I played through the entire campaign with a friend before reading IGN's mediocre 5 out 0f 10 review. I have to say i quite strongly disagree with that low of a score, here's why;
CONS: Quite Short... without going for a few grindy & or luck based cheevos ur looking at maybe 7hours tops medium dificulty.
Ea Servers wonky as usual for this series, friend & i disconnected randomly handful of times cause of ea server disconnection.. but overall not too bad.
No Multiplayer modes like Deathmatch or something even funner like Horde mode/survival or something similar.. just campaign.
Also unfortunatley there is only a 2day trial which seems crazy since nothing multiplayer based. I understand a little since they probably know how hard for games to sell these days, so ranking in a little make make up for that.. besides i beat it in 2 days..
Not the greatest story kinda cheesybut alright at times..enemies are cookiecutter. Not much variety
PRO's ; Graphics with HD Install are pretty nice..there are varied locales, decent detail in distance.. explosions are pretty darn sweet.. physics work well.. fun seeing enemy fly from grenade explosion..
Sound all around solid.. decent 5.1 use.. not so memorable but well done. buying & upgrade guns fine.. dont notice much impact from upgrades but better aim.. longer clip etc help out..
U can customize ur mask with up to 12 layers & look however you want in face.. very fun if ur into that.. no multiplayer hurts the fun by not being able to show it off in online matches.
you can buy different armor skins.. only cosmetic.
you can tag team kills & get bonus points for each mission.. like one friend grabs there attn & then u kill them & its a combo..
Just solid fun.. short simple affective entertainment for too.. Nothing groundbreaking but sure is a refreshing solid coop shooter. Not sure a buy at all but definite rental!!
Thanx Gamefly!! hope ur around for PS4 & Xbox720!!

Amazing game first of all.... you need to buy or rent this game because it will make you start pooping brix. This game has fairly 7-8 hours of campaign time but those hours will have you pooping brix the entire time. This game is not a waste of time.
has some color issues they originate around the helmet and hair of the characters.
the reloading has some issues as well especially with the snipers.
At start, the game will ask you if you want to download some improved graphics for 1.5GB, i didnt notice a difference graphics wise, with or without, it looked the same.
other than those i love this game, story, weapon customization, and character customization. DEFINITELY WORTH IT!!
