Sorry to disagree with most of you, but it's really not that good......

OK. I'll give this game credit. It is more original than many a FPS out there, and I guess it deserves some of your time.
But not much.
You start off playing thinking it's a bit weird, and then it gets better...
Beautiful graphics, original storyline with challenging but not overly hard puzzles, cool guns, cool locations with innovative ideas (the gravity belts and room rotating etc etc) and strange but impressive enemies.
So far so good I hear you say.
And why the poor rating then?
Well, I just got bored of it. It's ever so samey.
Walk into room. Kill bad guys. Activate something to solve puzzle. Enter more bad guys. Kill bad guys. Exit room.
Walk through corridors.
Enter room. Kill bad guys. Activate something...... you get the idea.
You get bored of the rotating rooms, the funny paths that lead up walls and ceilings that you can walk up.
Even the 'spirit world' ends up being a bit tedious.
It just doesn't seem to evolve very much the further you progress into the game, and I kinda wish it did.
Don't get me wrong. It's not a bad game, but it's just not as great as some of the reviews I read before buying it. I guess maybe all the hype made me think it would be exceptional. And it isn't.
Download the demo and give it a try. Just don't expect the full version of the game to add much more to it.
