Just let me say that I went into this having played the original and with low expectations and even I was disappointed by how bad this is. First of all I beat the game in one sitting in about 4 four hours, and that was alone with occasional interruptions and such. Second most of the weapons suck and I rarely changed during the whole game. It doesn't help that you have to level up to unlock higher tiers but on a single normal difficulty playthrough I wasn't even level 5 by the end. Finally the ending sucks. Again I went into this not expecting much in the way of story, but it comes out of nowhere and is terrible! I've heard there are different ending based on difficulty but even on hard my best weapons didn't even dent the weakest enemies so I'd have to grind just to get better weapons...and screw that! Seriously this game was just a bore that made shooting hordes of giant bugs and robots repetitive and dull. The first games wasn't great but it was a load better than this.

I must admit that I did not play any other games in the series and until recently I wasn't fully aware it was part of a series. But this game was; for lack of a better word, awful! I don't recommend it in any way. There was almost no story, awful graphics and less than acceptable game-play. Not to mention how new it is... there are older games out there that put this one to shame. The one good thing about it is that it is VERY easy, so if you are hunting achievements and can put up with the boring/repetitive game-play you will be rewarded in one way I suppose...
