For prospective buyers.
I just finished the game on PS3 and it is far, far, better than the metacritic would imply. Oh it has plenty of issues but the shooting is adequate, the unique mechanic is useful and fun (but designed such that except for "boss" battles you can get by without it if you want to), the graphics -design- (note: not necessarily fidelity here just design) is good, and I personally found the story great although the actual telling of it could possibly have been implemented better.

Left me wanting a sequel especially for the possibilities of the story continuation being almost endless (not going to say more than that because spoilers).

Possibly a little short for the price but I'm sure there will be a steam sale at some point (or again?).

Didn't get to have a look at coop much but it seemed to work fine and was enjoyable what littel I played. Although the "forced separation" areas seemd a little well... forced... as though the developers put them in as an afterthought.

It does take a while to get going unfortunately, but around chapter 5 or 6 i found it started getting immensely better (and was still enjoyable before then, just not as much). Final 3-4 chapters **** started gettin real intense :D

this game is excellent, great shooter with solid mechanics, very good gunplay ( very important element in this type of games ). in terms of mechanics its almost the same as gears-of-war. really very solid shooting and hide-behind-covers mechanics. it has very nice engaging story to it and in the end it left feeling of great sci-fi adventure. lots of fun. too bad there is not a sequel. pure fun. awesome game.

I just started playing it tonight. It actually feels like a messy Gears of War clone. It gets the job done but it's not quite as polished. I'm around chapter 5; enjoying it so far.

It sure would be a shame if Gears of War was a micro$oft exclusive... wait a minute it is!

not everyone has an xbox, or wants one, despite some good exclusives they have.

Been playing it so far and it's not that bad other than the constant crashing and blue-screens that I get from playing.

Only the first one, and I refuse to play a series unless I can play all of them (or at least all of the primary titles, some stuff slips through the cracks like kingdom hearts ds stuff)
