Umm...... Ghost Busters? J/K this are good for a shooter fix all around for sure. I'm currently playing 2017.

It is meant to be a time-consuming game if you are shooting (no pun intended) for it from an achievements' perspective. More bang for your buck so to speak.

The reason why I didn't pop as many achievements (not that I would've gotten many more) is because I started over with each class so I could detail how each played. :)

Huge maps, huge bugs, huge guns, huge explosions, hugely cheesy dialogue. It's perfect! Love this game.

Great review, and thanks for doing it. As Dimmock said, I didn't think there was a chance in hell of it getting one.

Stick to call of duty clearly you can't play anything with a real challenge.

This game is pure chaotic fun. Explosions so massive that you lose all sense of where you are in relation to what's going on around you. A collection of weapons so vast that it would take a UN weapons inspection team a year to find them all. Cheesy dialogue with lots of screaming, yelling and singing. It always seems to be the same guy reporting that he's lost his team and he needs to retreat though, poor bloke.

I've reached 190+ hours now and i'm still not bored with it.

Oh and lets not forget the air tortoise missile. The comedy missile which you can launch and then outrun. Awesome stuff.

If your reading a review to figure out if u should get it u probably shouldn't. It tends to only be for people who know they will like irs cheesy over the top experience. Also I'm at 32 hours and 125 points.

Yeah, there's really only 2 "easy" achievements in this game. I'm at about 75 hours in and 185 points (13 achievements). Definitely a grind-fest, but so much fun. I'll take this type of grind over a Seriously achievement any day.

Im 42 hours in and have 8 achievements. Non stackable playthroughs, 85 levels, 4 character, and 4 difficulty based achievements with each character takes A LOT of time. So 16 playthroughs with 85 levels per playthrough is a little more time consuming than other games out there. But it's one of the most fun games I've played. Long live EDF!
spiral out...keep going....

Considering this game was $10 less than typical full retail, it is absolutely more than worth it.
