What starts off as a fun shoot em-up game quickly becomes too hard, too frustrating, and WAY too repetitive. You essentially do the exact same thing over and over. A group of bad guys enter the room. They hide, shoot an you, and you shoot back. Kill them all, move to next room. Repeat process. Trust me, not as fun as it sounds.
The aiming leaves much to be desired too. Many times I've had my sights set right on a bad guy, yet I'll manage to shoot everything except the bad guy. There are multiple weapons that all essentially do the same thing; shotgun, machine gun, hand gun.
Just like Kane & Lynch 1, the game is simply too hard (and I had it on easy mode). There are times when you will simply be overwhelmed by bad guys, getting shot at in all directions, and running back for cover usually doesn't help. A lot of the game is trial and error (in terms of knowing when and where bad guys are going to pop up).
I don't recommend renting or Gamefly-ing this game. If a friend has it, then borrow it and play it, but don't spend a dime on this game that will have you pulling hair out of your head after a couple hours. This is the first game I've ever rented from Gamefly just to have it sent back the next day. The game developers are headed in the right direction with the game, but they have a long ways to go before making this a respectable series.
1sts are usually better for other reasons than this.
Game plays like an arcade game with little to no strategy than just shooting your way through with a terrible camera angle that looks like an amateur is holding it and following you around like you're on Real World...only it looks more like home footage than even Real World.
The terrible camera ruins it all and earns my first "1" score of games I have rented. This is soooo horrible most indy games are better. I would have rather wasted 2 hours of my life chopping onions and crying like a little girl than attempting to play this piece of shiate.
