Not a horrible game but it really wasn't all that long, and the cinematics are borderline annoying. Everytime you go to kill a "boss" it stops you short and they "get away"... Then you go chasing after them again only for it to happen again and again.
It was playable but if not for gamerscore I would have returned it the same day I got it, It went back a day or two later so I give it a 3 instead of a 1...
I've always had a soft spot for Mech games and really didn't know what to expect from this one. I'm not going to do the research, but this game felt very much like the Lost Planet games so it wouldn't surprise me if the same dev team worked on both games. Lots of collection achievements here so think twice before embarking on this game if you are a completionist. If you just want to play through a solid mech game with a decent story foundation then this is the game for you. I ran through this in 2 nights of gaming on the easy difficulty just to get a feel for the game. My plan was to play through again on hard, but COD Black Ops is here now so I gotta move on to that. =)
I will caution you that on-line for this game is dead as dead can be and there are a bunch of achievement points tied to on-line play. So, again I would seriously consider skipping this game if you are a completionist.
