    Does it matter how good the game is if the controls suck? The controls are unintuitive and difficult. I like a game that challenges your tactics, not your ability to use a difficult interface - that is just not fun. A bad interface is unforgiveable.

    What a let down. Gives me a headache to look at these graphics. Vehicles don't feel natural like Halo. They could have done better.

    My favorite online game for the PlayStation 2 thus far. It has an excellent mix of the best elements from "Battlefield" and "Rainbow Six," both of which are games I love. The singleplayer is pretty good this time around as well.

    If you're wondering if it's worth picking up, consider yourself warned if you're a newcomer -- it's a tough nut to crack. If you've been a long-time fan, close this browser window and head to the store.

    The single-player campaign is the best yet in the series.
