This game gives you a chance to play as the enemy, Blackwater. I wonder if Blackwater paid them or vice versa. This is really low form of PR. Shameful morality. Good idea, otherwise, despite the execution- these types of shooters just cant live up to the COD / Battlefield titles. But you get more of a physical workout, so that's good, I suppose for shorter play periods.
If you are looking to play a game with amazing graphics or great voice actors or a storyline like a blockbuster movie, this game is not for you. I rented this because I saw that it works with Kinect, this is not a game I would buy, but it is fun. You can play with a standard controller, but I don't see any reason to do that, maybe it would improve accuracy, but that would take away from the experience of kinect. Controlling with kinect does take a little getting used to, and the aiming with kinect does jump around a little which can be frustrating, but I had the same issues playing child of eden. Being able to duck into cover and jump out to shoot the enemies is just gool ol' fun. There is a fun party mode for up to 8 people. In the career, there are many different paths to follow, they don't effect the story but it does leave replay value. Speaking of replay value, there are tons of collectables to find. One thing I would have liked is a gun controller that works with kinect, that would make this game so much better, Cabella's just came out with a kinect game that has a gun for kinect.
So, if you're looking to play something different on your kinect, this game is worth playing. Remember, this game will not compare to Battlefield 3, Gears of War 3, or MW3.
