Without Warning review

  • Cool storytelling method
  • Graphics are actually quite good
  • Occasional minigames are fun
  • Everything reeks of blandness
  • Tries way too hard to be clever
  • Dumb, inhumanly durable enemies

We do like the bits where you do odd things, like when you play a rhythm-action game to defuse a bomb, but these moments are too rare and often too simple to save the game. The result is that Without Warning plays more like a kind of arcade light-gun shooter with legs, and feels like it needed a better script and about six more months of development time. There’s got to be a "be warned about Without Warning" joke that hasn’t been done already, but screw it: just stay away from this game, OK?
