Summary

Enjoyable while it lasts

The Good

I got into it slowly but surely... the environments are the better part of the game, I think. Whether taking part in the Vietnam War or fighting your way above a concert's stage, the settings could be fun to explore...

The music was also something I noticed early on as being appropriate to each chapter... and there's quite a variety, with one of the better ones being an incremental opera in a cemetery (which I thought stylish).

The Bad

While it was clearly inspired by Max Payne (goes even so far as to replicate its ending at one point, in an attempt to stop a female gangster boss), the storyline just doesn't compare... also kind of ridiculous that while talking none of the characters move their lips at all (and IMO subtitles could have been helpful, as many of the characters either have strong accents or talk fast).

The Bottom Line

Overall... an average third-person shooter, I suppose.
