Story - Was short but fun and a good taste test but I want more.
Graphics - The environments are beautiful the enemies and gear all look really nice too I honestly can't complain.
Enemies - They are fun relatively intelligent and are varied. I do however wish the bosses had a bit more to them as far as mechanics go.
All in all this game is the most fun I have had in a while its the only FPS I've truly enjoyed sense halo days.… Expand

The guns were goodThis game did one thing phenomenally well and that was to tell a dark, intelligent, and truly compelling and rich story. The guns were good and felt right the character you play moves throughout the world nicely and it feels truly unique that you are in fact a part of your environment as it does affect you.
However the only major downside and the reason why I did not give this a 10 is that sometimes the A.I. can be totally moronic and this often would make it easier than perhaps it should have been even in ranger mode on hard.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.2Feb 15, 2013Fun game and a massive improvement to the original but some how it just got boring. I don't care about loot so much and grinding to get it isFun game and a massive improvement to the original but some how it just got boring. I don't care about loot so much and grinding to get it is just ridiculous so I cheated tested out all the best and meh is all I can say. If you take the loot out this game suddenly becomes quite dull which is sad because loot shouldn't make a game special.
On top of that they put out two DLC which each has the exact same running joke about the guy betraying you. I don't know the joke got old and although the game made me laugh I wouldn't have minded a few serious moments or truly epic moments at least to allow me to enjoy the comical moments more. A game that is a constant joke just isn't funny or fun in the end.… Expand

Average User Score: 6.3Feb 8, 2013Gun construction is fun honestly I could spend hours just messing around (I have spent hours) with the weapons.
Gameplay same as any deadGun construction is fun honestly I could spend hours just messing around (I have spent hours) with the weapons.
Gameplay same as any dead space with the exception of a few more action spots and some explorable spots which are nice breaks from the intensity of the rest of the game and really helps one get a feel for the world they are in.
Graphics amazing probably best on Xbox
Co-op honestly it;'s fun it takes away a good chunk of the horror factor but I treat co-op and solo as two separate games like multi-player and single player on any other shooter you can't play multi-player on ANY game and expect a single player experience anyone who did was a fool. However Co-op is really well done and the unique concept the creators came up for players to experience (especially if you are playing as the second character) brought me and my friend some true entertainment I don't want to give spoilers but he thought I was going crazy and that has never been done in game before!
A lot of people bash on it being less of a thriller and more of an action game. Honestly it's no less thrilling the other Dead space I find my heart racing quite a bit (dead space 1+2 weren't more thrilling or scary you all know it just want to complain that they were) Plus this game has so many replay option to play in traditional style dead space or hardcore etc.
All in all they did some unique things never done before in any game ever. Many of the things they did they did better than any game ever. Prime examples, best co-op, best graphics (on xbox) best weapon design/ creation, best mix of linear and sandbox and it still gets my heart pounding just as much as the last two dead space games.… Expand

Whatever gun loadout you choose and power up you can always be effective
Story - Pulled me back into the Halo universe and gives you A LOT of information and story content in a short time period and if you don't know the lore and have not watched some of the content on Waypoint or the in game terminals than you might get lost pretty easily.
Enemies - Unique combat in all game types makes it fun and on legendary forces you to be the perfect soldier
Spartan Ops - Special mention because two reasons the first the cinematic is addicting I find myself anticipating it as much as I would my favourite TV series. However the missions can be generic.
War games - Very well done good maps overall great new game types but I do miss big team objective.
Forge - Very well done and can't wait to see what people can create!… Expand
Average User Score: 8.1Sep 27, 2012Borderlands 1 was a really well done game it had a ton of fresh new concepts that actually worked out really well. From the guns, the gunBorderlands 1 was a really well done game it had a ton of fresh new concepts that actually worked out really well. From the guns, the gun combat the character progression the wide open areas and the replay-ability. Not to mention the co-op play although I have always been more of a solo artist sense I have no reliable friends to play with that wouldn't ninja everything purple and up. However it had many flaws much of the original content as far as landscape went was very monotone and felt uninteresting especially after multiple play through I found myself hating some areas very quickly but craving others. In Borderlands 2 this all changes every area is new and interesting and feels like they all have more of a story to tell and more of a history behind them like how they got to that point which in a way makes me thankful some of the original BL1 was someone bleak and basic because that simply was the history of Pandora. On top of that the story line is actually very interesting and has consistent humor all the way through. The guns have also been improved in the aspect that there are now significantly more unique possibilities Another big on is the side quests which in borderlands 1 were simply a means to level and get some more loot but now they are actually quite interesting and all tell stories of their own that help to build up the characters in the game.
In short I am extremely impressed and have not enjoyed a game this much in a very long time.… Expand

You'll beat it again you'llSo you beat the game that should take you maybe 8 hours and you think hmm pretty good story kind of fun combat. You'll beat it again you'll think same old but combat was much better. You'll beat it again same old combat once again better. You'll try miserably to beat it again for what reason you do not know but what you do know is you need to grind ever better gear just so you can beat a game you have already beaten 3 times and you begin to wonder what exactly am I doing? I have already experienced all this game has to offer nothing new is coming and yet I am grinding gear to accomplish what? You will stand their puzzled and confused because this does not make sense.
You will than say to yourself am I missing something? The answer you will later realize either by yourself or by reading reviews is No.
So do I recommend this game? No.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.4Feb 25, 2012This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Primary reason why people are giving low scores is cause of bugs. EVERY game has bugs in the beginning they have already made huge progress on dealing with them. To be honest I never encountered ANY bugs that broke my experience or the game and I have put 180+ hours... (I know ridiculous) Only bugs I generally see are a few quests that didn't work but non were important to the games progression. The other bugs were with clipping like me shooting a body half into something which is is hilarious anyway.
Some people have the nerve to talk about the physics being bad really? First game I ever seen with rivers that have force waterfalls that push arrows that feel reasonable (Not bang on but not to far off) Not to mention.
People also complain about NPC's being repetitive. How many things do you expect them to program into the NPC's to say my god they can't spend years recording endless "useless banter" I am glad they put some in to give the characters some life but let's be honest would you want them to waste years of time and tons of game space just so you can hear endless amounts of pointless conversation I mean seriously that be ridiculous.
Next point is people going on and on about "filler" quests there are a handful of repeat quests but the strong majority (at least 90+ hours of my play time worth) were all unique quests with unique characters in unique environment that if you pay attention can be quite captivating. Heck I remember recently walking into a random dungeon for no reason all of a sudden I am involved in some tragic necromancers war and he's using an enslaved Jarl as a lackey I thought that was neat for just a random nothing dungeon.
Gear? Really people these days want WoW type gear systems were ever they go. I can't stand random gear systems it just means you have to spend more time looking for gear that enjoying the game. Elder scrolls gear systems are more in tune with a gun game were you put some effort into getting the look/feel you like but that just enjoy the game and not have to concern with it.
If I am going to chop something's head of with an axe I will admit having a cool axe is nice but I don't see a point in having 10 cool axes non of which have exactly the stats I want. Instead I prefer to make my favourite axe put the enchants that reflect my play style (soul capture and life steal) and let me go. Although I use a bow not an axe but you get the point.
Honestly best game I have ever played for any genre main reason for that? Because it was a full game! I put ridiculous hours into this a single player and still have stuff that needs doing (I have not even touched the repeat stuff) I am so SICK of games coming out and a week later downloadable content because it's a business. At least Bethesda tries to make money but not at the expense of putting cut up products to make that money.… Expand
