I rented this game from the BB a week ago... Was left so unsatisfied, because it was such an amazing game but it was too, too short. Wish there would have been more out of this one. I still keep having day dreams about this world, and a game has not had an effect on me like that in years. Truely and Epic game, but tragically too short.

I will admit that at first i was a little put off by the new company heading this game (considering it was originally a True Crime) but i have to say i was proven wrong. This is an outstanding game and the controls are great. The melee fighting is great (although it did take me a bit to get it down), and The guns handled fine once you get over it not handling like a FPS (it's not supposed to, sheesh) but there's not alot of gunplay when compared to all the hand to hand. It's truly a HUGE open world with tonds of places to get to (which is made more fun by the ability to move the way you do. my biggest complains are that there aren't alot of Side quests and the ones that are there are basically the same thing over and over which is okay for a bit considering it's a blast, but does wear thing eventually. and secondly the outfit customization was a little light for my taste. don't get me wrong, there's tons of cloths, but not alot of variation among them. Overall i would say it's a MUST rent. as for buying, if you catch it on sale i'd go for it, otherwise unless you're a True crimes diehard, i'd hold off. who knows, maybe some DLC will ramp it up a bit. The Story is great but once it's over, it gets dull quick.
This game is Grand Theft Auto on crank and every other imaginable drug available. Awesome fighting, martial arts and environmental knockouts and kills. The only thing it had me wishing for was a gun shop to blow my exorbitant amounts of cash on instead of just clothes or vehicles. 8/10 for style and flair and original-ish story line. Maybe would have been 9-10/10 if it didn't remind me of Grand Theft Auto so much in core design.
