The rocket pack is the main gameplay mechanic, and you can tell a lot of work went into it. The controls are simple and intuitive and the flying animations are entertaining alone, especially going from hovering to flying. There is aerial dog fighting which allows you to fly around shooting enemies with your jet pack mounted guns, or skyjack their flying saucers, it does seem odd that there is nowhere in the game where you switch back and forth between dog fighting and ground fighting.
Another selling point is the T rating, this comes from the fact that your enemies are alien robots that bleed blue and the profanity is mild and sparse. This is a good buy for parents who won't let their kids play gears of war or for people like me who just get sick of the constant stream of profanity most games throw our way.
The biggest drawback to this game is that it is too short, which means it doesn't overstay it's welcome, but it ultimately left me wanting more. The lack of multiplayer makes the length an even bigger sticking point. It's like opening a bag of oreos and finding out there are only three left in the bag.
4/5 for achievements. 3/5 otherwise.
Game is not bad overall, it could have been improved. I'll break it down.
Story: It's okay. But what is a good story in games these days, the game that gets a 9.9 on ign.com that everyone obsesses over for... a week until the next game? I've seen better stories in worse games as well as better games with lame stories, it's highly subjective.
Control: It does take getting used to, but I found them to be quite comfortable relatively quickly. Just be patient. Again, like Bionic Commando, but the controlls are actually easier and similar to TPS games we all know and love.
Visuals: The character renderings themselves aren't bad, but I think the visuals from the stages are really cool and creat a nice atmosphere. Once again, pretty objective.
Sound: Although there are well known voice actors, the voice acting could probably be better but maybe it was the script's fault. The music for, what it is, is not bad but does get repetitive. The sound effects are pretty cool, but any game in 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround sounds cool.
Fun: Again, from an achievement standpoint, I had a lots of fun with this game. All of the achievements are painless. The game is pretty enjoyable itself and is a nice break from playing Modern Warfare 2 online with glitchers and lag switchers. It is pretty short though.Read more ›
The reason I left out one star is because the storyline was very strange. The first half of the plot was great, but after awhile, the story becomes hard to follow, and the ending then comes out of nowhere, leaving you with a lot of questions. I guess they were hoping for a sequel, but the incomplete story was one of this games downfalls.
In terms of parental concerns, from what I remember, it's very family friendly. You use laser guns and blast a lot of robots. I don't remember any major foul language either.
Also, this game IS NOW BACKWARDS COMPATIBLE for Xbox One, so the 360 version of the game will work on the 360 or the One. Considering that you can get the game very cheap these days, I'd say it's worth a buy!
