Changing the environment is fun and different
It seems like a normal third person shooter but you have the ability to change the terrain while playing which can be used to solve puzzles and get rid of enemies.
A good game should have good reviews
First off I dont understand why this game has bad reviews, It's a GOOD GAME..I was spectical of it in beginning as well but now that I have it and played it it is a fun and a good game.It is a lot like gears of war minus chainsaw gun, dead space and mass effect combined into one game that is how it is too me,and I would bet that a lot of other gamers would say the same thing about it.The game has only 3missions but they are each pretty long missions they arent short. You can carry 2weapons at a time switch between the 2 and there are quite a few weapons in the game as well, and there is a lot of different things to do in game as well as drive a buggy with a michine gun turret on it. This game has a lot of things to do and a lot of enimies to take on. In all this is a great game with good graphics and pretty easy achievements if u like hearing the bling noise after achievements I know I do. Take care Bless ONE..
I bought this game because I thought it might be fun to alter the land. And to be honest, it kind of was. I thought I could handle the challenges everyone talked about. But, trust me, it is harder then you will have ever expected. Sure, you can make cover, but when an enemy turret is breaking it down that won't be reassuring to you. It won’t be reassuring either when you see newly-gained allies being shot down in a cutscene less than a minute after you receive them. I know it’s supposed to be a war, but wars aren’t usually fought 1 vs. 100 style. I died twice during the TUTORIAL. The freaking TUTORIAL! Save your money and spend it on Lost Planet or something else if you want a decent shooter. I might recommend it, but only to the most hardcore of gamers. It is in the gameplay and challenge department where these people fail. They even repeat the bosses! Lazy! Ground warping isn't nearly as fun once you realize that the cover you just created can be destroyed by a quarter of a round of machinegun fire. So save your time. Don't buy this game.
better than most
Everyone is giving this game a bad rap, but I think it is a very good game with some good ideas. I love the terrain deformation and all the awesome weapons. The music is kind of repetitive but thats okay. I love 3rd person shooters but I would never recommend this game over Gears of War 2 or Mass Effect. It's not the best 3rd person shooters ever but it has strengths and its weaknesses. It sticks out because of the modern day problems (global warming, stem cell research, etc) and that makes it cool in my opinion. I think that this game is different because you aren't fighting aliens and such(however the baddies do look like aliens but whatever). I had high hopes for this game and I wasn't that disappointed like most others. However if you had money for only one game and you really wanted a 3rd person shooters then definitely go for Gears of War 2. I like this game but not a lot of others do, so you should try the demo on xbox live or ps3 to see if it is right for you. It's an all around good game so you should definitely look into it!
I really enjoy this game. So what, the campaign is unbalanced, with parts being WAY too easy and WAY too hard, but who cares? It's an enjoyable game, and the ground-altering idea was hard to perfect, because something like that had never been tried before! Anyways the epic multiplayer is where it's at. I really enjoy this game and at 9.99 I think it is worth your money. I also think the graphics are better then people say, because if you only play games that have graphics as good as MW2, you would have about five games to play. It is really fun bending the terrain to block enemy bullets! I don't know what else to say, but the main point is that this is an underrated game. All in all, I give this game 9.0, because it is really fun. Peace out!
either best or worst
This is just one of those games that you're either gonna love, or you're gonna want to break it and yell at the developers. I personally did not like it very much, but i tried looking at it from different perspectives. It's a good idea, and it has a pretty decent story. It feels very similar to star wars. If you like star wars, you probably will like this game, but if you're not much of a futuristic sci-fi gamer, you probably won't like this game. The controls are a bit tricky at first and some of the latter levels get pretty challenging. The weapons are pretty creative, and the terrain alternation abilities are awesome at first, but latter they become a bit annoying. Like i said, this is a game that you're either gonna love or hate, not many people are gonna be in between. It's a game that depends a lot on your taste in gaming. I feel everyone should give this game a try-especially since it's very cheap-whether or not it's your type of game, you might be one of those that loves it. If you don't like it then it's not that bad because it's pretty cheap
Good new ideas, but not great...
The game overall was actually pretty fun. I beat it in about 4 days, but thats just me. It was actually pretty challenging at times and became pretty frustrating. You get to a point where your trying to figure out what to do, but there arnt really any clues to tell you where to go or where to "dig" so youll be spending alot of time messing up the enviorment. The ability to change the evnviorment is actually the best part and the dullest part about the game. Its a cool concept, but gets old because there isnt much variation from making the ground go up or down. The enemies at times are challenging where theyll be in the ground and the only way to kill them is by shooting an underground grenade/torpedo thing. The weapons are cool and fun to use, but you tend to run out of ammo all to easily. The sound effects were cool, but for a huge war that is taking place thier isnt much noise around. The story isnt anything really new, but wasnt bad either. This game is cool in its own way, but not worth buying new. This is one of those games you play, you beat, you trade it back in.
human kind is at stake
i just got this game for christmas eve and its a solid game. however the story is a little far to my likings. its like alien invasion turned human. the weapons are quite destructive and you can dig underground which is pretty cool. in my opinion only casual shooters will enjoy this game its not that exciting enough.
BEST FREAKIN GAME IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!
When I got this game I was blown away. The game is really hard but really fun! Multiplayer is awesome . There is 3 missions but really long.I really really recomend this game.
A good game for the most part
I would agree that this game is actually pretty good. True there could have been some things done better, such as sound and some of the graphic areas. Also the storyline may have been somewhat predictable, however it was good nonetheless! This game was really full of great ideas, even if they weren't carried out to the fullest potential, And of course there was room for improvement, but what game can't be improved? All-in-All I do think this was a good game, especially for me, someone who doesn't normally like Shooters. I would recommend this game to anyone who likes shooter games with a pretty neat Story line. If there was one major, major flaw in the whole game I picked up on, it was the sound that killed it for me. I urge everyone who likes shooting games to try this game and try to not focus on the sound, even though it can be at times a crucial part of gaming.
