When this game was shown on the PC many months ago, I was dying to play it. I heard that it was a revolutionary new shooter which brought the genre back to life. However, it required such a powerful PC, and I wasnt about to throw away over 1,000 bucks just to play one game. So I waited, and now here it is, on the Xbox 360, even better than before. I did not get a chance to compare the PC and the 360 versions, but I will say this, It definitly deserves higher than an 8.6. The graphics are as good as Perfect Dark Zero, and COD 2, and better than Dead Rising. Its definitly less glitchy than Oblivion. Every detail is crisp, clear and jaw-dropping. Muzzle flashes and shadows are all excellent and there were no graphical glitches watsoever for me, which is rare with next-gen games. The sound is thunderous and perfectly placed to each weapon, and you never get sick of hearing your shotgun roar in reflex mode. Voice acting is superb as well. The controls are NOT confusing at all, unlike what you may think from the video review. I memorized the controls in about 20-30 minutes and had no trouble after. Each function is placed perfectly on the controller and you WILL be able to react quickly in combat. Now for the story, it is brilliant and well thought out, but is not very scary, and pretty confusing. The game can be very sadistic at times which makes it all the more entertaining. Basically it mixes Max Payne gameplay into the chemistry perfectly. There are many weapons to choose from and 4 different difficulties to choose from (you will oblviously want to do it on easy the first time through, just right for beginners). Overall this game is one of the top shooters on the 360 and it was ported really really well. If you like action-packed and creepy games, its all in this one.
