It even helped that we're talking about a downloadable title, so the graphics would be more reminiscent of another generation and hence, I was primed to embrace the absorbing mental strain. However, although the game itself is fairly solid and it could be worth the price of admission for fans of the genre, I kept thinking there was something missing. I couldn't quite put my finger on it; it goes beyond the almost complete lack of a storyline or a lack of diverse environments (really, you're just always fighting on the moon so the landscape is usually identical). But then I realized that the gameplay mechanic as a whole just wasn't quite deep enough."
