Storyline

...On the small island civilization of Hillys, the DomZ creatures are a ruthless alien race which have invaded the Hillyan people. The government has set up the Alpha Section, which is a society "devoted to the safety of Hillys", or at least that's what they want you to think. The Alpha Sections are always late to the scene when an invasion occurs, and they're shields are always "broken". The Alpha Sections also work for and are controlled by the DomZ themselves!! Your job as Jade, the photojournalist, is to uncover the conspiracy your government puts before you an expose the real horrors the Alpha Sections corrupt, and show Hillys the truth to the Iris network, the group devoted to good. As you play through the levels, you're required to take photos of DomZ activity to show Hillyans the truth, with many twists, turns, and obstacles, with a bit of heartbreak, on the way.

Spectacular, jaw dropping, stunning
20 August 2005 | by johnny_ultimateSee all my reviews

It's always the good ones that get overlooked.

This is arguably the most sublime, awe-inspiring, playable adventure of this generation of consoles. It plays like a sci-fi version of Zelda, only much more cinematic and less mention of elves. The graphics are quite simply jaw dropping, with a whole world - including the animals, the environments, the people, and space (!!!) - rendered in an utterly believable way.

The characters are the most likable bunch you could hope for. From Jade, the main character trying to uncover a vast conspiracy, to Pey'J, your friendly talking pig sidekick, through to even the most minor of characters, you build a connection with many of the different characters.

The music is absolutely stunning, with cinematic themes acting as a powerful backdrop to the game play. And some game play it is. With a wide amount of game types - platformer, action, racing, photography, puzzler, and at the end space battle - it's a game bursting with variety.

The only problem is it's length - at around 10 hours you want more. But while it lasts it's complete perfection. A game like none other awaits you. That it didn't sell enough to warrant the planned trilogy is one of the greatest shames in video game history.
