Jason says, “Theres a bit of deception going on, here: what I thought Id get was a more shooter-with-powers type of game, but what I actually got was more of an information-gathering, murder-planning rogue-like. If you take that bit of knowledge with an open mind going into this game, theres a unique enjoyment to be had, here. Sure, its shooting and movement mechanics are a bit janky and archaic, its a bit light on content, and its not going to technically impress anyone (assuming the glitches and soft locks are fixed by the time of this review), but I cant pretend the loop didnt deliver excellent banter along the way to learning what it means to be a top tier, digital murderer.”
