You could have the doctor make fleeting appearances, for instance you could make a corner, to be confronted by a disappearing police box etc.

Sort of like the g-man from half life

Stop the presses!



So let me get this right.... they've got a licence to produce a Doctor Who videogame, and decide to do flippin' Top Trumps?!

Why the hell not a platform game?

Why not some kind of actioner? Or an RGP?

But no. Top Trumps!!! Argh!!! Mad

This from a typical arse licker over on OG:

hopefully if this game sells well a Doctor Who adventure/RPG game will be released in the future.


So once again we're being asked to pay money for shit because some nepotistic fanboy is worried that Cardiff will pull the plug if sales aren't good. Next he'll be telling us we're not "real fans" for choosing not to buy it.

Let me tell the BBC this: If they had given us a proper Doctor Who game, I might well have been willing to give it a shot. That's a sale.

But they've given us electronic Top Trumps.

No. Just no.

Sorry but...what?! Laughing how does that work, does the other player have to look away so he can't see which of your stats is weak?

Sounds lame!

Indeed, it is a shite-itis LAMEZ game.

Can't imagine many people rushing out to play this crock of shite on the net.

I expect when you go for the online option you'll see a list of empty servers with one sad fanboy twat present on one of them waiting around for hours for some other saddo twat conned out of good money to join him.

I'm quite happy with Dalek Attack and 'mines' (running on my c64 emulator)

So I have my 30gb iPod Video, and i had two games on it that i purchased with my same account, but on a different computer. That computer crashed, and now I have a new one. But now I bought a couple new games, and the only option it seems to be giving me is to sync the games on this computer to the iPod, which would be fine, except I want to keep the games I already have on it and put the new ones on it, but syncing with my computer would erase the existing games. Is there some way I can do this without erasing the games I have now?

Do both with a Deus Ex type game.

I remember, 20 years ago now, I had a thunderbirds game for the Amstrad. It was a proper adventure game too, controlling the characters and solving puzzles. You could even control Brains. Compare with the PS2 Captain Scarlet game (Racing the bloody vehicles out of a choice of two!) it was a masterpiece. Licensed games tend nowadays to be utterly short in everything compared to original concept games.

Aye I reckon that's because when they made the TB game (for example), they had a while - there was no rush, series was old, no publicity to boom to quickly catch the tail of, so they spent actual time making the game.

These days I imagine they get handed a brief at short notice, and then they decide which generic kind of game they can mould this licence into

I've always wanted a Doctor Who game. I did some thinking about this some time ago and one way I'd like to see it done is in the style of an action/adventure RPG similar to that of games like Knights of the Old Republic, Jade Empire, Mass Effect well basically anything made by Bioware.

The use of morality system would fit quite well into a game like this. if you play through the game being peaceful and compassionate it opens doors that makes the game considerably easier, if you choose a more aggressive and violent approach characters treat you differently and the game gets increasingly difficult. This would also have an effect on The Doctor, his appearance could change as well as the interior of the TARDIS. I think that would make the game much more interesting to play.

I do like the idea of a FPS UNIT game. Who wouldn't want The Brigadier ordering them you as your blasting the shit out of a Sontaran.

Did anyone see that handhold Dr Who game way back in the 1990s in DWM. I think it was a dodge the Dalek type thing. Once saw one on sale at a convention to but the sands of time have made me forget much about it.
