SummaryRemains my favourite game ever
The GoodEverything about this game worked for me. I'm very interested in Cyberpunk and the futuristic genre, being a huge fanboy for Final Fantasy 7 and Blade Runner (both the movie and game). This game was beautifully made, with a wonderful story that unfolded well. Although it doesn't hold up as much the second time you go through it, I've finished the game around nine times on all difficulty levels, so if you are as caught up in the storyline as I was, you'll go back many times. The game had some memorable settings, such as the desolate streets of New York and the atmospheric Hong Kong settings. The graphics were great, although my graphics card couldn't (and still can't) exploit the visual beauty fully. The sound was awesome, I listen to the mp3s I managed to find each day. I particularly love the first New York Streets theme, but most of them were good (DuClare Chateau a standout).
The BadHonestly, there wasn't much I didn't like in the game. One minor gripe is that the levels are a little generic towards the end, slightly repetitive. Area 51 is a really well designed location though. One thing they could have done is more branching storylines related to the character. Like, breaking into Jock's apartment was a thrill, but it didn't reveal much about Jock the person. However, the emails were a nice touch and gave characters some personality.
