The anime is better Jan 01, 2006
"Quoth the Raven 'Nevermore"
In Aeon Flux, you assume the role of our titular heroine as she embarks on stealth and demolition missions. True to the schizophrenic continuality of the original TV series, Aeon's allegiance and identity in the game constantly changes from level to level. In one level, Aeon may be protecting Chairman Goodchild, while in another level; she may be attempting to assassinate him. Additionally, the developer has taken painstaking steps to religiously recreate the world originally envisioned by Peter Chung. The game features all of Aeon's triple-jointed signature moves and Aeon's notorious FUG (Flex Universal Gun) complete with four varieties of ammo and the ability to ascend and descend via grapple function. While the game's aesthetics and design is spot on to the franchises distinct style, gameplay teeters between fluidly fast-pace action and insanely difficult and tedious game segments. Firstly, almost all of the back-story is told through collecting and viewing Intel Capsules. The process of accessing and reading screens of Intel Capsule text cancels out the engrossing aspects of gameplay and rips your attention away from identifying with the heroine. Moreover, many of the mini-puzzles peppered throughout the game are absurdly difficult. For instance, Aeon may be tasked to lower a shield barrier to enable her compatriots to escape the area. To lower the shield, Aeon has to guide her Orb device through an insane obstacle course to the shield access port in two different locations. By the time you actually access the first port your compatriots will have already been riddled with gun fire--repeat level, add nauseam. If you're a fan of Aeon Flux, this game will be an enjoyable romp; otherwise, you should pick this title up at your own risk.

Flux Off Dec 27, 2005
By A. Bennett
"Will 'vouge' For Food"
Paying hommage more to the cartoon series of "Aeon Flux" rather than the movie version, "Aeon Flux" (the game) is a solid, entertaining, and challenging play.
The story, set into different episodes that span a great deal of time, is a tribute to Aeon's notoriously muddled continuity. You will die only to be reborn and then die again. Aeon, voiced by Charlize Theron, controls gracefully...if rather clumsy. For the varied moves the game offers some are a bit hard to pull of. Especially under the time constraints the game loves to put forth. Although the game does offer an onscreen timing indicator, it can still be a bit tricky and rather frustrating. The animation is great and Aeon looks beautiful as she makes her way through the game.
That said, the graphics are great and the characters models look great. Interesting to note that most of the character models are crafted after the cartoon versions and not the film. So fans of the series will take great joy in watching Aeon interact with those familiar faces. Aeon is presented in many different lights (including the wife of Goodchild) and the game offers some cool unlockables. Varied costumes choice, including the movie catsuit but not the original Aeon Flux, gives the game good replay value. The difficulty is high, as the game presents lots of jumping elements and stealth game play. It's easy to become frustrated with all the bullets flying and the death toll rising, but the sheer joy at creating such choas presents its own charm.
Fans of action games will have a good time with this one...but it's real joy will be for Flux fans who have been eager to finally get their joysticks revved up with Aeon Flux. A surprising solid game that has found a audience despite the lackluster performace of the Flux film. A definate treat that deserves a once over.

Frustrating ,Aggravating and Entertaining Nov 26, 2005
By A. Cuvilly
As Obi-Wan would say "patience young one". The average player might give up after a few levels. Its definitely challenging. This game has it all run, flip ,jump, escape, shoot. I never got a chance to catch my breath. If you do play it, turn on the cheat modes(infinite health and Ammo). Man, that helped alot. I've played it twice already. Its too bad Aeon's original outfit from the animated series isnt in the game. I guess Charlize Theron nixed that idea. Overall, not bad at all.

Flawed but good enough. Dec 02, 2005
This game is VERY much like Bloodreign 2. Great to look at and initially fun to play, but in the end kind of boring. It has lots of climbing poles and flipping all over the place like BR2, and shares many control and gameplay designs with that title. It also has a "metroid prime-esque" repeating gameplay function were you guide a ball through obstacle courses, one with a large ball containing Aeon herself and another with a tiny ball used to hack into interfaces. This is fun the first few times but is repeated WAY to often and becomes quite frustrating very quickly. If you are an Aeon fan, then it is worth owning for posterity, this is the closest were gonna get to the Aeon game we were promised so many moons ago. Or if you liked Bloodreign than this is very much a futuristic "cyberpunk" styled version of that game. But I honestly can't say that this game is worth 50 bucks, if you intend to purchase it shop around. If you are neither of these above and are just looking for a new action title to play, this title perfectly embodies the oft-repeated cliche "rent it first".
PS: A.Cuvilly, I totally agree they skimped out when they didn't include the original costume :)
My son's opinion Mar 10, 2011
He loved this game when he got it and still enjoys playing it. It has some different moves than some of his other games. (She can run on walls, to avoid holes in the floor, etc. and has a sphere that she can roll through areas in). Very cool game.
