Overall: This game is a joke, come on people, there is no way this is a 5.0. I played it for a couple hours and was so bored that I wanted to break the disc in half. So I figured the deathmatch might be good...wrong. the mechs are so !&%$@#* slow that its pointless to try to avoid someones fire, so you end up standing their shooting at your friend hoping that he blows up what fun. Or if your really smart you can just go stand on the healing pad and shoot at people so you cant die. the best part of this game was that I was laughing so hard while playing because it sucked so bad...
Gameplay: Like I said you have a slow mech with 2-3 wepons(which are nothing special) and you walk around and shoot stuff, or guard stuff. Wow. But wait you can fly too, for about a minute before you have to land and dumb is that
Graphics: Good visuals during gameplay, nice environments but you dont really get to explore them because you are guarding a building or convoy the whole freaking time. Enemies look like little boxes(tanks) or little ants(men). The flying enemies are even worse. The animated story line looks like a N64 game
Sound: Booring........who cares what it sounds like when the game sucks....boom, bang, splash, die...weak weak weak
Suggestions: Stop selling this turd of a game, make the missions more interesting,make the mech faster and able to fly without recharging...oh and this super advanced mech that is supposed to save the world isnt waterproof??? Thats die if in the water...whos idea was that one

Overall: I don't understand why everyone likes this game. I read several reviews before renting it and everyone was raving about it. It turned out to be a major let down on every feature that was boasted.
Gameplay: You run around in this spider mech/jet shooting enemies. Aparently you are supposed to get 40 some missions of this. However, many of the missions are the exact same mission with a slightly different challenge. Battles are massive but in the end its just eye candy. You can't deviate from your objective to explore the battlefield for more than a minute or so or you will lose the mission.
Graphics: Battles are huge and they look cool but that is about it. Models are mediocre, and the cutscenes look like crap.
Sound: No complaints as far as sound effects go. The voice acting i found slightly annoying. Overall nothing to rave about.
Suggestions: There isn't really that much freedom given to the player. A wider variety in weapons and customization would have been great.

Overall: .it is a pritty good game.I think it is a lot like Halo.I mean it is along the same lines as Halo.
Gameplay: The game play was a lot like Halo,except you are fighting people,under different scenarios,and different resons.
Graphics: The visual effects were awsome.The explosions were fantastic.I was overwelmed at the massiveness of the battlefields.
Sound: The sounds were cool.I often went back in the game to make sure I was not hearing things in the game.

Overall: This game is awesome! I can't believe i didn't find out about it sooner or I would've already bought it! Wow! If you like big battles, like the one at the end of 'Two Betrayals' in Halo(on Legendary), then you will love this game. Total choas.
Gameplay: It only takes a few minutes to get used to the controls, and are relatively easy to change. Being able to change from air-to-ground is awesome! The battles are HUGE! 43 FRICKIN MISSIONS!!!
Graphics: The graphics are really slick, but may if you think they look too cartoony, then what the hell is halo? I promise, during the heat of battle(which happens regularly) you won't even be paying attnetion. The detail of the little foot soldiers running around on the ground is sweet!
Sound: The music is kinda boring, but the sound effects are great, and super-realistic. I was convinced I was in a gigantic battle, which I was in most missions, because of all the explosions and blasting that was booming out of my TV.
Suggestions: This game is awesome guys! Atari did great!
