Summary: I'll start off with the low point; I'm no stranger to third person shooters. I've played a lot of different team-based command shooters. This game just felt a little sloppy on the execution; even by the end of the game, I would forget how to use an available command or hit a completely under-utilized mechanic. Other than that, it was a phenomenal game.
A very innovative story that makes up for the somewhat un-innovative gameplay

Summary: The value of this game is in it's story twists and in the decisions that you make along the way. Visually it's rather stunning, it makes very good use of the unreal engine and the characters are very believable. The gameplay itself is nothing that we havn't seen before from other 3rd person shooters with a cover system, with the slight variation that you an issue commands to your teammates.
Summary: I picked this up for the steep price of $2.49 during a sale. The game is alright, campaign is very linear though. There was a recent free addition to the game adding a co-op mode. The multiplayer is completely dead, so don't pick this up unless it's on sale.
Summary: To be honest, when I looked at the cover/title of this game I thought, "oh look, a Call of Duty ripoff". I only picked this game up because it showed up on a lot of peoples top 10 games list of 2012 (usually on the top 5), so I was pretty skeptical, but I gave it a chance... and oh boy, was it an intense ride. (No spoilers here) I think I should start off with the best this thing offered which is the story.
Conceptually and narratively bold, but the gameplay suffers a bit.

Summary: Dubai, the near future. Massive sandstorms have rendered the city almost inaccessible from the outside world. Just before this happened, the US Army's 33rd Battalion went into the city to help with the evacuation, and hasn't been heard from for six months. Three Delta Force operatives are sent into the city with orders to find out what's going on and report back. What they are embarking on is a journey into the heart of madness, war and death.
Summary: This is a great game only let down by it's shoddy multiplayer. It seems tacked on, and albeit the strong singleplayer component, it failed to meet my expectations for 5 stars. It is still a good game though, and I recommend it for anyone looking for a change from the run of the mill FPS.
Summary: I really like this game. I now have a catalog of nearly 300 PC games (mostly digital download across clients) and I'd say this is one of the better games in my collection that flew under everyone's radar. I'd certainly recommend it now at budget prices.
Summary: Despite being confused at some points, this game has a good history. It is immersive and interesting. The idea of a mega modern city invaded by Nature's powers is interesting. The sandstorms are a constant and plays a nice role in the game. It also has a tactical content. Three options where you can order your squad to shoot target enemy, heal injured allies or flashbang some enemy cover.
