Summary: I hate Xbox so much right now. My son wanted this game for Xmas. I bought him a 360 (which was defective and an entirely separate nightmare) and this game. I had NO idea.that first of all the updates alone require more space than comes with the bundled Xbox. So I will need to buy a hard drive.
you should be able to play the stupid game without paying an ongoing membership

Summary: I would put zero stars here if I could. I do not have a temper but it absolutely infuriates me that these companies are gouging us in this way. You buy a game, you buy this incredibly expensive game system, you should be able to play the stupid game without paying an ongoing membership...
What a waste of money for a game we cannot play unless ...

Summary: This is the most disappointing game ever. NOWHERE do they list that a Gold account is required until you've actually purchased the game. You ruined my seven-year-old's Christmas. Even though he got to play a little bit he lost connection to the server every time.
Have to buy Gold account ($5/month) and play online only!!

Summary: Sorry, can't play it offline... REALLY? OK it's been a while since I have bought an Xbox game... So you can't play this one unless you have a GOLD account which is $5/month... FCOL! There is no way to play it offline on your Xbox console.... At least as far as I can tell. Nope...
Summary: My son was SO EXCITED to get this game, so it's with great regret that I have now shut off my xbox and darned near threw it out the window trying to actually play the game we paid for. OMG, what an incredibly frustrating evening.
Summary: BE WARNED!!! I should have read some of the others reviews before I bought this item. If you do not subscribe to Xbox Live Gold this disc is absolutely worthless. You cannot play it on a local system.
Summary: There is no ability to play split screen on the 360. So you can play online but cant play with two people on the same xbox. This is just a bad shooter that happens to be with plants and has no relation to the past two games. Sending it back because I dont even want to play just by myself.
