Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (3 ):

Many factors make PSI-OPS: The Mindgate Conspiracy a poor choice for kids. Most obviously, the game contains a great deal of violence, blood, and gore: Players can smash enemies into walls, leaving bloodstains, or throw them into electrical generators until they burn into a smoking corpse. Scariness is also a factor for younger players. And strong language is scattered throughout the game.

The addition of psychic powers may make this more interesting from a gameplay perspective, but it does nothing to make it more kid-friendly. It only magnifies the violence.
