Gave 309, Got 132
Finished the game.
Got 40 of the 50 achievements in one playthrough - possibly one of the easiest to get 1000 on?
Story: Great story overall, seemed a little obvious in parts though and the ending was a little poor/easy. I love the attention to detail and quirky references to light throughout
especially the credits that get darker as you go along.
Gameplay: Very repetitive and little dated, we've seen it all before. Probably one of the easiest games I've played this year. The only times I died were from missing jumps.
Sound: Superb. Atmospheric, great soundtrack and love the radio/TV broadcasts. Good voice acting/script.
Graphics: Dated, pretty dreadful on the whole. Blurry. The lighting was great throughout though.
Overall, decent bargain bin game. I strongly advise that you don't buy it, rent it instead. The only reason I'm giving it a 6 is because of the quality soundtrack/story/voice acting. If it wasn't for these it would be VERY average.
