Good weapon system, corny yet funny dialog and a microphone ordering system that shines at certain moments. Def a fun, action packed experience. A hidden gem in the recent quiet times of gaming. PICK THIS UP!

When the demo became available I immediately downloaded it. To my surprise it was quite enjoyable, but not something I would rank an 8 or above. Well I finally got around to renting it and boy was I wrong! This game is very good in all but one aspect. Let's get the bad out of the way first, the multiplayer. Unfortunately there are trophies for it, and because it is completely dead online, getting platinum for this is impossible. The few games I managed to do were okay I suppose. Felt no need for multiplayer in this game. Now the good parts, everything else! The graphics and animations are quite good with zero screen tear or graphical glitches. It does dip in framerate for some of the bosses, not too much though. The sound is superb with every footstep sounding real especially the robots. Playing this with surround sound was great. The music is okay, nothing wrong, but not too memorable. Length wise it will take between 8 to 10 hours to complete depending on skill level. Replay value imo is fairly high as once you beat the game on Survivor difficulty, No Mercy opens for you to go through again. The characters are very likable, and the story will keep you glued to the controller till the end. Without really ruining anything, I will say that I hope they do make the sequel for this. In conclusion I definitely recommend this game to any shooter fan.
