Going into this game I thought it was just going to be another fun mindless 3rd person shooter. To the first cut scene to the credits this game had exceded my expectations in every way possible. The lighting and animations are as real as it can get in a shooter, max's story is compeling and addicting. Sure it doesn't give you a lot of control in some parts of the campaign, and the checkpoints could be better. But other than the minor lack of interaction, the game has an ingrossing multiplayer and fun gameplay this is denfinatley worth your money.
