The game's singleplayer is pretty much an online tutorial. Online pass means no multiplayer whats-so-ever so only rent with the intent to buy. Multiplayer is great fun plus future map packs are planned to be FREE! BIG improvements from Warhawk (fans will definitely be pleased). So my end verdict, about a 4 as a rental (single-player only) and 8 for the full game.

Overall the game was moderately fun. The campaign was pretty entertaining, storywise that is, but it never really gives you the chance to explore the defensive powers of dropping your bases. It seems like the entire thing is just the leadup to multiplayer, and if you rent it, you have to pay $10 to play online, ps3 or no. My advice, rent it for a rainy day with nothing to play, because thats as long as it will last you.
Totally forgettable sadly, because I had much higher hopes for this title. The trend continues with unaccessable multiplayer content ynless you break out the 9.99 on PSN for the online pass. What I personally find is worse is that 33% of the trophies are directly tied to that online pass or original SKU. The game itself has great potential, the build and play aspect to FPS combat was entertaining but a novelty effort at best. Worth a rent if you want a fresh FPS with Starcraft like base building.
