Summary

A very good FPS with lots of destructive capabilities and lots of weapons.

The Good

Many weapon choices and very realistic firing action. The sounds, kickback, and rise of all the weapons is amazingly realistic. It was realistic in regards to ammunition and weapon numbers that could be carried. Destructive capabilites are amazing and should not be seen as "too destructive". The storyline was a bit lacking at times, but there was never a dull moment.

The Bad

The AI throughout the game was not as smart as I prefer, but it was not horrible either. Sometimes a bit difficult even on the low difficulty settings when you get rid of a weapon you may need in a situation, but most problems have more than one solution to them.

The Bottom Line

Very good and recommended to any who like Criterion's game or FPS's.
