Summary

Amazing first-person shooter game; love it!

The Good

You can play as over 100 different characters in multiplayer, and there are several maps and modes to choose from. The graphics are outstanding for its time, even if the animation is a little bit too cartoon-like. There are tons of guns, from the past, present, and future. The single-player campaign can be played alone or with a friend, and each level takes place in a different time period. You get different weapons in each level, and the tasks are never easy to accomplish. You can play the campaign on Easy, Normal, or Hard difficulty, giving it extra replay value. There is also an Arcade League, in which you play these arcade-style challenges. You can play through the league to unlock new maps and characters in multiplayer, which is another fun part about the game. There is also a Challenge Mode, which is like Arcade Mode, except different. I can't go into detail about that one, though. The sound is extremely well done, and the music is incredible.

The Bad

I like a lot about this game, but I have to say that the campaign is a little too short and the story isn't easy to follow. Also, the weapons appear to be floating in midair; it doesn't look like a hand is holding them. But, other than that, it is a very, very, very good game.

The Bottom Line

Every FPS fan would be doing themselves a favor by picking up this game. It is good for all three sixth-generation systems. With so much to do, and so much fun, no gamer can go wrong with this game.
