At first I was rather excited when I read the description for this game, it fit in a genre that always like to see. When I got the game, however, I was quickly shocked at how low-quality the graphics were right from the beginning. It was like I was playing an old arcade game from the 90's. Then I actually got to play it, and the controls were almost as bad as the graphics. Other complaints is that it is so dark in some places that you can't see anything, and that vision power lasts way to short to make a different most times. It makes killing enemies and navigating around really hard, and frankly not worth most of our time.
The gene-addition system is probably the worst thing they could have conceived, I'm not sure who thought that system would be fun but it's really quite convoluted and it's hard to determine the direct benefits of such a thing. At first I was going to stick it out to see what the story was going to be like, but after only an hour of playing it I had to give it up and will quickly be returning it.

I should have never added this game toy list. My initial disspoinyment at not being able to get Fable three when I wanted quickly dwindled when I saw this game. It appeared to be cool and everything a good ge should have. So after waiting the three days it took to get it in the mail and upon putting it in my 360, I was excited at first. That is until the game actually started playing, it was awful. The beginning was ridiculously hard. There are no maps to tell you where to go. To many enemies and not enough villains. This felt like a beta that I would have played on the regular XBOX somewhere back in 02. The set part of this game was actually the 2-D mini game which involves linking alien genes to create mutations that give you power. After about a day or two I beat it sentnit back and never looked back. This game made me doubt humanity.
