Summary

Maybe not as good as the computer version but still damn good!

The Good

Well the first thing anyone will love about this game is BULLET TIME!!! If you ever wanted to recreate The Matrix then this is definitely for you. Also the little details the game has, like when you shoot someone in the head blood will actually hit against the wall where it should. Also the weapon selection is pretty large and the guns look extremely realistic.

The Bad

The "dream" levels, extreme pain in the ass. Fortunately there's only 2 but it's impossible to get through them with out a strategy guide. Also the loading times are a little long but nothing unbearable. The enemies don't have many models so you'll probably kill the same guy about 50 times throughout the game. Also the controls are a little hard to get used to.

The Bottom Line

Great game thats a lot of fun but it does have it's flaws.
