A bloody, frustrating mess of a game.

Summary: Parents need to know that this is way too bloody and violent for kids. It features a detailed back story concerning international terrorism and large-scale biological attacks on civilian populations. This might be too frightening for younger teens, who are well aware of the threat of terrorism.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Gabe Logan's debut on the PlayStation 2 isn't even that, since he's there to advance the story only. And this mildly interesting story is marred by terrible controls and confusing level design. There is admittedly a lot to see here, but only the most masochistic will be able to experience it all. This could have been a good game. It's not.
