Thats where the fun ends however. Im not sure about P.C users but on the xbox myself and my friends who play xbox live found this game an utter disapointment.
Over all the single player game feels ok, a little rushed in places, most enememies react the same all the way through the games various (samey) environments.
Weapons feel highly underwhelming and although the ability to upgrade each weapon seems like a good idea, it only really makes the somewhat weak rocket launcher feel better.
Vehicles handle the same, whether they hover, have 3 or 4 wheels, or way 10 tonnes.
Map maker has limited options which is shame as this seemed like a great idea.
online play is fun for an hour with some friends, but gets boring very quick with the very limited match options.
Final verdict, steer very clear of this one, stick with Halo 2 and Unreal championship 2!
On first playing the game the control system felt smooth and easily identifiable. The graphics where tidy, no real visible faults until we introduced a second player into the game for co-op play. I have always been a fan of this and when we got going it was good fun blowing people into the air with the grenade launcher, but we did notice a severe slow down in game speed and graphics, a slight lagging effect was clear in the game as the game struggled to cope with the different movements of the games. This was the first of a few niggles that came up.
The second was the lack of story line. Random characters, conversations and general thoughts really ruined the game. It was enjoyable even with the lack of smooth graphics but when the cut scenes came up i really lost interest.
The last problem was the bosses, there were two obvious bosses that came up in the game, neither of which really caused any great deal of trouble and were far to close together.
This is a good game and i think that the next game that is made by the developers could be one of the finest that i will play, unfortunately this game really has no lastability and so will be completed in hours rather than days and will be sitting on your shelf soon after.
Renting this title would be my advice cause it certainly is worth playing as the weapon mods are very nice and fun to try out on your unsuspecting enemy. Play this game alone also and maybe switch between cut scenes rather than playing co-op. The lagging graphics are not the only niggle as the AI seems unaware there are two of you and so player two can often just walk up to enemies and blow them to pieces in comical fashion!!
The graphics are fairly good, but the Xbox seems to struggle a little. Credit to the developer(s), there are some very nice set-pieces and visual effects to be found. However, the graphics are the highlight of the game in my opinion, everything else is either slightly flawed or broken.
The story makes no sense what so ever, and as a result it means the game doesn't pull you in and you don't care about who you're shooting or saving... because you don't really know who your shooting or saving! You will find yourself in what looks like a massive 3-way battle/war at one point and you just kill everybody, and you don't even know who ANY of them are!!! Whoever wrote the story for this game (Hollywood scriptwriters apparently) did a very poor job. Bottom line; You're in outer-space, you are a man with a gun who keeps crashing his spacecraft, you are helping a woman who has a virus (or something) and you have caught it too, and you shoot random people.
Pariah's weapons are underwhelming, I only really liked the machine gun and grenade launcher. The rest of the weapons are a bit dull or just don't work very well. The rocket launcher in particular is dire, I've lost count of the number of times I've watched my rocket fly straight through the target and explode somewhere in the distance.Read more ›

Pariah is a decent game with good graphics and a long lifespan.
Although the weird thing is the guns are huge. Read more
