Very Good

Crossing the Line into the horrors of war.

This game is... unique. I will not divulge to much in the way of spoilers, but the game involves three "Delta" operatives attempting to find out the events following several devastating sandstorms in Dubai. The graphics are not half bad (not that it should even be a primary concern), and the gameplay reflects many common elements of Third-Person Shooters that one would be comfortable with. The story is good but... I won't spoil it but if you have kids, for their sake, DO NOT LET THEM PLAY THIS. At certain points in this game, there are images you cannot get out of your head. If this wasn't a game, I would need psychiatric help.

Multiplayer is not bad, featuring 4-on-4 PvP with many typical shooter modes. An addition is the sandstorm element, in which one literally bathes the area in a cloud of sand and dust, inside of which you cannot sprint or aim accurately. It happens periodically and at random, and visibility is dangerously low inside the storm, so cover inside buildings and sheltered areas is recommended. Kill-based matches end at 40 kills (low for most shooters, and matches end fairly quick depending on player skill).

The game is not bad, and it's at least worth a rent in my book. But be advised that there are many disturbing images in the storyline of the game, and as I said before, it is a VERY bad idea to let younger children play this.

Interesting story

This is a great game to rent. The story is very interesting and has some crazy turns. I think one of the best parts was the decision points because the is a definite reaction to each decision you make. The downside to the game is that the controls could use work. Aiming was a pain and i would have difficulty taking cover at times. I would recommend renting before you buy.

The the story line sucks and there is no point to the game just kill American troops ( that have gone rouge) still that's c#$. The line is want you would do in war and what lines you would cross but the poor graphics and and never ending waves of the same NPC's gets old after the first 2min. Nothing new here run gun lame game. Glad I just rented it don't know what I would do with out game fly. I would just pass on this game. Has some easy acheviments if you want to waste you 8hrs of your live to get them.
