Game of the Decade
18 October 2009 | by Muttley007See all my reviews

This game does not have it all. But what it does have is action, great adrenaline pumping stuff, with rare slow moments.

The story in my view is pretty OK and contains a thrilling end. I have been playing this game this whole week and was really sad when i ended it today.

Contains: loads of bloody gory scenes, buildings,choppers blowing up. Set in New York. You can fly jump from one building to another. You get to ride in tank, helicopter equipped with latest missiles. SkyJacking is another ultimate addition in this game which itself is a game changer in a battle.

If you like action and even slightly like sci fie you will dig this movie. There's not one dull scene where you wish it was over and done with. Graphics are state of the art. If you like adrenaline pumping stuff, this is for you.
