Woah, this game just rocks!
25 September 2009 | by h-rabbitSee all my reviews

I first played this game. I thought it was excellent, but then it got some bad reviews.

So I was hesitant at buying it. But the cool cover and all that hype just overtook me and I brought the game home and gave it a try.

Let's just say, if you like destruction, this is the game for you. Tanks, choppers, hordes of mad mutants and legions of soldiers, this game just rocks. You get to beat the crap outta your enemies, use awesome morphosis powers to change your body into weapons, and just lay waste to everyone you see.

This is the game for everyone who loves blowing stuff up.
