i highly recommend it for any novice shooter out there! the tutorial in the very beginning gives you the oppertunity to learn the MANY different options you have in battle and in your environment as oppossed to trying to figure it out in the middle of your first battle. you can also swap weapons with your partner, praise them, or let them know theyre a fucking idiot.

the weapons are pretty freakin awesome too. i dont know too much about guns, but you have 3 types, primary (usually a assult rifle or shot gun), secondary (a hand gun), and a specialty (sniper or machine gun). you earn money for completeing objectives and can buy new or upgrade what you have. even the most basic gun can be customized to be pretty freakin sweet! theres also an option to "pimp" your weapons, which makes them gold or platnium, but ups your aggro.

next point! this is a VERY co-op game! you have to work together! on the right side of your screen theres an "aggro meter" the fuller your meter, the more the enemy notices you, but the more transparent your partner becomes which makes for good sniping or flanking. theres also things you need to do together like, co-op sniping or step jumps, one boosts the other onto a ledge and pulls the "booster" up.

the last misc points i really liked was assisting your partner. if your partner goes down, you can run to them and drag them to cover to heal them or, you can feign death if your gettin ready to get the crap shot outta you. both are very helpful!

to every posi there is a negitive. one thing i dislike is the lack of obtainable achievements. i LOVE seeing that little icon at the bottom of my screen letting me know i'm kicking ass and taking names. in GoW i got tons of ego boosts! some of them were simple and others i REALLY earned! but in this one, i have to kill 10, 000 guys with a sniper rifle or complete all campaigns in pro, or buy every single weapon. those are great for the SERIOUS pros, but what about those who are just starting? can you tell i'm an achievement farmer yet? hehe. josh doesnt like how it seems theres an endless stream of enemies. he gets restless and runs into battle instead of laying low and working as a team and i end up running to his rescue. i dont really mind that too much. and because hes so aggro all the time, it gives me time to snipe 'em all. ;)
