I played this YEARS ago - and now i find myself enjoying it just as much in 2013! It's a fantastic game! The physics are very reminiscent or Sonic the Hedgehog in how you can run around and build speed. The controls are a little slippery - but it feels more accurate and somehow even better.
I completely love the attention to detail - as I left the game while writing this review, I noticed the character was slumping and later had fallen asleep altogether. I'm a sucker for details - they just make the world feel alive and real for me.
