    I own the game but agree it's an under-rated title.

    Bit dated now graphically but definitely worth a play-through. Honestly, I didn't care that much for the actual gameplay, but the story was great.

    The story was really messed up, didn't care too much for it.

    Agreed with the first few posters - this game was really neat and is worth a playthrough if you don't own it.

    Gotta say, the normal $29.99 price is an absolute joke for a 7 year old PC game no matter how good it is, though. Wth...

    I have had this in my backlog forever and keep forgetting about it.

    It's really worth it for the story. While a bit dated, the gameplay holds up pretty good as well. It's a steal for $6.

    I just installed it and played for about 10 minutes. Graphics looked surprisingly good. I'll definitely give it a full play through soon.

    I get its not for everyone but that was kind of the point. It shows the horrors of war. It's the Apocalypse Now of shooters.
     
    MavericK and Commander Shepard like this.

    It's short, play it. The game is certainly different, but something I often recommend. Without throwing spoilers, it makes you uncomfortable, think in weird ways, and question what's going on. Not sure if anyone's read Wolf in White Van by John Darnielle, but they give similar uncomfortable emotional responses to something fun you don't usally associate with those activites.

    This game made me very comfortable.

    The graphics have aged good, It is defiantly worth 6 bucks.

    No offense, but I feel you might have missed the point of the game if you were comfortable doing the things the game allows you to, "Choose" to do. (Avoiding spoilers)

    No I got the point of the game, enjoyed it, and was very comfortable with the choices. What a blast, got be be honest they should make more games like this.
