Impressive piece of work; not for everybody

Graphics = 9.5. I'm not a huge fan of that off-tint color used throughout the game, but the city design is outstanding and visuals are generally nice to look at.
Sound = 9.0. An interesting variety in the soundtrack, pretty good voice acting.
Story = 7.0. Had potential at the beginning but honestly I haven't seen it going anywhere yet. Maybe I'm just not patient enough to let this evolve.
Controls = 7.0. The driving mechanics are decent; in fact if this were just driving I'd give it an 8 or 8.5. However, I just really don't like the fighting system.
Gameplay = 6.5. This category carries the most weight by far (hence why my overall score is only 7.5).In summary, this game is just SO tedious, repetitious, and unmotivating. Again, maybe I haven't been patient enough to reach the "good stuff". But I tend to think 15 hrs is alot of gameplay and I just don't see anything that has me coming back for more. It's like, "here, go fetch another task".
I would recommend renting before buying. I was just really let down with the gameplay element, and I'm not having much fun at all with it. Guess it's back to Warhawk where I continue to have a blast, going strong at over 200 hours.
