Reviews are a subjective thing so instead of elaborating about what's good and what's bad I'm going to base my score on 10 factors. These 10 things are what I like in a game. If you happen to have the same tastes in gaming as I do then you'll know this game is for you. Also, if what I like aren't what you like in a game then you'll know that this game isn't for you. Each check consists of 1 point max unless stated so if it gets 10/10 then this game is perfect for me.

1. Cool/Badass looking lead character. 1
(Doesn't have to be good looking. E.g. Kratos, Marcus Fenix etc)

2. Fun gameplay. 1
(Feel strong, suspense filled and action packed regardless of

3. A lot of weapons/upgradable weapons if there aren't new ones. 1

4. Graphics on par with or better than Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. 1
(Doesn't mean this is the best looking game, it's only a threshold
to compare with)

5. Over the top sound effects. 1
(I want guns to sound loud or weapon swings that sound devastating)

6. Humor. X
(Games have to be funny at times, I don't like stuff to be too

7. Light puzzle solving. 1
(Moderate ones are okay, I don't want my brain to melt)

8. Platforming in gameplay. 1

9. Reasonable gametime. 1
(>8 hours of gameplay excluding cutscenes)

10.Blood and Gore. 1
(I want melee weapons to crush, decapitate enemies and guns that blow heads off with blood splattering)

Total: 9.0/10
