I read a line in a review that I liked, "popcorn shooter". That pretty much sums up this game. It's shallow, but it knows it is, so that's OK. The combo mechanic works ok, but doesn't really save this from being pretty thin. But it has nice graphics, smooth gameplay etc etc etc. It's not going to be a classic, but it's a nice enough diversion for people who want a straightforward shooter. In other words - meh.

I watched part of Let's Play of it. It looks like shit, like it pretends to be a good, fun oldschool shooter but it still tries to keep you in the confines of modern mediocrity by having meaningless, boring cutscenes, regen health, ironsights, rewards for doing jack shit (oh look you kicked someone into a cactus that was so obviously there for that purpose good job here have some flashy numbers and give us a high score on metacritic), and lots and lots of shakycam.

Well. It's not a groundbraker, but definitely a refreshment after Calls of Booty and Medals for Whorness.

My friend also bought this, and I also played through it.

To my surprise, of the three games it was probably the one I enjoyed the most. Don't let the demo paint your expectations, it's a lot better than that. Plenty of different opportunities for carnage, and it actually has a half-way decent story.

Plus, Anthony De Longis voices the villain, which is cool.
