You know what? Its really rather good. Its a good 12 hours worth of bleak post apocalyptic survival so provided you don't mind the complete lack of comedic relief then all good. In all seriousness, its a very playable game with some very clever elements. Holding a gun with only one bullet (or empty in some cases) and facing off against 3 enemy makes for some very quick strategic thinking of who to take down first, and who you can bluff into surrendering. The world setting is fantastic and a very believable vision of downtown US after the apocalyptic "Event". It really does feel that genuine. The plot is good enough, though relatively straightforward and although a little clunky at times, the control are sufficient. Had a couple of graphic glitches, and one dead end point where an enemy didn't spawn so I couldn't make the next objective. Also find that getting the enemies into that precise point to make a "strike" was tricky and it would often revert to the "struggle kill" with no warning.
There's a good mix of the puzzle and platformer elements in the climbing sections and its challenging enough, even on the regular level setting. Whilst the game is quite "samey" in that involves exploring climbing and a bit of combat, its fulfilling eough
Its not a cheery game by any standards (its on a par with say, Dead Space in terms of optimism) but its one that made me pretty happy. Overall score is a very comfortable 8 out of 10
