" In the year 2161, survival of the fittest will take a whole new meaning. Cybernetically enhanced forces from the east will battle a genetically engineered army from the west, utilizing never-before seen terrain deforming weapons. The battlefield will never be the same."
Or will it? This is an old 2008 game from Lucasart that I got a long time ago but forgotten about it. It isn't a bad game, in fact its really good. It is just there are now so many games like it. The game is in a battle between the East Coast and West Coast (Tupac and Biggie Smalls anyone?).It was great because it had this terrain moving gun where you can shape how the battlefield is to your advantage. Besides that, it had multiplayer, good graphics and a wide selection of weapons to test out, along with vehicle challenges which I don't see in shooter games anymore. The game-play is third person instead of first person like most shooters are and it follows the story of Rhodey (War Machine from Iron Man anyone?) and eventually you get through many detailed and varied battlezones. It is very well done.
Yet I am going to sell it to be able to review other games for you. 1 out of 10 beers to enjoy because it feels too much like I've seen something like it before. (especially this giant walker Dreadnought thing which looks like something from Jak 3) ---- C U next time. Hee-Haw Mystery Black.
