I was so excited about this game. The demo was awesome and the ability to finally play my beloved franchise on my ps3 was awesome. This thing is FULL of glitches.

1. I have been playing for 1 hour and my PS3 not the game my PS3 has been shut down 3 times during online play. Just in the middle of the game your PS3 will beep and then go dead. 3 times in less than an hour this is outrageous.

2. Sound quality is terrible. It literally sounds worse than an am radio because of all the crackling.

Way to what could have been a really awesome game. I am SOOOO UNHAPPY!

multiplayer review

I found the multiplayer experience in this game to be absolutely unbelievable. With a few minor hitches . heres the breakdown

the good ..
TONS of destructible goodness. Buildings breaking apart nicely. The sounds of war are just what you would imagine. The weapons feel and perform nicely. Rank and unlock system are set up well , offering some very fine additions to your arsenal. Team play has a TON of potential. Vehicles of all types (land,sea,air,amhibious). Support units as well (artillery,rockets). Easy to get the hang of. Goldrush is a fun twist on the multiplayer shooter model. The smoke in the sky looks so real you might find yourself killed a few times for stopping to take in the eerie beauty of a large scale battle in progress .. and the maps are quite sizeable.

the bad ..
Voice chat support is limited to your own squad, and they are random so getting into a squad with a friend is not easy. Some weapons are a bit overpowered and some are a tad weak. only 8 maps. There is currently no mode other than goldrush (Albeit goldrush is absolutely killer fun in my opinion). Buildings dont fully crumble, they all have some areas that remain.

in closing ..
I have played many multiplayer FPS and never been very succesfull at them. This game I find myself with near the highest score on my squad any time I deliver a decent ammount of effort.

GOLDRUSH : 2 teams .. attackers and defenders. The objective is to destroy or defend crates of gold .Any member of the attacking team can harm the crates with standard weapon fire, explosives, vehicle weapons , or by walking up to it (: and placing a charge by holding O. Defenders can disarm the charge by getting to the crate and holding O. Attackers have limited reinforcements (spawns) once these are depleted the defenders win . As each set of (2) crates is destroyed the map opens further and the attackers get more reinforcements (spawns). once all the crates ( 3-5 sets per map ) are destroyed the attackers win!!

I just recently was able to have the opportunity to play this game. I have it for both systems too. I was much hoping of the game to be quite good, I didn’t think it was going to be as great as the outcome as it was! The characters are hilarious with what they say throughout the game, different kind of humor, in comparison to Army of Two. Humorous lines & good game play.

I was a little on the shaky side of how well the A.I. would be for co-op play, I was very impressed with the smoothness & not too sensitive response when it came to healing/recovering your characters condition in battle.

Game play is easy to follow, I picked up on the hidden messages throughout the game, there are secrets throughout the game, for those who haven’t played & those that have, now you know, even if you didn’t before hand.

Controls are very simple, that’s my hardest critique of any game I play & rate. Very smooth, not ultra sensitive, just enough to fly thru battle, reload, high five your men in combat & keep on blowing stuff up! It’s a very entertaining, highly fun & addictive in my view. I hope this was helpful. Enjoy!
