Summary

For better and worse, definitely a Cryo game...

The Good

Based on the Philip K. Dick's homonymous book, this is an appealing game, not only for the license it bears but for the great, stylish looks it seems to have. This is where I felt compelled to buy the game. The first few minutes were exciting, the first FMVs, the menus, the graphics, the concept of the game, it seemed Cryo got it right this time!

The Bad

A few seconds into the first mission and every illusion falls apart. The mechanics of the game are terrible, I daresay unplayable. At least I couldn't play it. The AI of the characters is awful, a few seconds into the game and they already get stuck in weird parts of the scenario, where you didn't send them to in the first place.

The Bottom Line

In a word: Cryo. A great idea, a good concept, stylish visuals but simply unplayable. It seems every Cryo game suffered from this. High hopes, complete disappointment.
