All in all this game is ok. Is it worth renting? Yes if you played all almost everything else. If your at that point. The game play pretty much the same. Graphics are ok for its time. but it gets kinda boring because your doing the exact same thing every level. even with different places its just not that exciting. As far as what the game play its self is about? i played it for 4 hours maybe and don't have a clue. but this one is fun on a day when you got nothing else to do.

Kill.switch is a hard game to review. I had been meaning to play it for years now and recently got my hands on a rental copy. Two days later, I had sent it back. This game disappointed me. First, the positive stuff. It has good graphics considering it's age, the game runs smoothly and plays well. In fact, it reminds me of the more recent Black. Both are shooters with high production value and both suffer from repetition and design choices. Kill.switch relies too much on ducking behind every single object and trying to kill everyone shooting at you. Running and gunning it won't get you very far. While the game mechanics work well, they're simply not interesting enough to hold your attention. It gets old fast. And the more frustrating areas didn't help any. I spent most of my time looking for an infinite health code so I could gun it through the rest of the game (didn't find one by the way). The storyline... is there. But, honestly, you won't understand or care about it in the least. By the time I was about half way through the game, I packed it up, mostly because I knew the second half was going to be exactly the same. At least with Black I was willing to finish the game (although neither one was particularly good). Kill.switch's biggest problem: lack of interest (and it shows up far too soon).
