FMV Hell – Johnny Mnemonic

The Spoony One | Nov 30 2007 | more notation(s) | 

Take a tour of the FMV games I grew up playing and learn how they scarred my existence! There’s more to come, and we’re leading up to a full-length review of one of the oddest FMV games ever made! Now we tackle the most dreaded of the FMV titles: the interactive movies. We begin with Foxhunt and continue on to one of the rarest and most difficult games to run: Johnny Mnemonic.

He’s a data courier in a future that hasn’t invented e-mail or thumb drives, and if you touch the computers your head explodes. Jeez, even in the future nothing works. Will Johnny ever find the rest of his computer so he can start tracking down that damn download code? And will it do him any good since every computer he touches melts his brain?

Only Chef can provide those answers, so we head to the Lo-Tek headquarters to hack our own brains and to get our hands on some chocolate salty balls!

    This goes to show how good of an actor Christopher Walken and John Rhyes Davis are, they took their roles seriously, and made them believeable

    Hilarious! That’s definetly the funniest and most sophisticated FMV-Review i’ve seen for a while. :) :D Sometimes I think Spoony an me had the same childhood (and definetly the same FMV collection). ;) More! More! There are so many more FMV-Games to do. ;)

    (by the way: There is another (rather good) FMV game called Burn:Cycle which was mainly a rip-of of “Johnny Mnemonic” for CD-i, Mac and Windows.)

    Hey, I liked The Journeyman Project, and if the crappy visuals are an issue, the remake version is even better. I would recommend both the sequels, Buried in Time and Legacy of Time, for some excellent time-travel adventuring.

    I remember those awesome Tex Murphy games! Under a Killing Moon was the best I thought but I’ve only played Overseer (shitty) and Under A Killing Moon… although I haven’t played either one since before the turn of the millennium. Wow, looking back, FMV games deserved to die a horrible death.

    I remember Journeyman Project for Windows. I was little back then and it scared the pure SHIT OUT OF ME. Sure going back in time to find different objects is fun, But hearing voices from no where and experiencing a future where there is a dead silence and the music will make you shit yourself will have you sitting in the fucking corner with a flashlight.

    Foxhound? I had that game! When I saw the wierd pose the guy did it came flooding back to me. God was that a bad game. I hope you do a full review sometime…

    Speaking of FMV games, how about Police Quest: Swat. That was somewhat FMV iirc. That was semi decent and would be fun to see you do.

    Thanks for the reminder on one of my favorite Playstation games of all my early teens Noah. I’ve been combing your reviews for some time now to dig through the fog of my mind to unearth the name Fox Hunt for some time now. I just found it on Amazon for $20 too.

    Say what you will about the game but I’ll pay $20 for a somewhat entertaining slice of my childhood brought to my door, only to have those fuzzy memories rendered to bloody gibbets by the cold unfeeling reality that awaits me. I’ll probably enjoy it anyhow.

    Thanks.

    You got me intregued. So intrueged I actually shelled out 5 bucks on amazon (with 3 shipping) to buy a brand new sealed copy of this game, just to say I actually played it. However, while I’ve been calling everyone I know to see if they kept their old legacy machines, or still had any of the legacy machines I gave them (I had a really good p1 133mhz 16 mb system in 97 that now I wish I kept).

    So my question is, if I have to run an emulation layer on a dedicated test pc (and the only test pc I have which I wouldn’t mind destroying the os by accident since there’s nothing important in it is a Win 7 64 amd athlon2 64bit x4 8gb 1066 system. How the heck do I get it running?

    Wow…this was quite the obscure, almost surreal review. It was very informative. Though Indigo Prophecy had popularized it, or at least brought it into the mainstream, Black Dahlia, Ripper and Under A Killing Moon all sound really interesting. Now, if only I could run those…I’m already shelling out too much money on visual novels, now I have to get into interactive movies.

    By the way, who else is hyped for Heavy Rain?

    so wait a minute…does this game actually have any legal or marketing ties to the film? if so, why didn’t they just use the footage they arlready shot instead of all this hackneyed poop? and if it wasn’t and came out before or after…WHY MAKE IT AT ALL????!!! WHO THE HELL WOULD WANT IT?!?

    and i agree. live actors were the worst thing to ever happen to video games. they were all community theatre rejects that couldn’t get jobs as extras on baywatch nights. remember the live actors in FMV’s for the first resident evil? oh god i piss my pants every time I or one of my friends brings up the old chestnut “barry?…WHERE’S barry!!!???” or “blood..I hope this isn’t…CHRIS’S…BLOOD!!!” hahahah. it’s like they all went to shatner school

    man, seriously though, this game looks more annurism inducing than sewer shark. though am i the only one who finds it funny that in the movie, the rebel leader dude is played by Ice T…which means having chef play him in the game makes it so he’s the only character played by a BIGGER ACTOR than the hollywood movie?!

    Wha-a-a-at? No mention of Quantum Gate? That was the first real FMV game I sat down and played, and if I remember right it would play out differently depending on what decisions you made. I’m pretty sure that for a while there it was included with a lot of CD-ROM’s (probably when the 2x’s were coming out, cause I’m sure it cost 50 bucks when it was brand new); I remember at least 3 friends having it, too. Quantum Gate actually stuck with me my entire life, the memory and the empty jewel case ironically, as the endgame sequence TOTALLY BLEW MY FUCKING MIND.

