So letís talk about the menu system really quick. First off, youíll have your standard single player, multiplayer and continue options. Okay, thatís a given and easy to navigate. Once you pull up the single player game youíll quickly start to get lost when looking for information like the leaderboards, achievements, etc. As I played through the levels I truly had no idea where to find the leaderboards and accidentally stumbled across the button at the bottom of the level selection screen. Why in the heck do you have to turn the leaderboards on? This was a stupid idea. That information should be displayed prominently on the screen as you scroll through each level without effort. It was that way in the last console version so why change it?
The menu system is just atrocious in many respects outside of the leaderboard debacle but thatís only one of the issues this game faces. The game seems as though it was thrown together for the consoles. You will quickly notice that the sound is choppy and it almost seems as though your speakers are crackling and breaking up. No worries, itís not your speakers at all. How can this game sound this terrible? I am wondering what QA team thought that this was okay. And while the game looks pretty good overall it surprised me that trying to get precise aiming was a bit of a task. The controls seemed to be a little clunky or non-responsive at times.
