After unending war with metastreumonic Force, the powerful organisation Secreta Secretorum that you belong to is finally ready to undermine the head-strong federation, despite an intense struggle for power.
Tons of cool stuff, cool ideas and neat visuals without sense of overall direction. Looks like "let's just throw it in" without asking why and what for. All that for nothing because you get your generic shooter in the end.
Seriously, despite all the possibilities gameplay consists of bots running around and shooting at you. This game needs a much better level design in terms of gameplay.
Great Cyberpunk FPS, a hybrid of Deus Ex and System Shock 2 on the Source Engine. Great gunplay, but theres plenty of options if you dont want to run and gun. RE4 style replayability along with a side mission mechanic with always differing objectives let you revisit finished areas. The areas are huge (for source) and detailed and you can level up to your hearts content. The game has its share of laughs, sometimes not completely intentionally, the audio isn't in English (which
I thought added to the atmosphere), the localization is sometimes silly, and the complexity of all the systems (cybertech, hacking, psiforce, research) in the game is staggering at first but you get to understand it a few hours in.
The first time I played this game, I thought the AI was basic, but once I reloaded the level, they began to use their full abilities.
The same can be said for this game, on the surface it seems simple, but deep down its just as complex, tough and fun as any AAA title.
Highly recommended, just don't get hacked... Its kinda embarrassing!
