Stargate SG 1: Unleashed

Stargate SG-1: Unleashed Ep 1 is a newly released adventure game from Arkalis Interactive that brings the classic Stargate on iOS platform in the form of a game. It turns out to be interesting but can hardly replicate the series’ previous glory.

Stargate SG-1 is a sci-fi classic, and there’s a new iOS game based on the series that has come out of nowhere from relative unknown, Arkalis Interactive. The game is a 3D action adventure that is similar to TellTale’s Back to the Future and Jurassic Park, but with more action. Stargate SG-1: Unleashed is obviously intriguing to Stargate fans, but can also stand alone even if you’re unfamiliar with the series. The story included stands on its own with plenty of background, and detail as well as great sci-fi topics including alien destruction and time travel.

The game includes the voice over of the original SG-1 cast, and you get to alternate controlling all four members of the team. The style is familiar, but feels new thanks to the touch centric design allowing for various swipes, and taps to perform actions. There are also gun battles, stealth missions, dialogue choices, and puzzles to solve to deliver the true action adventure style. The action is the definite highlight to keep the story moving, and to keep you actively engaged and immersed in the Stargate universe.

The entire game feels like a multi-part episode with the detailed 3D graphics to provide that interactive movie style that TellTale is known for. Arkalis has crafted one fine game engine for everything to run without a hitch on the latest generation devices, and the character modeling is superb. The storyline can get a bit heavy with some long winded speeches filled with alien jargon, but it’s worth sitting through even as an outsider. The main drawback is that the game is relatively short with nine quick chapters as each one really delivers only one mission. This is episode one of a three part series, and while episode one is enjoyable, it just comes to an end too quickly.

Stargate SG-1: Unleashed ($4.99, Universal) is a finely crafted 3D action adventure with varied gameplay, spirited sequences, and great visuals. Stargate SG-1: Unleashed can appeal to fans, and non-fan alike to make it a should buy for an entertaining sci-fi exploration.

Scripted by the widely known Stargate novelist,Sally Malcolm, and dubbed by the reputed cast of Startgate SG-1, Stargate SG-1: Unleashed Ep 1 is a much-anticipated game by millions of sci-fi fans. The game manages to live up to our expectation in terms of graphics, soundtrack, in-game protagonists and plot, but falls short somehow in weaving a quality gameplay into the grand settings.

The Stargate series has never faded out of people’s memory ever since the debut of its first member. And now the launch of Stargate SG-1: Unleashed Ep 1 will definitely propel us to reminisce about our past jovial old-time with this series and leave a fresh footprint out there in our memory, with its engrossing storyline, in particular and many other assets.

You just cannot help being attracted by a game, when it offers such an enchanting story. Some fans of Stargate may have already possessed enough knowledge to bypass the background, but many more together with those uninitiated might still fall into the grasp of its wonderful plot. That is the case with me when I first got to know Stargate SG-1: Unleashed Ep 1. The extraordinary legend has it that stargates were previously devised by aliens as part of their galactic network when they ruled over universe and enslaved human beings.

A haphazard archaeological research unveiled those mysterious gates, whose purpose was not raveled until a long interval later. New discovery proves that those gates are still in use by the aliens, who keep attacking the earth through these gates. There starts our game, where we are in control of Stargate Command members whose mission is to fend off alien invasions and explore numerous planets in the galaxy to bring new technologies back to earth.

The game stars a few protagonists with distinctive characteristics and strengths, such as tactical and loyal colonel Jack O’Neill, smart and courageous second-in-command Samantha Carter, as well as curious and upright Dr. Daniel Jackson. It is such fun to be in charge of this great team for a glorious cause. In addition to the appealing settings, the 3D visuals also immensely augment our enjoyment. The get-on of first chapter thrusts us directly into a spacious archaeological lab powered by the most advanced technology. A Russian worker of the lab accidentally opened an antique Egyptian jar where Goa’uld Sekhmet (a vicious snake-head alien) had been imprisoned for thousands of years.

A nightmare begins here. You witness clearly every move of the female worker in white lab gown–coming to the glass jar, take off its lid and peep into it–and next minute you see her latched by a bloodlust-driven Goa’uld with glowing eyes, and killed her colleague without mercy. The blood splashes and dribbles, the haughty face glitters with venom and the dying worker gasping for her last breath. You will truly know how much the stunning visuals contribute to your gaming experience the deeper you are involved in the game. Sizzling old bulbs, decrepit walls and meandering paths…

The same charm, if not greater, comes from the game’s soundtrack. The authoritative tone of the colonel, the loud shots, deafening bombing, alongside a whole array of other natural sounds always channel the thrill up your spine. However, the game also has its Achilles’ Heel. Too much storytelling leaves very little room for action. In most cases, you have to wait for a long time before you can make an encounter with alien enemies, which causes the game not worthwhile to replay.

To mention re-playability, another nuisance emerges. Unlike other games, you don’t easily get over the first few scenarios, which tends to thwart your confidence. At least, it seems so to me. I am actually forced to play the same battle again and again. Once I was almost at the end of the task when an enemy shoot the colonel down with god-know-what gear, forcing me to repeat the game again. How very upsetting! What is more, you feel so impotent at times when you see with your own eyes your companions dying right in front of your in-game avatar without being able to do anything. I hope the developer can update that in the near future.

By and large, Stargate SG-1: Unleashed Ep 1 is quite an excellent adventure game. If you are not too particular about the Stargate brand, you will surely derive much fun from it. But obviously, it could fare much better if it offered a more innovative gameplay.
