This was a good game and I wanted to buy this one when I rented it but it wasn't available. For the most part your shooting and moving and the added bonus comes with the slowed reaction time when your shooting, it's great! Then the acrobatics of this guy is insane, he's shooting off of rolling tables, rails you name it! I would advise anyone to rent this game if you like to be where the action is, this is it!

Very Good

Rent It, Don't Buy It

I went in to this game not expecting much. I left being thoroughly impressed with it.

First off, let's note the game's biggest flaw: It's only about 4 or 5 hours long. Because of this, I certainly wouldn't recommend buying it. However, the 4/5 hours that you get out of this game are a lot of fun.

The game is a rip-off of Max Payne. This would bother me if not for two things: 1). Max Payne was awesome, 2). Max Payne was highly influenced by John Woo, whose name is on the game.

The 4 or 5 hours are a lot of fun, with the main character, (the poorly named) Inspector Tequila, having numerous abilities to choose from, including slow-motion "bullet time", a spinning auto-attack that kills everyone in site, and a cool zoom effect when using guns that result in a one-shot kill. Inspector Tequila can also shoot glowing spots on the surrounding environment blow up platforms and take out enemies in mass.

One positive of such a short game is that the gameplay never has a chance to be repetitive or boring.

It is what it is; it's a short game, with middling graphics. However, the action is fun, and the game will keep your attention for all 4 or 5 hours.

Check it out!
