3/10 Not worth 59.99, not even worth 29.99
This game had alot of people hyped up, it did. The reason why? It was a sequel to an underdog, it had all the marketing for a game that could take the world by suprise. It did...for about a week. If that.
This game was a great first playthrough, even hard mode isn't terrible but the first playthrough and thats it. You just used your 59.99. Hope you savored every bit of it.
Story 9/10: The story is great, I won't spoil anything but obviously theres dinosaurs and that was my favorite part by far. I loved every moment of it. It just escelates into something better every second. Everything else outside of it was basically just like the first game. Nothing special but not a let down. Probably one of the better parts of the game.
Graphics 9/10: Top notch, One of the few games my system struggles with at high settings. If you have a top notch machine this is maybe another point to consider the game if your someone who can appreciate such. I won't say anymore as its not needed.
Singleplayer 8/10: This kinda ties into story but I'll do my best to summarize it. Besides the great story in it you take ahold of alot of different heroes, a few you didnt see in #1. Unfortunately you can't choose your hero in this one. It just gives you one for that chapter or time being in that chapter in some cases. I think I played just about every major hero there was for a bit, enough to learn & somewhat master them. There are things you can go around collecting if your a completionist type. You are able to upgrade your weapons & such during this time, as each kill grants you currency and you come across upgrade stations where you can do so. After playing during the story you do find that one paticular weapon is just a wrecking ball and eventually it makes the game that much easier. This is why I give it only an 8/10 besides I didn't get enough dino action.
Multiplayer 1/10: Alright, brace yourselves. This, is why the game is not only not worth 59.99, or 39.99 probably not even worth 29.99, is the amount of hacking, exploiting this game has. Alot of it you can tell was not intetional by the developers. How do I know this? After playing the first couple days it was released I was able to get some experience in this. It was great, loved it. Felt "vanilla" nothing was touched, most people were fresh to it. Most had no experience from the first. Those who did you noticed, gave you a good fight. But after 3 weeks hacking started to show it self. By october it wasn't hard to distinguish if you were going to be frustrated or not. 9/10 I was leaving games due to hacking (even if it was on my side) within 3 minutes. If it wasn't within 3 minutes its because the game had already ended and I had great patience that day. High moon really screwed up here by adding a non-hacking system. I shouldn't need to say anymore.
Other notes: DLC, on the first day. This is a joke right? You can obviously tell high moon is wanting to suck this game for every penny its worth. What does this mean? It means they aren't up to make a sequel. It means high moon knows they screwed up and they're going to lay off their employees. There is no sequel to this game, not by my eyes. High moon is done. Why release a DLC on the same day and still charge 59.99 for the game. This game's price should've dropped a month ago at least to 39.99 hell even 44.99 would've been fair. 59.99 plus DLC at 9.99 for looks? Its pretty pathetic.
I won't bother making any suggestions as highmoon really isn't worth my time anymore. Honestly its not worth anybodys unless you enjoy having "hack" fights. (Is that a real thing?)
To summarize, if your rich as hell, can shell out 59.99 for about 10 hours this game might be for you for those 10 hours. If you love transformers I have great sympathy for you. Heres a suggestion though. If you can deal with a shooter on console my recommendation is to rent the game or pick up a used copy for your 360/ps3 and enjoy it there. I'm not sure if theres hackers there, doubtful since microsoft & sony probably have their own ways of keeping hackers out where as high moon has 0 anti-hacking support.
Just my 2 cents. What made me do this review is the price. Its still pretty unbelievable. Anybody who still pays anything above 39.99 is pretty terrible at research or extremely desperate for 10 hours of entertainment
