Play This!!!

I was a little leery about playing this because I was told by a few people who played it that it was a "Hong Kong GTA rip-off". After taking the chance and putting 22 hours into it in a week, I can say those people were wrong! 100% wrong! It's such a good game. It has so very few minor flaws that are barely remotely annoying from time to time, but it's almost the perfect game for people who like free roam action adventure games like this and like GTA and Saints Row. I would have to say one of my absolute favorite parts was the small amount of guns used in the game. I have nothing against guns, but I find it much more fun and challenging to have more hand-to-hand combat in a game than just shooting everything and everyone.

tl;dr PLAY THIS FREAKIN' GAME! WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!

To start of, this game has a great storyline. I found myself losing track of time because I would get so caught up in the story. Even the side missions are fun. The combat system is very similar to the batman arkham city/asylum combat system (minus the weapons and gadgets). I had to get used to the combat system again but after a couple of fights I got used to it. I would DEFINITELY recommend renting this game as it is one of the best games I've rented in a while.

Broken combat system

Here I am trying to fight 30 guys, by myself, with no health regeneration, 4 guys trying to hit me a one time, trying to use a counter which half the time doesn't work, end up dying near the last couple guys, and it starts me from the beginning. I can't remember the last time I played a game with a combat system this broken. This game tries to be like GTA and Saints Row, but it nowhere as good as either game. Don't bother renting if you want to play a game with a broken combat system.
