Good

This is a great game to rent, thats all. I feel bad for anyone who spent 60 dollars on this game when it came out. You can beat the single player story mode in about 2 hours. The object is to go back and repeat the levels you have beaten to improve your score, but the game doesnt pull you in enough for you to do that. I wanted to test out the online play but noone plays. Ive tried for 3 days to get an online game going and not one person plays. Achievement hunters should stay away also, around 600 of the games 1000 points are online achievements and since noone plays it online you cant get those achievements, So basically, you get a few hours of entertainment and thats it. Rental only.

Upon receiving the club I promptly loaded it into my 360, as I couldn't wait to finally check out the game that I'd been curious about since release.

I must say, that the experience was not quite what I'd hoped for.

With the introductions and cinematic screens that greet you upon entering the club... it gives the player the feeling that he/ she is about to partake in a game that is 2 parts Syphon Filter, 2 parts Mortal Kombat and 1 part game show. It ends up feeling more like 5 parts well intended, clumsily repetitive shooter.

This is one of those games that has the potential of being really great or a total let down. I truly feel that the former would have applied if the developers could have taken more time to balance the mechanics of the game and maybe throw some additional character skins on the enemies.

I didn't hate this game, not in the least. It's just that in the day of great shooters such as Halo, games like this should try a little harder. Just because you're trying to make a game that feels like an arcade title doesn't mean you should skimp on the detail. About the closest thing I can compare this title to are the Star Wars: Battlefront titles for the xbox. Sadly, even being on a last gen console doesn't stop them from out performing the Club.

WoW this game can amaze you with its graphics, shooting, and just pure death lol... BUT

It has no LEGIT storyline, it's not near an RPG, it's basically setup to be one of those "Only good online" type of games.
Now mind you there is nothing wrong with having those types of games in your collection but once your subscription runs out, or something more versatile is released, this game becomes less and less of a factor on your priority list.
