Could have been so so much better

-Ok graphics.
-Fun multiplayer.
-in a way like socom.
-Make and play as either cops or bad guys in multiplayer.

-Did not live up to the hype.
-ok Graphics.
-no multiplayer besides online or system link.
-too short of a story.

Bottom line this game could have been so much better, graphics and story wise. Just to clear the record THIS ISN'T A FIRST PERSON SHOOTER LAST I CHECKED!!!! this is a third person and over the shoulder (I'm going to call it second person) style shooter. This game was delayed for its first release date. Within the time frame of being delayed and actually being released eidos could have done soooo much to this game but chose not to, so this game has no excuse for its flaws.

Really Bad

Beyond Bad

It's hard to know where to start with all the problems this game has, but I will stick with the most prominent one. This game has the worst targeting problems of any first person shooter, hands down. And really, when you are looking for a first person shooter, you kind of want something that allows you to...well...shoot at things and actually hit them. In addition to the targeting problems, the camera controls are nearly impossible to deal with leaving you in situations where you are getting shot at by someone and you can't even find them to shoot back. Large group shootouts are a nightmare and you will find yourself dying countless times as the enemy blows you to pieces from across the room before you can even get off one good shot. I found myself lobbing molotov cocktails and grenades half the time just to have a chance. If you are looking for a ridiculously frustrating game with bad voice acting then this game is for you. Otherwise, do yourself a favor and stay very far away from this title.

This game was alright i liked the whole cops and robbers thing i just wished they would have made it so you could choose the side you wanted to be on.
The gameplay wasn't all that good it had a few problems when shooting. I shot at one of the gangsters right in the head and messed with a clear shot. They were shooting a little bit to the side and were doing alot more damage then i was to them.
The soundtract and some good artist but some of the songs weren't all that great.
I did like the setting of the game and i liked how it looked when you went to gang territory when you were a cop or gang member.

Good Guys of the game:
The Music to the game was pretty good.
The voice acting was good.
The gameplay was alright.

Bad Guys of the Game:
The shooting was bad when you shot someone in the head and they didn't fall over.
The switching back and forth of the cops and gangs.
The graphics of the game were to bad but they could have been better.
