NOT better than Resistand FoM

First off it does have good graphics and the story is so-so. The motion sensing parts are fun if not a little long sometimes but the part thats bad is the controls and AI. If there is a rock...you will get stuck. Try to jump the rock and you cant. Most foliage is like a brick wall. You can have a sniper rifle...shoot a guy with it from range ten times and not do a thing. Take one step forward and fire again and he will die. Your teammates are idiotic...either they are in your way or not where you need them to be at all. Often I will run ahead and then need to back up while under fire and of course my teammate is right behind me and he doesnt move...dead. Throw a nade and 3 of your teammates will try to fetch it for you. I got pretty far into the game but after a while there was only so much I could take and just called it quits. I give it a 6 for the graphics and story. AI and controls just kill it.

Good story mode, multi-player is buggy

Pros:
- Good Graphics
- Great controls
- Nice use of motion sensing
- Good mission variety
- Many different multi-player game types
- Multi-player is fun once you get connected to a game (more on that below)

Cons:

- Short story mode (less than 8 hours)
- Trying to connect to a multi-player game is usually futile, 99% of the time resulting in a cannot connect message.

In short:

The game is worthy of a rent just for the story mode, but if you're only getting it for online play then you should look for another title.

Dude - - - playing with HDMI connection on a 50" Sony with 7.1 Dolby Surround system - - -this game rocked! The sound of bullets whizzing past to and fro bombs bursting all around close and far - - - whoa. I'm shell shocked...however I am looking forward to some serious advancement in the graphics ability on the PS3.....
