  1. It may not be a "Halo"- or "Halo 2"-beater, but at the moment Pariah is the best alternative - and that alone is high praise indeed.
  2. In introducing weapon modification and more importantly Adrenaline/Healing Tool, Pariah ends up feeling significantly different to the vast majority of shooters on the market, there's a definite sense of survival to the whole experience.
  3. The single-player campaign, though over too quickly, is immensely enjoyable, and the relentless action never becomes monotonous thanks to the brilliant array of weapons. Multiplayer is a riot.
  4. "Halo" might have the story and those exquisite cutscenes, but when it comes to the raw gameplay and dynamic opponent AI, I'd choose and play Pariah any day of the week. The game is full of "wow" moments, both visually and during gameplay when you see the enemy perform some human-like action.
  5. Really, my only complaint with Pariah is the enemy AI.
