I like shooters, who doesn't? This game has great weapons, running, shooting, ducking, everything you'd expect from a modern third person shooter. You're even scored based on your performance.

It's like a race-car game, in which you practice on the same track, over and over again. Cutting off a few seconds, perfecting moves and failing again and again.

I liked some of the levels, the FIRST time through. Like a race track, these are very linear and always the same. There are different game types, but really they are the same game with speed or score requirements.

Multiplayer was better than I thought it would be, but still feels like a late edition to the game. I doubt anyone will be playing on-line in a month or two (Like Timeshift, Kane & Lynch)

Good Weekend game, but little else.

The Club takes a lot of flak in the reviews. Sadly most of it is deserved.

Graphically, the game is actually quite impressive. Destructible environments are very prominent, and the character models (On the selectable characters) are fantastic. The sounds are rather bland. Some generic rock music plays in the background, but the guns sound like you'd expect, nothing fancy here.

The gameplay in and of itself is pretty solid. Some kind of targeting system would have been nice, perhaps purchasing upgrades as you had pushed through the tournaments, but unfortunately not. There is an auto-aim feature, but it makes the game worse and makes headshots near impossible.

The game offers your standard fare of modes. Single Player "story" mode, and a level select mode. And multiplayer. But don't even bother with that, As with most older Live games, it's a ghost town, which also makes gaining 1000/1000 nigh impossible unless you find a dedicated group of players, should that kind of thing bother you. Anyway, the story mode is a series of 8 tournaments, with little more than an introduction to the stage at the beginning of each tournament. You then proceed to run the same stage 6 times in either "Get to the finish with points" "Get to the finish with points in a time limit" or "Survive in one spot until time runs out". Rather uninspired, and each tournament is the same stuff, so don't expect anything special. Each of the player characters are so identical in how they play that it makes no real difference who you choose either.

To sum up, rent The Club if you feel like some solid gunwank play, but don't expect to be entertained long.

This game is: run from point A to point B quickly, shoot people in your way, time your killings to keep your combo up. Did I miss anything? This could have been a much better idea with a bit more imagination and money (I'm sure) but this game is boring and repetitive. There is nothing immersing or engaging to keep up interest and excitement.
