Presentation

Very well presented cut scenes.

4/5

Graphics


Amazing. Excellent character models, environments, weapons, art, and everything else.

5/5

Gameplay


Fun and intriguing. The game certainly brings you into the story much more than many other shooters/RPGs. Interactive cut scenes are great, choosing what you want to do instead of following a completely fixed storyline. Cover system works great most of the time. Different weapons classes add to the fun.

5/5

Sound

Weapons sound great, voice acting is excellent. Environment sounds are done well (i.e. wind)

5/5

Lasting Appeal

The different soldier and weapons classes make it worth playing a second time. Game length is pretty good for an RPG.

4/5

Overall

One of the better Xbox 360 exclusives of the year 2007 and one of the best RPGs i've ever played.

4.5/5
