So I went to Gamestop and traded in Oblivion and Mass Effect. I walked around the store trying to come up with a game I could trade for and reluctantly grabbed this game. Let me tell you, this is by far one of the best games for the 360. This game will blow you away with its' graphics and gameplay.
The setting is a futuristic shooter-thriller style game. There aren't swarms of enemies but believe me on difficulties higher than easy, they can be hard to kill. You feel very much like your playing in a movie with it's exceptional graphics and storyline. The story reminds me a little of the movie Event Horizon. I've played a lot of futuristic games due to the fact you can consider me somewhat of a trekkie. The thing that set this future game apart from the other is the terminology and weapons. They are very original!
So not to spoil the game's story your basically a salvage team that has to get a huge Frigate(Planet Cracker) up and running again, but to do so you have to basically get every part of the ship working again while killing alien life forms.
Aside from the awesome array of weapons, which all have two firing modes, you can also use stasis modules to freeze enemies, then pistol whip them or curb stomp them. You also have the ability for kenesis(spelled wrong), to pick up and throw object. An awesome part of this game is the fact that you blow enemies limbs and heads off. Or even blow chunks out of them with your pulse rifle.
In some of the levels you have to do space walks or zero G containment areas which is really cool and unique. I haven't ever played another game that has this. You can walk on the ceiling and walls in a zero g area.
Anyways here is my breakdown for this game:
Graphics: 10/10 (Visually Stunning)
Story: 9/10 (Feel like you in a movie)
Sounds: 10/10 (Lots of ambient noise)
Enemy: 9/10 (Sci-Fi Monsters and Undead)
Mulitplayer: 0/10 (There is NO multiplayer)
Game Length / Replay Ability: 5/10 Linear game play(The game is somewhat lenthy and you may have to play 2-3 times through to get all the achievements, but it is single player only, so once you get all the achievements, game over)
Achievement difficulty: 6/10 (Achievements aren't that hard to unlock for the most part, except for beating the game on Insane(really, really hard)
Recommended Retail Value: $49.99
