Great game!

I feel like its a bit behind graphically compared to other games at the time, but its controls and gameplay are great!

Best game yet

though they could have done a little better with improving thee graphis and such,, i do have to say this is still my number one action free roam super gory vigalante super power game, even if it is a xbox 360 original, i love both games, and i hope to see a third installment,, and yes people, this is a 360 game redone with some minor graphics improvements, thats why it looks old

It's a decent game, has a decent story. Controls and powers aren't bad. I wouldn't recommend buying it full price. It's more of a side game to chip out a few missions in when you take a breather from your main game.

Fun at the beggining then infuriating

The game has great mechanics and everything is fine and theres the story fine at the beggining then it gives you harder and harder things until it makes you mad. The problem is say you have to destroy some helacopters, sounds fine, but...you have constant military on your back on every single mission....there is your problem, you have to deal with constant missles,supersoldiers,armed helicopters,tank,and armed soldiers, and if thats not enough theres also gas that does alot of damage.Just remember you can take breaks and complain on how unfair it is.You also constantly get even more troops if youre spotted. Finally, if your up for the big story challenge... just think about it before you get this game.

like watching a movie in my mind.

Whether you're a villain, or a hero, this game is amazing. Its like watching a movie. Still pissed off about that their company is not making another game.

A super hero wannabe

This game gives you the dark power turn yourself into a weapon or shield. Super hero abilities like high jumping and super speed dont make you feel quite like a super hero or villian should. The graphics are on par with what was available but with a lackluster story you are left running around town just destroying things for no reason. If you are bored and need to destroy the town check out this game.
