This game is part FPS, adventure game and a virtual stock market game. I was impressed by how each aspect of the game works within the core game, and while the game could be a bit more solid in graphics, audio, basically making it more esthetically pleasing. Addictive, very fun and innovative are the best words to describe the game and the bottom line is this is a welcome addition to any gamer’s library so buy this game and enjoy it, I know I did.

This game in my opinion is just ok. It could have used a lot more development on the graphics engine and some of the gameplay. The voice acting isn't all that great either. The trading portion is kind of fun and some of the shooting elements is not bad, but it just doesn't feel polished enough. Even a lot of the textures and graphics are reused, so you really don't get a lot of variety in that department either.
The combat is just a little boring too, so it really is just an average shooter with some average trading elements. If you are looking for a triple AAA action or trading game, you may need to look elsewhere.
