Quite possibly one of the greatest single player games ever and extremely over looked.

9,2/10

+ beautiful, beautiful game world
+ fantastic atmosphere
+ extremely well done combination of gameplay elements, a true action-adventure game
+ photoshooting creatures feels very satisfying and works great with the rest of the gameplay
+ very interesting conspiracy story

- bad controls, resulting in not so satisfying battles
- nothing else

One of the best games of all time. If you haven't played it yet, you should do so as soon as possible.

Probably one of my favorite games in this style. Third person action in the style of Zelda refined and made for adults. Despite the terrible final boss battle a must play for everyone.

Story:
Year 2435 on the planet Hillys.
After an attack by the Domz, Jade - the protagonist - got involved into an underground network which wants to find out the truth about the alien invaders.
It's up to you now to investigate the connection between the attacking Domz and the defending army called 'Alpha Section'.

As I don't want to spoil any content:
Touching story! I'm sure you will enjoy it.

Gameplay:
While running, driving, sneaking and even flying a space ship, you have to take pictures of creatures or your targets of evidence and fighting the enemies who will show you that visitors are not welcome.

my opinion:
The mixed game style of sneaking and taking pictures as evidence on the one hand and fighting against the Domz on the other is not for everyone but after ten years this is stil one of the best stories in a video game I've ever played. It is just amazing!
It's really a shame that this game did never recieve the attention it deserves.

Definetly worth every cent - not to mention that it's on 75% sale quiet often.

other words I wanna share:
The default keyboard settings are kinda mixed up.
- 'E': Jump
- 'Space': Camera
It kinda reminds me of The elder Scrolls III Morrowind - It had the exact same weird switched bindings (Space was 'use' there).
Just Switch the two buttons and enjoy :)
