I advise people looking into this game to rent it first.Its a fun game but its basically the same thing all they way through the campaign,run/shoot/aim/run/sho ot. Theres not much of a plot to it other than running and shooting.I rented this game for my 360 and after about 3 days i was pretty much bored with it, i was damn glad i rented it.
