Especially for less then $10, this is a GREAT BUY!
I played it for a while, and kept getting stuck on this one part, and I put it away for a while. I recently started back up again, and I can't imagine why I got stuck on the part that I did. But it was a great game.
The graphics still look pretty good; it isn't exactly painful to look at. The animation is pretty good, and I only had my A.I. getting stuck a couple of times. The sound is great as well.
The story was rather developed. It seemed like it kind of grabbed you, and pulled you in little by little. At the beginning, you sort of just skip through the cut-scenes, but after a while, you start to watch them.
There is also a bit of "horror" (if you can call it that) in one of the missions, so it is not like it is this regular shooter throughout the game. The game also tweaks your emotions a bit. There is also some subtle humor in the game, if you are in the right situations. For example, there was a time when I had my invisibility on, and I walked into a supply room. And I was just listening to the conversation between the 2 enemies taking "inventory". It went something like this:
Soldier 1: "Shotgun shells?"
Soldier 2: "Check."
Soldier 1: "EMP Grenades?"
Soldier 2: "Check."
Soldier 1: "Naked pictures of your sister?"
Soldier 2: "...........Check."
The only thing that really bothered me was the ending. The rest on from here contains spoilers, so read at your own risk...

The ending was rather unsatisfying. Throughout the game, I got a little attached to Nathan (The main character). However, at the end, he goes into a big factory like building, and he has to destroy this generator thingy. After he does, there is a big EMP explosion which, you guessed it......takes his "powers" away. This made me rather upset, and wanting more out of the series. But it is still a great investment of time.
