or Three Kings for the younger set, well here's your chance. If you know anything about those movies, or seen any of the trailers for the game, you know this is going to be a very irreverent FPS. Frankly after the numerous Tom Clancy and CoD games and clones out there it's about time. My only experience with the Battlefield series was BF2 (on Xbox), and compared to that (with the switching between characters on the fly and going for a more realistic battle setting) this is nothing like that. It's also nothing like the other squad/tactical shooters out there, as you have no control over your squad's movements. However that's no reason to give this one a pass. If you like shooters this is definitely worth renting, after all if nothing else there's ton of gold to find ;)

What you do have are explosions, an almost fully destructible environment, explosions, a good variety of weapons and some vehicles (one very unique one at that, mentioned below), explosions, explosive barrels about every 20ft which yield (did I happen to mention) explosions :D The levels themselves are very straight forward. The controls are typical FPS layout so there's little learning curve. The AI could be better but is acceptable. The graphics and effects look great. The cut scenes, even though they are skippable, have been amusing enough to keep me watching.

The only reasons I didn't rate it higher are because the sound didn't really thrill me. By default you start in "Hi-Def" and you have the option for "Home Theater" (or something like that, I guess the book explains more) but even on presumably the best quality the surrounds weren't doing much. The standard walking pace was a bit slow/sluggish. Finally I also wish they designed the other squad mates to drive the vehicle while I shoot.

Despite those minor flaws, so far I have thoroughly enjoyed the game. I mean what other game is going to give you the opportunity to assault a fortified position in a golf cart :D

With all the war games out there, this game could be so much more than what it is.

I will say the graphics are pretty good, that is the best part of the game.

Multiplayer game play is extremely slow. There were times when I could run faster than a tank.

I love how you can sit at your base camp and drop bombs on the other side of the map. Gets old real quick.

Love the tanks that can kill everyone and rpgs that seem to bounch off of them.

Could be so much more.
