Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Good... But not great. NOT FOR KIDS!

I thought the game was good. It had its intense moments. You seem to be constantl out numbered and out gunned with some massive enemys. The controll scheme worked shockingly well for a PSP shooter! The multi-player is fun with a fair ammount of variety but the games main focus is its single player. The bad? The cover system is sticky, using the D pad for cerain actions is funky, especialy in a gun fight(constantly) voice acting is laughable, and while it has a good story it is very predictable. BOTTOM LINE? If you are a fan of shooters you will enjoy this. Don't expect perfection but it is one of, if not the best psp shooter to date on the PSP NOT FOR KIDS!!!!!!!
