GIZORAMA - The publishing team 505 Games has offended and disappointed me before with its previous abomination Deep Black. When Marlow Briggs appeared before me, a sigh of disappointment left my mouth. Soon after completing the game, my dissatisfaction with the company grew even larger. Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death is a hollow, distasteful imitation of one of Sony’s greatest franchises.
Firefighter Marlow Briggs is on vacation with his girlfriend Eva Torres at a Mayan excavation site. Five minutes later, the two decide that they want to leave, because Torres feels as if she’s being used, but are stopped by Torres’ boss Heng Long. Moments after, Long’s hired assassin lodges an ancient weapon through Briggs’ chest as Torres screams in agony. Luckily, Briggs is resurrected from the pits of Xibalba by an ancient tiki mask so he can save his girlfriend and murder the evil Long before he takes over the world. 2/5