    UTTER SPOILERS

    I don’t remember the specifics, but you’re on some alien planet fighting what appear to be giant insects or some shit. You can even go outside into the deadly environment with a special suit and a helmet that “renders” all the insects into crude polygons (or sprites, more likely) so you can blast them. Well, at the very end of the game (maybe 2 hrs of playtime?) your suit has been compromised and initiates an “auto-euthanasia” protocol and you take off your helmet and see the aliens for the first time and they are fucking angels. I’m not putting that in all caps cause eyes would be directed straight to it but oh my god fucking beautiful winged humans. I was like 12 and it blew me away. Maybe a lot of it is nostalgia, but it made a permanent impression.

    UAKM tried to keep most of the relevant transitions/rooms on each disc, but yeah you’re right. If you were unlucky enough to travel to a location that’s stored on another disc, uh oh change time! The most memorable was the phonograph in Tex’s office… if you accidentally examine that you have to change over to the first disc, then back to whatever disc you were on. The fact that it was a great game compensates though. Access did better with the sequel (Pandora Directive).

    I've seen this one a few times but just figured I'd comment now that we can. This is one of the best FMV hell reviews, its unfortunate he couldnt get the game to work but it was good enough. This game was bargain bin for years (even shortly after it was actually released, I had the chance to get it once a long time ago but never did).
    Its kinda funny how much the game mimicked the movie (even so far as using a musician for the leader of the Low Teks same as the movie).

    Only thing I dont like is that you act like most all FMV games are bad. Well, ok they are but theres more good ones then you give credit for =P
    Oh and I've always wondered if your ever actually gonna review Minority Report: Everyone Runs, but at this point I'm going to assume thats a no haha. That game had some good ideas but ended up being tedious. Making people puke is kinda cool though =P

    Anyway, continuing my marathon of classic spoony reviews. This is my third time watching all these. Wish you'd do more of these again. Keep up the good work Spony

    DOSBox can't fry your master boot record. Something must have gone wrong at the time that wasn't actually related to you installing this game. But it's a bummer you couldn't get it to run.

    How about getting an old PC with old software on it and capture the video from that? That usually works best.

    By the way, Lands of Lore: Guardians of Destiny was a rather nice game (or at least I think so). It also had a bunch of cheesy FMVs.

    Although I never got a chance to play the Take 2 Interactive type FMV games, I actually like FMV titles in general. Crime Patrol is actually pretty awesome, fast paced, intense, and really difficult for an FMV title.

      He did somewhat good in The Gift. Seemed rather natural.

      …Which gives me the impression that he’s an angry guy.

    Hey Spoony, you know that ‘toilet money’ was real money.

    They are old Dutch guldens, before the introduction of the Euro as a currency.

    Lol i had to look twice, i didn’t believe it.

    Wtf are they doing with guldens in a game, maybe they look futuristic or something :P

    • sanktmikael

      Well, it’s not real money anymore.

    I don’t know.. I really liked the Journeyman Project Turbo, by whatever means. Hell, it made me get into PC gaming, though I never had the exposure others had. : Small-town life.

    I like the mic quality in this one. Gives Spoony’s voice some sweet bass. I miss that.

    Holy shit! Critical Path and Megarace were the first two games I had on my first ever computer (Packard Bell running Windows 3.1.1. back in the day). Sure brings back memories seeing someone else talk about them.

    I’m a big fan but sorry I just go over this: Windows 3.11 is a gigantic piece of shit? As in, the best Windows ever made? Weak dude

    I finally get that joke at 2:29. Final Sacrifice is easily one of the best MST3K ever.

    Twilight is ok it’s by no means oscar worthy material just ok to watch but your review. Was pretty fun to watch you could give Mike,Kevin,and Bill a run for their money. I think the part that made me laugh the most was you telling your dog “You can’t drink that this is daddy’s medicine”

    No fair! The Journeyman Project was not mediocre, it’s one of the few VG series that got better with every sequel. Okay, maybe the first game was a bit of a snooze, but 2 and 3 were great, immersive, and fun. And the graphics quality was really impressive, blending the CG and live-action together quite impressively for the time. And the biggest one, Legacy of Time, only had 4 disks, each corresponding to a time code, so the break in flow made logical sense. I know this review is an old one, but it’s still worth defending TJP.

    To quote Spock, ” Fascinating”. Really dig the history intro. I’m roughly spoonys’ age and never really saw many of these games due to lack of a proper gaming rig and was stuck on consoles ( oh the horror). Seriously, entire segments could be done on the history of certain gaming eras and types. And this could work for tabletop, card games, not just video games. This format gets spoony back to where he’s most natural and funny. Telling a story (see counter monkey). To the moderators, please forward this as I won’t waste our collective time trying to contact him personally, I (in all reality spoony) am on to something here. Also, drink more Arrogant Bastard!

    Out of place and all, but the original short story Johnny Mnemonic is actually really good.

    I loved Toon Struck, which was an adventure game with cartoon graphics and FMV Christopher Lloyd, and even a decent (although a bit cliché) storyline. I really liked the idea of putting a live actor into a cartoon world, it’s a shame that it didn’t get any renown.

    I’ve the Johnny Mnemonic FMV game, but can’t get my computer to “See” it. When I insert disk one, it shows a .cin file. Any advice for getting this game to work? The folks at World of Longplay would love to have this game Longplayed.

    I want to know what you had to do to get this footage Noah

  • theshamster

    So basically, there is no way to complete the game, since you die even after you’ve removed the data from your head?
    geez, what a crappy game

  • Xandermorph

    LOL I wanna know who wrote the line “mostly, I help out wit da hobos” for THAT actor to say.
