When I rented this game I didn't research it or anything and figured it was a shooter. Within a few minutes of playing it you come to the realization that its just the opposite. I'm guilty of playing a lot of shooters that are mindless and you simply blast your way from beginning to end. It was pretty refreshing to actually get into a storyline and characters as they developed throughout the game. If you're open minded you'll probably enjoy it. The ending was especially interesting to me and it makes me eager for another installment. Having said all that, the graphics are a bit lacking. It reminds me of Borderlands but not quite as crisp and detailed. That detail alone isn't enough for me not to recommend it though.
