In Summary, the game surprised me, It is actually really good fun. Not really a game you would play all the time but a perfect late night binge game. The shooting is excellent while the music is one of the best parts. Co op is fun, the game actually works better in Co op. It’s a game I will continue to play. Yes you could say it’s just a next gen duck hunt without the dog, but what is so wrong with that. The story is crap, the game never really changes but the whole presentation is top notch and it is so playable.
