The game is very playable. I had a lot of fun on the missions, and it was hard to stop playing to write notes for this review. I had to set a timer on my phone just to keep my head in the real world and remember I have a job to do here. And the cast is amazing. I had to stop playing long enough to look up the names of the voice cast because they sounded so familiar. Some of the voice actors/actresses include Susan Sarandon, Brad Dourif, and Michael Madsen. And Carrie Fisher blabbing over the loudspeaker throughout the game. I love when screen stars come over to the game world for a gig. Like when Marilyn Manson and David Duchovny did Area 51 for the original Xbox. Just beautiful.
The big man on campus is known as the Outsider. Supposedly he’s both good and evil, yet neither. He gives you, as well as other people, his mark, which grants you the powers you use during the game. Though it seems he doesn’t give a crap how you use them once you get them. One of those free will scenarios, I guess. Kind of has a religious feel to it, right up until you are given the mission to kill a bunch of high-ranking church members, then you’re back to wondering what the hell this guy is all about. I just stopped caring midway through and just had fun taking people out. The means justifies the end, as you will find out.
