  1. Sure, it tends to wear its influences so prominently on its sleeve that it bleeds over into the derivative (Unreal 2, Tron 2.0, Deus Ex, Star Wars, etc.), but there did seem to be a certain passion that went into the code somewhere along the line.
  2. The sound, animation, story and enemy AI are all lacking to some extent. This causes the game to be a lot less fun than it should be. The lack of story means that you're running around without a purpose and the lack of enemy AI really make this a rather flat feeling title.
  3. A bitter disappointment in almost all accounts. The game’s physics are laughable, characters forgettable and audio too generic. The main reason to play games in the first place – the fun aspect – is sorely lacking here and a few hours of gameplay will be more than enough for most people before becoming seriously bored.
  4. Despite aspirations to intelligence, this is comfortably one of the dumbest first-person shooters we’ve ever come across. The FPS action is stilted, the RPG elements make you want to rip your own still-beating heart out, and the main character sounds a lot like Duke Nukem’s halfwit brother.
  5. Any sense of believability is quickly shattered the moment you shoot an enemy. The gargling that emerges from your TV sounds as though it was obtained by someone with gastroenteritis taping a mic to the inside of their toilet.

    The worst shooter I've ever played. Stupid A.I., crappy graphics and one of the borings stories ever.
