5 out of 5 eggsIt's cheep now. Great action...

Pros: um...it's fun,lot's of action..voice acting. um....envoritments...finishing kills. Cheep.

Cons: Multiplayer..(would be fun, but almost NO servers)

Other Thoughts: This is a action game based on the 1976(idk for sure) film by John Wo "Hard boiled" (great movie by the way) this game picks up on the jumping-in-action that the movie has. the story line in the game is OK but nothin amazing. graphics are very nice. there's almost NO swearing in the game, which makes it good for the younger players. great game. worth buying.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat game, lots of action

Pros: Graphics,action,sounds,multiplayer(more ppl online nowdays cause the game price went down)Great replay value.

Cons: Kinda short singleplayer, took me just over 6hrs to finish.

Other Thoughts: OK, this game has amazing graphics. I've played alot of games, and not seen to many that have better graphics then this. (it came out in the end of 06) multiplayer is starting to pick up cause the game is only ten bucks now. This is a game that has a nice storyline,action,graphics,sound. you should buy it, it's only $10.00

3 out of 5 eggsNot a bad shooter

Pros: Quick pick Up
Cool slo-mo time
Innovative kills

Cons: Repetitive
Cheap deaths

Other Thoughts: Not a bad shooter/action in the mold of Max payne. You can do a combo kill off almost anything in the game, my personal fave is the rolling gurney kill. A good buy for John Woo fans, and at 10 bucks you cant help but get your money's worth.

3 out of 5 eggsWorth a shot.

Pros: Mindless action, cool slow motion system, decent gameplay. For only 10 bucks it's a good deal; it'll get you through a rainy day or two anyway.

Cons: A map of some kind would have been nice, preferably a mini map, but most of the levels are either linear or in a large room, so theres no real need for directions most of the time. The glow that indicates environmental items that can be used is misleading sometimes; I spent several rounds of ammo firing at things that I thought I could break, only to realize the glow was indicating something other than what I was shooting at.

My biggest problem with the game was that it glitched a few times; in one particular boss fight, the statues crumbling actually lagged the system, and the end boss disappeared after a cut scene one time, causing me to have to restart from the checkpoint.

Other Thoughts: A multiplayer mode would have given this game some replay value; as it is, I'll be happy to keep my D+ rating after beating the game in less than 24 hours of owning it. It's a fun game that I'll remember and don't regret buying, but it won't hurt my feelings much when my little brother scratches or loses it.

4 out of 5 eggsfun

Pros: Fun, Simple, good action and the HAVOK system works awesome in this title.

Cons: Simple, not a whole lot of extras in the game, but that's also one of the good things. For 10 bucks you can't go wrong

1 out of 5 eggsdon't be tempted by the low price

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Where to begin?

-no subtitle/caption option makes understanding the accented dialogue hard
-this in turn makes one care less and less about the story/characters
-no map or radar makes running around some of the stages frustrating
-extremely low quality graphics, even for a first gen PS3 game
-weird audio glitches that causes the sound to get raspy and only exiting and restarting the game will fix it (I'm on an originial 60GB PS3)
-same enemies throughout the whole game, even the bosses are just guys with guns (other than one helicopter boss).

I read all the reviews and thought, for ten bucks, you can't lose. I had played the demo before and didn't think much of it, but it was so cheap. Ran through this and finished it in a week only because I felt I had to since I plopped money for it. Now I'm gonna try to sell it or trade it in for whatever I can to get this thing out of my PS3 library.

4 out of 5 eggsLike an action movie

Pros: It's John Woo and Chow Yun Fat and any action fan knows what that means. Lot's of mindless fun to blow things up. Slow motion stuff is pretty cool. Sometimes you are really impressed on how you destroyed everything and everyone in a room while running and shooting in slow-mo.

Cons: Zero replay value and pretty short.

Other Thoughts: Downloaded the demo way back and like the game, but did not want to spend $60 on it. Certainly worth $9.99 and is very fun on the first play through.
