Final Breakdown

Gameplay:

Regrettable, basic level design and a short single-player game don't make for anything more than a one-off play.

Graphics:

In this, at least, Raven did well. The island of Katorga-12 is beautiful, in an insane, post-apocalyptic sort of way.

Sound and Music:

Voice actors and atmospherics do very well; the music, on the other hand, is forgettable.

Difficulty:

Despite trying at times to be a horror game, ammunition or health starvation is never a real problem, and even the boss monsters are taken down rather swiftly.

Controls and Interface:

In this, Raven tried to do too much, and they put a number of controls in bad places, sharing buttons with other controls.

Overall:

It would have been good to be able to mark this as one to bide time until the next Bioshock, but in reality, it's a "rent and return" at best. Good premise, bad execution.
