Summary: it's still a kid heavy game. Battle system is quite simple. You walk around smashing the buttons to kill bad monsters. Weapon system was a strong point in the game, finding items and creating a weapon out of them. I would avoid this game.
Summary: Like this title suggests, I bought this game used. Which I'm glad I didn't pay full price for, because it would be a rip off. If you want a cheap game multiplayer game to waste some time between good game releases, then this is a game for you. You can play co-op with up to 4 people online as well. Levels get very repetitive. Easier setting is no fun with limited fun items.
Summary: I bought this game with some kind of expectations of it being like the classic Zombies ate my neighbors. I was sadly disapointed. I did not play it in multiplayer mode which many have argued is what the game is made for, however the single player was monotonous and boring. The game seemed to be very challenging in places that were probably not intended to be. Poor controls and screen views caused much frustration.
Summary: If you play this one or two player, it's not bad.. But if you try to play four player, get ready to get annoyed really fast. The camera in the game tries to keep everybody on the screen, so if one person is going down, and one person is going up, the camera bounces up and down.. Also unless everyone is following the correct direction with you, you can't progress further. I enjoyed this game, but none of my friends did, so I'll unfortunately very rarely play this..
Summary: I bought this game thinking it would be an easy and mindless button mashing experience to share bonding with my son. I was only right about the mindless part. The game's controls are jerky and rather poorly executed. For the most part, we're never sure where we're supposed to go or what exactly we're looking for in a given quest. While the screen shots look good and the description sounds promising, skip this one and save your money.
Summary: I rented this title. It's not good. With no reviews up, i figured my 2 cents would help people not buy this. Flawed saving system, unimpressive use of unreal 3 engine, poor controls (four wheeler and billy's shooping cart...), flawed attempt at old-school gaming on 360. The odd thing is, it occurred to me while playing that this game could've been great...
Conclusion: It's definately a nice idea for a game, but hasn't been thought through all that well. It's hard to see what items you can actually pick up, and when you do it's hard to find out their overall effect. However, main problems here surround the issue of the game camera. It moves around whenever it feels like it and does not actually allow you to see enough to avoid upcoming attacks, often leaving you cornered.
