For a game under $20 might be worth picking up. Has MP support so maybe that will be worth it.

About the Game

In 3100 A.D., global warming has caused the sea level to rise and engulf the streets of Brooklyn. The land is gone, but society rebuilds the city on top of existing structures, connecting buildings through a network of sky bridges. As the upper class literally moves higher, law enforcement abandons the lower parts of the city, and its less-affluent inhabitants.
To meet the upper city's demand for laborers, city leaders contract the Brooklyn Institute of Technology (B.I.T.) to clone a new working class. At the time, the B.I.T. Labs had made incredible advances in cloning; Neanderthals were chosen as the main focus of the research based on their physical resilience. The city's contract called for far more Neanderthal clones than were required, causing the excess and sub-standard Neo-Neanderthals to be discarded to the dregs of the city. The well established mob entity known as the Merchants of Brooklyn saw a lucrative opportunity here... use the bottom dwellers for high stakes fights to the death. It became the new sport of under-city kings.
In MERCHANTS OF BROOKLYN, You take the role of an elite Neanderthal fighter with a taste for blood. Having had your arm unwillingly detached from your body courtesy of a chainsaw, your new prototype biomechanical arm transforms into different twisted and brutal weaponry to aid you in the slaughter. Your goal: escape from the under city and free your brethren to take over the upper utopian empire to do with as you please.

Wow. Sounds like a good game.
Sounds really cool! I actually thought steam was opening up a real store in Brooklyn when I first read the article and I was excited because I live in Brooklyn. lol.
Looks like one of those games which might turn out to be a surprise winner--or a semi-decent time waster.
I just bought this a hour ago. You can break someones leg off and beat someone up with it. Whats not to like!
Looks good, and for the price why not?

Nice, so the CryEngine2 without the German gore restrictions.
