The destruction system is excellent, causing havoc feels great, there are dozens of weapons each with its own upgrades, side-quests are fun and the voice acting is nice. Awesome!
What's not so awesome is the characters, the music, the AI and the story...
The characters are easily forgettable and the story feels weak mainly because the good guys win only thanks to the main character (who's just some generic dude). The EDF aren't that hard to beat either (I played on Normal).The game also talks about some Marauders during the beginning, but they only appear twice in the story. Some interesting events happen throughout the story every now and then, thankfully.
The AI is dumb, but at least it's funny watching the enemies and allies do weird stuff sometimes. The music is there, but nothing really stands out. Everything sounds the same and it's usually hard to even hear the music, because of all the loud noises (fighting EDF, blowing up stuff, etc.)
One last big annoyance is the the ore crystals & the EDF crates. There are way too many crystals and crates and they are all too far away from each other. The rewards you get for destroying them are also negligible. 6-12 salvage per crystal and about as much per crate? That's it? If there were fewer of them, but rewarded more salvage (and maybe even stuff other than salvage, like unique weapons or temporary buffs, or discounts to certain upgrades) then maybe it would've been fun destroying them all.
Despite its flaws it's a good game. Even better now that GFWL is dead! Definitely worth playing!
