A lotta hype without much to ride on...

The Good

I'm a big fan of the Decent series, a game that put a great twist on the first person action shoot-em up games, and this was a carbon-copy with many of the same elements. The multi-player mode was great, very Bond-esk with the twist of a dual axis, 360-degree playing arena, although the playing fields were a tad small if you had 4 players going.

The Bad

They built this game up like crazy. Tons of ads were running all the time and oddly none of them had much of the actual game in them, but they made it look really cool. If you bought into that, you were probably pretty disappointed when you got it home. It was a Decent carbon-copy with little originality. The only differences being worse handling and terribly monotonous gameplay. It was anything but smooth even when you did get the handling down.

The Bottom Line

An alright game. Kind of like Bond, kind of like Decent. Run of the mill first-person action. Multi-player is a blast. Its worth a look nowadays, since you don't have to pay 50 bucks for it anymore.
