An amazing-looking core experience (for the most part) that provides an exhilarating rush and lots of replay value.
Flawless runs provide a total rush.
Clean, striking visual design.
Fantastic sound effects and music.
Poor PC controls.
Animated cut-scenes are jarring.
Plot takes backseat to action.
Might feel too short.
Frustrating amount of trial and error.
Cramped jumping puzzles trip up the momentum.
Combat and gunplay are weak.
