2.0 out of 5 stars It is no Call of Duty... Two major flaws. March 29, 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The game is entertaining, but if you are expecting Call of Duty - Modern Warfare type quality you will be disappointed. The enemy is not nearly as realistic and they have old west shoot out type of movements. They kind of just slide into view instead of actual body mechanics. The game has had some challenging parts and it is interesting that you are in command of a team and sometimes need to tell the team to hold position while you clean up the mess rambo style or else they get themselves killed and your mission is ended. Other times your team can really save your rear, so it is definitely not likely you could complete a mission without them.

I rated the game as a 4 for "fun", but overall a 2 due to two major flaws.

1) The setup options do not allow you to change the button assignments if you are using the wii remote and chuck in a rifle type setup. I tried using the perfect shot pistol arrangement, but not nearly as usable as the rifle setup (I have a cabellas orange rifle). The trigger is not intuitive, but you get use to it. It really should have the ability to change the button assignments.

2) There is a major problem with the activation of reloads due to even the slightest movement of the wii remote during conflicts. The dumb thing will start a magazine reload just because I swing the rifle over to pick off the next enemy. I have tried both extremes of the "wii remote sensitivity" setting with no luck in fixing this bug. It is even worse if using the perfect shot pistol, because you go to press a button on top of the wii remote and it detects that the chuck has been moved and triggers a reload. Very annoying and almost enough to tell people to skip the game all together... I hope they can create some kind of software patch for this problem, but not too confident they will.

Overall I do not think this game was ready for release to the market... who in the world tested this and did not find these obvious flaws.

4.0 out of 5 stars A kid's reveiw March 17, 2013
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I think this game is pretty fun but could be so much better and even compete with call of duty! First, if they put in a tactical squad on squad multiplayer, or any multiplayer at all would be terrific. Also,if they focused better ENEMY graphics an movement would be nice, the marine's graphics are pretty nice and movement is realalistic.|And if they could put in split screen campaign and mw3 type 4 way survival. If they would make a second one and add these vital factors this game would be competing with call of duty and would be far mor popular. There are tons of games out there that are just like that.
