Although when picking up this game I expected a more futurist style of playing and graphics, I still was not disappointed. I loved the fact that you could update your favorite teammates skills and guns so they could be better equipped to help your character. Besides the upgrades, the design and style of the game was very futuristic looking and quite smooth. I liked that you could interact with normal citizens at certain points in the game to gain more info about what was going on in your surrounds. For the actual game play I was very satisfied; having one weapon that you can constantly update as you go along was awesome. The AI wasn't too bad either, if you updated their skills/weapons enough they were actually helpful in battle. Although this time the enemies were bionic, the fighting was still quite entertaining. I personally thoroughly enjoyed this game.
Best summary for this game is this is what you would get if Final Fantasy & Gears of War had a baby! This game story screams final fantasy from the character interactions to the boss fights to even the settings. The gameplay is gears of war thrid person cover shooter directional buttons map for weapons. Its really good fun. Rarerly do i think a game ever deserves a 10 but this one does!
Fun RPGish elements for upgrading characters
The only con in this game which really is nitpicking is i upgraded my early characters spending a good amount of money on them only for them to disapear for 40% of the game, had i known that i wouldnt have spent so much money on them
