Campaign Good - Online Not So Good

I really enjoyed the campaign. There was a nice balance of stealth and full on engagements. Some areas required some strategy and a few replays to figure out the optimal paths, but all scenarios were easily accomplished with some patience.

I ended up going through the campaign with the recommended weapons for the most part. I did check into the weapon customization wheel and thought it was well done and interesting for a long term player that would go through the campaign more than once.

Gadgets and grenades were often the tipping point in many scenes so I was happy to see they were well done and easily accessible throughout most of the campaign.

I had a couple of issues with checkpoints being WAY back in a chapter and requiring a long replay, but they were few and far between.

Controls were well thought out, but the control pad does get busy. This is especially true with the the D-Pad. There is quite a bit going on with the D-Pad and if you aren't precise you may find yourself lobbing a frag when you thought you were lobbing a sensor. Not a huge problem unless you are in one of the "avoid detection" sequences.

Online was a huge disappointment for those of us that rent. A pass is required to progress beyond level 5. From my limited on-line play, I didn't see much that was compelling. Guerrilla showed some promise, but it's limited to single player without an online pass.

Way too many achievements are tied to Online play.

I played the game over a 3 day period and it kept me very interested through each mission. Each mission was worked on and thought out very well in my book. Including using a Chopper Machine gun, Mounted Machine gun, taking control of a Drone which you can fly and some missions you will need the drone to detect enemy positions. You can also switch it to where you roll around on the ground with the drone. This comes in handy especially when you need to disable control panels with a static charge. With the weapon creator you can customize your weapon before each mission to just the way you like with you own optics, trigger, muzzle, and more. This comes in handy especially when you need to do stealth missions and you rather have a silenced muzzle rather than a factory muzzle. Through all of the war/stealth games that I have played I like this the best and that includes Call of Duty. All together I give this a 9/10.
