Very Good

Much better compared to the older ones

I'm only a couple of hours into it, and the gameplay has proven to be pretty addicting. I like how they are almost making fun of themselves with cheesy acting, because the older HOD games were rediculous with the acting. "We're meeting G over there." You know what I'm talking about. They also seem to be doing some sort of Quintin Terintino spoof, which makes the game a little amusing, and the music is great. I could swear they took some of the music from his movies, but I'm not sure. The points system gives you a good reason to keep playing. By slowing down time and getting headshots and better accuracy, you get more points to buy weapon upgrades and new weapons. You also use your score as ammunition for the special weapons, giving you some incentive to only use them when you really need them, since you will be throwing away your points. Very original and creative idea I think. I'll have to say that I'm very exited about this game because there havn't been any good games out for the wii in a long time. If a wii is the only system you have, I would highly recomend puting this at the top of your game Q. If you have other systems, this one is good to play to take a break between games (like left 4 dead). Note: The gameplay is not nearly as frustrating as its older brothers.
