The only thing I knew about the first game was that there was no way my pc would run it. I was pretty stoked to see C2 coming to the 360.I had High expectations considering the hype the first game got. Is this game hype worthy? Don't think so, but it is pretty cool none the less.
I knew nothing of the story or even what the game is about. I like the way the story is unfolding. A little bit at a time, kind of like a mystery novel. Bits and pieces of the story are revealed a little at a time.
I am enjoying this game a lot. It is a competent shooter with tight controls and an intuitive controller configuration.
The star of the game is the incredibly cool and BA Nanosuit. It brings a new dimension to what would otherwise be another decent shooter. The nanosuit does for C2 what the leash does for Bulletstorm, or the Chainsaw Lancer does for Gears. I have read some reviews where ppl are comparing C2 to Halo. Really??? I don't see it.
The levels are open but they always lead you to where you need to go, Plenty of ammo, can be challenging in spots. Looks amazing. Probably in the top 5 games for graphics on the 360 to date.
While C2 is not groundbreaking, it is a pretty cool, competent shooter, and a lot of fun. I recommend you give it a shot.

i ended up beating the game today.
i went and bought it at best buy without having any knowledge of the game which was a risky move and i thought it was going to be a game like prototype where it was in 3rd person..when i saw it was a fps i was ehhh because i have a ton of fps games. this game turned out to be really challenging. you will die in the game because you have to be real smart when playing and everyone makes mistakes. i found myself making strategies hiding behind cover running to get ammo and switching gun and switching between stealth and armor mode. if u make the wrong decision it will be fatal.
the graphics are real nice and better than a lot of games and its real fun killing the aliens because it does not take just 1 shot to kill them and its a real challenge.
the only problem i had with the game was the checkpoint saves. you get a few checkpoints in the game where if you die you will go back to that checkpoint. the only problem is that between the checkpoints the mission is kind of difficult and if you die you go all the way back to checkpoint. Now this would not be a problem for me if the game was simple but its not. you can spend 10-20 minutes killing a bunch of enemies getting ammo hiding behind cover going into armor mode saving your energy and then you get far and get killed by 1 alien and then have to do it all over again. that really got annoying so much that i had to take a break when i died multiple times in 1 part.
all in all it was a good game and fun to play. rent it or buy it

This game was awesome. The graphics were incredible and the overall game play was fun. The guns are ok, but the suit and suit upgrades are a nice touch. The story of the game is easy to follow and is well put together. Overall this game is GREAT.
