This game is alot of fun for the following reasons. You get to fire large weapons at large bugs, you can use tanks, mech's, and speed bike deals. it is non stop action, and looks like a 50's sci fi movie. its alot of fun... although if you don't like non stop mindless killing with little story line, its not the game for you.

This game is for you if like action, unlimited ammo, and massive bugs and robots...like me. Aliens have started an attack on Earth and the EDF equip you with tons of different types of weapons varying in power; armored peircing sniper rifle to a bomb so big it'll litteraly destroy a block. Just when you think that the bugs and robots couldn't get any bigger...they amaze you with a newer and bigger one.

But Be wise on what weapon you choose on a mission. Chose a bad one for the type of area of battle ahead...and you are doomed before the loading screen finishes. If you choose a shot gun on a open map..your done. Unlike most games this game does not slow down with more then 30 objects on the screen. You'll be sorrounded by 20 ants and 10 spiders while 4-6 robots that launch plasma cannons at you, alien fighters, and while your teammates run along side you fighting to live; all at the same time a drop ship is dropping more robots and bugs.

Now you just shoot on foot, you can use a Heli, Speeder Bike, Mech(slow but effective) and a Tank. And bosses..they're a good bit. One give out much...but i'll just say-- if you hate Godzilla...feel free to let him know.

Short Version: Grafics are good, detail is great but not...next gen. The game is a blast to play, tons of levels to keep you entertained, and if you need to feel challeneged, "try" Inferno mode. Plenty of fun weapons, point blank an enemy with a shotty and prepare to laugh. Unlimited ammo is always a plus, no need to cheat it in.

Bluntly Version: Buy it or rent it, either way you'll love this game.
