In the end I decided I really liked it. The last level of the game is a bit dull and uninspired, but other than that it's a pretty remarkable game, and as reboots go they don't come much more fundamental than this.
First time they had an English-language scriptwriter too, apparently, and that's pretty obvious on reflection. There's little to none of the kind of campy b-movie bollocks that you got in the predecessors; it's unlikely to win any awards for its narrative, but at times it does manage to be kind of shocking, rather than just entertainingly dumb.
(Also the first time I used one of those kind of sketchy Steam Key re-seller sites. It worked, and I'm not banned? I don't think I'll be making a habit of it, though)
