This game seemed to be interesting and fun, but I think that they overdid this game. I think that they overdeveloped this game and made it too involved. There is just too much going on with it and there are too many controls involved here. It's almost like you have to take a college course to learn how to play this game and learn how to do everything that is involved in navigating it.
GRAPHIX- IT WAS LIKE WATCHING AKSHEN FIGURES DUKE IT OUT, PRETTY BUT REALLY REALLY STIFF
GAEMPLAY- LIKE PRESSING BUTTONS IN A REPETITIVE MOTION FOR AN HOUR? WELL GO OPERATE HEAVY MACHINERY. OR PLAY DIS GAME.
PRESENTATION- GERALD DOES HIS BEST CLINT EASTWOOD IMPRESSION (TO NO AVAIL), THE SOLDIERS SOUND LIKE THEY SHOULD BE IN A CHARLES DICKENS PLAY, AND IT ONLY GETS MORE GENERIC FROM THERE.
THE MENUS DESERVE SPECIAL MENTION, BUT ONLY BECAUSE THEY WERE SO ABYSMAL.
FINAL THOUGHTS- GO PLAY SKYRIM, OR MASS EFFECT, OR BATMAN: ARKHAM ASYLUM, OR ALPHA PROTOCOL, OTHER GAMES DESERVE YOUR ATTENTION, JUST NOT DIS 1.
The game had a good engine and a good story and combat was fun but could have been improved if the camera didn't lock to your characters back. And that's just one fatal flaw. Another is the game rarely gave you a quest marker so you never have any clue where to go, so you spent half your time looking up walk troughs. Another fatal flaw was lack of fast travel. While the game took place in separate small open world areas a fast travel still would have been amazing. So you spend the other half of your time just walking places and with out a sprint button it took ages. Very big flaw right there. Another bad part of the game was walking looked fake and robotic, he walked like I've never seen someone walked before. Poor motion capture I would guess. Another bad part was while some of the age seemed very well done there a few parts where they seemed to have slacked and not given it there all. Like the audio some characters voices were of poorer quality while some were louder and some were quieter so I was constantly changing the volume on my monitor. The game received great reviews which I fail to understand why seeing as there so many flaws. All in all it was just bad. Had great potential and an enticing story but the gameplay was just appalling in my opinion.
