Totally Unexpected!, 18 Nov. 2008
First thing first, how good is this game? Seriously, if you are looking at this thinking "should i get this?" Just buy it, really you will not be disappointed.
Ok so the game. Based in a perfect city in the future, you are a Runner called Faith and basically your sister is framed for murder. However you know she is innocent, so you go after finding the truth. There is more to the story but really that is the main parts summed up in two sentences.
The cool part of the game would be running around, jumping over big gaps, jumping fences, wall runs, balancing on beams, dodging under things, swinging on things and lastly running away from the bad guys. This is all done in first person, so if you like its kind of Tomb Raider gone first-person. Although I said running away from the bad guys, if you want, you can take them on, do some cool disarm, take their gun and shoot them a couple of times. What you need to remember is that this is no first-person shooter, as the focus is more on melee combat. So don't expect amazing AI. Mind you they can sometimes be hard to fend off when there is a big group of them.
This game is totally different to what is in the market, that's probably it has actually made me really like this game. Once you have finished the game the time trials are great fun but also very challenging as you always want to have a good score when you upload it onto the online leaderboard.
Not going to go on more about this, just check the trailers of this game, even download the demo but I know you will probably feel somewhat surprised, as this is a real gaming triumph.
