As tactical shooters go, this could on been the best. Great grapics, one of the best selection of guns and gun mods around, excellent sound, Custom gear option and large maps, the fact you have to hold a button down to talk in great (stops you hearing everyones background noise at the same time as in COD4).
It's let down by the most most unatural button configuration i've ever seen on a shooter, and you can't change the main buttons...only a few. once past the learning curve of the buttons, there is no option to go first person, your always looking over your own shoulder, which personally I hate, you can see around corners without going aroung the corner (not very realistic lol), not very realistic with the weapon fire either, you can unload a whole clip on someone, then find yourself running away trying to reload(when you can find reload), which can be quite funny, at least COD4 has a Hardcore option so you can kill/die with a bit more realism.....2-6 shots depending on weapon....Not 25-35 shots!!!
All in all.....you'll have fun, Sony have added all the things COD Modern Warefare was missing....but missed out on what makes COD great, game play, physics and natural button configuration!!!
I'm not COD biased, I was hoping this would be a much better game, as I was a big fan of SOCOM on PS2, If you took the graphics, map size, communication and customisation of SOCOM and physics, button config, first-person view, perks and radar/airstrike/helecopter of COD4........That would be one hell of a game!!!
