Likewise, the online aspect feels pretty familiar, except for one neat feature. Along with the standard deathmatch and capture-the-flag style options, we get Predator, an awesome multiplayer mode that pits one player and his full complement of feral abilities against a bunch of armed-to-the-teeth mercenaries.
Okay, two neat features: let's not forget the robust level editor you can use to create and share your own custom battlegrounds over Xbox Live.
In the crappy wine and wilted roses category, the game looks gorgeous in most ways, and then really ugly in some others. It's tough to explain, but a fair bit of pop up and weird terrain transitions whenever the camera pans around a new area can sap some of the "wow" from the battlegrounds. The way dead enemies' bodies fall to the ground looks downright silly at times, too - namely, sometimes the corpses won’t even fall over. Explosions, on the other hand, look absolutely spectacular.
