I remember my brother bought this back when it came out, we played split-screen co-op a bit, and as far as we got into the "story" was beating the first boss. I played it very few times after that, we both thought the game was boring. I'm not sure if it's entirely to do with the fact the game has little story, but as far as I've played on and off, the environments were just barren wasteland after barren wasteland.
Would there be a point in the game where I hit an interesting setting set up? I guess whatever I've seen so far, which is about an hour or three worth of the game, I just didn't see a lot to motivate me to go further. By the way, can I choose any character I want and get the same results for them all? I kind of just want to do whatever I want, 'cause I know they all have their specs. I want to be Brick, but I don't want to be him if the system's strict. Hopefully you know what I mean by the latter question.
I have no problem playing this game on my own, so just keep that in mind, 'cause recommending that I get someone to play it with isn't necessary for me to have a good time.
