FMV Hell – Microcosm

The Spoony One | Apr 6 2008 | more notation(s) | 

The Spoony One makes his triumphant return in this review of the worst, most boring game to ever blight the PC or the SegaCD: Microcosm. Take a Fantastic Voyage through FMV Hell and see if you can survive “the ultimate CD-ROM game.” But first, we need to take a look at the most grotesquely over-fluffed instruction manual ever written for a game. Keep a pen handy, or you’ll regret it…

    Yeah, corporate bullshit sucks, but you always have to find out the hard way. You tend to defend it until you become a victim. For this game, it appears that the creator would’ve had more fun writing a novel than a plot. It’d be a sci-fi version of those fantasy books with dictionaries and lore in the back. If only he had done that… But we wouldn’t be watching this video, either.

    Oh and I think you forgot to credit Double Dragon for music.

    You know, it just hit me that you probably used the Double Dragon theme that played in River City Ransom, which is why you credited RCR and not DD. So, forget that last comment I made.

      Aye, with some research I could find the same thing. Better graphics, interface and even music and handling on the PC and Amiga CD32.
      So quite a shame that you lost the game for PC, bet it ended up in the bin ages ago.

    D Rock, as I’ve speculated elsewhere, I get the distinct impression that Psygnosis wanted to put more into the game than just the rail shooter. But the budget was probably blown to Hell and back by hiring Name talent for the soundtrack, using cinematics and CGI for cutscenes and other such extras–not to mention the T-shirt and CD giveaways that came with the PC version. Thus, what portion of the game was finished, as well as what cutscenes were already made, were thrown together into the final result.
    Sure, such things are standard fare in today’s games, PC and console, but back in the day they were very new–and very expensive.
    And yes, I’m [i]thaqt[/i] darkdriver. ;)

    Sure, such things are standard fare in today’s games, PC and console, but back in the day they were very new–and very expensive.

    D Rock, as I’ve speculated elsewhere, I get the distinct impression that Psygnosis wanted to put more into the game than just the rail shooter.

    He’s comparing the CD-Rom version to the Sega CD version. Maybe the computer has those features, like music. The Sega CD version, as far as we know, doesn’t make those claims.

    Spoony’s videos always have the best soundtracks. I just wish he added a bit more detail at the end of the video about what these songs are called, and list them in order of appearance. Saying something is from a certain game doesn’t help much since games often have dozens of tracks. Mario RPG, for example, has 53 tracks.

    The song playing near the end of the game is “Strut” from Space Channel 5. Took a while to figure it out so I thought I would share it.

    The one thing i wish you had kept was the Chrono Trigger music you had playing at the password scene.
    Not only did it really fit the scene better, it is an AWSOME piece of music from a really awsome game that needs some more exposure (not sure i spelled that word right, I AM swedish after all).

    Your Ahnold is hilarious. BTW, Silver Age Superman could have totally beat Giant Dizzy Gillespie.

    That’s some bad dubbing.

    Wow, all that backstory really did have little to do with the actual game, didn’t it? Why not just say you’re a guy in a little ship trying to make your way through some guys body?

    Wow, if you can play better blindfolded, that’s bad design.

    Why isn’t the password letters? That’s just stupid.

    Thank you kindly for the game. While watching your opening cinematic I got the following done:

    2. Invented a cure for cancer
    3. Gave enough to money to save the entire country of Somalia from starvation
    4. Played facebook and made a farmville plot the size of mars
    5. Made a better game compared to yours and got rich

    The game tune he uses while reading the book, after the story intro that is,(For those curious) is from Blaster Master on the Nes. It was made by “Sunsoft”, a company that produced some of the best 8 bit(Nes) game tunes to ever be made. The other tunes he uses are all from the game, I believe. But I can’t say for sure as I’m not willing to go pick up that piece of shit to find out; and that’s coming from a guy that owns hundreds of old console games+game tunes in digital form on his computer. ->_I_<- won't even play Microcosm.

    Doctor says to a group of 4th year medical students: “Now, I want you all to remember. Never ever shrink a person down to the size of a red blood cell, put him in someone else’s body and give him lasers. If you do that, you will be validating the premise of the game ‘Microcosm’ and will hence be spending the next half of eternity in the same circle of hell reserved for Stephanie Meyer and the idiots who thought FF X-2 was a good idea. There are much easier ways to kill a patient without trying to restructure the laws of the universe.”

