SummaryA comprehensive war shooter.
The GoodThe first thing that struck me was how detailed and HUGE the environments are. The campaign maps are absolutely immense. Being able to control any vehicle in the game was also quite ambitious. I would find myself hijacking a jeep or helicopter and just go all over the map and find little towns and just enjoy the scenery. The game is also very free in the sense you can play the same missions over and over and try different tactics and see completely different results.
The BadThe vehicle control (particularly the helicopters) is awkward and doesn't really work well with the mouse/keyboard combo. You do have the option of using joysticks, but the time to set up a flightstick for flying and a mouse/keyboard for ground fighting was just too difficult to get right. The radio chatter really is annoying but necessary, so there was really no escaping it. The Multiplayer which had the potential to replace all tactical team-based online games for me just fell completely flat. High latency and a bad "join-game" interface really made for a headache.
