Bargain Basement First Person Shooter

When the first FPS shooter came out several years (or is it decades?) ago, the bar wasn’t set very high; the technology was very limited, so games like Doom and Wolfenstein became smash hits.
Unfortunately, the bar has risen significantly since those early days.
In Marines: Modern Urban Combat, you are given the basics of a First Person Shooter; you get a small assortment of firearms (a rifle, grenades, and a grenade launcher) You are asked to go through each level and kill off all the enemies (consisting of one type of soldier and some armored vehicles) in that level. Along the way, you can pick up a machine gun or use a gun emplacement.
A second player can join in - like in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Reflex - but that person is stuck in rail shooter mode.
Still, this game might have worked when the Wii first came out, but not now - not after Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Reflex or The Conduit. There are too few weapons and too few types of enemies for me to get any real joy out of this game.
And every level plays out the same; go to an area, kill all bad guys, go to the next area, kill all bad guys and so on. The story (a four hour journey for most players) just doesn’t grab my attention. It doesn’t have any online features like The Conduit or Modern Warfare: Reflex.
Even with a price tag of $20, Marines: Modern Urban Combat is a dull gaming experience with repetitive action and limited weapons and enemies. SKIP IT.
