This game was released with a lot of hype that it failed to meet. It is a fairly decent game, but nothing to write home about. The controls are a little clunky but workable, and the graphics are fairly decent. It can be a little challenging at times, but overall is a fairly easy game. The multiplayer is not worth playing with games like Halo out there. A decent game to try, but don't expect too much.
I really enjoyed the characters, I wish they could have had more interaction. The first shooter fire was excellent. I was completely transported on this interplanetary journey. I didn't want it to end. Unlike some first shooter games even the hardest movments were easy to follow without the ill effect some games report.
Brute Force was one of the hotly anticipated titles to come out for the Xbox and maybe rival Halo, or so it claimed. But what it did bring to the table was solid third person gameplay with the incorporation of ragdoll physics which I don't know how any game can live with out. This game supported a poor story with some solid gameplay and multiplayer features that made the title last. The single player was short and sweet and the multiplayer is fun for a bit, but the coop is where the game shines. I bought this game when it came out, that night had my friends over to play it together and we beat it and some of the memories of that gaming session will last a life time.
The problems can be seen in the bland environments and the not so tight controls that tried to mimic Halo and kinda fail. Lacked Xbox Live and just stood out kinda dull except for the coop fun!
This title is a good rental no matter what, but if you have three other friends that would play it with you through, then you should really rent this game.
