Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

I absolutely love this game. But the gameplay aspects; they're horrible.
First, you get knocked down ALL THE TIME
Second, you cannot hold your weapon. It will get knocked off you when you get knocked down (all the time)
Third, you get grabbed, and you mash the buttons, escape, and rape the space button to escape. Doesn't work. I've measured, about 7 times per second IS NOT ENOUGH TO ESCAPE.
You either jump the wrong direction, even though you pressed the right button, or you fly out and immediately fly back because you're still raping the space button to get out.
Those nexus soldiers? Ridiculous. Impossible to kill. Fired entire M249 round just to kill them. Tactics? Yeah sure, use melee and bash with ranged. Tried that, took about 9 bashes to even get their tac bar down. Melee? Sure, works, if you're not getting thrown around. This is all while being fired at, being knocked down and actually losing your weapon non-stop.
Tried at hard first, that didn't work, then tried normal, that was still hell, and easy is NOT easy. You still get stuck in those face-cut zombies. You can win this game, but it's a real pain in the ass.
Checkpoints? Nope. You get revived, while being stuck, lost weapons, being fired at, seriously, why even bother breaking your fingers on the keyboard? (This only applies to ep. 1.5, the rest was cake.)
Please nerf the grabbing, the knockdown, etcetera.

The arena mode is fun, really fun. It was also a cool idea to put upgrades in, the arena is really simple but there's no need for any complexion here.
The arena mode is not perfect however. The upgrades pretty much look the same
You die once, then you start all over, and waste your time on characters that die in 1 hit, but drop down after 4 seconds, gobbling all your bullets, and, time.
Also, once you get the M249, you're pretty much done for it.
The M203 just kills your teammates, because they will spread around the entire arena, and at rare occasions, stick to one barrel and stay bugged there.

The game is also fairly laggy, and I'm pretty sure my specs aren't that bad.

I liked the game, the story, how the doctor became Jebus, the artwork was amazing, the animations were cool, the deaths were awesome, and the feeling of just flooding people with bullets and shooting their heads to pieces was absolutely awesome.
This game is surely addicting as hell, so is the entire series.

Gameplay is repetitive, fun but still very flawed.
Story is awesome.
Art is cool looking, I love it.
i3 processor, 4gb ram, GeForce GT 430 should be able to handle this perfectly with no other programs running. No viruses, google chrome, tried it in iexplore too, but it's really laggy with over 5 bodies on everything low.

Summary: 3,5.

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

It's really awesome, save for the zombie mode. Derpakiin stated you need to put a cooldown on the grab. The zombies just grab you and you die near immediately, and even if you break away they just keep grabbing you the second you get free. Other then that everything else is awesome. I like the music, the gameplay, and have spent countless hours shooting people in the brainface. (That's one word now.) Add a cooldown to the zombies grab time and it's worth 5 stars.
