Having bought a PS3 just for this game I can safely say I wasn't let down. Infact, this is one of THE greatest FPS games EVER made. Seriously, its that good!
Ridiculously good. If you're running this through HDMI at 1080p then you're in for one hell of a treat, the visuals are unreal. The detail is extraordinary and theres wee things here and there you don't really notice, but when you do its mindblowing. The weapons are exceedingly well rendered and look gorgeous and one particular mission in the last half of the game on an ISA spaceship simply looks unreal. Never before have I seen such graphical wonder (and I have Crysis!).
Excellently done. The voice acting leaves a bit to be desired but it really doesn't detract from the awesomeness of the sound. The epic soundtrack is accompanied by some of the most intense battle sounds and effects I have experienced. If you own surround sound systems then, again, you're in for a treat. The battles are just so intense, and the guns make such loud, strong and noticeable noises and grenades/effects/screams etc are so well made you feel asif you're there on the battlefield. Simply kick ass!
Amazingly fun. CoD veterans (including myself!) will maybe struggle at first with controls, but they can be changed to a number of different types (Alternate 2 best suits CoD vets), but to be fair it works really well and you do feel like you're carrying all the kit and you're not some ninja that can swing MG's about asif they way nothing. Equal blends of action, shooting, tactical and full on kickin ass create excellent gameplay that keeps you coming back. Very well made and the cover scheme especially works very, very well for an FPS and it WILL come in handy especially during the later half of the game.
The campaign may be a bit short, waying it at about 9 levels, but these levels, especially the last few, are so amazingly intense and adrenaline fuelled that you will play the campaign again. There's also 4 difficulties, the hardest being Elite where you get no HUD and you die in a few shots only - it's not easy!!! Also, the Skirmish mode let's anyone without online to still play some 'multiplayer' matches albeit against Bots, but these work fairly well and you can play on numerous maps with many modes. Finally, the Warzone multiplayer mode lets you fight in games of 32 people with varying modes like Body Count (Team Deathmatch) to Search and Destroy games. With the Cod-like rank and perk system, unlocking classes/abilities, multiplayer is very deep and engaging, it will keep you playing for a long time after you finish Single Player.
A truly remarkable peice of work. Excellent sound effects and eye poppingly ridiculously good graphics combine for the most intense FPS experience possible, and the gameplay is fun enough to make you want to play it whilst the multiplayer modes give plenty of lasting appeal, even to those who haven't got PSN.
You MUST buy this game! *****
