You’re the prime suspect following the assassination of the American President, you have to find out who’s framed you and deal with them. The story is in the American paranoid–prat traditional, and is so mind–numbingly simple it could have been plotted by Hollywood. Despite this, it is addictive; I found myself playing the game just to confirm whodunnit. I wish it hadn’t have been quite so obvious.
I love the visuals; the comic–book appearance is fresh. But after a while it becomes repetitive. Ok, so perhaps I was hoping for something with the moody atmosphere of Deus Ex, which is a little unfair. The play is pretty formulaic, but given the deeply cowardly nature of modern game design, that isn’t surprising.
The game has the following flaws:
Until the save bug is fixed, there’s no point in playing this game seriously; I recommend you play it at muppet level and enjoy the style, the visual wham bang thank you wallop.
