  1. Functionally, the game was almost perfect, with only minor issues with the AI of the team members. The ability of the medic to heal the player to a certain amount, but with some damage that stays with the player through a mission or two is about as realistic as a game could get.

    The review at IGN was changed days after people started talking about how the review said it was a third person game. It ORIGINALLY said it The review at IGN was changed days after people started talking about how the review said it was a third person game. It ORIGINALLY said it was third person. Someone was told to change their review before the website was starting to be looked down upon, like some other websites. This game is good though. Could have used more enemies, but is still better than Shellshock. Full Review »
