Probably one of the best action shooters out there, it was crazy good in terms of how much crazy action you can do, slowmo dive, ride on carts, hang off chandelier, shoot things to make it fall on people, run on rails

And so much destructible things!

This was one of my first 360 games. I had fun.

I have this game on the PS3 collector's edition including the movie. Big fan of John Woo's gun fu and Chow Yun Fat. Too bad the PS3 version didn't have trophy support. Was hoping for a sequel, but they cancelled it and Midway went defunct.

I have the same. I remember the release of it getting delayed a few times in the early days of the PS3. It was the first game I was really hyped for. I wouldn't mind revisiting it, havING not played it since release.

I heard of this game and played the hell out of it. Should use a better headline.

Headline is not to be taken literally. The point of the series is to highlight lesser known games in general, or non-franchise games.

The better choice would be "Games you may have never heard of". The games may be lesser known but they are still known.

I remember downloading the demo thinking it would suck but man oh man was i wrong! Bought the game about a week later (had trouble finding it in stores).
