Good game - not enough of it
on 8 February 2006
This game was highly enjoyable to play - beautiful graphics, inventive system for combining and making items, which kept it very realistic, but it was let down in a few areas. One was the linear nature of the game, it was just too linear. There also were not enough places to go, I was quite disappointed to discover that while I could see other parts of the island, I couldn't get to them. Having to shoot down robots partially ruined the game, I didn't feel it was in the spirit of the genre, or even the setting! It was over before it barely started, and left you feeling like you'd missed out somewhere.
But - it was a good game. The gameplay was excellent, the scenes beautiful and the plot-line good. It was just too short, and too small. I'd have preferred that the developers spent more time making it a bigger game, than releasing it in a platform that could be completed in 4-6 hours.
It is worth playing, but don't settle down for too long.
