Solo run and gun until you zoom in anyway
on October 20, 2011
I expected a weapons heavy no frills smooth controlling FPS and for the most part that is exactly what this is.
The story is you work for a privately funded militia that sends out lone soldiers to settle battles with small time warlords. The story does expand into the scifi realm but only so far.
The single player campaign clips along as you run headlong solo into all sorts of intense firefights. Switching weapons, reloading, intel pick ups and movement all come very naturally and this is an addictive experience as the levels have tons of routes through them and you will want to best your grade by repeating them in BODYCOUNT mode.
The co-op and multiplayer should play well for those who want to share the mayhem I haven't been able to try them yet however. The game also froze up once during the single player missions, but only once after many hours of play.
For the PS3 there is a tiny install, and the top resolution is 720p, I played the demo on 360 and it looked better but seems to play smoother on the PS3, probably just finished product vs. demo. Lots of fun for the type of player who doesn't want a team slowing you down, and the intel collecting and powerup usage really adds to the level of destruction you can wreck on the environment and enemies, just plain old trigger happy fun with a bunch of detailed and different weapon options. Star off for the forced strafing on zoom mode and the one freeze up.
