Alchemist

Skyscraper is an interesting mix of FPS and RPG genre. Though RPG element only limited to combining chemicals and make bombs to throw at enemies. It is an interesting take on standard FPS genre. Game tried to be different from its rivals like CounterStrike and Half Life by introducing a little RPG stuff into the mix. But fells horribly flat. Story is pretty stupid and gunplay is not very engaging. Perhaps game tried a to be a little too ambitions. Graphics are also pretty old now and its hard to recommend this game now. But if you want to check out one of the more ambitions titles of the yesteryears Skyscraper is one for you . Its cheap and its different.

A bad version of CounterStrike

This is a first person shooter/puzzly type game where you play a chemist turned gunman named Chris Wilson who finds himself in a terrorist fight type incident. You have to run around the building using your knowledge of chemicals to make bombs while attempting to kill terrorists. Although this sounds like quite a fun and crazy game, it's not fun. The controls are all over the place, the story is frankly stupid, and the graphics don't work for me. If you're bored and are looking for a quick FPS to play, then buy it. It is only a fiver.

A film directed badly

Good plot, it is like a movie, but it doesn't distract attention from the many flaws of this game, like an AI almost non-existent, an old and ugly graphics and some bugs which affect the gaming experience. If you can continue playing, despite numerous flaws, take it, otherwise move on.
