Is this a story based shooter?
Does the game have a story? Or just generic shooting stuff? If yes, how good is the story?

TQ!

Of course it is! It is, in fact, the story-based shooter of the...well, forever.

Let's just say great would be an understatement.

Is it good to play on Android?

Do it justice and play it on PC. This game is best played with mouse and keyboard, it's a FPS. And with Android you can't play it on any device but Nvidia Shield. Do you have a Shield?

Not really. Just a Tegra 3 tablet. I can play at even 10fps, I don't care.

Immensly overrated. Something to waste 2 or 3$ on during holiday sales, don't buy it outside of one.
Play metro if you want an excellent "story-based" shooter.

Yes there is a story, but it's so full of plot holes and messiah praising of the main character that honestly...if you are looking for a good story pass on this. The plot and story, what little actually gets presented, comes off as a very very bad fanfiction. Not to mention has a cliffhanger so you buy more content. Wait for a steam sale so you get it for the least money you can possibly spend. But personally any game that requires more then one nonsensical plot points and/or deus ex machinas for it's story to work is NOT a good story.

It's the best game I have played, playing it for like the 10th time, still is amazing

Seriously I could go on for days, I have played all the half lifes... in order might I add. It has been the most enjoyable fun, hard (depends on your game style), complete story driven game I have ever played, no game stands up to it.. not even Bioshock.. and I LOVE those games!

Oh? So I guess climbing into a restraining pod twice, where thr first time removes all your weapons, is the sign of intelligence? Or how the second time delivers you right to the office of the bad guy all gift-wrapped? Or the fact that you do nothing but really run around and get praised as a messiah for it?

Oh yes, the writtiing and story in this game are subpurb, shakespear quality even. /sarcasm

See, no one forces you to climb in the Pods. It is your decision, though it probably won't end that bad to climb in. And I don't get why you feel like you are being praised to much, after all you actually achieved. If you are playing on the hardest difficulty, you will feel like you are praised for a reason, and as a matter of facts, you are. And I don't get why you think the story is written so bad, but if you think Half Life has a bad story, I can't help you. Maybe you should just stick to your simple CoD junk and stop ranting. Besides, what is a subpurb anyway?

I don't play CoD fanboy. Less then two years before this game came out there was Metroid:Prime, a game with NO speaking voices and one that did a far better job convaying a story. Then there is this game where everyone likes and praises you for no realistic reason, and if 'difficulty' is your basis for story...go read some actual books. For both our sakes.

This game, you have no choice but to be an idiot in the climax, twice. If you want to continue, you have to climb into the pod, whether it's a cutscene or me pushing a button, it's forced on you. But hey, continue to praise a subpar story of a average game. The only praise I would give this game is that the vehicle sections are actually not that bad. Other then that, especially nowadays, I would reccomend you save your money for something that is better.
