Sure the game's story is lame, sure the game is a little linear. Sure it has absolutely no replay value.
However, the game still has a very solid combat system, level design, and AI aren't total idiots. I actually had alot of fun with this game and thought that how it was made to progress from a black and white stealth ops blind-fire shoot-em-up, to a completely different game. And the transition was, in my opinion, seamless.
Play the game and give it a shot, because after looking at reviews on other sites and sites like this one, I've realized that this game is across the board highly underrated. This game progresses and evolves like no other.
For the team to be relatively unknown that made this, I think they are on to something. And that's why I rated this game as "ambitious". And I think that's what deserves recognition.
I'm also aware that the game is not an AAA title, is not revolutionary, has no replay value, has little depth. I understand that... All I'm saying is that the game is extremely fun, its very well put together, and it shows a promising outlook for the guys at Digital Extremes that made it.
