Every once in a while a game comes out that blows your socks off. This game goes above and beyond in all areas. Superior story telling, combat, atmosphere and music. You feel immersed in the world and unable to quite playing. The details in the game world show the care given by the development team. This game was not rushed and will serve as proof to what games can accomplish. This game accomplishes what Half-Life did for its time period.
I think Ken Levine said it best when referred to games as a better medium than movies and books because you pilot them. You get to participate and experience them. This is nothing short of a masterpiece and should be purchased by everyone.
