While the platforming is excellent, the rest is rather shallow
24 May 2015 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

I have been playing this game for quite a bit and it is PERFECT for those who want the fantasy of running around buildings, jumping, wall running and other stuff doing something that resembles a chase scene out of the District 13 movies in a first person perspective. Although, with that said there isn't that much more to this game then being chased or getting into places with the occasional combat section.

So the story is that it's set in a dystopian future (which this game defines poorly) you have Runners, messengers of some kind which now is done by these people running around rooftops "living on the edge". One of these runners. Faith must prove her sister is innocent of murder while also uncovering a conspiracy that could destroy the Runners.

While the controls are actually pretty fluent for the most part. there isn't really anything more to this game then the Parkour. and while it's fantastically done - the combat for one is an afterthought. Trying to do combat in this game goes like this "you find a cop, run towards him like an idiot and pull the trigger until he falls down" Half the time, it's easier to run past them and jump across to the next platform. The story is also something that is an afterthought because after a while I just didn't care about Faith trying to uncover the conspiracy because I don't know what the rules are to the world we're in.

Onto what I like, The platforming is king in this game. Running around in first person and jumping across buildings gives an adrenaline rush half the time because you're not looking over the shoulder of Faith like something most other games would do and each of these sections usually has something in them that is just awesome, like one example is Faith running over the top of one crane pointed facing another and you jump across them. It's stuff like this that makes the game worth completing. Just don't really play it for anything else.

So at the end of the day while this does have moments of fun I would say that this is a rather shallow experience. While the platform jumping is something I can't rave about enough, I have to be fair and say the story is not interesting, the world is poorly defined and the combat, more often then not isn't worth even trying. If you're a fan of Parkour then I would suggest getting this game.
