The original games had great wide open maps, objectives and freedom to play it how you wanted to. Now you are moving through a linear script with very little freedom. We want the large open environments of early on. The weapon customization was great but the game lacked freedom of choice. Even the previous AW series co-op multiplayer was great as you could customize the game and hunt the enemy which was totally pulled from this version.… Expand

Any RPG's that have a good story and provide a chance to learn about and explore a world sounds great.....that was until I played it. It seemed clunky, and fragmented with that 'Been there, done that feeling'. That's not to say it was a bad game but not really one I would have bought if I could go back and do it again. I didn't even finish it so honestly can't tell you if it got better. Go here, do that. Find this. Yes you can collect look to upgrade your clothes, weapons but the game overall didn't do anything to make me keep playing.… Expand

RPG elements like upgrading your plane to the amount of customization keep you wanting to rake in the cash. From the vast amounts of weapons and gadgets to the ability to pick the way you want to play; be it stealthy or guns blazing they did a good job on this one.
At first not hearing Sam's original voice was a little odd but gradually went away. The graphics with the HD install were ok. The controls are tight and responsive although there are a few hang-ups with movement and physics.
The co-op missions are a lot of fun and provide plenty of replayability with or without someone playing along side you. The 'Defend your position' levels were the most fun with you being able to use a mix of aggressive or stealth gameplay and not be penalized for it.
A game worth a lot of your time and effort!… Expand

After the sharp learningI was so excited about the potential for an MMO on the 360, read everything I could and got caught up in the hype. After the sharp learning curve and first month of technical problems it becomes just a game that makes you repeat the same things you have done a million times. Go there and do this or go there and kill that. The world is bland and lifeless compared to games like GTA even if they are different worlds. You can drive forever in Defiance without seeing much, not that it's even worth seeing. After you play through a couple of Ark Falls and finish the solo story you just lose interest. There isn't enough meat in the game to keep you coming back. Maybe if the world expanded or your leveling was set up in a different fashion. The level system could use some work and perks could be better but works ok as it is. The whole game is ok but had so much more potential.
The other thing to consider is how are they going to roll into the new console generation? This is an online game through their servers. With the new generation coming are they going to set you up on the new xbox or are you going to have to buy another game since they just signed on for a second season?… Expand

Oh to go back in time and wiped away the original ending and tied this in as the post climax finish.… Expand
