Gemini: Heroes Reborn Review
Inspired combat can't save this messy and short experience
Heroes Reborn may not be the return to form that fans were hoping for, but it got enough push to warrant two tie-in video games. The most substantial of which is Gemini: Heroes Reborn, a first-person, physics-action game that takes place in an underground Renautus facility across two different time periods. In one, the facility is in ruins and overrun with mercenaries. In the other, the facility is pristine -- filled with everyday security guards and ongoing experiments.
You play as Cassandra, a new hero who has just discovered her powers, which of course include the ability to jump between these two periods. Top that off with telekinesis and time slowing abilities and you end up with a combat cocktail that turns our gunless hero into an able-bodied warrior. Her goal? To survive, save her friend, and uncover the truth about the facility. Does the super-powered combat and Heroes-fueled story amount to a game worth your time and money? Read on to find out.
