Ships Ahoy - The Expendables 2

Steam news announces that The Expendables 2 Videogame is now available, offering a gaming tie-in with the new action movie sequel. Here's word on the game's co-op action:

Four Expendables (Barney, Gunner, Caesar and Yin Yang) are hired to rescue an extremely valuable, kidnapped Chinese billionaire. Itís all business, until all hell breaks loose and the explosive mix of testosterone and kerosene detonates in a massive fireball that never lets up as the relentless action concludes where the new movie begins.

The Expendables 2 Videogame is a way for fans to experience all of their favorite explosive moments, as their favorite stars, in Four-Player Co-op action.

I tried it, (demo) and to put it plainly, it's aweful. In fact, it's one of the worst games I've played in the last 30+ years. It is the most on-rails, skill less shoot em-up Ive ever seen.
For giggles I tried one mission where I never fired a shot and beat the level because my AI partners did all the work, and the AI are as dumb as rocks.
Not only is the AI horrid, but aiming is worse than Resident Evil 5's tank aiming. Half the time you cant tell where you are aiming, and as you can only aim in 15 degree segments which someone how are always pointed at an enemy.
Add the same stupid one liners getting repeated 50 times a mission, the fact that none of your guys die. They get super healed by one of your AI guys, and while they are being healed, no shoots at the healer.

It is a pointless, lame attempt to make a few bucks off a movie franchise.

I wouldn't take/buy the full version if someone GAVE ME to the code for free.

That's how bad it is.
