    If you're looking for a shooter with depth, complex metaphors or even a coherent plot, look away now. But if you're looking for $15 of gory, mindless fun, this is your game. I agree that linear, simple to a fault and as subtle as a brick wall, but it has good graphics, varied weapons/enemies and enough blood to fill the Gulf o Mexico. It looses points for lacking an autosave functionIf you're looking for a shooter with depth, complex metaphors or even a coherent plot, look away now.

    To those who have not tried this series or something similar before, it is a good chance for a different approach to FPS games. Direct action without automatic healing and a high difficulty level only for the brave.
