He's not kidding. It ruined the story of the game completely. Also, while you're dodging missiles, wave after endless wave of enemies coming pouring down from the roof of the building to assail you. But luckily they're so horrible that killing them is only a distraction, they're definitive mooks. The only way I've beat it is co-op, with both players carrying heavy machine guns (yes, I realize how awful that is).
But other than that, it's not a terrible game. Multiplayer is great.
