Just to start out with this game is not good for everyone. It is a classic lightgun style game since you don't do anything but aim and reload.

So that said, it is very not ready for release, the control is easy enough and yet, horrible. The aiming reticle reacts slowly to you and moves slow. In other words you can aim and shoot at one person in the same amount of time it takes them to empty a clip, and they do not fire full auto.

Cover system is alright, you use the right stick to decide to take cover or not. Course there are instances where there is no cover and these are when the slow reaction time comes to the front and kicks your hiny.

Game itself looks well enough, it's not groundbreaking but it's not simple either, basic run of the mill every other shooter made in the last few years.

Basic design is pretty good, very not what the military would face and react to the way you do in the game. Otherwise it's well thought out.

This game would be good if they had say gotten a light gun to work on kinect like they planned. Alternately made a light gun to work on the Xbox, or put this on a different console. As it stands now, this game is a waste of time, theirs and ours. It is not horrible but definitely not a good game as it stands now.

This game is terrible... where to begin. Bad graphics, Bad gameplay, bad audio, and poor playability. I spent 3 hours trying to give this game a chance and as a gamer who can usually find at least one good quality in almost any game, this game fails. You are a soldier placed in situation similar to most other shooters, you have a mission and you need to shoot your way to the finish.

The flaws: Poor graphics, poor gameplay, poor audio, poor video, no player freedom (arcade style shooter/ your only movement control is the crosshairs). Your character is controlled by AI and your path and movement choices are not your own. The aim on the crosshairs are crude and lack refinement so your crosshairs react slow and with some lag. A waste of plastic and total disgrace for an Xbox 360 game. The only reason i rate this game a 1 is because you cant rate with a negative. This game is a perfect example of why you want to use gamefly before you buy otherwise this game would have been money down the drain.

The positive: NONE
