If you're a fan of Grand Theft Auto
and want to experience something beyond basic car-jacking, then this could be the game for you. If you would like to leap over buildings, then this may just be the game for you. If throwing a car into a crowd of thugs appeals to you, then this is probably the game for you. If jumping from fifteen stories and landing on the concrete to see the ground crack beneath your feet while joining a firefight intrigues you, then this is certainly the game for you.
When you start the game, you're an incredibly tough cop in a city that has been overrun by crime. You are tasked with eliminating the enemy by any means necessary. The only drawback is killing civilians. Kill a few, lose attribute points; kill a lot and you will be marked for death and may God have mercy on your soul. Like most RPG's, your character can increase your starting attributes. While the attributes are not in detail to the extent of RPG's, it is definitely less grinding to get what you want. There are five attributes that you can increase and they are: Agility, Driving, Strength, Firearms and Explosives. After playing the game for several hours, you will start to become the super soldier most people can only dream about. By doing anything that pertains to an attribute, it gets increased; if you want your firearms attribute to increase, for example, go around and shoot a bunch of gang members.
One of the major drawbacks to the game is lack of story, and I do mean lack of story. Aside from going around and killing people... there's not much else. Playing the game straight through will take about ten hours, but if you're anything like me, then there are hours of entertainment that can be found outside the story. Finding ways to create as much havoc as possible has always been my forte. Throughout the course of the game, you will find glowing green orbs that will increase your character's abilities.
