Buy ONLY for single player or co-op. (MP is dead, try BL:Retribution)
There are 4 missions. 4 difficulty levels. You can also rank up (earn xp) which unlocks new weapon parts to use for your customizable loadouts.

I enjoyed this game. It's an FPS with a nice dystopian setting that has single player missions vs BL:Retribution which is all MP (but also free). Controls are tight (you can edit .ini to enable HOLD TO AIM). Graphics and sound are good. AI is ok. Kind of unrealistic (seems like they react too fast?) but overall you can find enjoyment with this if your looking for a simple FPS with this type of near future dystopian setting and military styled weapons. It's a professional release that runs better than the indie-shovelware you'll find at same price. Just don't expect a lot of content. Like I said: 4 levels. About 15-30+ mins to complete each (depending on how good you are and your difficulty setting) $0.99 is totally worth it for a short SP campaign.

Games for Windows Live (Win8) isn't compatible with Windows 10, so the game won't even try to start. Multiplayer has been abandoned, so if you can get this running on another OS, you'll be playing with yourself.

While I do think the game is nowhere near some other shooters it has some things to like about it. I like the KILLZONE looking bad guys and the swarm of guys I faced when I got to the second stage of the first map which you can play single player. I think the loadouts are a little confusing but I am not one of the smartest guys when it comes to gaming and learning everything so this likely won't be a problem for others. I just wish instead of it saying loadout for sniper, assault or whatever and so on it would just let you name it on your own. As for menu music this is good. Also in regards to the dialogue I heard in the game it was adequate. Another thing I liked with the game was the little simple puzzles to open/unlock/use things. I would like to see this in other games. Now for graphics well while they are dated they didn't make my eyes bleed. Heck there are many newer games out there that in certain ways are uglier than this ... No Man's Sky ... ahem .... puke. So now as for the negatives I don't know if we can even coop anymore. As for multiplayer who knows either as GFWL is done. The thing is though I was able to get into GFWL no problem and this game showed the ability to get multiplayer and coop games going so if anyone wants to try sometime let me know.

I will say this review is incomplete as I want to further investigate certain things and get farther with the single player stuff but I have to say the game is worth playing but no way do you want to pay a pretty price for this. I think if you love shooters and you want them all if this is $4.99 or less then it is worth it.

Figured why not, Its a buck, and I wanted to see just how bad it was.

Mostly MP with a sort of bot assault mode that can be played single player.

It was hard to get a game going even when the game was newer, and it's completely empty now.

Also has GFWL, which will be shut down soon.

Another dead MP game from which to STAY AWAY.

This game should not be sold any longer. It REQUIRES GFWL to do ANYTHING which no longer exists.. So.. no multiplayer, no co-op.. no single player.. nothing. Go buy some candy with your dollar instead, because you'll get no use with it here.

I really wish the review feature was available back when this was available. Got this for 14 dollars, No one played it. That was almost a year or two ago... I am sad.

Worst FPS I have ever played. There was no one to play multiplayer with and the single player was extreamly boring and straight forward. Not to mention Windows Live. I would not download this game ever again and I recommend you don't too.

Cant even play this, live went down and this was only a multiplayer game... not worth a dollar.

This honestly needs to be taken down from steam, there is no reason why this should still be up.

I brought it... I installed it.... I played it with a friend... and then I removed it.

It is alright to play it really is. You play with a friend, you run and gun and there is the fun but that is it. £3.99... More like £1 and worth it below but not above and I paid full preorder price so it is a major let down.

This offers nothing new on the FPS market, but a simple run gun game built on source... I am not sure if the game is but it really really does feel like a source engine game like counter strike.

Everything about the game is okay, nothing special.
