No, this is not Half Life 2. And no this game doesn't have anything to do with Half Life 2, but one thing is for sure this game would not get the attention it deserves if HL2 was released. I don't say this often about a game which I haven't played yet but, this game is a prime candiate for GOTY and it deserves it too. Made by UbiSoft in Montreal, Canada it's one of the greatest gems in 3rd person action adventure. If you're looking for some great graphics, superb voice acting, acrobatic moves that are both fun to watch and perform: this game is it. Forget HL2 for now, kiddies, The Prince is back and he's gonna kick your ass 5 times before you hit the ground. (Yes, he has the ability to do it too ) I'll be playing it tonight and giving a review if I can peel myself away from it.
