SummaryA very engaging game that blends hand to hand combat with gunfighting.
The GoodThe best part of the game is the plot line of a futuristic science fiction bordering on cyberpunk. The plot is carefully crafted and all the elements like consoles, news etc. supplement the plot line perfectly. The game also features a great sound track and imaginative weapons for gun fights.It has a great hand to hand game-play and the levels give a sense of a large real size of buildings. It gives every bit a sense of being part of a good Japanese anime. The entire game is played in third person camera.
If the cheats are enabled in the game and one can switch characters and also switch fighting styles correspondingly. One can experiment with ninjas, henchmen or the antagonist himself.
The BadThe ending was abrupt. It left me wanting a cut scene at least. After an engaging adventure the game story ends without any closure.
I also found two combat moves with similar key mappings. This created some problems during game-play.
One cannot save games at will. The game auto saves at predetermined checkpoints.
Once a game is started, the options menu disappears form the main menu.
