Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars
I'm usually an RPG enthusiast, but this one is something else. Think the movie 'Equilibrium' meets a strange futuristic steampunk dystopia. The game is fun as hell to play, though after a few hours it could tend to drag on, especially if you are impatient. The story seems to be fractured among the many game chapters, but the pieces it gives eventually uncovers the larger whole. The game difficulty curve starts somewhere around the middle of the road, but the learning curve is steep and it quickly cranks up the encounters to 11 before long unless you spend the whole game fighting the easy trash mobs. This doesn't mean its BAD, but if your expecting an easy game, your in for a disappointment. The fights go from just being simple 'run and gun to take out the leader' to requiring intricate strategies to take down a heavily armored boss.
All in all, its a very challenging game, but that challenge only amplifies that feeling of satisfaction you feel when you finally get that boss who's been whooping your butt. If you like your games difficult (though not entirely unreasonably so) with a matrix gunplay feel, you cant go wrong with this.
