Great graphics and style, terrible Facebook problems
I enjoy the game, although it does get monotonous after a while. The graphics and style are unique and definitely show cinematic flair.
I'm not very happy with the fact that I have to pay for the game AND do IAP to advance. One can theoretically move ahead without IAP, but a lot of grinding is needed. I'd prefer one model or the other -- the hybrid (neither fully paid not fully fermium) makes me feel somewhat cheated every time I play.
A more serious problem is that the game pushes you very hard to integrate with Facebook, including some achievements which are unreachable without Facebook integration. Worst of all, once you give the game access to Facebook, it is later impossible to revoke that access. There's no obvious in-game setting to do so, and if you revoke it from Facebook's side, the game STILL tries to launch Facebook and re-request access every single time the game is launched. This is doubly annoying since the game freezes occasionally, so relaunching it is a multi-step process of opening the game, having the game open the Facebook app, clicking "cancel" within the Facebook app to prevent reauthorizing the game, then returning to the game. Frustrating!
Eye catching action!
First thing, I find the art style very striking. For a John Woo game, it has a nice Sin City aesthetic to it, and one of the reasons this game caught my eye.
My one major complaint is the controls: majority of the games is sort of on-rails, you're constantly pushing forward...sometimes the controls go bonkers, and I find myself getting trapped in between cars, or I get disoriented.
Still, I'm oddly addicted to this game, even though it can be shameless at times (getting an achievement for purchasing cash? Seriously!?). It's more of a quick fix than something that will have me glued to the phone, but it's good to have when I got a little time to kill when I'm outside the house.
I never write reviews
But this game is awesome. Nothing groundbreaking, just a really fun and well designed game. Simple controls, fantastic artwork, smooth play, challenging, but not frustrating.
In app purchases are a drag, but this is one of few games where you really don't need them to progress. The alternative (grinding) is still fun and challenging.
