RATING: violence and moderately strong language.
infinity edge

Plenty to explore in this complex universe where the good guys do very bad stuff too, and the most human of beings isn't even organic. The Kilo-Five Trilogy follows those saucy spooks of the Office of Naval Intelligence and splendid special forces marines called ODSTs. "The Navy's here!" And if you get that reference, then you'll love this trilogy.
