The game itself is good. It was difficult but not too difficult. The on line game at first was ok, but I soon found myself addicted to it. The addiction was not just the game, it was the players I met on line. They were funny, sly and ruthless, all the character traits I look for in on line gamers.
this game started off good (at best). All automatic weapons and constant firing got monotinous. The VS suits were lame, on foot was much more fun. All in all, it sucked, it's anime apeal is cool if you like anime- no thanks.
This game reminds me about those games that come straight from China, those games with way too smooth graphics. Even during the story parts, the graphics suck. Definitely not next gen, more like a ps2 game.
The game play isn't great either, you can go on foot or drive various robots. Your camera is far a way, even when you change the settings to up close. The aiming is like the arrow on your internet browser, really stiff and slow, but you can change the speed.
You have to collect this heat source from these Akrids, and as long as you have this heat, your suit will keep you alive, even if you get hit by a rocket or grenade, the only way to die is to run out of heat, or just take hit after hit very quickly.
The game is pretty long, each level takes like 20 to maybe 50 minutes, and there are 10 or 11 levels.
When I read "snow pirates," I expected Jack Sparrow in a futuristic snow setting, but I ended up with a Chinese looking game, the people look like the people from the old Dynasty Warriors games, like 4 and 5, not like the new one.
I expected a lot more from this game, I would not recommend renting it.
