Entering a gun fight with a chainsaw

Its bloody, its gory and its great. This is probably the only game where you can stomp on someone's head or rip him off with a chainsaw. The third person elements in this game is great, there is the simple cover mechanic that allows you to pop your head from around a well and take well timed shots, or just blind-fire. You have the roll mechanic which is pretty useful and you have the the slide mechanic which only works when your near a cover spot. The shooting is simple and refined. There is a multiplayer mode that is really good and original for a shooter which is one person form each team has to be defended and when he dies, the game is over. The AI is great, taking cover and moving in with caution. They are many different kinds of enemies and they each need a different approach to be taken down so it makes each battle interesting. There are new and original weapons which include the hammer of the dawn. This weapon sends down a laser beam from the sky but it takes a few seconds to trigger and can be only used outside. But overall the gameplay delivers, the surroundings are great for cover, and each battle is a great experience that shouldn't be skipped.
The graphics are good, when comparing them to other games sure they don't stretch benchmark boundaries but they are great and the physics are excellent. The blood is one of the main features in the game and it is magnificently executed through the dark colors and the way it's spilled. Also the murder cam shots using the chainsaw or head stomping are excellent by most accounts.
The sound is great, i have nothing to complain about here. Sure the accents arn't nailed perfectly and there is little talking on the battlefield but at the same time when it comes to contacting other squad members and sending out orders you can understand how the voice acting is handled with care. The enemies screaming as their blood spills out is also great to hear and head stomping and chainsaw tearing never gets old to listen to.
Yes, worth the money. Sure the single player campaign is a bit short. But your getting you money's worth through the multiplayer. The experience is great, from death matches to the assassination mode and the gory and bloody execution mode where each player is finished off with either a head stomp or a torn in pieces by the chainsaw bayonet . Just seeing all this gore play out is enough for the price.
This game will last a lot. The single player is short and there isn't much downloadable content or any mods, but the multiplayer will leave you playing this game for months and months to come. With three gory and original modes you will truly find this game addicting. This game can be played co-operatively online and with friends which is great to play after coming home from the nightclub with friends. So overall the experience is fun and will be played along with friends.
