Good

Meh

Game was pretty interesting. Good graphics etc. although it is very repetitive. Theres only about 25 different ways to kill a person and after about 5000+ kills you've pretty much seen them all. Good rental game, do not buy!

Very Good

Good start for next gen

This game is a great start for the next gen Xbox games. This game has the best looking graphics so far from any next gen game including PS4 titles. The sound is good and the VO is pretty darn good. The story does drag a little but really picks up at the end. The fighting is a little repetitive but it did not bother me that much at all.
But be warned this is about a 6 hour game.

Fair

Very short game

If it took 7 years to make like the credits state - they need to review their game making and business practices! It was very well done graphically - but you'd expect that from an X1 title (or a PS4 title). But it was terribly, terribly short. Maybe they spent all their time on multiplayer - I am not a huge multiplayer person because of my location and bad Internet, so I gave them benefit of the doubt that it was much better - and that is how they got a 5. Voice acting was good, so no trouble there. Action was okay, but exceptionally repetitive, even for a button masher fighting game. Plot? They didn't bother to explain it at any point really. No spoilers - I just thought it left a hundred more questions than it answered. But at least it wasn't as bad an ending as Mass Effect 3. I won't be doing a second playthrough or recommending it unless someone has a few hours to kill.
