A cult classic.
Made with pride and passion, actually respecting and honouring the quality of the source material, this masterpiece deserves to be played by every serious gamer with a particular love of Arcade Shooters.
The cut scenes are of the very highest quality.
It's very open tactically, I mean surprisingly so, there are many ways to approach each and every problem, thinking and playing smart is rewarded.
I love the original comic strips and this for me is the best game based on a comic character I have ever played, specifically in the way it captures the very essence of the original concept, the way they did the character introductions, and they are 'characters', well rounded and well voice acted, never taking itself too seriously, all the while delivering a truly unique, challenging, exciting and interesting gaming experience, even for those who have no interest at all in the folk lore of Nu Earth.
It absolutely succeeds as a game in it's own right, one of the PS2's finest moments.
