    The weapons line-up is too predictable, with just a pistol, sniper rifle and explosives at your disposal, and the automated targeting arrangement means that even when you do take folk down, there is little satisfaction to be had. The graphics are flat, the voice characterisations plodding and the whole experience way too sterile.

    The game becomes more strategic as it progresses, I am assured by fans of the ten-year-old series, but by then it is very hard to care.

    Fans of the series will have plenty to be happy about, but you can’t help feeling you’ve been here and done that in the previous games. That’s the real horror here.

    This is little more than a random compilation of one long movie trailer, countless tedious game trailers and 20 music tracks.

    The flaws really hit home: the senseless randomness of matching DNA data and the unchallenging routine of tracking down clues.

    Roam around Tokyo, find some bad guys, see some load screens, a couple of cut-scenes, some more load screens, press some buttons in fight mode and so on.
