  1. Even the promise of blowing away the most generic of terrorists in Middle America isn't enough to make Patriots anything more than a rote, mind-numbing shooter.
  2. It's too hard to be any fun. Not hard in a challenging way - more in a stupid, dull way that has EASY opponents refusing to shoot, and HARD opponents taking perfect cover and sniping you from the moon. [July 2007, p.84]
  3. Most games are labours of love that many people have obviously spent a lot of time on. Patriots, however, feels like it was made in an afternoon by three bored computer science students. Please avoid this.
