I am constantly changing my opinion on this game...and right now i think i've made my decision....it's good...but it could have been great.
Firstly, this is a thinking mans COD. If your buying it believing its going to be the same then your going to be bitterly disapointed. You have to be patient, you have to be clever and you have to be ready to die a large amount of times...me personally, i love being tactical and planning my attack and this game is great for it. Like many people have said, its basically one hit and your dead and to me, this makes it intense and thrilling. Great array of weapons, vehichles and commands, great sound affects, great enemy AI and true to life missions. The graphics will not blow you away but it does look awesome when your up high and can view basically the whole map.
Now on to its problems. This is possibly my biggest quarm...it literally throws you in the deep end. There is no training and minimal tutorial and to me, this takes away some of the reality of the game...your meant to be a highly trained soilder....instead you get dropped on a island knowing you have to press x at an ammo box. Your teams AI can also be questionable at times, they dont always follow orders, walk of aimlessly and have a tendency to only look forward and not look at the enemy who is firing at him from behind. I also havent been able to get on the MP since its release. Im hoping a lot of these problems will be fixed with a patch.
All in all, this could have been one of the games of 2009 yet it feels as though it was rushed. However, for anyone who enjoys the tactical side of war and has a great deal of patience then this is your game and i highly recommend.
