This game is just so bad.
From what I could figure out from the games horrible story narration, you are some captain in a war between PSI and some other guys in a steampunky world. Unfortunatly that is what I managed to hear, everything after the first 2 cutscenes I just skipped, couldn't listen to all those bad voice actors, it sounds like someone just went into recording studio and read the whole script while heavily sedated, but not quite enough to make him unable to read it.

Even though the game concept has some nice ideas such as multi-layer combat, it hasn't been utilised right and it makes the whole fighting experience awful. Developers tried to make a third person shooter/ prince of persia enviorment interaction game which resulted in me wanting to smash the head against the wall. Combat is god awful, from my 38 minute gameplay I noticed that the enemies have more accurate weapons. Trying to use a machine gun resulted in wasting 30 bullets on a single enemy and hitting him maybe 3 times. To be able to actualy kill an enemy with a machine gun you had to be at point blank range and pray to gods he doesn't focus his fire on you.

Apart from bad voice acting and bad combat, there is also badly done character movement. Controls are badly responsive.
Graphics are bad, textures are all glittery almost as if the sun is shining at a wet surface, mind you in this case every surface would be wet and sun would shine from every corner of the level to make it glittery.

To conclude, if you are interested in buying this game, just don't, spend your money on something done right. If you are still not convinced that this is a bad game, I'm sure you can dig up some youtube gameplay videos for the game, try watching those then, maybe then you will change your mind.

Jesus christ in a wheelchair driving over a cliff into Judas wearing a sombrero...

This game is atrocious. It's not like Bad Rats where generally everything is so horrible. This games mechanics of "Parkour" using the term lightly as it's just like throwing a brick against a wall.

They've made every single aspect of the game into a boring mess of a game. Shooting? No gun feel, sounds or accuracy for that matter. My friend and I were actually using melee attacks all the time because everything was so horrible.

"Parkour?" The developers thought "Let's make it like assassins creed, EXCEPT! We throw away all the charm of finding your own rutes, restricting you to "Glowing" paths like Mirror's edge, except just being bad. The "Parkour" is slow, tedious and at times unresponsive.

The story is a mess, cliches of Shamalan caliber, no character development what so ever. Horrible voice acting, animations are so bad they look like robots.

Generally the game works, but it's TORTURE! Do not buy this game. I only completed it through determination and having a co-op partner. Save everyone you know... Please, my brain has lost more braincells than I can count...

Great USP: vertical gameplay, a lot of ways to aproach enemies, ginormous open levels with almost no skybox, you can walk or climb pretty much everwhere you see. But the execution lacks. Get it in a bundle, but not just so.

Fat and unwieldy are two words to describe this game. While it uses many exotic contextual actions, dynamically grabbing pipes, ledges, and other objects in game to ascend to higher safer perches, the game just falls flat on it's face.

I believe the description of this game is a "vertical" fps, which I think they meant to show by this emphasis on climbing and acrobatics, but I think what went wrong is the aiming, which felt clunky, enemies didn't seem to die fast enough, mostly because you're flipping and climbing everywhere just trying to find the guys, and an overall unappealing level design which was consistent of mostly blank brick buildings and bridges leading to nowhere special.

If you can get over the aiming and the level design, you might be able to take this game. But given the size of the game, I feel like I could use my space better than with this game.

I have played a lot of Kuso (Garbage) games in the past, and I can in fact tolerate a lot of them, and try to give them a chance. And I do believe some games just get completely unfair treatment from the reviewers and this game seemed to be getting a lot of bad reviews from many websites, so I gave this one a try.

My goodness where do I begin.....

The control. The control is not bad. It is CHEAP. You move around like you are playing some really old PS2 game, and the whole aiming....I. CAN. NOT. AIM. May I ask why??? Even if I did aim at the target correctly, EVERY FRIGGIN GUN IS USELESS!!!!!!! So, there is this gun that appears to be a machine gun. IS IT A TOY GUN??? IT CERTAINLY SHOOTS LIKE ONE?!?! And DOES IT EVER HIT THE TARGET???? And I can't even tell if I am actually giving any kind of damage to the enemy or not, it's kind of like Resident Evil: Raccoon City, I can't tell if I am seriously hitting them.

And the voice acting....my goodness do they just read or something?

And I have no idea what is up with the story. What's going on? Why does he say that? Why does she say that? Why does this guy appear all of a sudden? When did I get here? Why did I get here? Who are you talking about?? What ARE YOU talking about??!?!?!?!?!!

it just makes me wonder, did the developers even test this game when they made this? Did they think it was ok like this? I mean, the characters move like they have some kind of issues (Or I should say they move like PS2 or old PS1 characters) and the whole combat is not even fun to begin with.

Can I recommend this game? OF COURSE NOT!!!! There are so many better alternatives out there, and why should anyone seriously waste their life time on this? Because certainly, I would NOT want to.

1.4 out of 10.
