The storyline involves a group of a rogue military unit who have turned on their Cat superiors. In the year 20XX, hope rides alone as the single group of rats moves forward in a near futile attempt to usurp the catriarchy.
Touching on heavy and mature themes such as sexism, xenophobia, coming of age and even existentialism, the decisions you make in this game echo thoughout the game's final act.
Gameplay wise, this game's controls are responsive and intuitive, and the multiple difficulty selections such as "Bad Rat must Die" mode and the aptly titled "The Rat's Revengeance" mode make this game possibly the most non-artifical difficulty challenge ever crafted by human hands.
The graphics look even better than Deadly Premonition, and I thought that wasn't possible. This game looks just like what kids of the late 80's thought video-games might look like in the late 2020's.
Lastly, the sound is fantastic. With an OST rivaling the Sonic game Bioware did for the DS, smooth MIDI guitars will comfort you throughout tense and dramatic scenes.
Overall, this game is one of the best games I've ever played. My only complaint is that the game's ending leaves much to be desired, with a cliff-hanger involving the protaganist's brother being one of the Cats all along being followed by an after-credits dance scene to the catchy smash hit "All-Star" by Smash Mouth.
