    There's a free demo on XBL for it.
    I really don't like the game.

    I was hoping because of all the powers you can have, it would be a fun FPS with a lot of different things you can do. Well, I was half right...there's a lot of different things you can do. Wasn't fun to me though.

    Free demo...can't beat that. Definitely try the demo first and play through the tutorial.

    I believe it's a multiplayer only shooter - keep that in mind, especially if you're not going to pay for Xbox Live Gold because then you'd be tethered to local/splitscreen play only.

    I think there's much better shooters out there for the money, including Bioshock which comes out the 17th I believe.

    You'd have to put me in the "Oh I wished it would have been a RPG/Adventure game like the SNES one". That game was excellent and had an very interesting narrative.

    I haven't tried the 360 demo yet because I have reverted to a silver membership for a while.

    You can still download the demo and go through the tutorial without Live Gold...if you want to. ;)

    Try it...again though, I wasn't interested in it. Actually, what happened was I went through the tutorial to learn the powers/moves, then at the end of learning all of it, a botmatch is started for practice. I got pwned by the ai (because they kept warping all over the place when I'd shoot at them), so I quit the demo and deleted it off my hd. :p
