This is the game for gamers who are a bit sick of covering all the time, bit sick of the VATS in fallout 3....just want to pick up a pad and make things dead. The cross over of RPG and FPS works well and they dont stand on the others toes. Plenty of guns to choose from though all variations of about 5-6 types of gun though they all have a different feel to them. The online is one of the major selling points, and it should be; this game is HARD. To attempt some parts on your own is foolish and extremely boring as you respawn over and over. However twice now someone has helped me get through a bandit hideout, helped me kill the boss and then nabbed all the loot. Erm, sorry, im hosting, i need that artifact, your a way higher level than me, and now your cashing it in for the XP and cash, right. Kicked. Thats happened twice for me and might be why i cant play the game on my own or with others.
So be warned, this game is good, but play it with other people and if you can play it with people you know so you can split the loot, and if you join someone elses game PLAY NICE.
