A first-person shooter that plumbs the deepest recesses of human consciousness for its fodder, Dreamkiller offers gamers a dozen surreal levels of high-caliber gunplay. The star of the game is Alice Drake, a young psychologist with the unique ability to enter her patients' subconscious and destroy all of their worst nightmares. The inner demons of each patient vary wildly, so every level of Dreamkiller features its own setting — from the twisting corridors of an asylum in a woman afraid of going mad, to the dizzying heights of a tower scaled every night by an acrophobic man. Each dreamscape includes a secondary state of consciousness, where players will find new power-ups, wield new weapons, and confront new foes. Though the enemies she faces appear to be figments of her patients' imagination, Alice can be killed if she doesn't take the proper precautions. Luckily, gamers have a heavy-duty arsenal at their disposal, including lightning bolts, lasers, and sticky bombs, and Alice's years of dream-slaying have imbued within her special abilities like pyrokinesis and teleportation. Dreamkiller also includes "Deathmatch," "Team Deathmatch," "Conquest," and "Capture the Flag" multiplayer modes, offering as many as eight players the chance to team-up or square off in eight nightmarish levels. ~ Christopher Brown, All Game Guide
