After reading EG's review of this on WNR, I decided to at the very least give it a rental. I went into it not expecting much, but after playing it for a bit yesterday, this is a damn good shooter (and gasp, it's just as good as Gears of War 2). If you're going into it expecting a great story, then you'll be disappointed, but if you just want some mindless fun and lots of good gunplay, then I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. Color me shocked, as I never figured I'd enjoy this as much as I have. I almost want to go buy it just to play thru it on hard difficulty after I beat it on normal. Great shooter and a great game, but be forewarned, if strong language bothers you, then stay away. I've heard more 50 Cent music from this game than I've heard in my life.
