Much like the TV show that inspired it, this first-person action game isn't terribly original or especially compelling. Playing like a cross between Portal and Mirror's Edge, as well as any game where you're a superhero or a Jedi, Gemini: Heroes Reborn mines a lot of familiar territories. When not running, jumping, or climbing, you're trying to figure out what combination of your powers to use to get to the next section where you have to run, jump, and climb. But this is where the problem lies: Cassandra's abilities make this too easy, and you feel like a bit of a cheat, since you can just zap yourself to the other time and out of danger whenever you want. It also doesn't help that the combat can be awkward or that jumping and climbing are never optimal in a first-person game. That said, there are times when the problem-solving prompts you to combine your powers in interesting ways, while the environment lets you get creative (and sadistic) in how you can dispatch enemies. Ultimately, though, this isn't anything we haven't seen before.
