"Excellent game for those out of the Call of Duty loop"4.5 starson by jdogcnet
Pros: Golden classic pro controller brings back memories of playing N64 version with golden controller
Slow-motion kill scenes (to rescue hostages) are way cool
Gameplay reminds of N64 version but it offers a lot of new twists to standalone
Cons: Mission objectives can be unclear like at the airfield I had no idea one objective was to blow up the helicopter with the surface-to-air missiles until I completed the level and failed that objective
Summary: The game is a must have to those who played the N64 versions for hours on end. I myself along with college friends played the N64 version in the late 90's so much that we pretty much minored in the game for a year. The multiplayer split-screen was so addictive that often times we would have to take turns playing since about 7 people wanted to play with only 4 controllers. Adding online multiplayer to the mix with the new version only sweetens the pot because I can still enjoy the multiplayer version when my kids are asleep. Don't believe all the negative press. This is a darn good game. Maybe I would be more critical if I was a Call of Duty junkie. The closest I've come to playing call of duty is Quantum of Solace which I hear uses the Call of Duty engine. If you've played QofS, you will see some similarities with 007 Wii as far as the look of the game. Yet the game play is all on it's own.
