Get Into: Rogue Trooper

Based off of a comic book of the same name, Rogue Trooper is a third person shooter that does everything in its power to be an excellent piece of science fiction. It's basically what would happen if the Civil War took place in the future, used chemical and biological weapons and the South had access to genetically enhanced soldiers. Sadly for the South, the North caught wind of their plan via a traitor, and the North destroy all but one of the super soldiers - the one having gone AWOL to look for the traitor.

It's certainly one of the more flexible shooters - you could go in John Rambo style, go in Solid Snake style while placing turrets, or use holograms as distractions. You can use the environment to your advantage by hiding behint crates and shit. This was released after Kill.Switch and Winback, which first utilized these features, but before Gears Of War overused the fuck out of them. No matter what route you choose, it's a blast to just fuck shit up. The action is intense and every moment will feel like a fun roller coaster ride, only without you puking. It's so fun that it ends before you know it - although it's only like 5 hours long, which is bullshit, but those will be some of the best 5 hours you'll ever have, gaming-wise.
