Excellent

Co-op For the win!

Expecting very little from this game I was pleasantly satisfied. Solid Co-op features (duh. this game is designed around them) and some cool surprises too. I never expected to be able to use Aggro in the way this game does.

Online co-op or even split screen is probably the best, but if you dont have xbox live or a second controller (Or friends for that matter), the single player is really fun too. Although there are a few bugs with this game, your AI buddy really knows what he's doing. Occasionally he'll try to patch you up in the middle of an open lot and end up getting shot down himself, but otherwise he shoots at the right targets distracts the right people at the right time.

I especially like the ability to give kudos to team mates who do good, and slap the ones in the back of the head who mess up. Not to mention you can trade guns if you're jealous of your team mate's gun!

This game's got some pretty solid game play too. The control mechanism is a little weird for a third person shooter at first but quickly gets picked up and becomes natural.

Most of the commands and weapon switching involves the D-pad and some combination of the Left and Right bumper. Very good if you can remember what to push in what situation.

If you're NOT a fan of shooters, rent this game anyway and see how you like it. However, if you're a fan of shooters I can almost guarantee you'll want to buy this game. I was a skeptic at first and I still wish I had the $60 to fork over for this game...

Took about 5 hours to beat. Otherwise mostly a good game. Player movement can be hard to deal with in close quarter combat.

I don't like to give games a 10 unless they are truly deserving, but this game I felt deserved it. The campaign is amazing for a couple of reasons. First there is no way to get stuck in walls, or cracks or what have you. They have set it up so that even climbing a wall isn't difficult. Second the multi player is slow at the beginning for a few seconds but after that it runs as smooth as any game I have played. The two v.s. two is outstanding. I highly recommend this game to everyone who enjoys a great shooter.
