I didn't rent this, I played it on my PC, but I assume it doesn't make much difference. Anyway, I thought this game was great. It's not too long or too short and offline play doesn't require anything to be unlocked, which is a plus.

The game play is pretty great too, nothing really new, but if you like to jump into a game and start shooting things up, you won't be disappointed. I've seen a lot of critics saying it's too bland, but why change something that isn't broken?

There is a lot of weapons to pick up along your travels too, like the Famas, a Desert Eagle, grenade launchers and you can control turrets to take out choppers and stuff.

What was really good about this game though was the plot. It keeps you interested the entire way through, and even when you get to a spot you keep dying at, trust me, you WILL find at least one of these spots, you just want to keep playing.

Without giving anything away, the ending was great. It brings good closure to the story and it doesn't end with unanswered questions. I'm hoping for a sequel, but I won't hold my breath.

The bottom line: Rent this game out if you're interested in cover based shooters. I wouldn't recommend buying it though, especially if you have no intentions playing the multiplayer feature.

having said that..this is one of the best games i've played in a while. 2k made a visually beautiful game.

this game kinda plays like mass affect 2 action wise but without all of the tedious side quests and dialogue.

the soundtrack is spot on and sets the mood perfectly.

i haven't even played the multiplayer yet.

the story is sublime and worthy of a motion picture.
it had me up all night.

my only beef is that i wish it wasn't so linear and short, but i'm being picky because i tend to love open world games like fall out.

this game is definitely worth the rental

great job 2k this is an excellent game!

things have gone terribly wrong in dubi and they go from bad to worse real quick. things dont get worse in a sense of what your accustomed to in other games...this game is different and when you see things begin to unravel you cant look away. its like watching a horrific car crash in slo-mo where the driver dies in an excruciating fashion...and your the driver.
