Overall, this game has a very satisfying battle mechanic. What more can one ask for really? About halfway through the game, you have already met a majority of the enemies you will face, but the game does a fantastic job of still keeping future firefights interesting and dynamic. The CGI animations are actually pretty nice if you're into that sort of thing. The story was somewhat lacking, but I did not go into this game expecting a masterpiece anyways.
I think my only gripe could be that the way you upgrade your guns seems to be not using them oddly enough. So if you want to max out your favorite weapon, it will have to sit in your inventory not getting used, as you have to pick up the gun while you have full ammo for it to upgrade. Even still, it doesn't ruin the game.
If I could describe the game, I would say it is a much faster paced Gears of War, and that is not a bad thing at all!
