Got this on a so called "test magazine" (really, they all degraded to pure hype and advert trash long ago) as a full version bonus dvd.
The usual "wake up in a cell and be amnesiac" story is bad enough, then transforms to "you got a kamikaze implant and must do what bad boss says" and finally ends with "oh you wanted to stop the evil boss on mars making clones for nefarious purposes but, surprise surprise, you are one of the clones and get shot anyway after your successfull test run which allows evil boss to terminate the last bit of resistance".
(I belive that is the infamous "dark setting" that is mentioned in some reviews. Nice effort, mister player, but you will lose anyway and evil boss will triumph, nothing you can do about it. Onwards to Dystopia !)
Apart from some generic one person submarine shooter/ labyrinth level, level settings go from space prison to crime reigned city to russian megaprison to derelict spaceport to generic underground city on mars and finally to generic derelict red faction mining facility style with totally unrealistic amounts of enemies from the most irrational spawnpoints.
Getting to mars will leave you with an empty arsenal, you restart with a simple pistol type whatevergun.
Not that the guns are acceptable nor creative. The usual gun irrealism makes poor 5.56mm and below caliber more powerful than 7.62mm guns, as far as realistic guns like the AK74SU are concerned anyway.
So yea, its a shooter, its generic as hell, no praisable gore or ragdoll stuff in here, no special or believeable story, no challenging puzzles, nothing special.
Just generic reliable workmanship for the once in a while killing spree with acceptable graphics quality.
