Minority Report
3 Star Review  GameZone - Dec 12, 2002

You can almost always count on director Steven Spielberg to release some kind of blockbuster filled with over-the-top special effects and big movie stars and this year’s Minority Report--with Tom Cruise--is no exception. A sci-fi action film with an action-packed plot and an abundance of futuristic weapons, this definitely is a great setting for a game. However, this is not always the case but will Minority Report for the Xbox prove to be an exception? Allow me to continue. The year is 2054 and law enforcement officials are using dormant psychics to predict a crime before it even occurs.

Minority Report
1.5 Star Review  GameSpy - Dec 28, 2002

You must be a studious video-game fanatic if you're still reading this review after seeing its score. Very well, I'll happily give you a primer on this game's history since you'll want a brief history lesson on just how this license was squandered in such a spectacular manner. It's not as if developers Treyarch had a terrible, Collateral Damage-style moo-vie without any sort of redeeming sub-plot to explore. For you see, Minority Report was based on a well-received film, based in turn on an excellent short story penned by Philip K. Dick ; the king of paranoid sci-fi ramblings, and author of Blade Runner. Unfortunately for good Mr. Dick, the game based on his work isn't nearly as fascinating as the written word or the movie it inspired.

Minority Report
3 Star Review  IGN.com - Nov 19, 2002

Earlier this year, Steven Spielberg released a smashing sci-fi movie featuring Tom Cruise. In a world where violent crime is predicted by three psychics before it happens, there has not been a murder in over five years. When one of Precrime's own, John Anderton, is convicted of committing a future murder, the tenets of precrime are shaken. Anderton, like every other convicted pre-criminal, runs and the Precrime Division gives chase. Sounds like a promising video game premise. Unfortunately, Treyarch's Minority Report fails to capture the marvel of its movie counterpart, and even worse, doesn't offer many thrills in yet another failed movie-turned-video-game

Strengths: Graphics and set designs

Weakness: Repetitive game play

Everyone seems to hate this game- but overall I enjoyed it. I did play it on the easiest setting- and it was still overwhelmingly hard at some points- but there are tons of cheat codes available on the internet for it. Not a bad game for $20- I finished it in around 6 hours. Great creative set designs although there should have been more of a variety. I loved SMASHING everything in site!
