->''"It's funny how adherents to cyberpunk, a genre based around futurist ideas of rebellion and non-conformity, so often themselves [[ClicheStorm conform rabidly to cliche]]. Yes, it's a dystopian mega-city. Yes, everyone who applies for a business license gets a free neon sign. Yes, the city's divided between the nice upmarket district where The Man lives and the hideous slums where everyone with dreadlocks or a shaved head becomes evil and joins a gang, and the rest of the population stands around staring at flaming barrels all day trying to figure out what everyone ''else'' sees in it. And the main character has the kind of wildly unnatural hairdo you get from sticking your head in a 7/11 Slurpee machine. Now all we need to fill the cyberpunk checklist is a shitty hacking minigame, a faintly retarded futuristic Christ allegory, and at least one character named Decker. Bish, bash, and Barnaby bosh!"''
