Mindjack is a neat concept, I'll give it that. It's a third-person cover shooter that lets you 'jack in' to the minds of not just your enemies, but civilians, robots and vehicles too, allowing you to use them in combat. Unfortunately the game is crippled by such a poor execution as to render the core idea almost pointless.

Let's start with the mind jacking itself. Push R3 and L3 together and out pops your grey matter. The game switches to first-person and you float sluggishly about as a cloud of invasive blue fuzz, before going back inside main character Special Agent Jim because he's the only one that's any good. Yes, you can jack into civilians (that is, randomly generated NPCs who don't seem to register that they're in the middle of a fire-fight) or your co-op partner - the exotically named Becky - but they can't do anything helpful or unique, so why would you bother?

The only useful purpose of mind jacking is for drop-in online co-op. That's right: it's just a gimmicky way of getting other people to partake in your misery. The bland weapons and generic enemies put paid to any possible gunplay fun. Controls are stiff and unresponsive, and getting Jim to snap to cover is like trying to stick two repellent magnets together. As in Resi, you can't run and gun, which means that combat becomes laboured and stodgy. Plus there are stupid design decisions (like the game stripping you of all your weapons at the beginning of each stage) and the sporadic checkpoints mean you have to replay entire levels from scratch. Traipsing through the repetitive, sterile environments multiple times is enough to drive anyone out of their skull.

Oh, and there's a plot too - some claptrap about corrupt governments and evil corporations. All I can suggest is that when Mindjack (almost apologetically) asks you at the end of each level whether you want to continue, don't be afraid to choose 'no'.

By John Clayton III VINE VOICE on 22 April 2011
I honestly don't know what to make of this nonsense. It's rarely a good sign when a Square-Enix game that isn't an RPG of some kind arrives with virtually zero publicity and I'm sure it won't surprise you to hear that Mindjack is no exception to this... but the degree to which the game sucks is actually confusing, as it's so infuriatingly counter intuitive to play and badly put together in addition to being virtually featureless outside of a campaign mode that I could only describe as "Eyes Wide Shut-era Tom Cruise": Clearly desperate for you to care but is ultimately very short and very boring. To make a game this bad, you'd have to be trying to do so on purpose.

The story is some crap about an agent who has to team up with some woman he's investigating to fight their way through a heavily armed security force because he's been framed I think... something about computers and mind control? It was very hard to care and I skipped many of the cutscenes, but from what I recall, you don't actually "control" the main character per-se as much as you control an unseen, disembodied entity that is able to 'possess' the main character or any other character in the vicinity to work through the game as you like, but with the central focus obviously being on the main character's story, with him being AI controlled if you 'leap' into another body. This odd mechanic does have a story relevance to it, but honestly it's so stiffly implemented and badly thought out it might as well not be there, especially seeing as if the main character dies, it's game over even if you're still alive in another body and of course the AI is so useless that the only way for the main character to get through the game is for you to be in constant control of him.

Conceptually Mindjack is genius. The setting is futuristic, the graphics are wonderful and you have the ability to take control of other people's bodies to complete the mission. You press both thumpsticks in to come out of your body, then you use the shoulder buttons to scroll through who you want to take control, either a civilian or a mind slave (someone you already took control of).

Remember at the Menu to press Triangle and select any plugins you have unlocked, they can boost health, speed and generally the game much, much easier with them. You start at level 1 and unlock more and more as you head for level 50. I would recommend completing the game first and then going for the achievements when they are unlocked. The achievements can be farmed pretty quickly.

There is online multiplayer, a person can join your campaign game (you can switch this off at setup at the main menu) and can either assist you through your story (blue team) or take control of the enemy ai one at a time (red team). Every win or loss gets recorded and this can unlock further achievement's.

Grade: A - Sadly this game will get no sequel as the critics panned it and people believed the sour reviews. I believe people should support new IP's that offer new experiences and change the way we think and play games.
