"Oh boy this is budget and short!!!"
1 stars"

When I got this I was not expecting much from this game in regards to graphics and game play but right from the get go I knew it was worse than that.

Good things.......­.......reaching the end to put me out of my misery.

Alright things: heaps of blood and limbs flying off enemies, reasonable selection of guns and they all sound good. You can even modify your guns slightly with grenade launchers and different types of scopes.

Bad things: Very linier levels with bland muddy colours and no substance or realism to them. They just feel lifeless. Explosions are boring and are mostly hidden behind a bad attempt at smoke. The game took me less than 4 hours to complete on normal setting and boy was I bored. For the 360 version 90% of the achievements are only available through online multiplayer. That is all good and well but trying to find a match and one with less than a second lag is impossible. Worst of all was all the bugs in the game. I'm talking dead enemies getting stuck half way in the ground, dead enemies still blinking their eyes, and enemies just popping from out of nowhere right in front of you! There is no cover system, air strikes or other soldiers helping you, just boring old aim and shoot!

This is NOT worth the cost of a full price game. At the moment Fry Cry 2 is cheaper than this. My advice is wait until it is on sale, get it second hand or even better avoid this like the plague!

"Gore filled mayhem!!!"
4 stars"

If you love first person shooter, and lots of gore and violence, then this is a must. The original version was banned in Australia, so it must be good. i loved this game from the experience i played the game, and loved to decapitate everything i could get my hands on with a wide range of weapons, from a m249 saw to a .50cal snipper

"Misfortunate game:"
1 stars"

From the sounds of it, one would be better off, buying Modern Warfare 2, BF: Bad Company 2, Halo: Reach, etc, than this cheap knock-off. All of the ‘good things’ you can ostensibly do in this game, can be done more easily in say Modern Warfare 2. C.R.
