Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule

I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

What do these ratings mean?

To start, I absolutly love this game.

And now the review:
As many people notice while first looking at this game is the beauty of it. There has been no other game with graphics such as these. There are some problems at times, but nothing major.

Gameplay is extremely fun. I wasn't able to let go of the controler while playing this game. There is so much satisfaction from each thing you do. Reving up your chainsaws and slicing an enemy in half never gets old, especially in multiplayer, and the pop-and-stop gameplay that epic has created feels new every time. I love killing enemies from cover. It's so much better than running out into the middle of a battlefield and shooting at someone. Cover is absolutley needed in this game.

The only thing holding this game back from an A+ is the short story mode. It's only about 6-7 hours, which isn't a huge deal but I kept wanting more from the game. Many people complain about the story, which this game is lacking, but I would rather have a basic story than a screwed up one(coughalo2cough). You get so involved in the characters and how they act toward eachother, and the sheer beauty of the game, that the story doesn't really come into context.

All in all, this truely is a piece of art, and shows EPIC at it's prime. If you own a 360, you should definatly pick up this game.
