GiN loves Restricted Area [ Game -> Review ]

More info on Game: Restricted Area

Game industry News have posted a (beta) review of Restricted Area, awarding it 4.5/5 and basically saying it's great.

Each character has their own back story that is revealed, at least somewhat, in the opening intro of the game, which I thought was cleverly done as you ride the train into your new hideout area. Each character also advances in vastly different ways. The martial artists is not going to be able to wield a plasma rifle and Jessica can’t learn spells. But each one has their own special powers that make them useful and fun characters to play.

In a pretty neat twist, the characters actually get to meet one another in the course of the game as part of the plot-enhancing missions.

Restricted Area does a lot of things right. There is enough role-playing to keep a hardcore RPGer like myself happy and just when the levels start to get a little tedious, they seem to throw a boss level creature at you to shake things up. And it’s nice to find a game of this type that is not set in a medieval world. So for a sci-fi, shooter and RPG fix, sneak on into Restricted Area.

The opinions on this game from people who've played it vary wildly. I'd be interested to see those 'hardcore RPG' elements the reviewer mentioned, as well.
