This is such a weird, silly concept for a game. When I first heard of it, I was like, "Wha?" No interest in cleaning within a video game. Who would be interested in that? It's boring, monotonous, and... just a waste of time. Then I got the Shadow Warrior level included with that game. Went, "Ehhh," and gave it a shot. Played through it twice in a row, eight hours over the course of two days. Holy crap, it was good. SO good that I HAD to buy the full game.
Why is it so good, you ask? It's the most unique game I've ever played. Almost hypnotic when it comes to starting the game, grabbing a bin and bucket, and just turning off your brain for a while. Listen to some music, maybe a fun or informative podcast, and hours disappear in a flash. And that sense of satisfaction you get when you clean an area perfectly? Earn an Employee of the Month award plaque? It's oddly amazing for something as tedious and downright repetitive as cleaning. But it's SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good.
And I didn't even get into its morbid sense humor. The way you find body parts everywhere, little notes from people who used to work in these facilities you're cleaning, and countless other tiny (and not so tiny) details lends itself to some of the most memorable humor I've seen in quite some time. To roam around and find the results of something gone horribly awry is strangely fascinating. And now it's up to you to clean it all up. Get to work already, ya slacker! *shaking fist*
Play this lovely, lovely game. Just play it. It is WAY too enjoyable to play in the most bizarre way possible, hence why I've already dumped 76 hours into it (with many, MANY more in the future, I promise). You may love it, or you find it pointless, but either way, I can almost guarantee that you'll never forget it. Two thumbs up. And then, most likely, on the floor somewhere amid a pile of bullet casings and alien goop. Yuck...
