Well from everyone's bad reviews i just say that it wasnt all bad. Yes i could see why you would say that this game is not as good as most games out there right now but i say everyone has a opinion.

The Good:
Well first off is that the graphics that everyone says suck arnt that bad like the water effects are really great, the buildings are somewhat good they do have a somewhat lived in feal(I use the term somewhat lightly). The load screans are not that long to load. The critics say that If you are new to the Quake War series then you have time to learn about it online while you are waiting for the ridiculus load screen to get done. It doesnt take that long for it to load. The guns and movement are ok they do move smooth with the game and it will give a good experiance. There are more to this but i cant remember anything else.

The Bad:
Now time for the bad. The "Campain" (Or however you spell it) Isnt really one at all. And once your done with your 3 or 4 missions in each area you loose all your Battlescense's and your upgrades. The explosions could be much better. Also one that i thought that would be possible that you can destroy a little bit of the environment to bad you cant.

End:
All in all this is a good game for all of those who want somthing to ceap them buissie for a while. But for veteran Fps players (not like myself) should go along the lines of CoD4 or somthing else. This is a good game but I cant make up your mind for yourself you rent this game and if you like it buy it if not then write a bad review like everyone else. And go onto the next game to trash.

I have no idea why this game has been getting bad marks. I've played the 360 and PS3 versions and prefer the PS3 version. It has features that the 360 version does not. One IMPORTANT feature is first person in vehicles.

There are others. But what it really what it comes down to is whether you like the controllers or not. That should be your decision maker right there. The gameplay is EXACTLY the same on both consoles.

Me and my sons all prefer the PS3 version as far as visuals go for some reason. That's a moot point right there though. Games today shouldn't be judged by visuals alone. Visuals can be astounding. But if the gameplay isn't there, the game isn't worth squat. This game IS FUN.

It DOES have a single player. It's practice for playing online. But if you don't have online, then it's still good. The AI, on hard, IS FREAKING HARD!! That's another feature that the PS3 has. You can pick how accurate the AI is with weapons AND how they play AND whether or not they'll complete objectives. If you have both consoles, like I do, get it for whichever controller you like. If you have a PS3 you shouldn't be disappointed with this game. It's GameFly after all.

I rented this game for a party me and my bros where having and I had huge expectations for it and thought it would be really cool. When I rented it, I realized that I was mislead. I would give this game a 6.5, since I can't give it that, seven it is. This is just an average game with not much potential. It has good graphics and cool weapons, but the actual game-play is not that great. The re-spawn times take forever and finding a fight in the massive battlefields is very hard, and if you do find one, you die too fast to kill anything. So then you have to re-spawn again and go back to that same fight zone and hope to kill something. So this entire game evolves around specific battle spots that are so packed you die in one minute without firing more than five shots.

Pros: Awesome graphics, cool looking vehicles, sweet looking bad guys and good weapon selection.

Cons: Game-play is poor, combat is bad because you die to fast and all the fighting is always only in one spot. Driving vehicles is extremely tough. Enemies are almost invincible.

I say that you stay away from this game unless you love special strategy fighting games, I tried it and was not super impressed, but you might want to give it a try.
