I bought into the hype of this game and was sorely disappointed. If you've ever played a FPS then you've experienced this game -- all the same conventions are there in droves, and the atmosphere and familiar 'scary circus' / '1940s' vibe is not enough to bring it out of the doldrums. Put it this way: the first three things you do in the game are pick up a wrench, smash through some rubble blocking a door, and crouch to crawl through.
