Not just another shiny review from a Deep Silver programmer. Let me tell you why you can believe this score...

This game reminds me of why I got into PC gaming in the first place. Take an awesome post apocoliptic premise, an interesting story with thriller/horror elements (nice touch), and throw in some killer, unpridicable combat gameplay and you still only have the basics covered in this game. There is so much depth and charcter interaction to this free form game (let's not forget to mention the great voice acting) all in a very believable and beutifully rendered environment (it's like your really a part of the story. Seriously).
No cowboy run and gun shooter here (and thanks for that by the way). If you go running in guns blazing then be ready to get aired out by your enemies ducking for cover behind trees, rocks or what's left of that old, rusted jalopy. This is hardcore, realizm combat. The AI even utilzes military tactics like surpressing fire to pin you down and then sending someone to sneak around your flanks to cap you from behind. Wow!
The point is your no super hero and your not fighting a bunch of kindergardiners (no offense to Kindergardeners). It doesnt mean you cant out smart your enemy and do some pretty amazing feats. You just have to use your head and learn how shoot like your firing a real gun (so cool), because not every bullet is goin to fly perfectly due various fun, realistic reasons.
There is a lot of in well thought out, fun gaming here. Deep Silver is to be commended. I've been gamming for over 20 years, and, in the end, no matter how you package, present, or proclaim how great a game is, it all come down to this -- FUN! Best game I've played yet. Thanks a bunch guys from Deep Sliver! Please tell me your making a third...
