This is going to be a quick 2 part review. First on the game, second on the DRM.
Firstly, the game is an okay Sci-fi FPS. There are two distinct modes in the game, the FPS part and the flying/shooter part. I perferred the FPS to the Shooter part as the flying is a little clunky in the controlls department. Aswell the flying shooter part also felt lackluster as there was a very limited enemy pool and the enviroments were a little dull.
The FPS was actually not bad, it was a typical cover based shooter. However the cover mechanic was pretty decent as there was parts in the game where you had to scale or descend and the cover mechanic was used quite well in those as well. In particular the end of the first chapter/mission had a real fun use of the scaling cover. There is a lack of weapon variety in the game but you can upgrade your weapons to change them up slightly as well and at the beginning of each chapter/part you can switch up your weapons and there are weapon chests in the levels were you can do the same.
Story was okay, not specatular, it was a little predictable, but still a interesting enough that you are interested in the story. As well there is lore hidden about in levels to add to the story if you so choose to read it.
Graphics were good and really enjoyed some of the level design, first level/area in particular.
Alright, on to the second part, the DRM. The DRM for this game is terrible to be fair. When you buy/install/launch the game you won't be able to. For some reason the Steam Keys don't end up in the third party DRMs (securcom? I think). Anyways, the process sucks and takes some time but the game does work in the end. Here is the proces I followd:
1.) Launch game -> doesn't work even using Securcom directions
2.) Contact Securcom, provide them with screen shots of steam key, they will reply it's not in their database and to contact Capcom support.
3.) Contact Capcom support and provide them with screen shot of steam purchase hisotry showing purchase as well as screen shot of steam key.
4.) Capcom support will email back that the key has been added to database.
5.) Launch game.
That process is a pain in the ♥♥♥ and is not needed, especially on such an old game and if you have a stance on DRM, don't buy this game.
For me, the DRM process was stupid, but the game does work and it was an enjoyable game for me so I give it a very hesitant recommendation. I recommend the actual game, I DO NOT recommend the crappy DRM that comes with it.
