There are a few good points about this game, but they are all overwritten by the bad. The pacing of the combat is amazing. Just when you start to breeze through your enemies, and begin to think the game may be too easy they throw a hundred enemies at you at once and really test your gaming skills. The jet pack sequences make you feel like Superman, and are by far the funnest sequences in the game.
The worst offender of the game is probably the story. The characters have absolutely no depth. You don't get a feel for any of them, and it makes you simply just not care. The game has a twist halfway through (which game doesn't nowadays), but it is so obvious I don't even know if it counts as a twist. There is also a problem with the controls not always responding. Sometimes I would hold down the trigger buttons to either be shooting or aiming or both, and your character would simply stop doing those things.
If this game had come out in July or something it would have been a much better recommendation, but with it only coming out three weeks before Gears 3 it's not worth it. Unless you are a huge fan of the Warhammer 40k universe or the third person shooter genre just rent Gears instead.

I am a Warhammer 40k fan and I took that into account when writing this. This is what you should know, this is a very entertaining single player campaign that you could play through in a weekend (this is assuming that you have responsibilities and won't just play for hours on end).
I haven't gotten much time with multiplayer yet, but the customization seems really cool. The challenge system for the weapons is about as basic as it gets (5, 15, 25, 50 kills, whatever the number is). If you are getting the game now, almost everyone in multiplayer is going to be high-level are geared out so be prepared to take some whacks. I will say that when I've gotten a decent match, it was really fun.
A note on my rating. i can think of very few games that should be scored a 9, much less a 10. So an 8 is AWESOME!
