A surprising gem

If you're looking at the screenshots for this game and thinking, "This looks like a bare bones FPS with absolutely no character," let me tell you: you are only a little bit right. The environments are this game's biggest letdown, being rather plain and uninspiring. Beyond this, though, everything really shines. The characters, while at first glance seeming one-dimensional, become surprisingly likeable. I found myself becoming rather attached to them by the end. The feel of gunning down the robotic enemies and seeing their parts fly hither and thither is utterly visceral. We have the game's gorgeous visuals to thank for this. If you can get past an occasionally-cheesy story and somewhat banal environments, Binary Domain has a lot to offer.
