  • To those wondering how this is:

    if you played their last game Turning Point: Fall of Liberty then you already know whats in store for you here. A decent idea for a game that is utterly ruined by amateurish execution. Awful combat feel, awful visuals/animation and even worse dialogue. Had this been a budget game, many would probably forgive SOME of whats here but the fact that they are charging full AAA retail prices makes it a complete failure.

    If you absolutely have to play it then rent it. Do not reward publishers for unloading this kind of shovelware on to an unsuspecting public.


  • After going through the demo - I have to say it has some cool moments, The scenery looks pretty detailed, especially some of the tall buildings and open areas, which the demo offers very few of. Also of positive note are the HUD effects when you actually get hurt, it can be a little intense, but honestly - this is nothing new, its been done before.

    The gameplay is very weak, the small selection of guns is rather uninspiring at best, and the lack of general polish to the gameplay leaves a lot to be desired, its very point and shoot and you will be fine. The non-gun element where you pulse out energy seems absolutely thrown in with no indication of why it happens and what its supposed to do. I seriously played through the entire demo without understanding the right half of my HUD screen. I'm pretty sure it was my health, but i had no clue.

    I think reviewers had high hopes after seeing all the high quality clips and movies that have been teasing us for so long that the actual game is a bit of a letdown.
