SummaryGameplay is the crux, I think
The GoodThe mechanics (weapons etc.) and graphics are the better elements of this game... the world is immersive, and despite the main character merely shooting his enemies constantly, it manages to not become repetitive due to upgrades in both the character's equipment (other GIs becoming equipable chips is an interesting concept) and enemies (there are some impressive robots that almost look like Metal Gear that require more than the usual artillery to beat).
The BadThe storyline is a bit thin... at one point I wasn't even sure why some power stations needed to be shut down... it is mainly transmitted through the cut-scenes, and although it doesn't get to a certain depth, an encyclopedia as part of the game's extras does provide a bit more in-universe information (particularly useful if the players haven't read the comics).
