What do these ratings mean?

Pros:
+Story with a twisted ending
+Soundtrack is above average
+AI performs well
+A little philosophical
 
Cons:
-Maybe a little too philosophical
-Choices? Where? Not Really?

 
In the beginning there is only one real choice: Should I play this game or not?


I was faced with a choice of whether or not I wanted to spend a decent amount of time beating this new game. After reading a couple of GR reviews I decided that it may be worth seeing what this game has to offer.


The story is pretty solid and very creative. But I have to say that it only gets better and better as you move on towards the ending of this game. Even though the story was entertaining, I personally believe that it could have been better. Maybe more cut scenes and cinematic effects as well as a more in-dept story line would have created an even better video game experience. But maybe shooters are not supposed to be too complicated.

The graphics and the soundtrack are okay and in-line with modern day expectations. The game has a nice AI which seems to create a fairly nice firefight experience.

In the end it all boils down the choices as you realize that those choices do not really exist…
But it does make you think that this games is something exceptional…at least for a little bit. So it is definitely better than the average video game out there.
