This game was just the right difficulty and is way fun. The assortment of weapons is awesome... especially the sniper rifle, where you can slow down time. Great 2 player cooperative and if you have a wide screen TV it splits the screen side by side for maximum viewing angles (instead of top to bottom). The story is also very good, but the end was a little anti-climactic. Still a great game though... I'll probably buy it.
This is a very good launch title. On to the ratings:
Graphics (7): I must say that this is if all things are equal, and if you have a TV doing 1080p the graphics are probably a 9. The clarity of a 1080p game is amazing. Anyway, the overall graphical power is much higher than last gen games, but not quite what the ps3 is capable of. However, I'm one who would sacrifice some graphics for a smooth frame rate and this game is incredibly smooth.
Sound (9): Explosions everywhere. If you have surround sound you will not be disappointed. You can hear your enemies talking in their weird language as well. The music is fitting for the environments and scenes you play through. Professional, without any real flaw.
Controls (9): The controls where great, no real complaints.
Fun (8.5): It's an incredibly fun game and much more polished than any other game for the ps3 to date. I recommend it for anyone that just wants to play a fun game. It's not the "end all" of fps, but if you're not a nerd who cant enjoy a game if it's not groundbreaking, then you will find that this game is terrific. Not Halo, but still a very good BUY or RENT. Oh, and wait till the sequel before comparing graphics to other systems you silly people.
