Official description
The Thing for the PS2 follows a military rescue team as they investigate the mysterious deaths of an American scientific expedition in the Antarctic. That?s right! The same scientific expedition that Kurt Russell was a member of in the 1982 film The Thing. This groundbreaking game features the revolutionary ?trust/fear interface? this interface adds a new dimension to the genre - How you influence non-player characters psychological state determines whether or not these characters will cooperate with you. Just like the paranoia that started in the film, you?ll never know who?s been taken over by the Thing and who hasn?t. Puzzle solving will be key to your survival. With many ways to accomplish each objective, no two people will play the game the same way.
