Nearly five years in the making by Studio Radi-8, NeoTokyo borrows inspiration from Masamune Shirow's Ghost in the Shell and Katsuhiro Otomo's Akira, plunging players into a future Japan fraught with strife both internally and geo-politically. When an attempt to alter Japan's constitution to allow the country to perform military actions outside of its borders fail, the military attempts to overthrow the government. Their initial attempts fail, but with the formation of Group Six, a military force sworn to protect the constitution, tensions are again on the rise.

The game looks completely amazing. As a fan of works like Akira, Ghost in the Shell, Appleseed, and many others, this is a world I've wanted to explore for a long time. Of course, once I do get in there I will be shot dead in seconds, but I'll really absorb the spot where my corpse lands.

DISCUSSION

Been waiting for this for years, so far not impressed.

The visuals and sounds are great, the gameplay tho not so much.

A jump exploit that lets you move Quake3 fast.. vision modes with no real use, active camo that only lasts a few seconds.. 2 classes can use the [AWP]..

Just a GITS skin/sound/map pack for Counter Strike TBH
