this game is hands down the best story ive played in video games next to ico or beyond good and evil i would buy a copy of this game just to show future generations.....OKAY!! the story starts out pretty slow an inteligent atractive woman named zoe castillo is lying in a comma telling anyone who will listen in a out of body expierience what happened so the story can be told in she doesnt die in vain. you flash back to a couple months ago and slowly find you are in the future not star trek but gettin there. its kinda a drag at first joggin around the city finding important people and locations but trust me once the story hits the nitrous youll wish you had more time with it. the story plays half point in because you can interact with everything with a blue flash light type vision when you depress the right stick but thats just to interact with the enviorment you could just walk up to some thing but theres so much sht id get hard to find what you want.
next dialouge there is litterally hours of scripted dialouge there is even written dialouge for objects and people you dont have to interact with. WHen you talk to some one turns into a chose your own adventre with about 4 different choices to every thing someone says to you. FIGHTING now zoe is a black belt but most of the fighting will be done with the other 2 characters whos stories intertwine and finnaly meet.STORY zoe has dropped out of college and out of her friends lives felling depressed she tries to find some meaning to her life after coming late to her dojo she meets her ex rezza who running lat asks her to deliver a package she obliges but finds a wierd nervous woman waiting for her looking on the huge tv behind the woman she sees the helena chang the one the package was meant for locked up after disposing of the nerous woman wich can go a couple differen ways she frees helena and when she returns to rezza he has been kidnaped it seems he was getting to deep into something .I WILL CONTINUE THISH REVIEW

Not so much a game...more of a movie with occasional player interaction. Dialogue sequences were way too long. I was very disappointed.

Above Average

Strong in Plot, Not Much Gameplay

Too movie-like, and with unnecessarily long movies and dialogue. It is very interesting, but I wish there were more gameplay and less talking.
