I rented this expecting something awesome, as a metal head I loved the soundtrack, and as a gamer, i was sorely disappointed with the game itself.

The audio is great, if you like metal and rock, you'll love the audio of the game, plan and simple. They choose some great songs by some badass bands. Unfortunatly, thats about where the greatness stopped at for me.

The Battle as it started off was alright, get a guitar, get an axe, and chop people up, learning a few skilsl along the way...then they introduced the bad rts controls, and the inability to control the members of your army as singles...and it went straight Downhill from there. The "rts" of the game is essentially "quick, zerg those guys, now zerg those guys, now zerg...." you get the point. there really is no strategy to the combat in single player.

One of the features i thought was cool aat first was the vehicle you can summon, however after about 5 minutes after getting the combat upgrades and playing with it, you realize how clunky and unresponsive the controls are, and you will likely get very angry at how bad they are when you have to use the vehicle for storyline missions.

On the bright side of things if you enjoy a decent laugh here and there, and wonder what it would be like if you could enter the world on an amazing album cover, this would pretty much cover that.

Overall i give the audio a 10, the visuals a 8, the gameplay a 4, and the replayability a 4....a fairly bad game with a good soundtrack and okay visuals. Not really worth the rent...just go buy some metal cds and wait for something better to come along game wise.

even though i have a non-hd tv, graphicly great game, but i t does have a bit of frame rate freeze`s up game play bogs down at times, and it gets choppy, i have seen and played on a samsung lcd too and it still did this

overall not a bad game, the highboy he has is awesome, the music kicks butt, the story line is great, it kept me playing until the end, which is pretty cool btw, if part 2 comes out i hope they can get the glitches worked out
