Great story with good plot twists, graphics are awesome if you enable high framerate from the options menu, achievements are fun and completely doable, ending of game varies based off of game play, highly addictive so be careful!! My complaints are small and have to do with control related issues:(having your plasmids and the ability to hack objects on the same button causes unwanted EVE dumping) and no ability to sprint. The fact that you could not skip cinema events that you have already seen can be a drag when replaying the game for those missed out achievements. If you have never played this game then you are missing out. You will see why it has won so many game of the year awards.

Everything about this game is awesome. The graphics are great, the story is well played out and interesting, and to top it off the controls are easy to master. When the game originally came out, I was unsure about renting or let alone buying it. The big daddy on the cover had me confused about the game all together. Was this a shooter or an RPG. Either way I had no intention of giving it another look. However, after subscribing to game fly I thought to myself, why not try the games I never thought about trying in the past. So, I gave it a shot and I kick myself now for waiting so long to play this game. The graphics in this game are so stunning I found myself stopping periodically through the first play through just to marvel at the scenery. Once I starting playing it the first time I did not put it down. I mean literally, I paused only to manage the most human of needs; eat and drink. I am on my second play though now in order to see one of the other three endings and I am as equally sucked in as though it was my first time.
Bottom lines if you have not played this game, then you are behind on what a real game should be composed of. Rent this game now and if you enjoy it as much as I have then it will be a must buy.

This is one of the best shooters of all time. From beginning to end every moment of this game kept me wanting more.

The guns in this game are simply awesome and the level design is superb. The only flaw with this game would be the sheer shortness of this. I recieved the game on a Wednesday and beat it on Friday. I cannot wait for the second installment of the series to come out. Hopefully, they will make it more extensive. Regardless I cannot wait to see what the graphics will look like. Cause this game was produced in 2007 and the graphics are as good, if not better than some games in 2009! Overall this game gets 9 from me. The only thing hindering it from getting a perfect 10 is the length of it.
