It beats hands down any graphics and physics on any Next gen console.The first level, which involves stopping the citadel's reactor going critical and laying waste to city 17 is a magnificent graphical creation, the pulsating reactor astonishing.Get in to the game proper and it is excellent. Each section of every part of the game is graphically Amazing.So what of gameplay. Well, its fast and tough and you spend much of the game engaing the Zombie's and crawllers rather than the Combine, this would be OK but it suffers from the Doom 3 - stuck in a pitch black dark room with a torch (At leat here you can shoot at the same time) - and your torch battery frequently runs out.If this game were more expensive, then this flaw would make it a 4 star game - But at £15, you can't really complain, especially when there is so much to like...So the games plot.... Are you fighting for the right side - The Combine or the Resistance - Who is the man with the suitcase? Why do the Vortigons help you?Like a soap opera some questions will be answered, whilst more questions raised.Bring on Episode 2FPS fan? A must play?
