Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

This game is by far one of the best, not on Newgrounds but throughout the Web. I was amazed at first
sight... the first time I played it though was just amazing but that kept wearing off slowly.

Definitely can be recommended, the thing that I loved about it was also the extra feature, arena mode. I would first want to start off before reviewing is that the game is good to kill off some time, not a game to come back and play it after becoming MAX LVL in arena mode and ending story you have nothing to do. Nevertheless, the time it demands to end the story is quite a bit and this game is challenging your skill of these type of games. By the way, the most enjoyable part is personally the
arena mode, the leveling up is a turn on that attracts me to the game to play it, how you slowly climb the skill tree and see your puny player to go from henchman to a total badass really got most of my attention which is why I loved it.

The art was really good. You kept it simple and not to complex which was great cause the game lagged at some particular moments which frustrated me, so if it were any more advanced art the game would be unplayable.

The gameplay was Excellent, it was something new so props to you for creativity, but that's pretty much cause of the Bullet-time and the Tac meter. I also liked the way and style of it, I've never seen a shooter that's 3rd person and navigating the player: ( North, East, West, South ) excluding jumping and crouching.

The game was a Deep impact when it came out, once it did it became so popular and such and till today it is, not to mention Pick of the Year. This game has a really distinct look and I still remember the 1st time of playing it and how satisfied I was, so I think I speak for all when I say, this game will kick ass and rock on for a really long time to come till it's forgotten.

I give it 4.5 stars cause of the lag and the fact that you don't really come back for more once you're done.
