Really Bad

Could not finish this game (horrible)

Game mechanic feels so outdated (compared to others like Gears of War or Dead Space). Not being able to move and do a secondary action like shoot is not fun.

It angers me to a degree to think of how amazing this game could have been. Don't get me wrong, it's good, but it could have been great.

The Good: Amazing graphics, beautiful cut scenes, and good story, and cool boss battles.

The Bad: To say that the controls are clunky is a vast understatement. This was touted as an action game, and yet i found myself fighting with the controls as much as i fought with the enemies.

The knife is the most worthless secondary weapon i have ever encountered in a game. I am convinced its only purpose is to break open crates and barrels.

7.5 out of 10
