyborg assistants, while completing tasks such as restoring power to the subway system to progress further into the game. A sniping ability allows the protagonist to attack enemies from a distance, zooming in for a precise shot.

One of my favourite PlayStation 1 games, C-12!

The Good
I love all futuristic science fiction shooters (such as Time Splitters 3, etc.), and this one is one of my "classics", and a great title for the PlayStation. The graphics weren't exactly perfect, but they were good enough. The gameplay and mechanics of this game are simply awesome, and the plot highly compliments it. A great arsenal of weapons and detailed (well, detailed for the PlayStation) locations were good. One great feature was the cybernetic implant, which you could use to scan, locate, identify your prey, and give you their vital stats and distance. The epic journey through the vast levels is also enjoyable.

The Bad
As I said above, the graphics aren't perfect. And... Well, apart from the lack of Full Motion Video movies (which I think would have been so much better than the average-quality cutscenes), the graphics are the only thing that needs improving. I also remembering that when I played it last time, the game glitched and crashed my console numerous times, but that may be just my console or game.

The Bottom Line
If my memory serves me right, I think this game was once awarded "adrenaline soaked game of the year" for the PlayStation, from the UK version of the Official PlayStation magazine, and in my opinion, that's exactly what C-12 is, and i'm surprised other magazines / websites didn't name it "game of the year". If you find this game cheap, you're in for a definite treat (did that rhyme?).
