Looks like a bit of a diet splinter cell?

Im enjoying this atm. wasn't too keen at first but its growing on me. The dialogues a bit shitty at times, but gameplay wise its pretty good. Its like a Bourne version of Metal Gear Solid.

The gunplay is annoying to start with too. What with it being an RPG its got a system kind of like Mass Effect 1, where the accuracy is horrible until you put points into weapon skills and upgrades. So even if you aim a shot up perfect theres still a randomness that'll make it fly wide. Started playing it by sneaking up behind people and choke-holding them and its made it much more fun, only ever use the pistol if theres someone out of reach (and the shotgun for when i inevitably **** up and get spotted )

The only other thing that really annoys me is one of the mini-games. If you want to hack a computer you need to do some retarded wordseach type thing. The only problem is that the grid with the letters/numbers is like the Matrix-code so sometimes its a right pain in the ass to do. If you've got fresh eyes its a doddle, if you've been playing a while and your eyes are a bit funny it can just be 50-50 luck if you spot it or not.

For £18 its not a bad game, but it seems like the sort of game that'll be hit or miss. I can see why it gets slated in some reviews but its just got something to it that makes me want to carry on.

Can't say I am either, feels like a 5 year old game.

Why not register and have your say?
