3.0 out of 5 stars Full of German and English sterotypes, 10 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Actually I was really full of anticipation for the film. From a Western point of view it was one of the rare moments when all powers (including Russia and Japan) were brothers in arms. Whether it was a just cause or not. I don`t want comment on that.

Hence for a movie maker it should be heaven since he can leverage all the different charakters, uniforms and customs of his main audience.

The result is rather poor. The British are godlike creatures, even compared to the heroic Americans. The Germans are fat piglike stereotypes. Especially German envoy Clemens von Ketteler who looked totally different to his film charakter.

To be fair there was one German officer who fought with the Americans and looked kind of chevaleresque..

What I disliked most was the marching in of the allied troops. All looked great except of the Spanish boys tying to look like German soldiers. Wrong marching music as well... :)

2.0 out of 5 stars Slow down lane, 7 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Series shows signs of a slow down. Trying to cover with brutality. I give two points for two Natalie Zea appearances.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unplausible Plot, late feminist touch, 7 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Girl tries to commit suicide. Most obvious reason for this is actually the cause for this attempt. Most obvious suspect is the perpetrator. Plot is as plausible as unfriendly Aussies. Every kind of women problems will be discussed. Hence nobody knows why. Great photography of southern lake district of New Zealand though.

1.0 out of 5 stars A control to despair, 30 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I don`t want to mention other games that offered (in my view) better solutions for an assasin based game with stealth and fighting missions. I don`t like the control system and the story with the avatars, which is confusing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 30 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am a great fan of the Starship Troopers movie and of manga stuff like Appleseed. The story has a good opening but fails to deliver in terms of plot, story and worst of all graphical excellence. Some great opportunities are missed, like the battle gear scenes. Many copycat scenes from Starship Troopers, Aliens and Star Wars. Not one single genuine new idea.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceeded Already High Expectations, 30 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great plot and fantastic acting. It was hard to resist not to watch all episodes on one weekenend. Not to mention the great finale.
