Years ago, the Locust Horde gathered under every major city and launched a surprise attack. Untold numbers died on Emergence Day, and rather than allow the Locust to keep the spoils of their aggression, humans used chemical weapons and orbital particle beams to destroy them - and their own cities. With most urban centers and military installations rubble, survivors gathered on Jacinto Plateau, whose solid granite strata could not be easily penetrated. When the Horde breached the plateau's defenses, Marcus Fenix defied orders to save his father at East Barricade Academy - but he was too late. Charged with dereliction of duty, he has been sentenced to 40 years in Jacinto Maximum Security Penitentiary...
It's pretty generic, just like most third person shooters this days.
shoot the **** out of lods'a monsters, hear a annoying briefing that won't help you even a bit, use bigass machinegun, face different enemies and all the **** you can imagine(in a action game of course).
But, this game, has nothing too inovative, it's just, TAKE COVER, SHOOT, SPRINT TO COVER, SHOOT, KILL AND ENEMIE USING MELEE, ADVANCE IN STAGE, KILL THEM, KILL MOAR LOCUST, ADVANCE IN STAGE, and keep on goin'.
i had a bit of fun, but sometimes, this game gets too damn boring and wanky.
i say, it's not the best game in the earth, so far it's not the worst.
btw, the mutiplayer in this game is pretty good, check it out once you get da game.
The chainsawgun is fun and satisfying. Rarely got to actually use the chainsaw.
The other guns were pretty much useless. Except for the sniper-rifle. And the hammer of dawn which is a heat laser coming down from the sky from a satellite, but you can only use it in specific locations.
I dislike that you have to stop to pick up ammo on the ground. I dislike that your character goes into walking mode whenever speaking on his ear-radio. Ruins the pacing.
The characters at first felt very stereotypical, but they grew on me. And i started to like them.
Being able to give your team commands is completely useless. And they never actually cover you.
There are 4 of you in total, but there is always a new reason to split up so its usually just 2 of you.
There isnt much of a variety in enemies. Nothing special about the story.
The reload mechanic is fun.
Some stages are very atmospheric.
Not much a great game. At least is enough to have fun for a while. For being a co-op, it's not bad either, but there are not much strategies to do. In fact, in higher difficulties, most of the times you have to wait for a long time taking cover to avoid shots. Though, in some parts the real action appears and the game becomes more entertaining.
The graphics are excellent, really well worked, but the background remains similar along the game. After a while, the gameplay can get boring (I think just a few times) and also the story, that by the way I've never thought it was interesting. The game was long enough and has lots of gore, at the point I almost thought was unnecessary, but that's personal choice. And the end, though short, is the best part in my opinion. If you really games for just killing guys and with lots of blood, you won't regret playing it.
