A space-environmentalist works to cull the people who don't recycle, but polluters aim to stop him.

An adequate movie which for once has a sensible major plot arc.

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?

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.
