Time and plenty of Orks to kill

Ok so, I went into this game looking for something to play until Gears arrived and it did it's job. Frequent weapons upgrades and plenty of killing makes this game a worth the rent and the story isn't to bad either. Of course playing the other games from this series helps but for a newbie I was very pleased.

P.S
Can anyone explain why all the Space Marines have forehead herpies? Everyone of em have those two spots on the right side and I couldn't help but to ask if that was a uniformed thing.

Fun, but gimmicky, worth a rent

First of all, I'd like to preface this review in all fairness by saying that I only played about 40-50% of the total campaign. From what I did play, it was repetitive and kind of predictable, but I think if you're not overly picky about what games have to offer you'll like this game.

I had heard from someone that they were getting this game and that particular person is very picky, so I decided to give it a shot just based on that. I didn't know anything about it and if I had to describe it I would just say that it's basically Gears of War with space marines. It's a solid 3rd person shooter, but nothing I would ever spend money to buy, although I do admit playing it with the volume blasting made it a lot of fun.

If you're trying to make a choice between this game and another game, I would say that this is something that you can probably wait to play. I think it'll be in the bargain bin in a couple months.

Great Potential but Untapped

Only thing that keeps me from rateing this higher is they had sooo much potential for multiplayer with such a vast universe of gear, weapons, etc.. yet that potential goes untapped, a pity.

Story is amazing and only wish it was longer, I want to know what happens to a certain someone that becomes obvious at the end. :P
Fun gameplay, love being a one marine killing machine.
