  1. A very cool game indeed. Stacked up against other movie-based games, it can hold its own with the best of them an it actually makes me more interested in the upcoming film (free ticket or not).
  2. Although the animation and framerate aren't as optimized as they could be (one of the qualities common to Terminal Reality's other titles) and some of the combat sequences can occasionally be frustrating, looking past Charlize Theron's digitized face reveals Aeon Flux to be finely in tune with its animated soul-and a darker, more artistically challenging thrill ride than players are usually privy to.
  3. The detail in the setting is great. This goes for the architecture as well as the outside environments and the organic lifeforms.

    Fact is, it's good. If you dig the Aeon franchise, Charlize's long, lithe getaway sticks, or third-person action games, check it out.
  5. 78
    It's an interesting set up that's attempted, but in its execution it feels far too detached and fragmented to provide a satisfying narrative experience. Buy this game if you like well designed jumping puzzles mixed in with some decent combat sequences.
  6. The close-quarters fighting system is by no means deep, but the inclusion of the style system and the takedown attacks makes for some interesting hand-to-hand scenarios. The acrobatic moves don't hurt either.

    Avoid it like the plague. Terrible gameplay and dry graphics completely ruin this.
