Summary: It's a scripted first person shooter. Some don't care for that and it's old school, true to id's roots. That said, the graphics are top notch, the acting is quite good, and there's quite a bit more to do than just walk around shooting things although, ultimately, that's what you'll do mostly and it's a lot of fun. They do an additional clever trick of reusing levels by having you fight your way through them from different directions. Surprisingly effective.
Summary: This is a game I have waited years for. It is a FPS, with some RPG elements added in, and also includes vehicle combat. There are tons of different enemy types, many of which will fight each other as well. The graphics are amazing, and it still runs at a solid 60 frames per second. You can have fun exploring the world, making new items while continuing to go through the story and complete missions.
Very good first person shooter, but very linear compared to Fallout series.

Summary: ID did a good job on this game as well as Bethesda, thats right, all the controversy over Bethesda and ID ended up working together and made a good first person shooter and very linear game. If your looking for something like the Fallout series, this probably the closest alternative for the price(nothing is truly like Bethesda's Fallout or Elder Scrolls series). Realistic swaying side to side walking and realistic shooting makes this game.
Summary: I am a sucker for vintage releases on new systems. You get all 3 Streets of Rage. Good value, however, Streets of Rage copies extensively from Final Fight (Final Fight was released in 1989 and Streets of Rage in 1991) and Final Fight does it better in my opinion. If you are on the hill about purchasing this, go ahead and do it if you are a fan of side-scrolling fighting games, otherwise, wait until Xbox Live has it on sale.
