This game is awesome. The single player campaign is interesting, but can become challenging on later levels due to the difficulty. When they say extreme, it is very extreme. The game is very realistic in a sense of physics. Not to mention the awesome VS's (vital suits) think mechs with insane weaponry. However, on XBox Live is where this game really shines. With many characters to choose from, (not to mention those unlockables) with many different patterns, you can pick which player to wreak havoc with. And now with 2 of the 3 downloadable maps free, even more stages to play in. Without a doubt worth a rent.

Let me start off by saying this game rocks with regards to both the campaign and online playability. The controls took a little getting used to at first, but now I can only put it up there with the Gears of War active reload control sceme: awesome.
Onto the online stuff! Teamwork has never been more fun than with this game. You're team can do anything if they know how to work together. You get a couple of people in VS's, one working fire draw, and a couple working everything else, and it's an easy game, especially with the open communications line for the team.
The graphics leave little to be desired, but the weapons take the cake! From rocket launchers, machine guns, laser cannons, shotguns, and homing lasers, this game has it all. I especially like the rifle and machine gun. I've found the shotgun to be slightly in affective unless you're using the VS mounted version.

awesome game.there is a LOT of enemies to kill in every level.and theres a great storyline.the graphics and gameplay is very realistic.The only downside to the game is that its short.You could probably beat it in 3 hours or so.But dont expect the game to be easy,its still a big challenge.the bosses are huge.the boss fights very challenging alone.theres a lot of enemies to kill so you wont be bored.
