There's no saving humanity, no detailed world to explore, no need to bone up on military strategy or tactics. Instead, "The Club" boils down simply to this: how many people can you shoot, and how fast can you do it?
Sure, the game is thinly wrapped in a pulpy "Running Man"-style story casting you as one of eight characters, such as an extreme-sports thrill-seeker or a burly Russian hunter, drawn into an underground blood sport for the amusement of rich fans.
That's an excuse, if one was needed, for blasting your way through a variety of mostly industrial settings or fending off waves of attackers as you try to stay alive for a set period of time.
The twist in "The Club" is that you rack up points for each kill, and by stringing kills close together, you earn bonuses that multiply your points. Extra points are awarded for stylish moves like head shots, or breaking through a door and taking out opponents on the other side.
The graphics are decent but not spectacular given where we are in the Xbox 360's lifespan. Sound production is bordering on great, with the various weapons producing a variety of satisfyingly realistic blasts.
The best design element of the game is perhaps the control scheme, which is intuitive and simple, and is notable for the wonderful inclusion of a "quick spin" button that whirls you around 180 degrees in an instant. That's a useful trick when you are beset by foes on all sides, and hopefully will be something that makes its way into other games.Read more ›
The goal of the game is to reach the end of the level with highest possible score. In order to do this you must chain together combos, for instance shooting someone in the head with a bullet you ricocheted off a wall after having rolled across the floor will earn more points than just shooting your enemies in the head. Each kill adds more time to your kill bar, which acts as a multiplier. The higher the kill bar, the more points you earn for a kill.
The levels are short, but there can be a lot of action in each level. It all depends on how well you play, and how many cool combos you can string together. With short levels comes a short game. There's maybe 6 hours, if that of gameplay. But if you like to hunt for achievements than you'll a bit more time especially if you try to get them without help.
All in all, this game is worth picking up if you find for a good price. I paid about $16 or so, not bad...would rather have paid less but it's not worth griping about. And there's never anyone playing online, although I found about 6 people who were on it on day...but you need 8 in order to start a match.
Oh and the leaderboards are filled with cheaters. On most of the boards you'll see the #1 guy with 2-4 million points, which is normal and than 2nd place with 200,000-300,000 and 3rd place will have 1-2 million points! Obviously the guy in 2nd cheated. Plus that guy in 2nd place will have the same score on multiple boards for that tournament.

The game arrived in good condition but the game itself is quite lame. I stopped playing nag it after about 15mins and never put it back in the Xbox.Published 2 months ago by L.Smith
I understand that it is one of Xbox 360's first games, but wow, it can be a little on the cheesy side, and in incredibly easy to play. It is a cool concept, and that I'll give it.Published on March 8, 2014 by Joseph D. Slater

This game is a generic arcade style game. It is boring and repetitive. Knowing what I know now, I wouldn't have taken this game if it was given to me.Published on May 9, 2009 by Jeremy R. Byrd
