Trivia

Certain structures, most notably the monstrous underground route Faith takes at one point, along with the writing on signs seen throughout the game may suggest that the game takes place in Tokyo or somewhere within the country of Japan. See more »

Goofs

During Gameplay, most scenery is comprised of very tall buildings, in a half-circle arrangement over what appears to be an ocean. However, in 'The Shard', the City below now stretches for miles with land in sight, and barely any tall buildings. See more »

This is one mirror I never want to peer into again.
6 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

I know I am going to be lambasted for not enjoying this game, especially here at the internet movie database where if you don't share the same opinions as the majority then your review is scrutinized. Well I did not enjoy this game much at all and I am not sorry for having that opinion so all you people who mark my review as unhelpful when all you are really doing is disliking it because I disparage your precious game go write your own review for a change. Seriously, you should not be able to vote on anyone else's review unless you have written at least ten of your own. To the game, it started promisingly enough, a bit how Assassin's Creed started. Seemed like it was going to be very good, that is until they make Faith (the main character) have a mission right off the bat that is not like her previous ones. Basically, they do not let you the player do the running and delivering stuff as it normally happens. No, instead you are almost immediately embroiled in a conspiracy so instead of jumping between buildings with minimal pursuit, for the most part you are being shot at from every direction. I so tried to make it through the game simply running, but I got so frustrated by the cops and security men at the end I just started grabbing guns and shooting everyone who got in my way. This was not fun, it was not original, it is simply a first person shooter where if you want to put yourself through the ultimate hell you will try not to kill these super shooting cops who never miss. What fun! Meanwhile, Faith's sister has been framed for murder so you must run here and there and face a barrage of bullets while occasionally having fun doing so when there are levels where you can tell where the heck you need to go. I mean I spent a couple of levels where I just could not figure where to run, or wall jump or do any of Faith's horrible controlled movements to advance. I do not know if this was simply a problem with the playstation 3 version, but yes I had multiple problems controlling Faith as a couple of her moves are a pain. Sometimes she can disarm a cop easily, other times I feel I pushed the button at the same time when the gun goes red and she simply takes a whack in the face. I also abhorred the run up one wall turn around and jump to the ledge on the opposite side routine. There was a good game in there somewhere, but unfortunately it is buried in a heap of very frustrating game play.
