    They seem to have missed a creative mind behind this project, who would design a more enjoyable gameplay, keep the story more coherent and make the game three times as long as it turned of to be.

    Even in the face of the irritating gameplay and lack of functionality, it's the liberties the game takes with its source that hurt the most.

I would recomend this game to unexperienced gamers, but some of the missions early on in the game are far from obvious. This game isn't even worth copying. I made it through the first time in about 5 hours. Lets all do the world a favor and not sponser this game's production or marketing in any way Full Review »
