Wonderfully stunning game - A wonderfully stunning game in its visuals and in its story telling. The game play will be familiar to many people who have played dungeon crawlers such as Diablo III and Gantlet. The story is very futuristic and compelling. There are a few innovative game play moves, such as when you can plan your movies ahead when hitting the space bar and kill multiple targets in one fluid move. I’m in love with the comic book like style of the game and it appeals to my old school gamer sensibilities and I feel if you love games like Diablo you will really like this game.

Great choice for a new game - This game is fantastic! I have owned it now for a couple years and still play it frequently. Sort of like a “High-tech” steam-punk theme. Amazing artwork, intriguing plot, and game play is smooth and challenging. Dont be afraid to spend some of your entertainment budget money here, because you will be pleased. I have never had issues with this game, so I can’t comment on customer support, but that in itself is an outstanding comment. Have fun! :)

Just Different - This game is amazing. I just want to thow that out there. The gameplay in extremely innovative, the story isn’t the most wonderful thing in the world, but I did find the plot very engaging and sometimes even emotional, and best of all, you can play in again and again before it starts getting old. Love it. Love it love it love it. Only bad thing: A bit short for the price. That’s it.

Review by SDKGamer

Absolutely Beautiful Game!! - This game is a beautiful piece of art, from the epic colorful graphics to the interesting story, down to the creative gameplay. I throughly enjoyed it, but the reason I gave this game a review of 4 stars is because of the price. In my opinion, this game was far too short for the steep price of $19.99; you could probably finish the game within hours, the most being 1- 2 days. Although, it defiantly has good replay value because of its hidden “quests” and weapon power- ups. All in all, I would highly recommend this game. It is incredibly fun, requires strategy, and even pulls at your heartstrings.

Review by Cirque du sole contortion

THIS GAME IS AMAZING, INTENSE, AND KIND OF EMOTIONAL (BECAUSE IT ENDED) - This game is beautiful and awesome. In a game like this, the action is a given, and of course, IT’S GREAT. However, what I didn’t expect was the fantastical storyline and function(sub-weapon) options.
