Radical Entertainment who also made other sandbox games such as The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction, Simpsons Hit & Run and Scarface: The World is Yours have done another fine job. The game engine doesn't impress immediately but after a while you'll wonder how they managed to have so much going on on-screen without the 360 crashing. During some battles there's SO much smoke and dust in the air that you'll need Alex's infrared vision just to be able to pick out enemies.
It's vaguely comparable to other games of the ilk and gameplay draws inspiration from games like Crackdown, GTA, Just Cause, Spider Man, The Incredible Hulk and Mercenaries 2. The story is well padded and the Web of Intrigue must have hours of video footage to pad it out.
