Okay, So I haven't beat it yet.. But the game itself is really well done, It's sorta slow to get your Augs throughout the game but that's fine. It's a harder play-through if you don't kill anyone, so if you want a bigger challenge, try it that way. It's a long game if you want to beat all the quests, and there's also different scenarios.. such as if u say something wrong, this person dies, or you say something right, they live. The Cover system favors the covert[Stealth] Players. Not so much on the Run-and-Gun players, it's kinda Clunky because its not a smooth jump in-out of cover. Sometimes you'll get stuck and it'll take an extra 1-2 seconds to get off the cover.... so in that term, it needs work.
All in all i'll say it's a great rent at the moment. later on I might change that to a buy if you can replay with all your augs.
It can seem out of date in certain areas, but it's a really good game for casual gamers.. or those story-line/Stealth players.
Oh just a hint. I wouldn't grab the Non-Lethal long-range weapon in the beginning, choose the short range weapon choice if you want stealth. The Snipers are almost useless in the game, mainly because you're almost always near enemies.
First off, I've seen people compare this game to Splinter Cell Conviction, and Alpha Protocol.
It's nothing like the two, Alpha Protocol is a terrible wanna be RPG spy movie and Conviction is far from what Splinter Cell use to be.
Now, the gameplay is great, takes skill to get a headshot off with a sniper rifle, pistols, machine guns and such take the tired and true short round bursts to kill people. And for those who actually play through the game, you'll find there are four different ways to end the game.
Graphics are decent, not Crysis 2 graphics. But they get the job done when you take the time to look at all the small details they put into each level.
Story is a good coproate espionage. Don't know where people are getting the Medal Gear. But then again people can't make a review and put it up to another game.
An amazing game on it's own, and that's what it is. A game in it's own catagory.
