I was very excited to get my hands on this game. What interested me the most
was the ability to fire over and around cover obstacles. This was something
that I never experienced before in gameplay. Unfortunately, the overall gameplay
has little to be desired.
The controls were easy to use as it was a perfect mimic of Halo. Using the left
and right thumbsticks for movement and aiming. However, even giving the ability
to change settings didn't help the fact that actually locking onto a target
was very difficult, and in my opinion hurting the gameplay greatly. The addition
of auto aiming would have really helped in this area.
Graphically, the game was a failure. Often the environement was so dark that
it was near impossible to find your target. Even with night vision it was still
a lose lose situation. The cut scenes were like something out of an antiquated
Sega Genesis game. From the very beginning of this game, you have no idea why
you are on these missions. There was just no storyline whatsoever.
The only bright spot of this game was the clever use of camera angles when shooting
over or around cover obstacles. Unfortunately, it was not enough to over come
the lack of storyline, antiquated cinematic cut scenes, and overall boredom.
