very fun story mode, cept it is only a few hours long. plan to beat it the day you get it...

Online is definatly fun CEPT they got the great idea from EA to make you buy an online pass to be able to do anything with it... level cap at 5 without online pass...

worth the gameslot... eh if you have nothing better to do. i dont support companies like this that make a very short story and try to monopolize the online for renters/used game sales.

worth the rent=maybe
worth the buy=no

wow just wow. a simple 3 hours after ripping open the envelope to start this game and its done? GOD BLESS GAMEFLY for games like this. i think it took longer for the playstation to burn it to the hard-drive than it did me beating this. story was fantastic and would have made a great movie but now i see why they didn't release a demo cuz that would have been the whole game for free. multi wasn't even worth playing up to the free trial of level 5. felt like battlefield on a much lower budget. since i own battlefield i'll play that for free and save my $60 for Crysis 2 which will be a game truly worth the money...as for anyone who purchased this, i'm so sorry for you all....

Pros: An interesting view of events that shows that history and future can reflect each other. Thats about it.

Cons: Graphics seemed to be behind by a few years, it felt as if I'm playing a PS2 game. Motion of characters and gameplay are sluggish at best, not good for a FPS. Game mechanics are way off in which enemies can hit you from cover and bullets seem to pass through objects. AI soldiers on your team have a fighting capability of zero, they DO NOT kill off enemies for you, your on your own. Mission sequence are not realistic as far as strategy, theres a mission where theres 4 of you and your teammates tell you to go on your own while the 3 go else where (REALLY!!!!). Multiplayer, not even going there.

Note: I'm very surprised this game sold in stores, there were actually a lot of pre-orders. The game is only 4 hrs long about, not worth 60 dollars of hard earned money. A rent only game at most and should no where be put in the ranks of FPS like Call of Duty, Killzone, Battlefield, or Halo.
