the game has a fantastic soundtrack which suits the feel of the game perfectly, the gameplay is fast and brutal leaving no room for error, which helps to keep the adrenaline flowing, this game will suck you in until you've finished it, leading you along with questions that you want answered, and a steadily increasing level difficulty. the best 2d game i've played in years. the game has style, and substance to match. you might think killing people would get repetitive, but a trickling supply of weapons and masks (each mask giving a different 'buff' for use in any level) keeps the gameplay fresh, and there are plenty of secret masks to find, as well as a secret password which can only be put together after finding all the secret letters hidden throughout the levels, and without this password you won't get the alternative ending. for 10 bucks there is no reason not to buy this, unless you are squeamish ;)
