Edge: Capsized Review

Edge: "You are stranded on a gorgeous but deeply inhospitable world, and it is trying to kill you. Capsized is a return to the lonely science fiction of gaming's youth, a connective tissue stretching from 2D adventures like Another World and Metroid to early FPSes, particularly Doom. Though happy to declare itself a retro title, Alientrap's action-platformer is very much its own game - and an excellent one at that.

The only area of the game's presentation that does not excel is animation - characters articulate stiffly, sometimes wearing their origins as static art a little too openly. Beyond that, though, this is a singularly beautiful game, nicely offset by a soundtrack of sober electronica and a minimalist HUD." (Capsized, PC) 8/10
