Definitely great value.

This is a game for the more invested player.The premise and storyline are fantastic. It does start to get very complicated very quickly though. Lots of ways to customise your character and a plethora of different gadgets, guns and credits that you have no idea what to do with. Annoyingly, the DPS score for guns is flawed, so you need to look at the individual stats. Add to that the fact that it gets very hard very quickly, it would be easy to imagine people saying "s** this, I'm off to play Doom".
But that would be a shame because you don't need to stress out too much early on about what to do with everything. Just keep your gear up to date as you "loot" various backpacks and bosses. Some missions take a few runs (some quite a few runs). It becomes apparent this isn't a "spray and pray" game. You need to be in cover most, if not all, of the time, and be monitoring the minimap to keep an eye on the bad guys locations.
A lot of people berate Ubisoft. Personally I've found their games to be well maintained, long into their lifespan. They're still pushing out updates 2 years after release. They've given focus to end game content so that players can just keep on playing.
So in summary, if you like a game with a decent story, and have some time to invest in a full third-party-shooter experience, you'd do well to give this game some of your time.
