There is always a risk when you change something in a long running game series. Sometimes it works out well, a good example would be how the Ghost Recon series has developed over time. Until Denied Ops I would have said the Conflict series was another good example. When I first saw that there was going to be a game in the series coming to the next gen of systems I was really looking forward to it. However, if you're expecting something in the same vein as the previous ones, like me you're going to be sorely disappointed.
Instead of 4 characters and a variety of options with respect to armaments, you have two characters with fixed weapons. Instead of the expected 3rd person view, it's 1st person. Instead of decent dialog (or at least believable dialog) and ability to set the sound track, you have ridiculous trash talk and hokey music. Frankly there's not a thing about this game I can think of off hand that I enjoyed.
Putting expectations aside, even for a FPS it was kind of weak. Reaction time for most everything (switching between weapon types, turning on the night vision, or reloading) was slow. At times it seemed more like a survival horror/zombie game in the sense that only head shots seemed to kill the enemy. Finally, the AI was pretty lacking too, not only with respect to the enemy, but your partner as well. Frequently even though you give the "follow me" command your partner would lag a room or two behind... or occasionally storm into the next room before you are ready.
If you really like FPSs give it a try, maybe you'll like it, personally I decided to send it back after the third level. Frankly I'm going to wait, and hope, that maybe they'll come out with another Conflict game that lives up to the name. In the meantime I might just have to break out "Conflict: Global Terror" again to purge this experience from my system ;)
Yes, the graphics are horrible, but the game play is pretty awesome, it is more realistic than most, not graphicaly. You can blow stuff up, in most games I have played, you try to blow something up, like wood, and it stays still even though it should be able to blow up. In this game, you don't find that as often. So I think its worth renting, for the game play, but if you are all about graphics, don't waste your time. All this game has going for it, is the destruction, and people need to realize that it takes up a lot of memory.

So i turned the game on expecting to see a full ps3 game. What i got was a very smooth ps2 game. don't get me wrong game play is ok. Ok that was a slight lie. This is 2008 people. We have invested 4-600 dollars in a next gen game console. This game was a let down. If i would have paid for it I would have been mad.
Graphics they were weak. The people had block like look to them. Items in rooms had no texture.
Gameplay ok. very smooth in movement. co-op is cool. scope view sucked no stabilizer button
online good. very fast paced
I have came to the conclusion that the xbox is holding the ps3 back. This is a multi console game. They are held back xbox lack of storage space. I do undrestand it is the money factor of it all. but plesas we all don t need to suffer
