I think Planisphere 2 succeeds as a tech demo, if nothing else. The map is enormous and lots of love and care has been put in to recreating the railways, wharves and parks that make up the cityscape. Up close, of course, it's not that hot, and the open environment has combat taking a backseat to exploration, which isn't so fun when most of the spectacle falls apart in close quarters. You can wring even more fun trying to hunt down the sixteen secret needles in the haystack, a lot of which will involve rooftop platforming. In the end, PLANISF2's nice to look at, but anyone who dislikes city maps or directionless adventures should give this a pass.
