Thoughts?
 
Anyone have any thoughts of this upcoming title? At this time I won't be going after this game unless someone can convince me this will be a good game; too close to Dead Space 3 and Crysis 3.

i just ordered it off ebay this morning..in another thread someone said they played it and it was a fun decent game..

I thought it was fun mainly since I haven't played one of these type of games since Time Crisis when they used to have them at arcades. Voice acting in this game is some of the worst that I've heard, but hey, it's only $20 so I wasn't expecting anything spectacular. Gameplay is alright, but the entire campaign including Veteran mode can be completed in under 3 hours. Full 1000:gsicon: can be obtained in under 4 hours.

The first game was fun, not too bad for on rails.

Is the new one a 'Rail Shooter?'

Yes, the entire game is on rails.

Just a quick question ,, is this officially released in the uk ? as the only place i have found it to buy in uk pounds is ebay (suspicious)

Wanz1 02-04-2013 03:42 PM

Can't find it in the US either. Only eBay and/or Amazon.

I found this to be more difficult than Heavy Fire Afghanistan but if you play it co op then you'll never die, makes it way easier for sure.

The radios seem to be screwed for me though. I'm playing on ps3 and I did my first playthrough on my one ps3 and got all but 1 radio. Moved my save over and started my second playthrough and got 5/8 radios, bringing my total up to 12/16, and I still haven't received any trophies/achievements related to the radios. I had to move my save over so that I could play with my move because I didn't want to play vet mode with a controller and my setup for my first ps3 doesn't permit using the move.

Gonna go back through the game on easy and get some headshots anyway but I'm a bit disappointed that these trophies may be glitched for me.

The game was released early here in Canada (about 3 weeks-month ago) but I've just been so busy I haven't been able to get around to it yet. I don't think this is supposed to be released outside of NA just so everyone knows. Not 100% sure but from what I've gathered this is a NA exclusive and most Canadian EB Games/Gamestops broke the street date for it.

Yeah you have to press start and then controllers and assign more, you can have upbto 4.

Games dumb easy to me 3hr 11min to 1k.

Also best gun to use is the shotgun, I averaged a accuracy of 184% because you will kill 3 in 1 shot most of the time. So you will never run out of ammo as with all the clips it holds 300, I never got below 80 before the level ended and it automatic too.

ok thanks for that will grab a copy from ebay then

Wanz1 02-11-2013 01:00 PM

GameStop finally had it available for online ordering only. I'll be getting it on Tuesday, the 12th. I'll have to squeeze it in between Dead Space 3 and Crysis 3. :)

Skorpion XBA 02-14-2013 12:50 PM

I'll just bypass the arguments here and state that I'll probably get this game from GameFly. Yeah, it's only $20, but if it only takes a few hours to 1k it then I don't want to blow that when I could be getting something else.

Wanz1 02-16-2013 12:26 AM

The game got much better once I figured out how to invert the Y axis.

I found this at Gamestop yesterday for $16.99 used. Not bad, I'm enjoying it, for what it is.

Ali_P_84 03-27-2014 07:21 PM

I'm finding the controls a bit fiddly and the crosshair to be too slow moving. It's an enjoyable game to an extent but a bit frustrating as well. Definitely better suited to a mouse as a controller.

Shinnbob 04-04-2014 12:21 AM

I wouldn't really call it fun tbh. Achievements were easy, gameplay just felt like a Wii game, probably be better suited for a kinect arcade game really.
