This is what I got….for 20 bucks!
It may not go down as the best game in history but it sure is fun! It “borrows” heavily (by borrow I mean copies) from Resident Evil 4 and Gears of War. The controls from Gears of War are applied button for button, even the run button with the motion camera following the character.
The graphics are everything you would expect from a game in this generation. (At some points the main character’s head looks funny in the cut scenes!) The game opens with a sort of feel like a Splinter Cell. If you played Resident Evil 4 you will also understand where a lot of the roots of this game came from.
I will repeat: 20.00 bucks will get you some entertaining hours in a decent action shooter. If you like good graphics and slick action this game will be up your alley!
I am not stating this game will win any game of the year awards…(This is not a review by the way!) There is a lot of things that keep this game from being a Triple AAA Title like Resident Evil 4 and Gears. We as gamers need to understand not every game has the be an epic quest or feat like those titles. The action stays solid throughout and the gun play is nice.
The feature that the developers of this game was banking on in this game was the Glaive. That is the claw/hand of the main character that throws like a bat-a-rang and stings like bee! It soups up with more beef when mixed with things like fire and electricity. There are some creepy moments in the game that MAY get a jump out of you.
I wished a few things were pushed in this game a bit more. The melee needs more power behind it. Multiplayer was kinda garbage, but the single player mode was a spot on delight! Give this game a try it you liked the mentioned above games. If it had a Co-op component it would be even sweeter!
This is just the humble opinion of one gamer who digs art. I like this game…for 20.00 bucks that is!
Check the game out in action and see it for yourself.
