2 out of 5 eggsPretty bad, all-in-all

Pros: Hard to say, really.

Cons: Played only about two levels, got tired of it. Went back to give it another try about one month later; nope, still not very much fun. Ditto a month after that. Walk in a straight line, shoot the bad guys who pop up. This game's concept is so poor that the old game Elevator Action was/is more fun. Please, save your money!

5 out of 5 eggsMindless Shooting at it's Best

Pros: Beautiful graphics, Gun play at it's best, Destructible environments, Soundtrack well done, Tequila time, zoom, bombs etc. are fun to execute

Cons: Very linear, Strictly mission to mission, Arcade type of game play, Short for 12+ gigs, Tequila effects (above) get old, Online is a ghost town

Other Thoughts: This is mindless arcade shooting at it's best. There are plenty of enemies & nearly everything on screen can be destroyed. The graphics are beautiful & the music tracks are nice. This is stress relief. Forget about squads, blind fire, or anything tactical, there is one tactic, kill everyone that moves (except the jazz band). Tequila effects are fun to experiment with, but get old once ideas run out on how to abuse them. It is John Woo over the top & a must for Hardboiled Fans. It would be nice if a few people played it online, but with all of the 4th quarter heavy hitters coming out, it is unlikely that multi-player will have any chance.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's OK

Pros: Decent graphics, good mission objectives & storyline

Cons: Like someone mentioned before, very linear game play. If you like to roam around and explore this isn't the game for you. I also wish there were more video options other than just resolution and shaders. Also I have yet to see one person create a match online.

Other Thoughts: If you liked the movie you will like the game. Lots of action and destruction. I give it a 4 only because of the amount of destruction you can do to each battle area.

3 out of 5 eggsAlright, I guess.

Pros: Graphics are good, weapons are cool.

Cons: Playability is ho-hum at best. Character is hard to control, and basically you go around shooting dozens of bad guys. Completely linear movement, and environment is not fully interactive.

Other Thoughts: Save your money.

5 out of 5 eggsJohn Woo Rocks

Pros: This game is amazing! It is like playing a real life action film. When playing you can really see John Woo's artistic directing style come through in the gameplay, which is definitely a good thing. Speaking of the gameplay, the control is very tight and dead on. The graphics are insane and I experienced no slowdown on my system. Running 2 gigs of memory, C2D E6420 and an MSI 8600 GTS.

Cons: I would have liked to have seen more options for adjusting the graphics properties. However, the "auto-selection" system (I'll call it) does a perfect job and you shouldn't be disapointed.

Other Thoughts: This is a fine example of what next generation games are going to be like. If other directors make games half as good as this, the gaming world is in for a treat.
