Short review Not going to give a detailed review of the story or anything, since it lacked anything important, mostly just doing b-tch work for other people. I have some pretty big issues with this game, mainly with the fact that it feels like we got only half of a game. The racing multi-player was just a dumb idea, I didn't even bother touching it. The co-op was not fun at all. The multi-player could have been something like the last of us multi-player, since both games revolve around scavenging and crafting supplies. Seriously, this whole game seems to be designed around racing cars around, almost like the FPS elements were an afterthought. I would have preferred more explorable areas and missions. When you break it down, the map is incredibly small. There is no reward for exploring, mainly for the lack of anything to explore. The graphics really aren't that great compared to other 2011 games.
Gameplay: I played through the story twice, first on normal, and finished on Nightmare the second time. After those back to back playthroughs, I haven't touched it since. The first play-through offered a challenge, but it's all smoke and mirrors. The game is incredibly easy, the first play-through took me 12 hours to complete. My nightmare play-through took around 8, if my memory serves me correct. Seriously, I don't think I died once on Nightmare difficulty. The game is a joke if you can master it after one just one play-through. Compare it to Fallout 3, something I played through 4 times, and accumulated 750 hours of play time, just to master it to the point where you know every single detail about the game.
It's a unfinished product, it's fun as all hell, but not worth paying full price for.
