There is soooo much hype about this game and being a die hard COD fan, I was quite eager to give it a go and see if it is as good as people say.... unfortunately I have to say i am disappointed. First, the positives.... graphically, the game is fantastic, smoke, water, fire etc all look great. Ive seen better cut scenes in the likes of COD and Killzone but I wouldnt mark it down for that. Also the choice of weapons and upgrades is great especially the various customisation options that are available.
Now the Negs,starting with the gameplay.... how people can say that this is challenging is beyond me! The AI is awful, the soliders walk into walls and get stuck or will fire at random intervals ever when they havent seen you which often means you have to rethink your strategy unecessarily!! My biggest gripe in this repsect however is the stop start nature of it through the use of the 'tactical' options! The idea of having a tactical display is great but its very poorly executed since a lot of the time you cant actually do what it says without risking being seen due to the fact that jumping/rapid movement drains your cloaking ability! Plus the markers identifying where the enemies are is so faint that you will often miss them when moving about, thus causing you to be seen and
subsequently being killed!! All in all, very annoying!
This isnt by any means a bad game, it looks great and is a lot of fun. However I just personally feel it isnt worth all the hype that it receives and doesnt have the longevity that comes with the likes of COD and Killzone.
