Game Debate
31 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Holy crap (see what I did there?) I have so much to say about this game. Unfortunately, most of what I have to say about it isn’t too good. There are some things that this game gets right, but they are unfortunately buried under a large mound of things that it completely drops the ball on.
  • Pros: Decent Stealth System, Puzzles?
  • Cons: Animation and animation, Boring combat, Forgettable plot chars

  • Conclusion: If you break down the individual pieces of this budget-priced RPG, there isn't much that hasn't been done before. The basic structure feels like many other games, and the combat hardly reinvents the wheel.
  • Pros: Satisfying combat punctuated by brutal finishing moves, Stealth and puzzle sections are welcome diversions, Well-developed characters that occasionally utter humorous lines, Twisty level design with lots of alternate routes, Pleasant visual design.
  • Cons: Iffy collision detection, A scarcity of items to collect.
