I was extremely surprised with the presentation of the game, from the graphics to the mechanics, and even the control scheme. The game is BEAUTIFUL. Amazing lighting. Best water I've seen since Uncharted. I know it's just water but, man, it's beautiful water. I can definitely see how this new release has attained great ratings overall from top magazines and websites/blogs. The multi-player is quite fun, and I have to add - better than black ops in terms of entertainment. The maps are intricate and extremely detailed, you can tell they put in alot of time with the maps - there are only a handful but they're large, not to mention the fact that you can use every inch of it by jumping anywhere and everywhere using power jumps. You all play with Nanosuits, which let you do some pretty crazy things and opens up what seems like a whole new type of FPS. You have an [energy] bar which let's you choose exactly how you want to play by consuming the energy, so you could jump from rooftop to rooftop shooting at people below, go invisible and sneak up on people for stealth-kills (stealth adds a whole new element for fps's), or increase your armor and watch the bullets bounce off you. Or you could power sprint all over the map, haha. You can quickly swap in and out of upgrades for your gun and suit, and the controls are simple and easy to figure out. The story itself is also very engrossing, and I would recommended at least playing through the first mission to become familiar with the mechanics of your suit - if you're trying the game just for the multi-player. Overall, the game is a success, they shot and they scored. Definitely worth a try.
nothing new and frustrating.your supposed to stealth but you kill someone while stealthed and every body starts shooting at you .very repetitive ..they have vehiciels but you rarely use them ..could have been great just not
This game is fun to play and with surround or especially with my great headphones the enemy and background noises are creepy scary. I'm also enjoying the story and that's unusual for an FPS. Enjoying more than Killzone 3!
