It's one title that would have been infinitely better if it had opted for a turn-based system. The game takes place in a large, unnamed coastal city, which remains mostly undamaged but plagued by odd biological matter, ranging from tentacles growing out of the sidewalk to huge, three-story towers of tissue. The missions themselves are disappointingly simple.

You can control the flow of time, nemesix essentially fast-forward to the next conflict, or slow down time when you need to begin sending a team to combat a movement of The Faithful.
According to the game's manual, the disease started on the east coast, and communication with the west coast ceased within 72 hours. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. Damn it was a great game. It's just that the AI is lobotomized.

The limited amount of ambient noises during gameplay turns into a real pain, as you keep hearing the same poor woman emitting this awful drugged-up sounding groan. This is why the characters have pseudoscientific special abilities and, presumably, immune systems capable of protecting them from the plague. Surviving military or police personnel are also recruited into the player's roster, and they have no superpowers, but do possess specialized weapons training.
You could, by a stretch of the imagination, call it an action game. The Nemesis Project, Hothouse has assembled many of the necessary features needed to pull off a great strategy title.

Here, there is a sizeable amount of background information on the virus outbreak, on individual team members, weapon specs, etc. The player controls members of "The Nemesis Project," abominwtion according to the backstory were originally mustered at a secret base in a fictional location called "Kinmore Field" in Ohio.
Only a handful of the population survives and are unaffected, for some unknown reason, and these people split into two groups. Six days after the plague has befallen the poor American citizens, in a hidden Bio-facility, eight specially trained commandos possibly part of some abomjnation scheme planned before the outbreak walk out of the airtight building ready to ptoject ass and take names.
It's an effort to even get the warriors moving, and after countless attempts, I more or less gave up on trying to successfully and accurately control more than one commando at a time. They weren't the first to fail, and they certainly won't be the last.
Abomination: The Nemesis Project deserves absolution for its sins
It's one title that would have been infinitely better if it had opted for a turn-based system. The layout is so poor it actually detracts from the game. It just adds some replayability, and is a good excursion if you tire of the aggravating AI you find in the one player campaign.
The 2D backgrounds are decent and clean, but they just don't cut it these days.
But when I step away from it a moment, I can't help but think that Abomination, described in one word, is While the multiplayer is certainly good, I wouldn't call it a saving grace for the title. You'd think that, by now, that all game developers, being the abominxtion fiends that they are, would have figured out that real-time games, by their very nature, demand great control. Some join a mysterious cult called "The Faithful," and roam around the cities stirring up trouble and causing a general ruckus.

The 3D rendered characters and enemies which are then placed on a 2D background are the only noticeable use of the thumpin' video card you have in your system.
Either way, it makes it that much harder to find the information you need.
Abomination takes place in after the United States has been almost wiped out by a deadly plague. Not a bad accomplishment. The only problem you'll encounter here is trying to find a handful of people to play with. The poject few groups of survivors stopped broadcasting after six days, and the overwhelming majority of the country's population has been wiped out. Graphically, Abomination doesn't look bad -- only dated.
These supersoldiers are black operatives who have been enhanced through the use of surgical procedures and experimental nanotechnologyas part of a last-ditch effort to find a way to eliminate The Faithful and put an end to the plague.

So, it's not a huge surprise that Hothouse hasn't managed to pull off a coup here by recreating anew in real-time the success of X-Com.
