Alright, so I've been playing it nonstop since I picked it up, and basically... it's bada**. The shooting mechanics are perfect, and the guns all vary so greatly. It's like Fallout (3) but with a more perfected first-person blend with the RPG genre. I wouldn't say the quality of the storyline is anywhere near that of Fallout, but the action certainly compares, and quite often wins. The presentation is probably my favorite aspect of the game. The characters and creatures are all so unique and awesome that you pretty much have to experience it first hand to understand.
Did I mention there are a LOT of guns? K, there's a LOT of guns, allowing you to fine tune your gun to your personality. I've grown attached to a certain handgun, assault rifle, and shotgun, personally. As for the missions, I can't say they're different from what you've done before, but I can this game takes what has been done and does it incredibly well. Mark my words, you'll want to keep playing once you start it, and you will have fun, you will laugh, and you will want to experience it with some friends. The split screen works well, and it, also, is really fun.
From what I've played so far, I'm 99% sure that I want to keep playing til the sun comes up; but lo and behold, college waits for no one...
