Blade Runner is a faithful recreation of the cyberpunk classic movie of the same name. Those looking for a traditional inventory-based adventure will be disappointed with simplified gameplay that only requires a sharp eye and some reflexes, but anyone open-minded enough will enjoy a tremendously atmospheric and fast-paced game. As in the movie, you play a cop whose mission is to terminate the "replicants," human-like androids that are wrecking havoc in their desparate attempt to extend programmed life span. There are many possible endings depending on your actions-- do you arrest the replicants or join their cause? There are also many action sequences in the game, but they are not so impossible as to discourage adventure players.|
In short, Blade Runner is definitely one of the most atmospheric games ever made and a must-play for all sci-fi fans. Just don't try to pigeonhole the game into any category, and you'll have a great time.Thumbs up!
