Solid gameplay engine, MILES AND MILES OF CLONED CORRIDORS Xbox Vance (98)
Good but very, very over-rated. Windows Lars Hansson (5)
A good (NOT great) game that is overhyped to the extreme Xbox *Legion* (138)
A fantastic 'smart' first person shooter-- miles ahead of everything before it. Windows ShadowShrike (303)
Same old levels, same old guns, same old enemies, then..back again. Xbox Gareth Day (9)
