Stargate SG1: Unleashed Episode 1
by Jon Mundy 19/3/2013
Product: Stargate SG-1 Unleashed
Developer: Arkalis Interactive
Format: iPhone, iPad
Genre: Adventure, Film/ TV tie- in
Of all the unpromising fantasy films to make it into a long-running cult TV show, Stargate has to be right up there with Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
It somehow managed to drag on for ten long series (and several spin-offs) despite its mediocre origins.
Must be something to do with that MacGyver chap.
Like a regenerating Egyptian alien-god thingy, the Stargate franchise has now reformed into an episodic iOS game, Stargate SG1: Unleashed. If this one succeeds, though, we'll be even more perplexed.
Where's Kurt Russell when you need him
Like a dodgy pilot episode, Stargate SG1: Unleashed is badly written, poorly paced, and really quite dull
