    A good game, with a few major flaws, namely a lackluster storyline (no real plot development), too short and a little too difficult. The biggest flaw however: you get lost too much! The game doesn't have any 'ingame mark... Read Full Review

    This game is the example of the ultimate failure of the development. It's a disaster to the PK franchise...

    Plain and simple: after 5 years they release a game that has a smell of decay... Story and presentation: there is no point in telling the story, since this is a "gun and run" shooter.. Who cares anyway.. The presentat... Read Full Review
