Final Breakdown


The game is very fun to play and challenging for the most part. The mixture of thinking and shooting is balanced out greatly, which enhances the game experience. Unfortunately with the game being too linear and virtually no replay value this game is too short lived, which is a shame.


This game looks beautiful. The lush environments look great and the urban sprawl looks awesome. Small details like bullet casing and tracers enhance the graphics more. Character models look great and the physics add to make the game world even better.

Sound and Music:

The sound was great. Nothing spectacular but you're average sounds. The guns all sounded distinct and while they did not have the greatest feeling they felt very good and were great. More noise would have been better. Voice acting was done very well, except the Hitman. He sounds too scripted and completely lifeless. The music on the other hand was brilliant. Adding a great deal to the game and bringing some great sound to the game as well.

Multiplayer: none

With no Multiplayer this brings the score down. It would have been great seeing some Internet action here. Oh well maybe next time.

AI and Difficulty:

The AI is good, but far from perfect. One thing I really liked: your wingmen are actually competent.

Controls and Interface:

While the controls may take time to get used to, they get the job done. A good interface and GUI help the gamer out quite nicely and make learning the controls easier.


The lack of any replay value or multiplayer aspects really brings this game down. The game is great for the first time but after that it's all repetitive. Hopefully an expansion or free download will be released addressing these problems and adding to the overall score.
