This is not the best game ever made. It's a good game with many nice touches: multidimensional NPCs, graphic details, pretty weapons and vehicles. But the basic fact is it's just a first-person-shooter like "Return to Castle Wolfenstein", "Half Life", "Doom" and a legion of others. The story is intriguing, spawning weak novels. This game has created a very large loyal army of fanatic followers (or vice versa). Beyond the hype, make no mistake this is a very enjoyable game, very much worth the money. But the replayability wears very thin after a while then it becomes another game on the shelf.

Anyone not touched by his performance in the Tiny Tim death timeline has a heart of pure stone. His interaction with the rest of his "family" is thoroughly convincing and heartwarming. Roger Rees is magnificent as Ebenezer's nephew, Fred. It's easy to feel he really wishes to connect… Read more
