    YouTube longplays put it at around 4 hours so I figured why not give this a try.

    It's a typical shooter of its era, with interesting visuals and gadgets, but weak shooting mechanics and poor level design.

    I can't say I didn't enjoy the romp but don't go fellating a mediocre game just because it was released long ago. Just another 5-dollar game.

    Amusingly enough they created a real cinematic gaming experience by incorporating the elements of a completely other medium. The missions and levels were all heavily influenced by decades of action movies and had some nice change of approach between them and also let you use different weapons and your environment.

    It's definitely nothing amazing, it just has a cool style to it and most FPS games released at the time sucked ass.

    It was fun. The choice of weapons, level design and being able to use various environment objects as weapons led to a very tight and fun FPS. I replayed it this year and it was great as ever. It also had fun multiplayer.
