In this fast-paced, first-person shooter based on Masamune Shirow's manga series, players take the role of one of four main characters: Motoko, who is agile and quick; Batou, who is strong enough to wield the heaviest weaponry; Saito, a sharpshooter; or Togusa, a (mostly) human agent who is not as easily detected by machines as the other, cyborg operatives. Players can use any of these characters in each of the game's levels (nearly 20 in all), allowing them to choose the best skill set for each job. As they progress through most stages, characters are accompanied by small "tachikoma" tanks, which offer support in battle and serve as emergency protection if the heroes find themselves outnumbered. Like the playable characters themselves, tachikomas can be custom-upgraded with new weapons and equipment found while completing missions. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
