Well it could be good...
8 September 2013 | by BherleSee all my reviews

I'm sure it's great if you are a hardcore gamer, but my wife and I played for 5 hours on rookie and couldn't get through a single mission. We aren't pro gamers but definitely aren't noobs either. When I play a game I play it to enjoy it, not to make me want to throw my controller through my TV. I play most games on normal or hard without a problem. Splinter cel conviction we played a lot on hard, and found it to be a lot of fun, and barely ever failed a mission. Gears of war I play on hard, halo, tons of shooters. The AI actually quite stupid on rookie, but that doesn't change the fact that taking out 6 heavily armed mercs with a wimpy gun that takes 10 straight head shots to kill and having no place to sneak behind them is a rather difficult task. Don't get me wrong, some parts of the game are so retardedly easy I could nearly play it blindfolded, but that doesn't really compensate properly. Thank goodness I bought at Costco so I can return this no fun game.
