"The tale of Dax C. Ward as he conquers the challenges laid before him in the Magrunner facility and he finds himself fighting for his life from Cthulhu Mythos brand monsters is great. It is just the execution that makes the game stumble along as the gameplay and the story both try to develop and unfortunately step on each others toes. Despite these Magrunner has still transitioned very well to consoles and being offered for half the price makes it an even better bang for the buck. Those that missed out on the PC release or who have been waiting for it to reach consoles should find it an interesting and unique challenge for their mind."
