It's time to unchain your wild side to cut, mutilate, explode, kick, and laugh at some alien asses!

Yeah the visuals of this game are impressive but that's not all you'll find:
Ok so, you find yourself as Marcus Fenix, a traitor, the kind of guy you wouldn't like to find in a dark corner, you are in jail, then you start hearing a horrible sound some sort of scream, horrible..., followed by the voice of someone that has come to rescue you, it's Dominic (DOM) Santiago, it's an old friend of marcus, at this point you choose either to fight or try taking the tutorial, your choice.
Almost all you need to know about this game can be found out in that part, starting with the insane feel of the guns to the IMPRESSIVE cover system, you fight kick some alien butt and get out of the place before you get eaten by a giant alien coming from the floor, no big deal, right?
Then you start with the main story, the game doesn't have a particularly unique storyline but it's very good nonetheless, there is no mission clearing system, there are ACTS, from ACT1 to ACT6, it's pretty short but you will like to play it again on harder settings, that I bet you.
You will find out that your main weapon (the Lancer) has a chainsaw, this is like the coolest addition I've ever seen in an action game, you gotta try it yourself, the animation of the dude getting chopped down is hilarious, but when you find yourself trying to use it too much, stop, you will get your butt kicked if you continue, 'cuz when you use it and you get shot, you have a brief but annoying time when your weapon gets up and your defense gets down, you will get plenty damage, maybe a game over screen if you aren't playing co-op.
The multiplayer is a 8vs8 match online or 1vs1 offline, it's a blast to play but here are my recommendations since it's difficult when you start:
a) Stick with your team
b) Don't use the aim mode (LT) too much 'cuz it's slow and you will get you body mutilated by a Gashner (shotgun).
c) Use Shotgun at VERY BUT VERY short range, and aim with the lancer from long range.
d) Don't forget you have smoke nade and pistol they're useful.
e) Cover and jumping are your best friends.
Ok then prepare to slash some aliens as you enter, soldier!
