I own the game but never got around to beating it. Its pretty dope but I wish I had a manual or something.
Any one play Blade Runner?
"And fuck anyone else who desecrates the sacred name of amazingness that is Blade Runner."Play the game before criticizing it. The game is pretty awesome. Unlike 99% of licensed games, it doesn't try to adapt the events of the movie into a game; it fleshes out and expands the fictional universe. It was ridiculously well done and fairly replayable thanks to how it was randomized. Great use of voxels too, IIRC.
It's sad, but I almost completely ignored it while popping through the Virgin Interactive booth at E3 that year for similar reasons to you (licensed game based on one of my favorite properties? FUCK YOU!). I was really, really glad to be proven wrong. Do yourself a favor and give it a look-see (looks like you can snag it for under $20/shipped on eBay pretty easily). Not sure how easily it'll work on modern PCs (IIRC the shooting segment runs too fast or some such?), but if you're a fan of Blade Runner, you'll love the game.
I love Blade Runner myself, but really. Play the game first, this game is actually one of the adventure games that is worth playing, mostly because how you can impact the story and get different endings, etc. It's actually less about the movie and more about Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. The game follows the book much more closely than the movie does, which makes an interesting experience.
Do play it if you like Blade Runner, they did some great things with the game.
I'm a huge Blade Runner fan, and although I never finished the game I really enjoyed what I did play. I've still got my boxed copy stashed away in the cupboard somewhere.
And it's wayyy better than this Blade Runner game. Fun fact on that one: the makers of the game couldn't buy the rights to the movie, but they could buy the rights to the Vangelis soundtrack. When the game finally emerged it had plinky renditions of the Blade Runner score that were pretty naff. It also had horribly janky gameplay that, by COMPLETE COINCIDENCE, played out like the scene where Deckard chases Zhora. But it totally wasn't that. For legal reasons. Shush, it wasn't, okay?
