This was one of the better games on the original Xbox. I loved it. You might think of it as the original survival horror game that titles like Dead Space were molded from. I’d love to see a battle between the weird mutated spawns in The Thing against the Necromorphs in Dead Space.
The game takes place about 3 months after the events in the 1982 movie starring Kurt Russell. The Thing (movie) was playing last night on Cinemax and it reminded me of the game. It’s a classic movie that I can watch over and over without getting bored. I loved the movie and I loved the game. There was some freaky shat going on in both. Seeing a guy’s chest cave in and turn into some giant mouth was disturbing, yet awesome. And I won’t even mention the head turning into a mutated spider.

Next-Gen Meter: Very High
I suppose I’ve sort of already received a sequel to this because Dead Space is as close to The Thing as we have on the Xbox 360 but I still rated my desire for a sequel “very high” on the next-gen meter. However, I don’t think Computer Artworks or Universal Interactive can do much about my desire for an update to The Thing.
