I had very high expectations for this game. Starting off, the first thing I noticed was the textures and graphics were much more cartoonish than I had originally expected. Not as much of an open world aspect as I had hoped. The weapon selection and upgrade system was average. The combat system was simple but pretty cool. The story was predictable and seemed to drag on a bit. This is a below average version of Bioshock.
I actually wasn't expecting much out of this game to be honest, I Heard a lot of critic reviews adoring it, yet personal customer reviews didn't seem to be fans. After I began playing it, I got hooked immediately into the storyline, and the powers you can have are simply astonishing. The game, of course, had some down sides. The storyline, although very entertaining, was quite short, even done the hard way, and if you do decide to take the easy route and fight your way through the game, rather than sneaking about, well it's not so easy on higher difficulties, open combat is a huge risk. In my personal opinion, it's worth playing, but not buying.
