I refused to play the beta and would not watch any Youtube Videos or Twitch Streams as I fear it would give me a false perspective.
Getting into the Campaign had to be the best part of the game. Between the Gore, Graphics and Gameplay, It was the sound track for the game that really did it for me. Metal and Hardcore game play added awesomeness. To be honest, I though the game really was badass, Something I could definitely pick up again and again. Would I recommend? I would Fuck yeah!
If you have not played this game, either get a copy or ask a friend who has it. You wont be disappointed!
Oh there is a Multiplayer as well! Enjoy!
