Really Bad

This Game Deserves Accomodation

Its rare that so much fail is rolled into one neatly wrapped package. You've read the criticisms if you've read any of the professional reviews or any of the reviews on here. I won't waste my time reinstating the same thing. Don't even bother renting this one. I can't believe this one made it out of the development stage. Someone had to give this the okay to hit store shelves.

This game is a fun shooter, but it does have a few things that sometimes make it just plaint frustrating.
First of all, you get special enhancements, like exploding bullets, adrenaline boost, etc, but then those abilities get disabled on missions where you need them the most. If you are going to give a player tools, then let them use the tools to their advantage, whenever they choose. Some of the levels are just plain hard, even on the easy setting because you are overwhelmed with enemies that have superior firepower and you cant use your special tools. I finally just gave up at one point, after trying to get through a specific area for several hours, and sent the game back. That's when a game no longer is fun, and turns to being just frustrating. The graphics are more suited to a PS2, not a PS3, and the auto aim feature does not always work very well, especially on moving targets. None of the weapons have scopes, so you are constantly trying to kill targets that are sometimes too small to even see, and some of the weapons are so slow to reload that they are effectively useless in a firefight. Oh, another thing about weapons, you have a selection to choose from, but you can only carry two, and you cant pick up weapons in the field, so if you choose weapons that may not be suited for that particular mission (which you dont know what you will encounter), your goose is pretty much cooked. It was fun at first, but quickly just became a lesson in futility. Too bad, because it could have been much better.

This generation of gaming is just loaded with shooters. Specifically first person shooters. Well yet another FPS has arrived, codemasters destruction filled title, Bodycount. The story of bodycount is simple your an agent for the network and your trying to find and destroy the Target, yes it's called the target.

Bodycount is loads of fun. The gunplay is great and the incredible desturction in the environments adds to the experience. What really makes Bodycount shine is the audio. The audio is top ntch as explosions, guns, and building getting blow to bits sound great. Now while gameplay and sound are great there's nothing that truly stands out in Bodycount.

When it comes to multiplayer bodycount succeeds but doe nothing different from past shooters. You've got Co-Op which is fun and the online multiplayer you have team deathmatch and a horde mode. Now while both of these are fun they don't jump ahead of other games.

Overall Bodycount is a solid game. The gunplay is great, graphics are pretty descent, destruction is amazing, sound is fantastic, multiplayer is fun but nothing special. Still a great game.
