A bit of a surprise hit, the game embodied many of the great elements of both the FPS and RPG genres. For FPS fans, the action was fast, furious and well-executed. Want to run-n-gun, you can. Want to snipe from a distance, go ahead. Want to plow through a bunch of alien spiders in a tricked-out dune buggy, hey, that's in there too. From the role-playing side of the house, the leveling and skill system allowed developmental control over any of the four archetype characters available."
