A Hot Mess 0

SiN is a hot mess. Stylistically it apes the self-aware stupidity of the mid-90s action movie (think "Escape from LA" instead of "Escape From New York") and draws gameplay inspiration from a mix of Duke Nukem and Goldeneye 007, combining ego shooting and objectives to complete.The action is surprisingly fast, kinetic, and fun. The hero, John Blade, moves at a generally satisfying speed, the most common enemy types do not suffer from the bullet sponge bloat of many other games from the era, and t...
