    This game coulda been good but it felt incomplete. Combat was fun but repetitive.

    I was ready to give this game a fair shake and forgive some of its serious gameplay flaws. I was waiting to see what happened once I upgraded to better suits and such but you know what happened? The game was over and credits were rolling!!! Glad I just rented it! So here are my gripes: - Why can't the dumbass chick move and shoot at the same time? - Why does she do a stupid little I was ready to give this game a fair shake and forgive some of its serious gameplay flaws.

    Striking perhaps for all the wrong reasons. It surprises due to the simplicity and appears original because it bucks the current trend of excess. Yet this originality is indeed false, because it has been so heavily based upon the games of old. [JPN Import]

    You'll soon learn the groove: shoot, dodge, shoot, dodge. It should get tedious, but it doesn't. P.N.03 rewards skill above all else and mastery brings huge satisfaction. Grace under fire has rarely been done better. [June 2003, p.96]
