Review by Tom Allen
2 Stars out of 4

Covert Ops is basically Resident Evil on a train. The item box, action button, reverse rolling, simple gun aiming, and mindless enemies all appear in this game.

Unlike Resident Evil, Covert Ops fails to deliver enough suspense and effective pacing to make it worthwhile. Many times you wander around the train without a clue of where to go or what to do.

The game also over-uses blood in an excessive but obviously unrealistic, practically cartoony way. I wouldn't say the game is gory, but when you do see blood, it's either spraying from bodies or spread over a large surface. I don't mind blood, but I do mind the spectacular use of it. Sadly, game companies know blood can be a draw, so games like this practically advertise it. Why not go one step further and let Heinz sponsor the game? That might keep my attention a little more.
