Overreacting. The game is not that bad.

Honestly I think people are always just hoping for CoD or Halo replicas and then complain when they are actually created, for being the very "lame" replica they asked for. The game to me was different, yeah iron sights weren't there but what it added for me....was a layer of fun that the CoD-like games do not have. They are too serious, which is fine for that, but i mean honestly sometimes i just wanna shoot stuff without having to act as if i was really there in the junk. And trust me i love some CoD and some Battlefield. To me the game was fun but, like all games, can always use improvements. It could have used more guns and gun customization, along with the option for Prone. For health you can tell btw, the screen is splashed with blood spatter and your controller vibrates. For enemy health i thought it was also fine...i Dropped over 75 enemies with headshots through the first stages as soon as I began playing. if your are looking for CoD or Halo...then go play them.

Not as bad as they say, but not that good either.

Pros:

Graphics are quite good.
Weapons are fairly good (although not too varied).
Environment is relatively open.

Cons:

Controls drift.
Shooting while aiming moves you forward.

Moving while aiming jerks you (supposed to be "peeking").

[I don't need the game to "peek" for me, I'll do it when I want to,
whichever way I want to. It's an alarming trend in new games,
programmers thinking they can anticipate what we'll want to do
and doing it themselves for us. Irritating and disgusting].

Oversized icons (blue rings, red rings) spread all over the place
(indicating points, or energy, or something?) but actually blocking
the scenery.

Loud, absurd sounds at absurd times for absurd reasons (ding-doing!,
eeeoooo-boink!, etc.).

Female voice over not quite clear or distinguishable. I missed a lot
of her comments/instructions (and there's no option for captions).

From shooting bad guys to using weapons of the future Bodycount is defiantly a game to try out. However It is worth the rent and not to buy i give this game a 7/10. the campaign feels a little short but still fun, and i couldn't help but to notice the lack of weapons in this game. It seems like the G36 is the only weapon enemies through at you. There are some big machine gunners a future solider too. I have not finished the campaign but it feels like it is coming to an end, and I still don't know what the main characters name is. There isn't a whole lot of background story. This game has good graphics the ability to destroy cover it is nice to see the surrounding area effected by your shooting. I hate shooting a window in call of Duty and it just won't break. It add some realism to the game. The game is challenging It's not as easy as other games you can't just run out in the open. You can peak around corners and shoot. Witch is a nice Feature to the game. The Sensitivity is some what low but it works(I play with 90% sensitivity). Over all its fun definitely worth renting I haven't played the multilayer yet so this my not apply to it.
