Without Warning

Well where do you start with this one. Two of Core's top guys leave the company to make their own games and this is the debut effort which is a real shame. What we've got is a heap of good ideas that never really seem to come together. Let's pretend that we are making a cake called Without Warning. Grab one: 

Chemical Factory

Terrorists

Hostages 

Mix well and then add an unwillingness to accede to demands and the likelihood of many people dying  

Bake in a damn hurry then release to an unsatisfied public.

Get it? No?

That's fine, I don't either.

Well I do and will break it down for you.

The baddies have taken a chemical factory by storm and all looks pretty dim. There is a limited period of  time that the good guys have to fix it all up and this folks, better listen up now, is the one cool thing that they've brought into the game is that the title tries to tell the story through a multitude of different people. It's a neat idea but does not come together in a satisfying manner. There are simply too many crap factors coming into play that detriment the overall gaming experience. They are: 

Enemies bulletproof heads (yes you can shoot but they dont fall)

You can predict when and where baddies are going to show up (truly!) 

The game looks good which is distracting when you think you are in for a good game and then the actual game lets you down. This title is a renter I would say. There is very rarely a time that I say don't buy, but I would really want to warn you that this game might even be considered a waste of rental money. Definitely rent first, you just might thank me!
