    The game’s haphazard strokes fail to paint a complete picture, and you’ll suffer frequent pauses as you shoot and solve your way to the end.
  2. The PlayStation 2 version of Redemption also suffers from some technical flaws, such as occasionally visible polygon seams and constant, noisy disc access.

    The execution of this game is so poor it almost makes me cry, because it COULD have been fantastic. This game has a fantastic premise: a Fritz Lang - like Metropolis, an interesting backstory with deep characters and conflicts in a a divided society - "above" and "below"- sadly all which is good about the game is strangled at birth. Terrible targeting system, numb AI, and the worst stinker of them all: puzzles from Uranus. Add to this glitches and buggy graphics (the character shadows have a life of their own) and stretch the whole thing out over 30 hours and you have the heartbreaker that is HH:R. And as a previous poster commented, the intro is horrendously long: 12 min. of cut-scenes before you get to play! Full Review »

    Gameplay was refreshingly fun, body physics were highly tuned to realism, very atmoshpereic, I liked getting emotionally attached to the characters (as they span over from the firstheadhunter) the only thing I didn't like about HR was the exclusion of the MOTORCYCLE damnit. Full Review »

    I nearly fell asleep during the interminably lonnnnng intro scenes. Naff dialogue and background. Sorry, but this one is either for my kiddies to play, or else it's getting swapped for just about anything. I am not a particular fan of third person games anyway - Tomb Raider was a similar yawn for me, however, at least Lara Croft is half good-looking, unlike the greasy looky sLeaza X. Full Review »
