...in some respects. It's not a horror game, and in many ways it plays very differently, but the satisfaction of slamming into bullet time and shooting a faceless armored goon while they curse and matrix-like shockwaves ripple through the air is distilled down into the very core of this game, and wrapped in a minimalist but satisfying story and packed with varied levels.
I too some video of me playing for friends, and hell, I think the thing that most sells this game is seeing it.
It's one of those games that can be a little bumpy to get going in, you can see my fumbling in the first video for instance, but once you hit that groove it's great. So long as you keep the john woo **** going you're practically unstoppable, in fact if you're in a 'stunt' you get free sowlmo and can't be shot, but if you fumble that at the wrong moment you die super quick. Levels are short and tight, with a little tasteful check-pointing, so throwing yourself back in after death is quick and helps avoid frustration. It's demanding, but satisfying.
