I picked this game up due to it's price and the fact that I was bored. It was made by EA so I wasn't expecting much and when it came I threw it to the side because I forgot that I even ordered it - I had no intention of playing it.
Then a couple of weeks later I was bored and decided let's try this out. I was shocked, just shocked. How the hell could EA make a game this good?
This game is one of the best games I've played this year, the game is simple, the controls are simple and it doesn't take long to learn how to play effectively. The atmosphere and environments are really good and the death scenes were amazing.
Achievement wise, most of them are fairly easy and rewarding to pick up with one achievement being ridiculously frustrating and another requiring you to complete the game in the hardest difficulty which is tough. It'll take two and a half playthroughs - minimum - to get all 1000 gamerscore available in this game.
I don't want to say much more as I'm sure all the other reviewers have filled in those gaps but this game is a game I'd recommend to others.
