EA made this game unplayable

Summary: Unplayable. This game freezes at the main screen while it says "Connecting to EA Servers". I have looked this up and EA never updated this game for their new EULA, so rather than showing you a screen so you can accept it, it just freezes. Apparently you can get around it by accepting the EULA in another game (like 2 different games will do it, you will have to look it up to find out which ones), but you shouldn't have to do that.
Fun game but requires unnecessary work to get it running.

Summary: Because EA took down their servers you have to disconnect your PS3 from the internet in order to play this game offline. The game itself is a lot of fun as long as you do not desire any level of realism. It is an enjoyable open world shooter that is perfect for a quick round of fun mayhem. If they would release a patch to disable the online demand so that I did not have to force my PS3 offline this would be a 4 star game.
Summary: Purchased this months ago and just recently was able to play it. EA has this annoying habit of shutting down their servers after a period of time, causing many games to stop working. I got around this by disabling the internet in my PS3. Gameplay is quite like that of a runny-jumpy-explode-them-up in the sense that you run and jump around while exploding and killing non-innocents. As a mercenary, you are only permitted to kill those you are told to kill.
Summary: My 3 teenage sons love playing this game. Always is a big hit when their friends are over also. They like the graphics and ability to have their character go off on their own and act silly. Nice that I could buy a used version at a great price.
Summary: I always enjoyed this game, but still have issues once I get to a certain point of actually completing missions. Maybe I am just getting old, but they seem to get much harder later in the game.
