Killing gigantic bugs is a hoot.

…wherein lies the problem. The game does not take long to complete at all. One good blast and you’ve pretty much played all the game is worth.
But let’s focus on what you will be doing during those 6-7 hours- killing stacks and stacks of bugs, and oh what fun that is. You’ll get those small flying ones that swarm towards you in clumps, and then you also get those tall praying mantis type things that try and stab you with their arms as well as those gigantic pill-bug things that roll up walls and around the ceiling and then there is that huge-ass worm that tries to eat you. It’s all pretty insane and its every bit as exciting eviscerating every last one of them, and doing so with what the game calls a VS (large, mechanic mechwarrior-type contraption) of which there are about 5 different varieties, just adds to that excitement.
What helps keep this action appealing is the technical flair the game seems to deliver in the graphics department. Everything looks bloody fantastic.
Having said all that, this is an action game and that is essentially what you’re paying $69 for. Don’t expect any deviation from shooting things and most certainly do NOT expect a brilliant plot for none of which you shall receive.
It’s a good game. Not bad…not bad at all. But you may not want to waste your money on something that will end in a matter of few hours. But I heartily recommend that you play this game, so rent it.
