However it also has the additional requirement of needing a US IP to activate on Steam. Keep this in mind if you're buying it as a gift for a non-US friend.
Update: I've spent around 6 hours now on the single player campaign. Haven't tried multiplayer yet.
The big "thing" with this game is gravity control. It was used well in a few early levels where the entire level is turned 90 degrees one way or the other. Later there is a free-floating zero G section which I found a little confusing as to which way I was meant to proceed. I doubled back on myself a few times after getting disorientated during fire-fights. The game doesn't have a map feature.
The AI partner is useful from time to time dealing with the cannon fodder, although in the boss fights tends to get shot to bits and has to be saved from death. Generally this leads to the player's death as you have to leave cover to revive your partner.
Only 6 hours in and they repeated the same mini-boss battle several times. I think they could have come up with a different type of unit to fight instead of repeating the same one over and over.
The controls are a little jarring (E to zoom?). But you can alter them to your liking so it isn't a big deal. Graphics show the game's console roots but are overall serviceable. No crashes or bugs reared their heads during my time so far with the game.
Overall it's an average 3rd person shooter that you've seen a few times before. Gravity manipulation is a fun addition, but most times you're better off shooting your enemy in the head than making them float around in the air.
I got it on sale for $10 during the labour day sale and am happy with that price. At the list price of $40, I'm giving it 3 stars. If you can get it under $20, I'd say it's a solid deal and would bump my rating up to 4 stars.
+ Some nice atmospheric music and soundscapes.
+ Nice looking graphics. Character models are well detailed with very realistic facial expressions.
+ Backdrop provides an excellent sense of devastation and destruction.
+ Gravity manipulation powers can be fun to use.
+ Zero-gravity sequences although sometimes challenging were a lot of fun.
+ Bloody gunplay which often involves shooting off limbs and other gruesome shots.
+ Environments can be destroyed.
+ Interesting game concept.
+ Can be activated on Steam.
