    Awsome shooter for the profanity inclined!!!

    Rated on July 06, 2007 by Nazzdreg

    I really liked the game. Shooters are always fun. I was amazed at the gameplay. Granted when it came out it was top notch. Now it's kinda cartoony compared to what is out now. But I was happy with the...

    MY favourite multiplayer game of all time. I wish they would make a sequel.

    Rated on September 18, 2008 by xe-cute
