Excellent

Fun game with a few design problems.

The good:
Guns, guns and more guns.
Loot system is well done and exciting at first.
DLC is being added for replayability.
Co-op mode.

The Bad:
Nothing to do once you hit lvl 50 besides farm New Haven.
Co-op issues with friends list haven't been fixed before DLC came out.
This game has no way to stop cheaters and modding of weapons which ruin the experience.
The game is way way too easy.
Fallout 3 is a better game with a bigger world and much more content.

This game could have been so much more but bad end game design and cheating could have been modified and prevented. Bottom line is that the combat system is fun but the AI isn't up to par and the game is just too easy. Even the DLC is short and there still isn't anything to do once you hit 50. Good game but not up to par with Fallout 3.

Very Good

Great Idea

This game had a lot of great ideas. I loved the idea of the "colored" coded weapons. Which is sort of like some of the mmorpgs like EQ2 or WOW with the rarity system. Also this game had tons of weapons just to start off with and some sick ones at that. I loved the idea of choosing your missions sort of like a GTA feel. The graphics were pretty cool looking also. It was pretty easy to learn the game and get to know your map and such. The tutorial was nice and it had a great feel of teaching you as you went. Those are the positives, on the negative side it was sort of hard to level up when you needed to (having to wait on enemies to spawn). Also some of the missions were kind of repetitive. Other than that I give this game an 8/10. It's definitely a must play!
