Hmm, what can I say? To be perfectly honest, I'm shocked!! A friend of mine suggested this game so that we can play online together so I got it.
I was pleasantly surprised at the game mechanics. I love the graphics, storyline, easy controls, oh, did i mention graphics? I am not into shooters at all but this one keeps me going back for more. You can play all diffuculty levels - giving you a new challenge!
It's also kool that you get to play with your friends or other folk from Xbox Live. It's definitely nice that you can host a co-op game when your partner starts to act dumb. Also - I know that parents will not read this as I don't think most parents look into the games their kids play but it's very graphic and has adult language so keep that in mind.
Ok - to sum it all up - this game is a winner. It's definitely a safe bet as a gift - just beware of the Mature rating - other than that - it gets an A+ from me (someone who loves RPG's and don't really care for shooters)!
