A game that was buried beneath a lot of other releases even when it just came out.
While not a perfect game this is a very enjoyable experience. The combat mechanics are pretty standard third-person shooters but it works pretty well and breaking robots down into parts is a satisfying experience. The cover system is a bit rigid but allows for plenty flexibility. Graphically the game is clean and smooth, while never spectacular there are some nice effects and it fits the setting.
Bossdesign was enjoyable and creative, at times the controls combined with the obvious focus the AI has for your main character where a bit of a hassle but nothing that ruined the game.
The story is entertaining and does keep you guessing as to how it will end, it however most issues would be solved by the invention of a metal detector. The friendship/loyalty system is basic in a good way and you do feel like it makes a difference in both the story and the interactions. Troy Baker pulling of an oddly satisfying British man only adds to this.
PC controls are pretty solid, it suffers from the usual porting problems where the button icons correspondent with the actions and not with the key it's bound to. If you happen to have a gamepad plugged in this is highly recommended for the 2 sections where you man a turret.
As it looks now there won't ever be a sequel, a shame because a bit more refinement and expansion on the basics would elevate it to a superb game. All in all though I really enjoyed my time with it and it comes highly recommended.
