The Bad: Heinous vehicle controls, never-miss-Enemies, some poor platforming sequences, useless weapons, poor hit-detection, difficult-to-follow-story
Well, EftE truly isn't the best in it's class. But it will keep the shooter fanatic entertained for a while. The graphics are nice and everything looks fairly detailed. The soundeffects get their job done, but the music's noteworthy. - In a bad way of course. What I mean is: The firefights as well as the levels, are accompanied by some extremely cheesy composed techno tracks. Which simply don't fit in my opinion.
Now for the controls. To get it straight: They don't feel right. No matter if you're on-foot or in a vehicle. Driving simply sucks in this game, and it takes some time to get into. The first time you get your hands on a driving wheel, you will think that they're trying to kid you. No matter what you intend to do, the vehicle doesn't respond correctly. Even things like driving forward are easier said than done. This thing moves like a 240 ton caterpillar. You'll know what I mean when you get to your first driving mission...
The on-foot controls are much better, but still far from perfect. Things like platforming are sometimes more of a challenge than struggling foes.
Speaking of foes, they will give you quite a good fight. But not due to their AI, which is pretty stupid. When they shoot at you, they WILL hit you. No matter if you're behind cover, or facing them directly. Busted design choice if you're asking me. Your weapons are also something to get into. You got to choose from: Hatchet, Pistol, Auto-Shotgun, Assault Rifle, Dual Submachine Guns, Rocket Launcher, Sniper Rifle, Remote mines and Hand Grenades. You'll be going best with the Assault Rifle (which has an underbarrel grenade launcher) / Hand Grenades combo. The Shotgun and the Remote Mines are also pretty useful. Forget about the other weapons. They are useless.
There's plenty of fun to be had here. If you're a shooter hound like me, or just got some money to waste, I recommend this fragger. But everyone else go play Crysis Warhead instead.
