Good

Honest Review.

First this game is not designed for the hardcore gamers, that much was obvious.

I was kinda disappointed to see the bad reviews, but I figured I would give it a try.

The Graphics are decent, in some spots they are above average, but it is no where near as bad as others have said.

Is the Game broke? No it is not, yes there are problems, like load screens at bad times, but it is very playable.

The storyline is interesting, while it could have been better with your toon having dialog it is easy to follow. The game as a whole is not worth the asking 59.99 it should have been priced about $30.00. The game definitely needed more time to polish. It was fairly obvious when I got near halfway that a lot of reviews were from people who were just following the crowd and never played it through.

This game is worth a rental, as it will give a day or 2 of fun times.

All I can say is do not base everything you read on you decision to rent or not, if I did I would not have had the opportunity to play this game and gather some easy and quick points.

This was one of the worst pieces of hot garbage games I've ever played on the 360. I have nothing good to say about this game, but thought that I should warn any other person who is considering renting this game to stay away. Pretend this game has AIDS and you will definitely get it if you play it.

This was some of the choppiest, blurriest, glitchiest few hours of video gaming I've sat through. The controls are terrible. It's almost impossible to shoot enemies because of how choppy and sloppy the aiming system and guns are. Even normal mode was a nightmare in later levels. Don't even try playing MP for the achievements, like I tried, because there aren't any servers. I could only imagine the frustration and migraine inducing piece of junk that would be the multiplayer deathmatches.

Whatever you do, do not rent this game. I would rather lick a burger king men's room public bathroom toilet seat than to play another minute of this game.

I was originally turned away from this game because of all the negative publicity surrounding it. Against my better judgment, I rented the game anyway.
After playing it, I discovered that all of the people who rated this game negatively were, in fact, correct to some extent. Yes, the checkpoints are very far apart(which is extremely angering). Yes, the game is short(8 levels, 6-8 hours approximately). And yes, the gameplay isn't exactly amazing. Still, despite these set backs, this game is worth playing. The story is very good. (Most of) the missions are entertaining and exciting. The graphics, while not exactly top-notch, are still pretty good (and not at all something that should be used against this game in people's reviews). My favorite levels were the ones New York and Washington. The levels in London were frustrating and fairly boring. All of the invade-a-German-secret lab-by-yourself stuff reminded me a lot of MOH Frontline. Being able to use an enemy as a shield is an exciting feature in the game, although it isn't always particularly useful.
All things considered, this game isn't awesome, but it does not reek either. If you are debating whether or not to rent this one, I'd say go for it. Expect some disappointment, but a lot of fun.
