Amazing level of character customization.
Especially for a first-person shooter.
Runs smoothly under both Mac OS 10.5 and 10.6.
Amazing setting under the sea.
Outstanding character development.
Big guns & cool plasmids.
Some minor bugs remain.
Disappointing frame rate in the final cut scene.
Final battle seems misplaced.
Game falters in final moments.
Repetitive after a couple hours.
Poor performance under Vista.
Technical issues mar the experience.
May be a little too easy for hardcore FPS players.
