It's set, if you don't recall, in an alternate version of the mid-20th century where Europe is collapsing under the ravages of a mysterious virus. The virus mutates its human victims into horrific creatures known as the Chimera - part-human, part... well, that's never quite revealed.
My fondness has nothing to do with the game-play, though it was a damn fine game earning 85% when I reviewed it. No, it's down to developer, Insomniac, choosing to kick the game off not only in England but in the streets of York, just a couple of dozen miles from SPOnG's offices; then to a fish cannery in Grimsby, out on the Humber estuary."
