The game provides you with so many powers that if I started discussing them all you will be tired of reading this review. As Alex Mercer I can get my arms transformed into blades and I can grow a shield around my skin which can protect me from even a tank bomb. Well there are other things too like stealing some weapon from your enemies and then using it against them. You can have plenty of weapons from hand guns to rocket launchers. In short you can get as much fire power as you want and can even shape-shift, you are in this game effectively what i refer to as the Daddy, you have more power than any other on the island.
With help of the above mentioned powers you can choose your own way of completing your missions. Whether you can do it silently or you can sabotage the entire building full of your enemies just by going straight in and hammering them around. The game gives you freedom to do almost anything, as the feeling of freedom is well imprinted in this game.

There is enormous amount of power in your character that makes him the best in whatever he does and more abilities will be given as you progress through the game.
