Good

Not as bad as some reviews make it out to be

Some of the reviews I've read of this game seem a little harsh and unwarranted. I found it to be fun and easy to use. If you are a hardcore gamer and want ultra-realism, then you're probably better off with something like Medal of Honor. But me, I didn't like Medal of Honor that much because it was too hard to use the wii remote to aim, and fire, and move all at once. In Medal of Honor I always found myself staring at a wall while someone somewhere was shooting at me. This game allows you to use the classic remote instead of the wii remote, which for this kind of game, is much easier to use IMO, but using the wii remote is still an option. All in all I gave it a 7 out of 10.

I had trouble with the aiming on this game. Then, I read some input on some of the game blogs and got the suggestion to use two hands. Actually, I used one finger from the hand I used for the nunchuk. That provided enough stability to overcome the frustration.

This is a fun and entertaining game. I'm not a diehard gamer looking for supreme challenges. That's the reason I hate Mario.

I like a moderate challenge and realistic chance of beating the game without having to invest hundreds of hours.

This game is not that bad.Everyone keeps crying about the controls. Its not a run and gun game. Its about moving slowly, secretively, and strategically. If you have problems with the aim, try holding yours hand together to steady your shot. The storyline is ok, graphics are above average, and the clip movies are cool. The only thing that sucked was the game was too short, I beat it with 7 and a half hours of recorded game play.
