I mentioned that I would be playing a whole bunch of shooters. Actually typing that made me depressed, so I decided to take a detour and play a not shooter instead. Parts of it ended up being creepier than F.E.A.R. if you can believe it or not. But honestly, that's not a tough thing to do.
This game has a very stylized, sterile look, with a few flat colors and not much dirt. It's not what I call cartoony at all. It came out in 2009, and I think it still looks good, but I noticed some round things being not so round. As you run through the levels, a few objects start to glow red, orange, yellow, blue, or green, indicating the way forward, and what I think is game pacing: whether nor not this is a calm moment or an active one. City signage is in English and Chinese, but I also saw ads with Cyrillic text.
The gameplay consists of running and jumping around the city, and fighting cops, often in the form of private security. It gets really annoying halfway through when that's about half of what you're doing. You need to disarm them, take their gun, and shoot the others. Here I was thinking that this was not an FPS. That, and there is plenty of vent crawling. Later on in the game, you pretty much have to wall run jump to get anywhere.
