Fair

Fun at first

I guess it's fun at first but how long can you play a game where you just run and jump all the time. Also it's VERY linear. I guess it's worth a rental but I was bored after the first two chapters.

Innovative first-person game, fresh artistic look of the city instead of typical brown and grey colors most shooters have now. Terrible combat/shooting despite the fact that the developer behind Battlefield 2 is responsible for this. Sequel has a lot of potential. A good rent that everyone should try out.

This game is good in fact its great but why only an 8 well to put it simply it gets boring.

This game is one of the most origonal games of 2008 its litteral first person view worked perfectly along with the jumping running and all the key things that you need in this game but what didnt work is the repetitiveness.

Early in the game you learn to master your basic movements, jumping running along walls and balancing. but then when you head torward the middle of the game I felt bored like I have seen this all before the blue red and white building got old fast thankfully you got a break in builing after a while. The combat system worker well but at times I could have sworn I did something correct like staling a gun but somehow I didnt it can make you aggrevated over time.

Overall this game is great graphiclly and with sound, everythign works well mechanicly but like I said the story was the only let down. this is a rent not a buy.

Gameplay - 7 (it just got boring)
Graphics - 9 (I love the textures and colors but thats the same thing we see almost the whole time)
Sound - 9 (great voice acting along with music)
