In the aftermath of a disaster that he may be the perpetrator of, our hero Cole McGrath, must come to terms with the powers he has been blessed/cursed with and decide whether to use these for the greater good or his own ends.
Set in the slowly recovering, quarantined ruins of Empire City the authorities have lost control and the city has been divided up between different gangs, each of which has their own separate identities and motives.
Your immediate power is the ability to fire bolts of lightning from your fingers, these are soon expanded using experience points that you gain from completing missions and side quests, all of which have a decent amount of variety, and don't get boring.
The powers you choose come in 2 broad categories, Good and Evil, and while they are similar, they retain their own identity. Choosing one path over the other will also have an effect on Cole's appearance, the missions available to you and the outcome of the game.
Graphically, the game is very good, Empire city looks the part and the gameplay is extended by the differing paths you can take. The voice acting is decent, not stellar but it doesn't descend into cliche and cheese territory either.
This game is well worth the money being asked for it and a game anyone can enjoy. Those of you who enjoy sandbox games will find this all the more entertaining.
