Going by the trailer you could mistake this for a good AAA game. Seeing as it's from Microsoft Game Studios, you'd expect this game to do for 3rd person shooters, what Halo did for FPS games.

Sadly, the trailer is the best thing about this game, everything seems rushed & cheap. Even the cover art is bland. The cutscenes are good though and do a good job of storytelling, it's just the gameplay that lets it down for me.

I was excited for the squad based gameplay, and was hoping for something similar to SOCOM or the Conflict series. What we got is a poorly implemented buggy mess 

Now, I will admit I only played this for the first time last year so my opinions might be unfounded compared to more modern games, but there are many games from this era that have withstood the test of time and are still just as playable today.

I also admit I only finished 4 missions of this game because it was just so bad. I might go back to it one day, but every time I look at that detailed box art I get flashbacks!
