This game is great. A DEFINITE BUY. Tons of replay value. Great graphics. Fun gameplay. GREAT STORY. This is the best FPS this year, better than call of duty or halo. The single player is what Ive experienced, ..havent tried the mp, mainly due to the stupid online pass that I refuse to buy! ANYWAY...LOVE THIS GAME.
Keepin' it simple. The game is entertaining, but totally overrated. Once the initial shock and awe wears off, you should be able to realize that the game is incredibly repetitive. The only thing that really breaks up the monotony of repeating the same kill side quests are the moments of Uncharted style set pieces.
Good villain, mechanically sound development, but just another typical shooter in the end.
It tries hard to pull you in, but if you look past it all, you'll see yourself doing the same things over and over and over.

First off this game is one of my new all time favorites. I have just completed the story line and it was amazing. It was a little slow at start but the last half has multiple jaw dropping moments and, the end takes an unexpected turn. Not going to spoil anything by telling what happens but, you do get to make a choice of two different endings.
The great storytelling mixed with a combat system that allows you to sneak around like a ninja pulling amazing finishers or going in shooting anything that moves. Making both in there own ways extremely fun.
The co-op on the other almost doesn't resemble the main story type game play at all. It seemed to be just thrown together and the small amount i played was boring and repetitive. you just run through a pre determined path shooting at oncoming enemies. there is no leveling system and you pick from pre made classes not allowing you to enjoy the full weapon system feel. Also being sneaky is nearly impossible. Was not impressed but still won't give this a 8 or 9 because i really enjoyed the the single player experience.
The online multilayer i haven't tried yet but, it seems like you have to buy a pass to even play it. So I probably couldn't play it even if i wanted to.
All in all it's a great game and, about to spend anther 20 hours finishing up all the side quests.
