Are you super excited to play a ds shooter? I was when i recieved this game in the mail. i turned it on and went through the menus, and then i got to the real product. in training i had fun, but throughout my entire experience with that game i had a very hard time doing precision aiming, especially because to move your sights you have to us the touch screen navigator. I completed the first level, and it was pretty good, including a few d.s. only perks and then i sent it back. i realized that it was the hardest shooter i have ever played. ever! my final words. get this game if you dont mind having to adjust your aim by touching the screen every split second. I would hope that next time they make a d.s. shooter, you canaim with your buttons.

Solid DS FPS

I had high expectations from this game. It mostly lived up to what I was expecting, except for the campaign length. There are only a few missions, all with the same goal and ending (excluding the last one, of course): trying to locate a nuke in possession by the enemies, and arriving at the scene to find they moved it to a new location. The story is very repetitive, but the gameplay is solid. They pace you very well between shooting everyone in sight and preforming various other military tasks such as driving a tank or flying a plane over an area to scan for nuclear radiation. There seems to be a large variety of weaponry that enemies drop; however I never really used any of the dropped guns because too often they had very few rounds left, so I usually used the stock gun for that mission. Grenades are nice, but they never really seem necessary unless you need to throw a flash bang to blind an enemy machine gunner. There is a knifing system implemented where if you are in close combat, you simply hit the shoot button to melee attack the enemy with your knife. This is horribly flawed; I stabbed an enemy at least twice, not bringing him, down and then giving him enough time to counter knife me, resulting in my death. I tried to play multiplayer, but there were either not enough participants to play, or they disconnected before the match started.
So, overall the campaign has a repetitive story but fair gameplay, and online is hard to connect. This is definitely just a rent, but an enjoyable experience none the less.
