    Pretty terrible, consol-itis, uneven gameplay, levels are pretty bland due to console release, boring story, single player experience is lacking, and sound effect are nauseatingly bad. Its like they said: "Hey! Call of Duty came out and that was great! I know- lets try to make that except dumb it down, make it more broken, introduce squad-combat even though the enemies will still only fire at you, broken A.I., and terrible graphics! Seriously even the Xbox port looked terrible. The PC part looks barely better than the Xbox one and the Playstation 2 kept it safe with some okay textures and a low resolution so it ran the game properly in most situations. Its really the best out of the series which is just a shame. Collapse

  1. No two games play alike thanks to the incredible AI who act like real human enemies. They also die like real humans, meaning that they aren't given an unfair advantage. This is war.
  2. Gamers with short attention spans will likely find all the squad management tedious, but we think it adds a much-needed dimension to a very stale genre. Plus it includes the best video game quote so far this year: "If you see something, shoot it; if it screams in German, shoot it again."
  3. It's not just its uncompromising realism or its emotive theme, it's the whole package -- great looks, fantastic sound, and a gameplay and plot structure that promotes bonding with the men under your command. Wrap that up with a slick control method and, for once, some tactical depth, and you're left with a very special recipe.
