This game takes several highlights from other games such as: The Darkness, Half Life, Fable, Condemned, Deus Ex and Oblivion. Its a RPG FPS but not sandbox. The story, character animations and overall appearance is a bit of a let down for a this gen console. I noticed a few glitches im sure will be fixed in future updates. All in all its about a 8-10 hr campaign, left open to your choices so i could see replaying it. I'm not much into FPS sword fighting and Steam Punk timelines but it is interesting. The teleporting around makes me feel like nightcrawler.

All the hype about this game had me very excited to play. I was hoping for a sci-fi Assassins Creed, I was sadly mistaken. I personally thought the graphics are left to be desired, the game play is boring and repetitive, and the story line is cheesy. I played for a few hours before I finally convinced myself it was not as good as I had told myself. May be a 10/10 for some but for this guy a big two thumbs down.

Perfect blend of Assassin's Creed,Bioshock,Deus Ex games that creates an vibrant environment and intricate storytelling. This game give you options, freedom, and most importantly variety. So many ways to kill or avoid targets. Going into this game without alerting for anyone or killing one takes HIGH skill. If you rush this game just to complete it, you are pathetic. dont listen to stupid reviews 7 below because those are people who dont like challenges or fun there not even classified as gamers. Let those impaired idiots forever be enslaved by action games like COD, while us REAL gamers enjoy new IPs and innovation creativity. Buy this and support Arkane Studios for this creation. My GOTY for 2013.
