The SP campaign is fairly decent and is about average for a more recent FPS. The graphics are decent as are the controls. The story is intriguing and allows for some fun progression through Ork country with tons of ranged and melee combat. Overall the game is a decent FPS game even though it doesn't do anything that previous FPS haven't already done....which isn't necessarily a bad thing.
MP is broken, plain and simple! I have yet to join ONE MP session. The MP section reports that 20 potential games are found, but I have yet to join one. In my attempts to join a MP session, my PS3 has frozen multiple timesl
If you like the Warhammer series (Orks, Space Marines, etc.) you will have a decent time playing the single player campaign. Unless something is fixed, the broken MP reduces the re-playability of the game substantially.
Be aware that without the "online code" you are limited to the level of your online character....but that assumes you can get online in the first place.

The single player campaign immediately puts you into action and can be pretty fun, but does nothing to put it above any other third person shooter. That being said, the close quarters combat is easy to switch to and I enjoyed switching back and forth between ranged and close combat. Multiplayer was less fun. There are only two game types, siege which is similar to Black Ops' Domination, and Annialation, which is basically Team Death match. Siege should be fun. There are four control points to fight overnand combat is fast paced. However, the key to winning is your team must be first to 1000 points. You have to control all four control points to get any score. If no one has all four, the match just keeps going and going with no countdown timer. Annialation I can't tell you about because every time I tried to play it, my PS3 froze up.
