Yet another pretty awesome TPS game to add to my long list of likeable games. The graphics are pretty solid andthe game play flows pretty well. I love that it takes place in a supposedly soverign nation. I like ths game alot. It's fun and fast paced and a great rent. if you like TPS games, you'll like this one too.
Of course there will be haters that say this game sucks because so many people find one flaw in a game and automatically give it a bad rating, but trust me the good reviews will far out weigh the bad ones.

I picked this game up a few days after it was released and I really like it. The choices that you have to make are never clearly right or wrong so that makes it quite interesting. It has a really good story and one thing that I found really cool was the fact that the main character changed throughout the game, not just through appearance but in the things he says or the executions that he performs. In the beginning, whilst performing an execution he would only do what is needed but by the end he would beat the living helll out of the downed enemy. Overall, I really liked it and I love the fact that it actually made you feel something, the only downfall was that the campaign was short. I say a rent or buy for sure

it is not a military shooter in the vein of Call of Duty, Battlefield, etc. The closest comparison in style and gameplay is Gears of War. It focuses on an engaging single player campaign, which is refreshing. Its relatively short, you could blast through it in 8 hours. The story is compelling, and as it gets towards the end it starts to take some serious cues from Mass Effect 3 (coincidence?). Decisions are a big part of the game. The controls are the only real issue with this game. The cover system is not smooth by any means. And the constant need to heal your squad mates who make REALLY stupid decisions will often result in your death. But, I have yet to find a cover based game that feels comfortable, smooth and non-linear. There are also some issues where it seems the difficulty spikes are too great and ruin the flow. This game is more for an overall experience than it is a ground breaking gameplay release. It does what a lot of great single players focused games like Uncharted and Mass Effect do, it tells a story and uses the gameplay to help you move it along.
