Summary

Strong Start, weak finish.

The Good

- Clever use of multiple view angles (à-la-24)
- very strong story start.
- good immersion,sense of urgency very present.
- Overall first 1/2 of game solid.

The Bad

Right about half point :

- False sense of choice
(its either "game over" or go on, no branching tree story)
- You realize whatever you did in the past is irrelevant.
- Story quickly dwindles, you end up doing menial irrelevant things or just pushing buttons for the story to continue
- Ending is... well, very, very bad.

The Bottom Line

Ingenious design. Brilliant concept. Poorly executed.

Once you realize that nothing matters, it leaves a rather bitter taste.
