i think its alot of fun.the story completley sucks, and it seems like a pretty straight forward game so far ( i just started the 3rd act.)not to mention the hardest difficulty is one of the easiest things ive ever played. imo worth a rent or buy it when it gets around $30. havent played multiplayer yet though.

I love this game, I think the multiplayer could really be something if they had more people, some cool maps!
Single player is not too bad, achievements are fun overall. I would spend $30 on the game.

I just got a copy from gamefly. Ive played it a lil only though. Ive noticed a couple of aggrivating flaws, but the game has still been fun. Multi Player was kinda sad becuase barely anyone was on for a full 24 hour period.
Definately worth a rent tho.

Wouldn't buy, definately worth a rent. Time powers are fun but that's about the extent of the innovation in it. Everything else is buy the book shooter stuff.

This game has its moments. I am a dedicated FPS fan and this is nothing but average. Now I'm not saying thats a bad thing. However; Single-player is mediocre at best.
Pros:
You can steal weapons from and kill enemies before they get a shot off.
Who doesn't like to see the reaction of the guy who threw a sticky nade at you just to see it go back into his pocket?
Achievements are pretty balanced. (Almost 500/500 SP/MP ratio)
You are an all around badass.
Cons:
You get all powers at the begining.
Story is bland.
Enemies are not smart even on Elite.

Multiplayer is a completely different story. It is "different", for lack of a better word. It is extremely underrated and would be 10x better if more people played. Not many know the adrenaline rush of dodging 5 rockets, 3 Clutch grenades, and 100 rounds of ammo at once in a split second inches from your face coming at you from all 360 degrees out of 8 guns at one time. The maps are ripped from the single player mostly and are converted into very enjoyable, playable maps for multiplayer(most with their own time bending environmental elements.). Game types are typical for an FPS but all of them can be adjusted and customized near what Halo 3 offers.
I would definitely say a rent as of now, but if you ever see it for 20-30 bucks grab it. It's a great game to kill time waiting for the next in the queue from Gamefly.

I vote no.
Rent it and drag your way through the achievements, I didn't find it too fun IMO.

I got this game for 4 dollars and it's pretty much paid for itself. Think mix of Gears with Halo. It's not amazing just very average. It has it's moments but the achievements are pretty easy to get so if your an achievement hunter.

Worth a purchase several years down the line now. Found it for 2.99, which meant it was half the price of dlc pack 2! But as I'm going for the 1250g, I had to have it. Actually enjoying it, and despite showing its age, it's a fun game. Worth a buy at what I paid.

This game was bits of fun in single player, but it isn't good enough today, it is just so plain shooter. No character progression or storytelling, 10 second long cutscenes between missions, that make no sense. Also, some of the "quick reaction" sequences were very annoying and stupid. How you are supposed to know on first try, that you will drop down to a hole and die if you don't activate timeshift... or the bomb plant sequences. Ridiculous. The bomb timer is so short that you have no chance to survive if you don't activate timeshift and run away. So technically you would have no chance to survive without time manipulation, when you set up a bomb. Who the hell does that...

Also, once you get that crossbow that has exploding arrows, the game becomes ridiculously easy. You can carry 40 shots and they almost never run out and every basic enemy dies with one hit. Not to mention you can stop time and hit the enemy with 100% possibility. So the game has no real challenge, worthwhile storytelling or cutscenes, just a plain weak Half-life 2 copy mixed with elements from F.E.A.R., can be bits of fun, but very average game.

Granted this is 2014, but I can't imagine spending any real money on this game.
