I have to admit, I read the reviews on this one and still thought "hey, its a shooter... its Richard Marcinco, he's a happenin guy... just give it a shot!"
I could not, in a MILLION years, have been more wrong. I have suffered through some bad games before, playing them through like a trooper just to say I did it. I got halfway through the second level (about 10 minutes) on this and couldn't take it any more. I sent it back praying for the gamefly gods to redeem my bad fortune.
PROS: umm... yeah... its a shooter... and... I got nothin.
CONS: Its a horrible shooter, aiming is very difficult, too sensitive to get a target. the default controls are weird, they don't make sense (admittedly I did not take the time to try and fix them). Every time you kill someone the charachter spits out a stupid saying. I am not opposed to profanity, this was just dumb! "TAKE THAT YOU MOTHERF>>>>S!" or "CHEW ON THIS MOTHERF>>>>S!" Over and Over and Over and Over and Over and Over.... get the picture? I had to turn the TV down so as not to offend my cats! (don't worry, they will recover with therapy) There was nothing fun about it, and I love to run around and shoot things just for the fun of it! I critiqued the game as I played it instead of after and in my book, that's a true sign of a bad game.
For the record I did try to get on the multiplayer, there was nobody playing so it sat there for 10 minutes waiting for 7 people, I got to 3 and decided to quit.
Rebellion and Bethesda... you guys didn't just miss the mark on this one... you launched a hail mary... to the fat guy in the stands... who was rooting for the other team.

Just like Macincko, this game is overrated. If you are accustomed to playing Call of Duty or Tom Clancy style games, stay away from this one. The graphics are pretty good, but the story plot stinks. Recommend jabbing a pencil in your eye instead!

I cannot believe that I used my first rental on Game fly for this!? I have read all of Dicks books and was sure this would be an awesome title. It sucked. Cursing and shooting. That's it. There is little or no substance to this game. On top of that, I finished it in about 4 hours flat. Given the quality this guy and his stories could have generated, I was really disappointed. Had I purchased this game for $59.99, I would have been really upset. Save your money, and only rent it if you have played everything else.
