One of the best game so far to come out on any next generation console. Not only is single player fantastic, but multiplayer does bring a new a much needed burst of action. Guns blazin', bullets shooting past you head. Altogether and great game with a wonderful plot and excellent miltiplayer and online co-op. Read More
