BLOWING GUYS UP, KICKING THEM AND "THEN" BLOWING THEM UP, SHOOTING THEM IN THE "AREA BETWEEN THE LEGS" (WOW THIS EDITING SYSTEM IS REALLY STICKY WITH TERMINOLOGY)....GREAT FUN FOR THE FIRST HOUR OR SO. BUT AFTER DOING THIS A COUPLE OF DOZEN TIMES, IT GETS A BIT OLD.
YEAH YOU CAN GET CREATIVE AND THROW GUYS AGAINST FENCES AND THE SUCH....BUT IT GETS OLD FAIRLY QUICK.
I SAW THE INTERVIEW WITH THE DEVELOPERS ABOUT HOW THEY WANTED THIS TO BE A DIFFERENT GAMING EXPIRIENCE FROM THE SHOOTERS OUT THERE. OK, THEY GOT THAT AS IT IS "DIFFERENT", BUT THEN WHAT??....
GOOD GAME BUT NOTHING TO WRITE HOME ABOUT, AS LEAST IN MY HUMBLE EXPIRIENCE AS A SHOOTER JUNKIE :-)

With Cliffy B at the helm I fully expected this to be a Gears knockoff. It's not. While there are alot of similarities to Gears, I think that could be because of the use of the Unreal engine. It's also kind cool to hear some familiar voices from Gears too. This game is a simple, on rails shooter. While there is nothing groundbreaking in the level design, the ways to massacre enemies makes that a non issue. Kick and shoot, slide and shoot, use the weapons secondary fire. There are so many ways to kill the enemy it makes every firefight fresh. The leash, for all intents and purposes, is the star of the game. It brings a totally new dimension to what could otherwise be a standard run of the mill shooter.
This game looks good, plays great, and the controls are tight. I wish it had a cover mechanic, but it's not really needed. The voice acting is above par and the sarcastic wit had me laughing out loud sometimes. I just wish there wasn't so much hardcore profanity. Kinda took something away for me. I'm an ex Marine, so by no means am I a prude. But sometimes it is way too much. Please tone it down for the sequel guys.
Otherwise this is a fun shooter. I know many people are going to complain about not being able to play online cause they don't get the code with the rental. If ya wanna play online pony up the cash.
I recommend it, especially for a rental. Lots of fun
This game f###ing rocks. I have played it at least 3 times through and still have not gotten bored of it. Each time i play i find cool new skillshots to make and constantly find new hazards. And if you don't like the game because of the point system, its not the game, you just suck. I gave this game a 10 because even my dad, who hates Microsoft, loves this game. It's fun, original, and interactive. I hope they make a second one or it will be my boot in there faces. Ha just kidding, but really they need to make a second one.
