Summary

HE'S BACK, BIGGER AND MORE STEROIDIER THAN EVER

The Good

This game blew my freakin' mind. It was actually the first ever fps that I played and it's the one that got me started into fps games. The gameplay looks more solid than Sam's biceps, and that's pretty solid! I love the outlandish weapons, freaky monsters, and the colourful enviroments.

My only problem with this game are the graphics and the multiplayer, but I'll touch on that later. The music is also an accomplishment to me. And the blood and gore make me sh*t my pants everytime I play.

The Bad

Here are the not-so-great parts. Well, the story isn't all that interesting. I forced myself to play through the story mode (although the gore was fun). And there really was no point to it in the end. The multiplayer isn't exactly solid. And don't start about the graphics.... otherwise everything's great!!

The Bottom Line

BUY IT
