This game is the rare breed of game know as "so bad its good." It's worth playing.
Functionality/Playability: 4/10 Not so near broken mess
Gameplay: 7/10 Solid,but could have been so much better
Visuals: Don't really matter so rate how YOU want
Soundtrack: 3/10 Dull and uninteresting or out of place
Fun and Enjoyment: 8/10 (Seriously! Just trust me in my review)
Overall Score: 6/10 But really worth playing
The mechanics are pretty similar to a average fps, aside from a wierd default keybinding (try binding knife to space and sprint to shift and jump to e since you will rarely use it). The skill point system works well. melee gives you more points than headshots. If done correctly, you can finish a mission with 30+ skill points (the most I've ever gotten during a mission was 34) to spend on Health, Energy, Uber Shield, Emotion Time (crying and screaming while going on your invinsible murderous rampage) and Accuracy for the next mission. Helpful tip: max out accuracy ASAP! Your accuracy at the start of the game will be atrocious! Once you've done that, you'll be getting hundreds of headshot without even trying using automatic rifles and lmgs. Afterwards, upgrade everything else to your heart's contents (you won't have to worry about stasis shield unless your trying to become MLG with dope trick shots). Especially that emotion time! The SS or whatever will cower in fear as you slaughter their comrades while in tears crying like a baby (an invincible homicidal baby). The game's AI is.. interesting. They'll try to kill you but,, (for a better explaination, check out the gameplay from Inside Gaming on Youtube parts 1-4. You can go all the way to part 8 if you just want to watch Adam suffer while Bruce and James do their thing).
The cutscenes are interesting, but are often either confusing or just flat out make no sense. They may or may not make you question your sanity. The game explains what exactly is going on; so luckily, you won't have to play whatever garbage the first Ubersoldier might have been.
Lastly, the game's bosses (*SPOILER ALERT: Their are only four and you will be glad their are only four. Six if you count the two types of minis.)
Now, about the bosses (*NOT A SPOILER: JUST A HELPFUL TIP) The strategies you need to defeat them is simple for everyone of the except for phase three of the last boss. As James from Inside Gaming explains perfectly in part 6 of their gameplay on YouTube: "You just shoot 'em." No puzzles, no QTEs, or anything; just shoot 'em 'til they die. It may seem like its not working since their's NO INDICATOR OF ACTUAL DAMAGE (blood!) As Bruce pointed out after Adam defeated the first boss; even though every enemy you've fought beforehand has bled when you filled them with bullets and shrapnel. And its actually the only thing that works. Trust me and James. Its all that works so don't bother trying anything else!
Despite the game's bad (not quite terrible) functionality, the game is fun. I'm not sure how to explain it. It's just fun! Actually it might have something to do with feeling like a god when your emotion time kicks in from being a badass and start a murderous rampage during your temporary invinsibility. As well as watching the AI struggle to figure out how to kill you without killing themselves in a hilarious fashion. Like I said from the start of my review; this game is the rare breed known simply as: "Its so bad, its good."
