An intriguing storyline, and a unique interpretation of the future, the game is fulfilling in some aspects, and distinctly lacking in others.
The storyline is complex and intriguing, and the multiple methods of solving problems are varied and unique for the most part, but after some practice, become fairly obvious later on. Elegant in its pacing, the game however can seem forced and sometimes, for the sake of avoiding repetition, awfully convenient (see pickup helicopter landing about 10 meters away from a missions main objective, but only upon completion).
The character development is lacking, the number of augmentations mean the variation in final character is limited, with probably 2 distinct character experiences to be had. The social methods do add to this though, as they can make parts of the game simple, or very hard.
An elegant style of gameplay, they have worked hard to make an FP-RPG that has character and a powerful story, just not quite the finished product in terms of openness and variety.
