Video game I nearly played in about 2011 or 2012 I think, after thinking it looked pretty good at a brief glance, but I never bothered in the end.
First play (August 2013)
At home, PC.
In August 2013 I saw it in the background of one of William Sherman's videos and thought it looked like a really sweet GTA-like game (probably what I thought before, but hey), and it also got mentioned on reddit again. Decided I should really give it a shot!
I did not get a good impression at the start - the annoying railroading (the first level is literally hold forward and tap spacebar to jump over stuff), obvious-console-port-syndrome, and obnoxiously interfering UI (press RM to extort, you gained XP! press enter to return to the game, press down (down!? that's no where near WSAD!) to do... something) did nothing to encourage me to continue.
However, over the next few weeks I used it to replace GTAIII as my podcast game, and it's alright but not as good as GTA. The graphics and fighting animations are good, but it's too small and you are restricted to the streets which gets boring.
