11 August 2007 | by paintbait-imdbSee all my reviews

If you haven't played the demo yet, play it! This game is my new replacement for "Max Payne" on my game shelf --at least when it comes out. The action is, to sum up in one word, 'Epic'. You can play the demo twenty times and still find a new way to defeat the swathes of baddies, utilizing 'Tequila Bombs' To Heal yourself, make crack shots, fire really fast for a short burst of time without worrying about conserving ammo --not that you need to in the first place-- or instantly (in a epic mini-scene) kill everyone in the area.

The game looks gorgeous, the controls are easy and the game delivers on it's boasted 'Cinematic Gun Battles', they are immensely fun and Cinematic doesn't begin to describe the experience.

This has to be one of the more anticipated Console releases for this fall.
