A game with potential. Wasted potential.
on 1 December 2009
First off, let me just state that this is not a good game at all. It plays like, well, every single other over-the-shoulder shooter in the world. It has an acceptable soundtrack, and the writing can be clever sometimes, but the gameplay is so awful that playing this game feels like a chore. Enemies can, and will, spawn in directly behind you. And they will spawn in droves. Expect to spend way too much time re-doing the same encounter because a random enemy spawned behind you and one-hit-killed you with a shotgun. The boss fights are just as bad, as enemies spawn during those, too. It has some fairly funny segments - a boss battle late in the game parodying JRPGs, for instance - but they just can't make up for the horrendous gameplay. On the bright side, it has some fairly easy achievements, so if you like gamerpoints, go hog wild. If you want a good game, just walk right on by.
