The game is ok.....the story is very run of the mill, and the gameplay feels sloppy. The game tried too hard to be Gears while not at the same time ( if that makes any sense). And the thing that really stinks, if you are an achievement junkie as myself, most of them are with co-op. So, if you don't have anyone that is playing it, majority of achieves wont work. Got so bored with it sent back half way through. Couldn't muster through the rest of this sloppy game.
I have to get the negatives out of the way first. The graphics were dated, there were bugs that wouldn't let you progress through the story so sometimes you would have to restart a checkpoint (only happened twice), and sometimes the controls or the camera will get weird (controls happened twice, camera happened once). But other than that, I didn't experience all that many bugs. Overall, I thought it was an entertaining and sometimes challenging experience. It was a welcome break from all the FPS I play, and I would have loved to play it with friends. Although, I still had a pretty good time by myself. If you like sci-fi shooters, I would recommend giving it a shot. I saw the average review score and was a bit hesitant to get it, but I'm glad I played it. Good fun.
This is another one of those mediocre games that seems to come out to just take your money and run. The graphics and action are week when you compare it with COD or any dozen other games out there where quality is taken seriously by the developers. This game may be good for someone who has never played a video game before, but that is about it.
