Might have been the Mac game of 2013 if not for Bioshock Infinite

I actually picked this up on sale but it would have been worth full price.
Initially the game appears like it might be just another shooter with a little squad tactics thrown in but after an hour or two you realise nothing is quiet what it seems and the story drives you on and on. There are some nice environments and action sequences along the way and performance is very good with just a little stuttering as graphics are loading in.

Tired and unimaginative story line. I was bored within 10 minutes...

Absolutely great game, only gave it 4* because its steam based. Sorry not a lover of multiple programs running in the background. Graphics are really good. Gameplay is great. Love the storyline.
