"Wow...Just Wow!"4.5 starson by kinggorman
Pros: Gameplay, addictiveness, graphics, surround sound accuracy, story line.
Cons: Short length of single player campaign, 15 year old kids destroy me in multi-player :)
Summary: This game is amazing, everything I thought it would be. It makes COD3 look amateur. If you like FPS, get it. My roommate is addicted to watching me play, he sits on the edge of his seat like it's an epic movie while I navigate through task after task...especially when you are an SAS with the brush on crawling through a field within inches of tanks and troops armed to the teeth.
The great thing about this game is that, unlike a lot of other FPS, just going balls out and being a hero is sometimes the worst thing you can do. It takes more skill to sneak by than to shoot through. It's much more of a challenge. Also, the achievement points for twisting a dog's neck are hilarious.
The scenery and details are spectacular, almost breathtaking. The details of the snow-capped mountains in the background while you take down the powerlines with explosives are spot on. Get the game. Up until now, Gears of War was my favorite, and Rainbox 6 Vegas my favorite for online play...both those games will go away for a while.
