Ok guys the single player of this game is ok not great but ok. On Gurilla difficulty it can be done in 4hrs. If your like a cod veteran like myself. The multiplayer is quiet fun once you understand how the perks work and load outs etc... The maps are well designed and fun to play on. Straight away you get used to the maps and know where you are and were you got shot from. You can't team kill on this game and theres no hardcore mode. The pace of the game is good and the guns feel good but some might have to alter the sensitivity up abit as I found the default one is abit sluggish. The whole battle points thing is a good idea and it forces you to decide weather you want to continue buying small upgrades like RPG, flak jacket, your own personal UAV or kill more people and save up for a massive tank or helicopter. I have played Black ops till my eyes bleed and now I'm tired of it. I have been sceptical about this game since I've heard about it and yes it's a cod wannabe and a battlefield buttmuncher but.......and it's a big butt (and my wife has one) ......its fun!! For me it sits comfortable between Battlefield and cod in the shooters poll. So far I haven't experienced any lag and that's with a full room of 24 players but it's early days yet. Will I still be playing this after two weeks???.............yes.

I'm not going to go into detail on how the story is almost impossible and that I don't care about it being written by the Red Dawn guy, but that it's really not that convincing in both it's drive and reasons. Next.
The most note worthy thing was the realization that I could walk in on the middle of this game and ask "Where was this level in CoD AW 1?" until I would notice the under powered weapons in both hit detection and lack of proper sound while seing the enemy AI take a bullet to the heart and not even flinch while they try to find cover behind piles of thier own dead alies.
Second off, I hated just about every one of the teammates. The guy in the lead who is always yelling at you and doesn't stop while pushing you to pull nearly all the teams wieght, keeping the poor AI from straining it's self. Half the time the girl on the team is very poorly voice acted. The others are usually baffling idiots. Not to mention that they thought it was a great idea to make a hideout right OUTSIDE in the MIDDLE of a city. Gee... Never knew that was gonna be found. The only team worthy thing I liked was the remote tank, Goliath, wich was the only thing worth mild entertainment.
Every thing else is just... Awkward. The CQC the teammates try, the invisible walls, the sneaking missions where the leader thinks its a 'great idea' to just stride a little fast, and the other MANY poor choices in battle tactics. A real military tactition obviously had no word in it's build. The resulting work on more than half this game actually seemed to lack a propper thinking through. But... Because of it's almost exact game play rip of CoD, (Controls and all) it was still somewhat playable. But with it's lack of quality and originality, it gets tiring and annoying rather fast. I also wasn't willing to play online not only because of the brain drained single player, but the whole money charge for furthering your lvl. Not even gonna start on that subject.
