More cons than pros

This game is not ground breaking, it just brings back certain game titles back into just one game. You have first person shooter, you have a little role-playing, and racing. I had high hopes for this game, I figured it would be a very good Mad Max type of game.

There were a few things in this game that just annoys me. The enemy voices repeat the same thing, and they could be down the hall from you and sound like they are up close to you. There does not seem to be anything that distinguishes distance with sound. The AI is crazy. You will run out of ammo so fast trying to kill a guy that you shot in the head 2 times. So I really do not recommend someone who just casually plays first person shooters to get a fair advantage. The skins on the enemy models do not have much in variety, you could kill one guy and find the very next one you kill look exactly the same and they all have the same voice too.

The racing was very fun. It felt a lot like Super Mario Kart, or Twisted Metal. Nothing much to say about the racing portion except it will probably be the most enjoyable part of the game.

Also, this game auto saves too much. It auto saves before loading, even if you decide to restart a race, it saves and then loads. The wait time is insane and very annoying when you mess up and have to restart a mission.

Graphically, the game is beautiful, for the character models. The trash around the ground and buildings some of which you could see some pixelation. It seems the areas are very much like Monets, they look beautiful from far away until you get closer and it looks like ink spots.

Maybe this review is one sided, but I wanted everyone to understand the cons and if you have the same kind of pet-peeves as I do, then I would not suggest this game unless you just want to be frustrated.

Ok so this game was fun. i can honestly say that i enjoyed it BUT the ending was stupid. i wont spoil it but just know that it kinda ruins the whole game for you. it did for me. i still liked it but the ending was lame. it was abrupt and shallow. the graphics, the gameplay and all the side missions are fun. id say its a rent not a buy.

Rendering issue

I'm not sure if I'm the only one who had the issue on the PS3 with the rendering but it pretty much made this game a 6 for me.
