1st free weekend: Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex First Assault Online is the worst dystopian allegorical travesty since Morpheus did car commercials

Ghost in the Shell is about the horrors of technology.

Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex is about using a computer to shoot people for fun in a deathmatch setting pretty much cloning the Call of Duty/Half Life Engine. It’s basically an e-Sport with decoration.

It looks pretty and has a lot of production value including Richard Epcar’s voice as Batou! However, it’s not any different of a game we haven’t seen the last 10 years. It lacks a compelling story that Ghost in the Shell had and is really a milking of that franchise, having nothing to do with the fears of technology and actually is technology we should fear, using machines to weaponize humans.
