What happens when humans gain access to powerful alien technology they were never meant to have? When a volatile energy source called "Fuse" falls into the wrong hands, the CIA calls in an elite contact team to retrieve it: Overstrike 9.
Join up to three friends in team-based co-op play as you take down the rogue paramilitary corporation behind the theft. Use lethal teamwork, coordinate devastating attacks, and provide cover for one another with fringe-tech weapons and gadgets. The unique LEAP feature lets you instantly shift from agent to agent during combat, allowing you to take advantage of each one's special arsenal. You'll need your teammates and their firepower to stop a global arms race from spinning out of control.
Lethal Teamwork Coordinate and combine abilities for extraordinary results in this frenetic four-player tactical co-op. Work together as you take down enemies, upgrade weapons, and unlock abilities faster through the Fuse-based progression system.
Secret Alien Tech The volatile alien energy source known as Fuse can transform natural earth-based materials in potent and catastrophic ways. Whoever controls it will have unlimited power at their disposal.
Experimental Weapons Overstrike 9 agents each wield upgradeable Fuse-powered weapons – combine them to trigger Fusion for greatly increased damage.
Class-Based Operatives Use the unique LEAP feature to alternate among agents during combat and take full advantage of their distinct weapons and abilities. Discover all the possibilities for unique gameplay along a deep upgrade path as you play. Be the unstoppable Dalton Brooks, stealth master Naya Deveraux, expert sniper Jacob Kimble, or powerful healer Isabelle Sinclair.
Pros: If you're looking for a gripping story line in a carefully scripted single player campaign then go buy Tomb Raider, this game is not that. This game is just pure fun. Grab a couple friends or play over Xbox live and slay nearly countless enemies with 4 distinctly different play styles. This game doesn't try or pretend to be everything at once, but what it does try (and succeed) to be is a fun multiplayer game that you can enjoy with 1-3 friends for good times hours on end. I bought this game with the sole intention of playing it with my 2 other roommates for some laughs and good times and it has delivered on that idea flawlessly.
Cons: My only complaint about this game is the lack of levels (6 in the multiplayer 'wave' mode) / weapons...but even that doesn't warrant knocking an egg off in my mind. I just hope Insomniac releases some DLC or an expansion/sequel that adds a fifth character for a new play style and some new secondary guns. But again, this is mainly just because I've already played through the wave levels multiple times.
Other Thoughts: In the wave mode you will never face the same waves in the same order, which keeps some novelty to the game. Once you play it enough you know how to approach each situation, but this randomization ups the replay value substantially.
