You are part of an elite squad who freeze time to move near cover and get shot in the head.

I guess they didn't play their own game, because there are obvious flaws. This would have been more fun if they got rid of the whole moving around like an RPG. Like the old X-COM ga-- oh wait, the old games are just better. Why was this game made?

A fauldschool resource game that would have made for a fine free Flash game, but is instead for-pay.

Fair.

The Koreans invade the United States, and you are a freedom fighter who hides behind invulnerable cover in an on-rails playable cutscene.

alt-F4 as soon as I was placed in a "home base" which forced me to RP-walk everywhere. Inexcusable.

An underclass punk, returning from a ten month flight from the country, happens upon a suicide that reveals that she is part of a larger picture.

The lead actor is particularly good, as is all the acting. The story is poor in a number of places, and it is particularly jarring to have literal-faggotry forced into it. I don't mind there happening to be gay characters, but when they're gay characters being gay because gayness yay gay gay as opposed to just being people who happen to be gay, it's so obvious and so insulting as to taint the whole fucking show.

I'll flag this as liked and lightly-recommended. It's really not all that awful, but it rubs me the wrong way. It's like girly science fiction drama-whatever.
