TEXAS CHANSAW MASSACRE AIN'T GOT SHIT ON THIS

I remember I was at a friends house just watching TV and heard the cover of Tears For Fears, Mad World. Then I saw the commerical and suddenly thought to myself...I MUST HAVE THAT GAME. Well thankfully I got it and wow was I right!

The game is absolutely amazing. The gameplay and controls are easy to get used to. The graphics are insane as you find in most games that kick ass as this one does. Action out the bung hole and fresh in your face as your chainsaw rips through another enemy sending blood everywhere. It would bring a tear to leather faces eye to see that gamers are finally understanding that there is nothing wrong with taking a chainsaw to someones torso.

The missions are well laid out and maybe alittle linear for my tastes, but I can hardly notice it as bullets fly over my head. That and the A.I. is pretty smart as well so replay value is high when they don't always take cover behind the same wall or rock. The gore in the game is great as well since you can blow a locusts body in half with a shotgun that I call my boomstick. Now if the shotgun had a saw on it then the guy from evil dead would definatly consider buying himself one.

Character design is flawless as well as the voice acting for each character. Because when I kick ass I tend to scream "Oh yeah! I'm in the zone baby!" Vains popping out with sweat dripping and blood spurting everywhere, the only woman you see is pretty cute, but Marcus won't be tapping that anytime soon in the game and god forbid in Gears of War 2 a woman who is on roids herself on the battlefield.

Online is pretty sick as well. Four on four or co op through the game on insane because you know you can't do it by yourself. The four and four gets really intense with shotguns, chainsaws, snipers, but the only problem with the online mode is trying to get away from a man with a shotgun with out throwing yourself up onto a wall to be torn apart, but really I'm reaching for things to say bad about this game.

All in all, it's a great game that all Xbox 360 holders should have in the collection!

PROS:

Nothing makes me giggle like a little girl like putting the chainsaw to someone.

What other game allows you to curb stomp someone?

Graphics that will blow your mind or get it blown.

Gameplay is great off and online.

CONS:

Movement and running can use a little work.

Feels repetive at times.
