Angry horrible game

I know I'll get flamed, but I don't care. This is a heck of a horrible game, on so many levels. Do not buy it. Do not rent it. Play it only if you can get it free and you're stuck indoors with a snowstorm with no internet, TV, radio, or book.

I'm glad there are only 4 pages of threads and no stickied bitching post because it means people don't care and this game didn't make a lot of sales. Deservedly so.

I don't even know where to start: animation, the story, the audio (OMG is the audio horrible. Don't use it to cue you as to where enemies are because guys that are in front of you may sound like they are to your side or behind you. Trust your eyes and not your ears.), stupid insistence on hand to hand combat,.... forget it I don't even care. Bottom line: this game sucks. Stay away.

P.S. No need to respond. I will not be visiting this game's forum anymore.

Meh. I got it for $20 from Play Asia and I'm enjoying it so far. It was never going to set the world on fire but as far as I'm concerned it's good dumb fun.

I agree that this game is terrible on almost every scale. But, what really makes it so painful for me to sit and play is the controls. It's annoying when you die because the camera angle goes haywire on you, causing you to miss your combo, or even when you run up to an enemy to do a Disarm or Takedown - there is no option to do so.

Painfully annoying game and the worst I've played in 2011.

I'm open to all friend requests. So, if you want to just chat or have some friends on your list, fire away that request!

I mean it is pretty bad, but I don't think it's terrible. It's a good game just to waste time and get achievements.

I really enjoyed this game. I platinumed it on PS3 and am now doing it on 360. The controls, visuals and storyline are all fine. Any problems are mild at best. I can't really see why there's any hate for this, other than getting your ass handed to you on Detective.

Sure. We believe you. If you're so afraid of someone getting mad at you for saying something, maybe you just shouldn't say it.

Anyway, I respect your opinion but I disagree with it. I thought the game was fun. Not 60 dollars fun, mind, but I got it for 8 and feel it was worth a bit more than that.
