Great game falls just short.
on May 25, 2009
I want to preamble by saying this game is great. It's fun, there are numerous different locations and some fun bosses to beat.
However, the #1 complaint I have that stopped an otherwise graphically beautiful, epic game, from getting 5 stars, is the lack of a strong story line. While the plot sounds epic, the way the cut-scenes are filmed stops the player from really caring about the situation. We are witness to the invasion and destruction of San Fransisco, and a serious threat to the continental defenses of the US, but there is never a sense that it REALLY matters.
This is a great, but generic first person shooter. About 15 hours of game play if you have fun playing.
