Old School Meets New School

If your a fan of old school platformers such as Mario Bros., Kid Icarus, and hordes of others and love doing speed runs and going for perfect run this is THE game 4 you. Whats makes it unique is its all in first person and sets itself apart from the pack. If u want a shoot em up look elsewhere, this game has some horrible shooting mechanics and rightfully so cause its not meant to be played as such. Its looks great as u would expect and my only real gripe is its length ull blow through this in a weekend. Other than that perfecting your runs will keep u coming back 4 more.

Best Game in it's Field!

That's because it is the only game in it's field and did an excellent start to this new genre. It is true, the game lacks much gun gameplay and does have anime cinematics.

As for the gun gameplay the game wasn't totally meant for shooting. Free Runners in real life don't want to do harm they just want to run, and I think they were trying to show that through this game.

The graphics are beautiful. For example you being in this new view running from cops while a helicopter is shooting the building down while your still on it is really intense.

I haven't finish the game and that is the only reason it isn't getting a 10 from me. JUST TRY IT YOURSELF.
