And here we come to one more underrated game. I played this game in 2008 but dropped it soon after I started. And the reason was poor storytelling. This time I was more patient and clever.
Well, firs thing first: now I tell you what this game actually about. Our protagonist works in some very advanced research facility where they develop suits which can manipulate time. But it is clearly understandable is he a scientist or some kind of science CIA agent to watch over scientists do not use their inventions in some "improper" way like your antagonist did. And head of research team was one badass scientist named Krone who stole of suits, blew up the facility, jumped back in time and made himself a dictator. Well, he oppressed the people, and the was a rebellion. And we jumped in time to the end of the rebellion.
This is the moment you star playing this game and you see only grey concrete around, ugly city, revolutionaries who look like hobos and terrorists, you get some ♥♥♥♥♥♥ pistol and machine gun, you cannot manipulate time, you get a feeling that you constantly loosing and finally you see how rebellion...failed.
This is the time when fun starts. Your suit sends you back in time several days before the rebellion. And you get a shotgun and grenades and this grenades are sticky...and electricizing. The stick to an enemy and he is screaming "Oh, my god explosives. Hit the deck" while been bitten by electric current and then BAM! And now you can manipulate time: stop, reverse and slow. Well you user "reverse" to get to some places to advance in the game, "slow" is for slow motion as in every other game except everything you do happen in usual timeline, for example you throw a grenade in "slow" and while enemies run in slo-mo and scream in slow-mo it explodes with usual speed, and with "stop" you can come to bunch of enemies and take their weapons from their hands and the listen how they say kinda "well, dude, you see we are unarmed so...move along".
And you storm prison and stronghold. And you get sniper rifle and rocket launcher and crossbow with exploding bolts and hand cannon with exploding ammo and machine gun with flammable ammo and electro gun. And you meet enemies with jetpacks, kinetic shield enemies, enemies who can manipulate time and teleport enemies and enemy heavy walker and helicopters. And then you hijack big flyers...well, a lot of stuff will happen in this game. And with all this stuff you kinda do some corrections to the course of rebellion and for it outcome.
And exploding barrels! LOTS OF THEM!!!
But still because of poor storytelling you will keep asking yourself: who are these people around you? why are you with them? why? why?
So if you put aside shady beginning, lack of storytelling and sudden end it is 2007 rail shooter at best. 7/10.
