"Great game! Great price!"
5 stars"

5 stars may be a little extreme. I mean the game technologically isn't cutting edge, but what it lacks in bleeding-edge, it more than makes up for in fun factor.

The gameplay is just brilliantly polished. The areas where you are required to sneak along (theres lots of these), you really get the impression of impending doom if you screw up. The use of lighting is brilliant, creeping along, hiding amongst the shadows, avoiding the light. Very cool. This is almost Splinter Cell mixed with a light version of Knights of the Old Republic.

Theres several mini-games from hovercraft races, to bandit cave chases to playing a shufflepuck-like game in the local bar (have to get all the pucks onto the opponents side of the table).

The characters are well designed and are usually fairly amuzing. From the rasta rhinomen mechanics to you fairly thick sidekick in later levels Double H. Some of his comments are hilarious.

My only gripe is the dialogue. Not all of the dialogue is spoken, theres quite a few text lines which IS kinda dissapointing.

Description

The vast, peaceful planet of Hyllis has fallen under siege by a relentless alien race. After a devastating battle, a Hyllian named Jade is relieved to find that the planet’s defense forces, the Alpha Sections, have saved the populace from certain destruction, as they have always done in this ages-long conflict. But when Jade takes a mysterious reconnaissance assignment for IRIS, a rebel organization that challenges the official version of events, she must question her own perception of truth. Angered and shaken by what she discovers, Jade begins a harrowing journey to get to the core of the conspiracy. Armed with her camera, aikido staff, and resolute investigative skills, Jade sets out to expose the dark secrets behind these alien invasions and to liberate the minds of her deceived people. Pushed to the very edge of her physical and spiritual will, she soon discovers that even these limits are not what they seem … Her quest for the truth knows no bounds. Features:
