Overview
================
The words that come to mind are blah, boring, and generic. This is a bargain bin shooter. It is a rent at best. The few tricks like breaching to give it a fresh feel just don't help it overcome being a boring and generic shooter.

Pros
================
1) The co-op is okay....at least better than the campaign.
2) You could play co-op without an online pass.

Cons
================
1) boring story
2) bad graphics
3) just okay controls (pretty much modern warfare, but less responsive)
4) just plain generic and boring

So far this game is nice. In my opinion, better than MW, BF, Fear3, Rage, and a host of other popular games. It is a FPS with a fairly decent storyline. The game gives you a little more than most with a speacial HUD you can access for limited time that gives you the ability to see enemys behind cover and also slows down the action a bit. Very useful because it gets quite hectic. Also there are special power up moves that can be very helpful, such as one is to make a chosen enemy commit suicide by gernade wich in turn kills other enemys nearby. Theses special moves can be used once the a meter must be refilled by killing enemys quickly or by headshot. the is also another powerup system wich is like Dead Island or Deadspace, where you permantly keep the powerups like more health or less fireing recoil.

Overall a fun game with alot of elements, I am only on the 4th level so not sure if it will remain fresh throughout the game but after the first boss, who moves like Neo in the matrix, Im fairly confident this will be a killer game through and through.

Haven't played the game in CO-OP and I am sure that what they are wanting people to buy this game for, but for campaign mode, sorry, its like a high budget movie that goes no where. Makes you wonder how some of these games even get funded.
