Your character is completely customizable although you cannot choose your name or gender (you are Michael Thorton -- sounds like Michael Westen). You don't get a lot of appearance choices either but the rest of the game is customizable. You can choose between spy, engineer, or a combat career that will define your skill specializations. Or you can choose to be a recruit (starts with less but is customizable and you can choose your specializations if you choose to become an operative after your first mission) or after beating the game you can play as a veteran with more skill points to start. You get skill points every time you level which allows you to add 2-3 ranks in your skills. New ranks do give you some nice active or passive abilities and most don't seem like they are wasted. For example, after 5 ranks in stealth your active ability Awareness (allows you to know the direction and facing of nearby enemies - invaluable for stealth) becomes passive and is always active. Also, you gain perks during the game based on how you talk to certain people, how you use gadgets and solve problems, as well as your combat results.Read more ›
Graphics - I will say that I am not graphics junky like other people might be. When reading reveiws about these things from other websites, people kept comparing it to PS2 graphics. WHAT A LOAD OF CRAP!!!!! Let's not forget that everything can't look like Uncharted. The graphics in this game are great. The cutscenes are well done. Your character's facial features really express the choices that you get to choose when in a conversation with someone. There is only 1 level that I can think of that things got a bit blurry, but no game is perfect. And people actually move their mouth to the words that they speak. One critique that was noted was how the animation looks when Mike (your character) is crouched. Please don't believe the hype. I have played games where the smallest details that should be looked at gets overlooked because of hype. It was not a detraction in all the hours that I spent playing this game.
Story - This is the most intricate part of the game and even most reviewers got it right. If you ever wanted to know what it was like to be a spy, this would be the game to play. Every decision you make, comes back at you full circle towards the end of the game regardless of the choice you make. Let me be clear and say that there is no Good/Evil choice in this game. When I say that, the lines are not clearly drawn in the sand.Read more ›
The PS3 version of the game does lack the polish of AAA games like Uncharted 2 or Final Fantasy XIII. However, those games were or are PS3 developed exclusives that maximized use of the hardware. If this game were a PS3 exclusive I am sure it would be closer to that level of smoothness in texture rendering. Secondly, there are delays in some animations and screen load times which I imagine is because of a lack of time investment to utilize the PS3 hardware properly.
However, the successful execution of this type of gameplay has been sorely missed for many years, and the story and gameplay freedom you get from this game are top tier and overshadow any minor technical flaws. This game has a very high replay value as the story can change in so many substantial ways from how you initially build your character to the choices you make throughout.Read more ›
