Excellente But Could Improve

I enjoyed this game thoroughly so don't let the title fool you. I do have some issue with it in two key arenas.

The story
While not totally shallow it also really didn't have the depth that it should have considering the feel of the game play. The game cried out for a real story to be developed but in the end we just have one or two major plot twists that really leave us wondering what was all that for except to enjoy awesome action set pieces and enjoy blasting fools in the face. So end result is max monologuing as he busts caps and we switch from meaningless bad guy character to bad guy character.

This is more of my personal opinion and Im sure most of you aren't feeling the same way but there are more gamers like me than anyone wants to admit.

LANGUAGE AND BARE BUTTS
I think that we should be able to play a mature game with heads being blown off and blood flying without an Fbomb every other word. You have your buffoons in real life that talk that way but REALLY is it that necessary. God forbid you actually have characters with enough education to speak out coherent sentences without having to throw in an F bomb for every other word.
I GET THAT SOME OF YOU LOVE THIS AND THATS YOUR DEAL BUT IS IT SO HARD TO HAVE A OPTIONS MENU TO DISABLE THE ABSURD AND UNREALISTIC LANGUAGE.
same concept with random bare butts.

GAME ROCKED BUT THE STORY WAS SHALLOW WHEN COMPARED TO THE EPIC GAMEPLAY IT OFFERED.
A FEW PERSONAL SUGGESTIONS THAT A LARGE PART OF THE GAMING COMMUNITY WOULD REALLY LIKE TO SEE CONSIDERED. THERE YOU GO JUST MY TAKE ON IT.

Best Campaign i've played i a good while so i loved it and that's why i give it a 10 but the over all rating gets crushed down to like a 7.5 because the multi-player was soo wack .

Good story, but overdone on the alcoholic influences. Plenty of enemy soldiers to fight, but targeting mechanism is one of the worst I have seen. Graphics were not of the best quality. They lacked compared to Rage or Modern Warfare 2. Overall, I was disappointed, considering all the hype.
