Most Gore Ever...

I only got this game for a comparison to the PC version and for the gamer score but it stacked up pretty well. It's not quite as shiny, has less anti aliasing, less antistropic filtering and runs at fewer frames per second but it looks pretty good as far as graphics. For an X Box game it actually looks really good. You've got a team of, well they call them witches and warlocks of the Army Chaplan Corps. They each have their own special abilities and weapons. It's really cool. You can switch between characters at any time to utilize each persons special abilities and there's 6 characters. 3 guys and 3 girls. One of the chics is a sniper, she has a special ability called ghost bullet that slows down time and allows you to aim it as it's in the air. The camera actually follows the bullet, and you can put it through 3 enemies. So you can actually head shot 3 people with one bullet. It is so sweet. One of the guys has dual pistols with scatter, standard and explosive rounds, one guys has a magnum pistol and a mini gun with tons of ammo. The others weapons are pretty standard. If you're into horror first person shooters at all you have to check this game out. One of my buddies hated it because of the dialogue which I thought was funny. My cousin loved this game as much as I do. So 2:3 ratio, not too bad. You go back through different periods in time so the enemies change pretty frequently. This game has the most gore of any game I've ever seen before, there's blood everywhere and guts too. Check it out.

I just want to say I think this is a great game. I enjoyed it thoroughly. I thought the story was great and I thought the dialog between the characters was great as well.

I am not sure what folks look for in a game these days, I am OLD school, I remember my first Atari w/ Space Invaders for Christmas.

I have watched the games get better and better over the past 30+ years, this game is definitely worth the rental.

Great storyline. Pretty fun and occasionally challenging. There were a few times that level design made objectives confusing or enemies would suddenly appear behind you even though you were in a corner, but those issues were few and far between. Great visuals of gore and horror. All in all this game is super entertaining and totally worth checking out if you're not a complete FPS snob. Not every game is half-life, kids.
