Weak

Wasn't fun.

Cons-
1:Aliens are not as fun to kill as humans because they are agile and annoying. (Also very unoriginal)

2:Moving it underground killed it. Your path is lain out for you so you can mindlessly shoot bugs on your way to an unoriginal objective. There isnt the choice to blow things up, get the authorities on you, drive around in a car, etc. It's just boring. (Also, falling into bottomless pits isnt very fun.

Pros:
1:Destructible environments. (Not new)

2:Repair ability

I guess I thought it would be more like Red Faction:Guerrilla, but new features. I enjoyed the first mission (where you fought humans above ground) the most. Do not buy this game, but if you want to see the new features, renting isnt too bad.

I don't typically do these types of reviews but this game was such a disappointment. I really enjoyed Red Faction: Guerilla for it's open world semi-nonliner story and freedom to destroy whatever you can get a sledgehammer on.

For some reason, the game designers decided to forgo everything that worked in the original game and replace it with a sub-par third person shooter with a linear story line and no open world.

I played this for about an hour before checking online to see if somehow it was going to get better. It doesn't. Only brightside to this game sucking so bad is I can send it back in time to get Duke Nukem!

Starts off decent with a couple neat concepts, but once you realize that you've seen every enemy by the third level, the game gets obnoxiously repetetive and you just want it to end.
