I had great expectations for this game. I had read a lot in magazines telling me this game was a must buy. So, I bought it.
I was amazed at the level of detail in the game-play of this game. One of the better, more realistic games on the market for the time. The game-play was very quick and smooth on the xbox, doesn't take too long to load between missions.
The main problem I had with this game was that I spent majority of the day playing this thinking there was still a lot left in the tank in terms of game play. Until suddenly after around 5 hours, the game was completed. This was a major disappointment as I was expecting to play for at least 10 hours worth of gaming.
This is still a good game but don't expect to be on it for a long time
When I first heard that this game was coming out i wasn't to interested in it I saw it as just another FPS claiming to be able to bring down COD and will ultimately be unable to deliver, but with all my friends shouting at me to get it i decided what the hay and added to my pre-order list.
when the game came through my letter box i was not really looking forward to playing it but I did and I can say with conifdence that it was a simple and budgeted game, going by that I knew it wouldn't be able to bring down the monstrous COD franchise. the campaign was to short and extremely easy to do and the online was simple and overpowered by the one hit kill sniper, which meant that each game I would have over 20 kills and 0-3 deaths. needless to say i was not amused when i had got all the achivments and compleatly leveled each online persona (sniper, rife, machine gun classes) within a week.
I traded the game in after that because of the larger title's releasing the next month.
But that was not the end of this story as recently my friends once again convinced me to by this game and although the campaign is exactly the same. the online has been made a lot better mainly because people have gotten better and that everyone has realized that the sniper will always win. and with the devamping that many COD players got with black ops this game has gain some real support due to it accepting ex-cod players into the circle.
even I who disliked the game at first am now convinced that although it is a budgeted game with a lot of hype behind it, it is good not quite a francise killer but good none the less.
I would reccommend this game to any FPS players and would recommend them to not see this game as a A* ranked game but instead an A or B rating and you will most likely enjoy this game.
