This is a rather surprising title that mixes a little bit of the story from I, Robot, and the gameplay of Gears of War. To summarize the story, you're a member of a 6-8 team Rust Crew sent in to capture the inventor of Hollow Children (cyborgs who have no idea that they're not-human) before his plans for global domination comes to fruition. That might sound pretty straight forward, but it has it's share of twists and double-crosses to keep you engaged throughout.
The game is about 6 hours long. You have the ability to upgrade your weapons and enhance your player with nanomachines for things like defense, added health bonuses, etc. The voice acting was better than expected as was the dialogue. Never before have I laughed so hard during certain parts of this game. Cain was my favorite by far.
If there are any negatives to the game, it's the AI that will constantly get in your line of fire. I felt like the "respect" system was pretty useless. And it's just too short to justify spending over $10-$20 on this game.
I'd give this a rent. Too bad it's so short or my score would be higher. 8/10.

I like games that go outside the box. BD was one of those games.
I appreciate the time Sega took making this game. I was worried having played their RPG they released a few yrs back. The storyline is phenomenal and which i thought I had guessed the whole thing but it took twists I never saw coming. Loved this game and would tell fans of Mass effect to give it a shot.
