Wasn't really sure what I'd think about this game, saw the art and figured it'd be one of those "Meh, I'll get to it when I do" titles. While I may have started that way, I definitely grew with it and ended up leaving it more pleased than I found it.
[[ WEAPONS ]] The xeno-weapons are crazy and varied enough, providing great and punishing combos when paired with other members' xeno-weapons.
The [[ CHARACTERS ]] are okay, although you have to read through a lot of "Intel" packets (collected throughout the game) to really learn anything about them. Honestly though, I didn't really feel anything for any of them because the game didn't really show me why I should care about them other than they're some "bad guys who apparently turned against the bad corporation, so they're good now" type of thing.
[[ STORY ]] isn't too bad, although it's not particularly original or riveting. Kinda curious how the corporation has such a ridiculous number of bad guys to throw into the grinder of my rather horrifying weapons.
Honestly, I don't think this game really did all that much wrong. I mean, it's far from life-affirming -- just about everything in this game is either cliche' or has been done already. That said, it still manages to put the pieces together in a pretty decent way. If you've got a couple days to kill and want to shake things up between playing CoD and DragonAge, this could be a decent break for you to change things up with a fringe-tech shooter.
this was a good game the graphics could be better so could the gun selection the story is good they could have put more time into the details with all the back storys for all the charecters but thats to be expected if you want a fun game to pass the time and you arnt to picky about all the little things then rent the game its allot of fun to play both by yourself and with another player you can even switch between the characters every one has there own special weapon theres allot of upgrades you cant get all the characters which i think is one of the best things about games it gives you a goal to aim for along with all the outfits i would love to hear what all of you think
