If you were stuck on a desert island and could only choose ONE game … Meh, you know the rest. Honestly, the best way to review this game is to throw down a few adjectives and then flesh them out a little. BEAUTIFUL: the graphics and visuals are absolutely stunning. Bright colours (if Gears Of War was the movie Seven, this would be Kick Ass), fine detail on everything, from the ground at your feet to the enemies you're about to spill the innards of on the ground at your feet, set pieces that will honestly make you gasp – massive mountains peaks towering above with deep deep valleys impossibly far below, and you up to your behind in trouble somewhere in between. RELENTLESS: Like the ad on TV, ‘no boring bits’. Forget moody introspection. Forget noir-ish, arty-farty excesses. This game starts hard and heavy, and doesn't let up. Enemies, bullets, rocks (whole mountains sometimes) etc come at you without stopping. And don't get me started on multiplayer! Talk about intense! It's wave after wave of utter mayhem. UNSUBTLE: You've got those silly drawn out, flawlessly choreographed lovemaking scenes in movies, right? And then you have the elbow-in-the-rib ‘Oi … You awake?’ method. This game is the latter, through and through (actually, according to my mum, my dad invented that method. But I digress … ). Language that will make your nana have a cardiac event (so, don't let her PLAY it, right??), graphic violence that will make you feel like having a shower after viewing it, and the concept of Sensitive New Age Guy? Not been invented in this world. CLOSING REMARKS: This game is like a hybrid of Gears Of War and the old Duke Nukem 3D; GOW's hyper machismo expressed in over-the-top man-mountains with huge weapons killing nasty looking evil monsters, and the goofy, cartoony, exhilarating silliness that made DN3D so much fun to play over and over again. I've given this a perfect score, and would really struggle to believe anyone could NOT like this game a whole heap. It's so good that not only will you be glad you spent money on it, you'll wish you'd paid twice the price. (Ok, that's just stupid, but you get what I mean). BUY EEETTT!!!
