Summary: I was able to purchase The Club out of the bargain bin on Black Friday and found this game to be pleasantly suprising. First off the game is short, with only 8 levels and each taking a half hour to 40 minutes to finish.
Summary: This game gets old quick, pretty much running over and over 3 different types of missions: Beat the clock, hold your ground, and fight to the exit. For the first couple of hours you will be amused and having fun.
"The Club on the Xbox 360 is an old style shooter that is not worth the price of admission."

Summary: The Club on the Xbox 360 is an old style shooter that is not worth the price of admission. The main campaign can be completed in about 5 hours and the multiplayer rooms are empty. Where The Club does shine is in its simple game play. It fells, plays, looks, and sounds like an old shooter.
Summary: Sega's The Club feels like an old-school, arcade shooter with a next-gen gloss, and it certainly is by any stretch of the imagination. You run and race through a closed course, taking down as many enemies as you can in the process in some trigger happy, flashy ways.
Conclusion: I don't understand why TXB is falling all over itself to give Bizarre Creations hope that they should venture out from the racing genre. It is reviews like this that forces me to question TXB's objectivity.
Summary: I have just read a review of The Club written by somebody who is clearly disgusted that it is not Gears of War and I am inclined to agree. After all, The Club merely requires you to run and shoot in order to drive forward a very threadbare narrative, whereas Gears of War... Hang on.
Excerpt: If this game came out in the Megadrive era (with watered down graphics obviously!), it would be considered a superb game! Cutting a long story short (I won't go into detail about the game's engine and how it's played), the game focuses on points.
Pros: easy to pick up and play, scoring system, difficulty keeps you playing,
Cons: not to everyone's tastes, can become repetitive
Excerpt: The club is a group of people who have more money than sense. They put their lives on the line to complete in tournaments and stay alive. The game itslef is a first person shooter with eight locations including the manor house, an ex assylum.
