So true, such an under-appreciated game, hard as hell in parts too.

yeah was a good game, i didnt expect much for the 15 bucks preorder price, but was a SOLID co-op game, loved it.

will definatly buy part 2 for sure.

if you havnt played it, think of it as Left 4 dead, but your robbers and a shheeeet load of cops (not zombies) haha
