Lovely and arty, pretentious graphics aside, this is a brutal and quite disturbing first person beat 'em up. If this was set in the real world like GTA, it would have been banned. The stylised design and fantastical plot can't hide the fact your knee-smashing a woman in the face one minute, and beating up the mentally ill the next. That said the melee combat works well, and it's quite unlike any game I've played in years.
Good points: Looks & sounds beautiful, creature designs are great, good story & very realistic combat.
Bad points: You need a Steam account to activate it, repetitive gameplay, useless guns, a bit morally dodgy.
Verdict: For a cheapy this is a hugely impressive title that will no doubt have a cult following in the future.
