Summary: This is a freaking awesome and totally underrated game. As of my writing it is listed for $8!, the game is worth far more. If you don't have it, get it. Its a fun action ride that will keep you busy through the weekend. The hero in the game uses a weapon called a glaive that is pretty much a deadly boomerang that does different things as you become stronger. There is gunplay and hand to hand combat as well. Highly recommended.
Summary: The game was really spectacular I have only gotten to Chapter six and I cant put my controller down. Though i am not playing it on the xbox 360. Because it broke down. Go figure that. the graphics and game play to be sure of probably aren't that much different anyways. The storyline is almost like that of the Resident Evil 4. An unknown virus has infected people blah blah blah now you have to eradicate the perpetrators who made the virus.
Pros: ...you can get Dark Sector. Why this is $8, I don't really know. It's a great game, even if it borrows from other hit games. It takes plasmid-like powers from Bioshock and puts them on your glaive. It takes the slow approaching zombie factor (that start running when they get close to you) and the accompanying close combat routines from Resident Evil (4&5), as well as the merchant (Black Market vs Stranger in RE4). Controls and forgettable story are borrowed from Gears...
Cons: Story sucks, multiplayer is meh. But neither of those are worth taking off for.
Summary: This game is the definition of underrated. It's amazing how some bad reviews can make or break a game and in this game's case, its the latter. This game has been full of bad press, most notably because it "copies" Gears of War's cover/combat system. Make no mistake, this game is very, very similar to Gears... However, it changes so much to make its own unique experience that in my opinion, is even more fun the Gears.
Pros: It was highly intensive, tons of fun, and actually took me a good amount of time to beat it. Most games down down for the count in a matter of hours, or at the most 2 nights worth of sweat and concentration. This game took me around 3 days. Granted I didn't spend as much time on it as normal, but either way it was still a most entertaining campaign. I enjoyed the detail of the slaughtering personally, the gore is my favorite part. Above all, one of my top favorite games.
Cons: Just a little one I experienced at the beginning of the game, the sensitivity setting was insane the way it was thrown around on the screen. Just lowering the sensitivity way down solved that well.
Pros: This game has great graphics and amazing gameplay. There are numerous spots where you will be amazed at the level of detail. The gameplay is also constantly changing, giving you new powers and abilities.
Cons: The demo for this game as well as poor advertising killed this games success. Do yourself a favor and buy it...you will not regret it.
