When I heard about this I was expecting a poor man's Gears of War. This however kicks GOW's butt all over the place. The fighting is smooth the controls are responsive the voice commands are fun.
This has a really fun story with Characters that I actually care about with some plot twists that I did not expect. I really hope this is the start of a new series because I would definitely buy the next one.
Very entertaining arcade style shooter. Tons of action. Good for a couple of play-through's over a weekend. The weapon vending machines you encounter blink like a slot machine when you make a purchase and if you're lucky you'll win a bonus - I'd love to know what it's saying in Japanese when it spits out your prize. :)
