Prophecy Reviewed at IGN Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

Eric Watkins noticed that IGN has published their Prophecy Advance review. I've been anxious to see how they'd actually rate the game since they were the ones to initially give it the Technological Excellence award. Their article is part of the IGN subscription service, so we'll just summarize it a bit. Overall they believe the hardware limited the presentation of the game, giving it a mere 5 and 6 out of 10 rating for Presentation and Sound. They criticize the text driven story and lack of variation, though personally I'm enthralled with the Midway rooms and inflight speech. Graphics received an 8 while GamePlay and Lasting Appeal received 7's. Their overall rating was a 7. I think this is a pretty fair review, and if you think like me in terms of presentation, it'd be a bit higher. Even if you're not an IGN subscriber, you can read the first part of the article here.
