I loved the fluid nature of the game. As someone stated in another review, switching between aircraft and ground forces is so simple and quick. The game made me so mad in a good way, because you start to attack a defensive island held by the enemy, you'll know what I mean. This was the good 'angry' - then came the 'bad' angry. The game is literally broken. After I got half way through I was looking for the marshes upgrade for days on end retracing islands to no avail until I literally hit almost every single one.
Then after pressing through that I get near the end of the game (from what I can tell) and after a cut-scene I'm locked into this stupid view and there is no way to exit. Essentially, the game is amazing errr will be amazing once the bugs are fixed, until then steer clear.
+ Seamless unit transitions
+ Great length of game
+ Difficulty = just right
+ Nice blend of 1st person & 3rd person.
+ Lack of explanation of button controls (I learned that switching b/w FP and 3rd person was done by hitting select almost by the time I finished playing it)
The games concept is awesome, should have been a 10 without a question. But the AI's path finding is so horrible that the game is not worth playing. They just got lazy at the end. The controls are so close to good, but not there. The menus are almost great, but just awkward.
Could have been a great game, but ended up one of the worst games I've played in years.

This game is so incredibly bad its hard to describe. First off the graphics are horrible,its like the original Xbox or a very early 360 game. Secondly the game-play is terrible. The controls are mediocre at its best. Its indescribably bad, I couldn't even make myself finish the first mission. The AI are completely stupid and provide no challenge what-so-ever. The game is extremely linear, they pre-made a path for you and you have to follow it, no exceptions. Your character is incredibly annoying, The people around say Sir every five seconds its like a badly written screen-play. Definitely not worth a rent or even reading the description.
