User Reviews

Great game for any system.
26 March 2002 | by (Hamilton, Ohio) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best games that I've played in a long time. I have the X Box version and love it, it has a lot of gun play in it, and lots of fast paced action. If you like this type of game, you should rent it at least if not buy it. You won't be disappointed.
