Weak

HOW IS THIS GAME GOOD!?

Im sorry, but I have no idea why it has such a high rating. I found this thing on the first page categorized by "gamefly rating."

Anyway, I just have to say that this game is barely any fun. The way this game starts, it's fun, but when you're in the middle of it. It's not fun.

Basically you play as a psychic soldier that (I cant remember the plot too well since it's been so long) is trying to escape this band of terrorist phycics. You get some guns to shoot other soldiers with and you get some psychic powers that you "restore" within your mind since your has altzimers or something and forgot them.

If the guns weren't so boring or if the AI wasnt so horrible or if the enemies werent so cheap, this game might have been good. You get to use guns that you steal from guards or other soldiers and blast others with of course, but the guns are extremely weak and it's much easier to just use your psy power, but eventually the soldiers somehow can cancel out your powers when you use them so you're forced to use horrible weapons. Now the thing that bugged me the most about this game was the godawful AI. I'll give you an example of them to give you a better picture

You: *Moves on inch*

Guards:(One mile away in the bathroom in the next building) "HEY I HEARD SOMETHING! I BETTER TAKE SIX OTHER ARMED MEN TO CHECK IT OUT

You: ...aw man

Guards: THERE IS SOMEONE THERE! SOUND THE ALARM!

Maybe if they took that part out this game might have gotten a better rating. There's very few good things in this game. Sure the graphics are pretty good for a two year old game, but it's just way too annoying to play through the whole thing.

The only thing that got this thing a four was that the training room was FUN. You can use you powers on ANYTHING in there. There was this wrecking ball that you could lift with your telekinesis and through at boxes or just soldiers that you could insert in the training room.

Just do me a favor and dont buy this game

This game is just way too repetative, and the story is the same way!

This gems is one of the most original and fun to play games ever. Most great ideas get stupid game
play and a bad story. This game, however, is the opposite. You get to burn people with PK, throw people with TK, and Control people with MC. Simply Awesome!!
