Man, why is Toys R Us trying so hard to give FEAR 3 away? lol, the game just came out.
Because every 3rd game released this generation is a shooter. The trend is so sad. Unless you are Halo, Gears, COD, Uncharted, you aren't going to make much money on your more of the same game. There are couple unique shooters, like Vanquish which IS worth getting.
Forget the reviews, Mr Mikami made a great shooter in vanquish. It has that old school frantic arcade action and it has fast paced gameplay ( well except chapter 4 where the game slows down but it picks up again after that ) the jet pack in more open areas and against bosses is a blast to use. Story sucks but you play this game for the frantic action anyway. The only things I hated are that standard melee attacks overheated your suit to quickly and I wish it was a little longer ( took me five hours to beat it on first playthrough )and there's boss recycling like in bayonetta but other then that I gaurintee you will enjoy it. hope this post helps
Don't forget the meat of the game comes after the story mode is completed in mission mode. That is a true testament of your skills. The story mode is a cakewalk compares to those missions.
