When I don't like a game at first, I make sure I play thru it for a few hours to give it a chance to develop to see where it's going and give me time to adapt to the mechanics/controls/gameplay before judging it. However, the game didn't get much better after my first impressions. I'm not going to run down everything I didn't like about it, but I will share what kind of impressions it left on me. I was never surprised/shocked by anything. It failed to keep my interest for more than an hour at a time. I never felt any kind of suspense or thrill with what was to come next, no urge to keep playing. I never had a "DAY-UMMM!" moment. I knew exactly what was going to happen before it happened and I cringed at times with the cheesy one liners. I only played thru the first chapter, so maybe it gets better, but after 5 unimpressive hours, I'm most likely moving on. I'd probably would have kept it and played the whole thing if there wasn't several other newer games I'd rather get.
I recommend this title for a weekend rental and no more. The graphics and creativity were pretty awesome.
The multiplayer is horrendous and barely worth mentioning. I found that during several boss fights I didn't even have to shoot the creature coming after me. After several minutes of evading, the bosses die on their own. Truly sad. You can't see hit points or damage.
A fancy looking title where the actual gameplay mechanics seemed like an afterthought.