    I used to have that on my pc, but that was like 18 years ago (ok, not mine as I was 4 at the time). :P
    Well, I did remember the intro was long and boring, but I haven’t realized it was that long. Besides, all I had was just the pc speaker, so I didn’t bother. I wouldn’t complain considering I didn’t have to hear anything from it. :P

    I was confused in the gameplay especially because of the position of the ship. As a results, I never passed the first level. Perhaps I haven’t taken the patience in this game, but I preferred to play Wolf3D or Doom instead. :P

    Anyway, for all that time, I never new the damn name of the game until now and that was annoying. I swear I was a pirated copy because I never saw that CD. Go me!

    Thanks to the review. It’s fun to rediscover old games I have played before, regardless if it’s good or not. It was a good time back then. :D

    SGI = Silicon Graphics, Inc.  Back in the day, up until about the mid to late 90s, SGI was the company which made machines specially made for high-end digital video effects.  A desktop was around $40,000.  SGIs were responsible for allowing the Stargate effect to look as good as it did back in 1994.  Eventually CPU prices dropped, as did servers, and soon people were able to do more on non-SGI machines.  BUt claiming those are “SGI graphics” is a fucking joke.

       It’s from Final Fantasy 4. It’s the music that plays in the town of Mysidia.

    Hey, Spoony. Did you know that Psygnosis, the developers of this game, got bought out by Sony? That’s why Wipeout is a PlayStation exclusive franchise now.

    • Strelnikov

      ….and Psygnosis is now out of business.

  • jnywest

    Okay, the video player is working better now after reading your instructions.

  • Atmos_Duality

    Huh. I distinctly remember this video having different background music for the bit when Spoony was frantically searching for something to write the password down on. Specifically, a track from Chrono Trigger (when you do the race against Johnny)

    Did Squeenix come down on you for using it or what?

    I still haven’t come across a better Arnold impression. You could say your Arnold impression… IS IMPRESSIVE, HA HA!

    I played the Amiga CD32 version of the game. The music in this version sounds a lot better … and it really helped having a cheat which gave me invincibility, and all the weapon powerups I think (with the trade-off of making the little level cut-scenes black and white).

    But seriously, I quite liked the music in the CD32 version. Here’s a clip of someone’s playthrough, and you can skim through it to hear the various stage themes. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DxBYS_ahDG0

    Played this back in the day and really enjoyed it. Sure – it has a lot of the same issues all FMV, and chase-cam shooters have, but I thought the presentation was good and atmospheric. Also – it was kind of a Psygnosis thing to include an entire novel as backstory – I actually find it to be a plus rather than an annoyance.

    Also – the game’s CD contains several ambient redbook audio tracks not used in the game that are actually quite good.

    That Snowcrash shirt is completely fucking awesome.

    A musician made a music video inspired by this game:

    Why are you afraid of losing a password IF YOU ARE RECORDING THE GAME? You could just check your recording.

    • Dudley

      Huh, it’s a review. He’s reviewing the game. That’s why he’s recording it. Do people normally record their games? Would a written review of this game say “the password system is bullshit, but since the average person playing this game will naturally be recording it, they can just check that later”. For fuck’s sake.

      • Joshua Jimenez

        Well, many people, including me, record what they play on the off chance to make a Let’s Play about it later.

        I know that the average person might not record it, but he does. I am not complaining that he made the point that if you don’t have a pencil at hand, you’re fucked. I am complaining the point that HE was fucked during recording, which he wasn’t.

        • Dudley

          I think the idea of him acting fucked during recording was precisely to convey what would normally happen to most players. Including, I assume, himself when he’s not making a Let’s Play, and particularly when this game came out. So I’d call it a bit of fiction to make a point, as is the purpose of the review.

          Of course, he could just have said “if I wasn’t recording this, I’d be fucked”, but it wouldn’t have the same impact.

          • Joshua Jimenez

            agreed. I just would have added a scene like:
            “no, NOOOO! Fuck you game! You think you can screw me? well, too bad for you, I have all this on recording! Yes, I have a recording of me playing Microcosm… I have no meaningful live, do I?

    • Senna4ever

      Well the general idea is to put across what playing the game was like when it was originally released and back then, people didn’t record themselves playing games.

      That’s the point.

  • Senna4ever

    This is the single worst game purchase Spoony has ever made…even more so than Ultima 9?
