    I honestly enjoy playing this game. It's obvious it's poor, and not at all what was expected but i still find it genuinly entertaining. Granted that's playing with a mate and not taking a blind bit of notice of the story line, and creating our own voice overs. Plus leaping off the cliffs never seems to get old.
    The shooting is poor and the controlls are basic, but i did

    The shooting is poor and the controlls are basic, but i did enjoy the very large levels and quite long game. It's a little glitchy in places when playing with a friend, one of you can sometimes end up without a level to stand on constantly falling to your death as it just respawns you in the same place - so the other person has to complete that part of the level by themselves.
    You CAN take cover it does work, and is suggeted, as just running into battle fireing will most often result in your death as a) the aiming is very poor (unless it's the sniper rifle) b) the enemys are very accurate...
    The climbing part of the game, again although quite a basic attemt, is also well done. There are often multiple routes to take to get to the same point, and you can lose track of where you are, which way your going and where the other player is.
    Hopefully if they are to make a sequel they will put more effort into it though

    It is really broken, but sometimes this makes a game funny and enjoyable. The best parts are the awkward cutscenes, the absolutely terrible voiceacting and of course the hyper strange enemy movement.

    It may feel a bit out of place on current hardware, but viewing it as something of a "lost classic" from the last generation affords it a more appropriate context to be judged in, and a more comfortable one to be enjoyed with.
  2. Amateurish mix of Tomb Raider and Unreal Tournament 2004 that should have stayed as a fan-made mod.
  3. It's ill-thought from the very start, which is demonstrated by the contradictions and flaws evident throughout the entire game.
