Very Good

An engaging TPS flawed only by decent mechanics

First and foremost, this game is definitely worthy of a rental. It has a nice engaging story-line that will hold your interest from start to finish. The achievements are relatively easy to attain too. There were no multiplayer achievements so I didn't even touch that aspect of the game.

This game simply has one of the best stories for a third person shooter ever, which honestly isn't saying much, but you will enjoy it. The core game play is nothing more than your typical TPS stuff. This is not a bad thing, but if you're looking for a game that innovates through it's gameplay, this is not it. The campaign clocked in at about 4 and half hours for me on the hardest difficulty. Beating the game on the hardest difficulty unlocks an even harder difficulty. It took me about another 4 and half hours to beat it on that difficulty. It took me about 9.5 hours overall to get all the achievements.

The good:
-Engrossing story
-Campaign doesn't drag on and manages to find that sweet spot
-Solid TPS mechanics

The Bad:
-Multiplayer: I heard it's a lag fest, and the game provides no incentive to try it out.
-No innovation in terms of gameplaye

The Ugly:
-Lack of content. Expect to get everything in this game done in 10-15 hours.

Verdict: 7.5/10 Rent this one folks, you will not be disappointed. Buying this could lead to some buyers remorse due to the lack of content.

Story blows you away. Never once did I want to send it back because I thought it was too long, or too boring, keeps you constantly interested in it and it has nice little actions that semi-effect the rest of the story. The graphics were decent for a shooter, and the gameplay style was simple and easy to maneuver. Pros- story, ease of gameplay, interactive, nice variety of weapons. Cons- too short.
