This game had a lot of potential. I am sure that its online multiplayer is great, however that does not mean that there shouldn't be a split screen option. I got this game to play with my brother, and assumed that when the Gamefly says it supports 16 players, the game would have a split screen, maybe even a 4 player option. obviously, i was wrong. in addition to this omission, the game lacks a clear story line. its 4 campaigns are just 4 maps each, with no cut scenes or other plot device. its not a game for players who like to play a campaign and return the game. basically, unless you have PlayStation Network, don't rent this game.
Stay away from this game if you have any sanity at all. Its graphics are sub-par to every game out for the ps3. Its game play is also almost vomit inducing the controls are screwed up beyond recognition, and it says it is multiplayer on that back, but it lies. It seems to be thrown together by a pair of brain dead monkeys, even doing the voices. So, dont even rent it.
After you play the game you realize they took more time making the cover than the game. Controls stink, the animation in horrid the anamatronics of the game are putrid and the aliens sound like hobo's who have a sore throat. I would definitely not recommend this game. DONT GET IT!!!!
