Like Marmite - It's a love or hate thing
I've not played through the entire campaign but so far I've enjoyed every minute of it. I can't understand why the reviewers rate it so low. OK yeah the AI is not the best but it is at it's best when playing the campaign with other people online. The controls can get some getting used to, but I found using Type B in the options suited me better.
I've had a couple of goes on the online game and was quite impressed considering the bad reviews. The only negative thing is that the game suits to small to medium size maps and not the larger scale ones.
The graphics are nice, and to me it is a good shooter with some epic battles with the Akrid. The VS's are a nice touch especially the ones where one person does the driving and 2 other people can get on the turrets on the side.
All in all it is good mindless fun maybe it's not for everyone Ok it's not brilliant but I like it and to me it doesn't deserve some of the bad reviews because it has alot of good points which overcome the bad points.
