Avoid like the plague

Mind Jack is published by Square Enix, and seeing this name on attached to it, you'd expect big things. Great things. The basic premise of the game play is intriguing and sounds great, being able to "mind jack" enemies or bystanders and control them & help you in a fire fight, flanking your enemies. And you can go online, jumping into another player's single player game to either help, or hinder them by controlling characters, or allowing others into your game and seeing what they do.
This is where all the greatness for this game ends. The controls are clunky and difficult, as are the character movement and camera. The friendly AI is useless, running out of cover and straight at the enemy like they have a death wish. All of these to make the combat far harder than it should be and frustrating to the point of screaming. The story is uninspiring and forgetful. Voice acting is sub par and sounds like it was phoned in.
Overall I'd say this is a game to avoid, there is nothing good about it. No matter how cheap it is (most places seem to be selling this for around £2, it's not worth that). I would give it 0 stars if I was able to.
Summary: don't buy
