Disclaimer: This is my opinion and I mark hard. I have a minimum expectation for entertainmnet first and foremost. I do not see the point in rating EVERYTHING at 4 or 5 stars.
Score explanations (age fairness policy): 0=Don't go there; 1=I told you so; 2=a patient person may get some fun; 3=average game(minimum expectation); 4=good game; 5=exceptional game, I can think of no improvements [do not expect me to award this mark].
Graphics: technical(good); artistic(OK)
Game Controls: OK, relatively simple and user setup allowed. However, I found steering in tight corners fiddly. Aiming reticule takes far too long to narrow: am I a weapons specialist or not? Close up should be aimed immediately, at longer distances the timing would be understandable.
Player training module: OK, misses out data usage gizmo.
Sound: OK, really, how good does it have to be? (Ans: Stereo, to allow directional interpretation.)
Gameplay: promises much, but I just could not get on with it.
Conclusion: Have I been too impatient with this game? The long answer is, no.
If you enjoy bashing your head against a brick wall (you may see the joke in this phrase), this may be your cup of tea.
A narrative: A game should not irritate me as much as this one did. And certainly not within the first hour of play. I could not work out the map and did not want to spend any part of my life 'guessing' how it worked. I 'discovered' I had to double click the data. (Both of these could so easily been part of the training module, did I miss it?)
In the end I found myself bouncing off walls too often, trying to find my way out of another puzzle with only one solution.
'Avoid a body count', this is a covert mission. Really, then give me alternative routes to 'avoid the body count'.
A game should be entertaining, first and foremost. I should look at it and want to play it again and again, not see it as a chore.
When I enter a 'make-believe' world, I want to 'make-believe'. If I am the best man (or woman) for the job, then give me the skills, don't make me micro navigate or take 2 seconds to shoot a target fifteen feet away.
