The Box should have killed Deckard in the first scene. The game should have ended and you could have dreamed of all the potential that mixing guns and monsters could have had. If you are a fan of Halo, Turok or Call of Duty you may as well save yourself the trouble of sending this one back. Think of how fun goldeneye was... now think of how much fun it is to actually play goldeneye after the past 10 years of advances in video games. If you have a deep love of mythology or really just need to see Vivian in some cutscenes don't let me stop you. Otherwise this game is not worth the carbon footprint of receiving it and mailing it back.

This game is definitely one to play if you enjoy a challenge and discovering the different ways to kill your enemies. I will admit is is quite frustrating at times through many of the boss fights, but if your a true gamer you will have paitients to die those first few times, and learn each time how to better kill your enemies. It has your basic Unreal Light reflection graphics, so pretty good on that part, and has some equally good music for the genre of game that it is. Its definitely not a class act game but its definitely one of those games that takes trial and error to beat, if u like easy run an gun and never die games where there's no challenge then this isn't the game you want to rent. But it has a semi-good plot line and attempts to make good pick ups and find-em's through out the game, could have a more extensive choice of weapons but does well with what it gives you. Over all its the first few levels i think gamers will find frustrating, but the game has some decent graphics and some interesting levels and places you go, so over all i give it a 6.5.
I'll make this brief. The controls are unresponsive, the graphics aren't very good at all, the story makes almost no sense, the weapons are weak against most enemies, and your character can only jump about 4 inches, but they included jumping puzzles anyway.
The multiplayer has some good ideas, but the game is so easy to lose interest in that you'll rarely find anyone to play with.
I've been playing video games for almost 20 years now, and I've played some of the all time best, and some of the worst ever, and I rarely turn a game away.
This game actually GOT turned away. After several hours stumbling around running into everything by way of the horrible controls, and getting killed by enemies left and right because I was using the helpless pistol, I switched to multiplayer. I found ONE person with which to play. A few rounds later, after more stumbling around and getting murdered by the werewolves in multiplayer, I gave that up too.
This game simply isn't fun, and even if you give it a chance, it's pretty hard to get anything done because you're constantly running into invisible walls (or 'dense air' as one of my co-workers calls it) or being mauled by some ridiculous Pokemon-esque monster and being sent back to where you were 10 minutes before.
The only good thing about this game is the music from the title screen. It's generic modern rock (a la Breaking Benjamin) and isn't fantastic, but it's not bad either.
Do yourself a favor and don't play this game, unless you just want to play every game you can get your hands on. That's how I ended up with it, anyway.
