    thought the game was going to be better, and honestly haven't really played since I got it. When I first tried it the gameplay was weak, graphics are dark and gameplay reminds me of playing the original xbox. I am going to try it again to see if it improves

    I heard that this game wasn't too good and it wasn't worth the price but it actually is a pretty good game with a good storyline. I am enjoying this game no matter what the reviews say

    The game is buggy and doesn't have good controls or graphics which make the game outdated and boring.
