Average User Score: 8.4May 8, 2013This game is a love letter to the action movies of the 80s and while there will be plenty of young people who won't understand or see the humour and references in it, I and my generation will and therefore I will forever be thankful for everyone at Ubisoft Montreal for developing this title and also for Ubisoft to decide to publish it. In this age of game-development issues, studios closing left and right and disney owning lucas it is very refreshing to see someone having the balls (or ovaries) to just go for it.
We should all praise them for it even if some of us are too young to appreciate such a title.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.2Apr 17, 2013This is one of my favorite games so be warned, I might be a bit biased. :)
I honestly feel that of all my Xbox360 games (and I do have quite a few) this is the one that was the best "investment". As many have said before me, this is exactly what a sequel should be: bigger, better, smoother but still basically the same.
I have never been disappointed in this game, every time I play it a smile appears on my face that won't go away until it's time to go to sleep (I do have to work, sadly). There is a ton of content in this game, the gunplay never gets old and the characters are different enough that you need to approach situations very differently depending which one you use.
I just wish more of my friends would play it so we could do more co-op. Sadly, they are mostly BF3 fanatics.… Expand
Average User Score: 6.2Apr 12, 2013Very disappointed in this game.
For some reason they've simplified the gameplay to the point that it is not really a co-op shooter any more but a game where two people shoot-stuff-up side by side. Besides lifting some gates and getting revives, you almost never need to rely on your teammate. Getting more money is the only incentive to use "smarter" killing methods so many times you basically forget that he (or she) is also there.
An other problem is the overkill mechanic is exactly what it's name says and makes the game way too easy. We've played on Insane difficulty without using Overkill (except the parts where you must, like shooting up the huge truck in the chase sequence) and the game still wasn't giving us a challenge.
This is a very different game than the previous two parts where teamwork was a MUST. Here it's nothing more than an option and that is pretty sad.… Expand
