Extinction is another step in the direction of producing games that look like interactive movies. It’s a follower of God of War and Shadow of the Colossus - with all these giant monsters. To defeat them you need to destroy different parts of their bodies. I love this gameplay, and I’m happy that this cinematic mechanics come to the gaming industry more and more often.
Extinction could be much better as it won at many things but the brilliant idea was spoiled by several mistakes.
The concept is great
Extinction mode with one life only is very exciting
The story itself is involving and supported by good graphics and awesome music
The combat is nice too, especially freshened by random campaigns and boss fights
$60 price. Really?!
The campaign is too short (8 hours only)
Maps are too similar
Xandra is annoying
Combo system is not efficient
As a result, the game’s just too expensive for everything it can offer.
