Not for all FPS gamers
13 April 2013
Summary: WARNING: This is not Call of Duty, this is not Battlefield, this is not the run 'n gun shooters that we have become accustom to. It is a little closer to real war. You can't get shot, duck in a corner until you heal, and then get up and start shooting. Just like in a real war, life or death can be determined with only 1 bullet.
Summary: Yes the game can be hard at times. War IS hard. This isn't a COD type game where arcade gameplay rules and you can just run around trying to get your kill/death ratio up. You get shot in the head or chest and uh... yeah you're done. I see some say if you get shot anywhere you die... TOTALLY FALSE. Sounds like a COD player that is used to getting shot 10 times and surviving.
Summary: this game is not for everyone. It is definately a great tactical FPS, tactical being the keyword. This game delivers great gameplay but at a cost. First off let me make this clear, this is a pretty tough game. Nothing compared to something like MW2 or BC2. If you are looking for those type of games then click theback button and keep looking for a game.
Summary: Excellent Game that makes you think and plan your way through missions not just blast everything that moves. Graphics are not "state of the Art" but game play makes up for it. I recommend it highly.
Summary: (updated 2011) This is not designed for the action/adventure shooters like Uncharted, Just Cause, COD, or similar titles. The realism in this game is rooted in the pace: you're going to have to take a bit of time, and in hardcore mode you're going to HAVE to devote a lot of strategy to meet primary goals. Combat is intense, and you will certainly experience a casualty in almost every exchange of fire.(your medic can completely heal you!!
Summary: After reading all of the negative reviews about this game, I began to wonder if anyone even realizes this is a 3rd installment to this game. The original, and add-on, was based on a fighting a war against the Soviets. This is a thinking man's game. Not a doom/delta force knock off. If thinking is too much, look elsewhere. This game is as fun as the original. I do not regret buying this at all.
Summary: Great game overall. Attention to detail on some things was clearly neglected such as blown up vehicles. All houses were very small and empty. Graphics need a little work. Campaign overall was pretty good. Great gameplay!! If you aren't easily annoyed with little details and are looking for a good game with great gameplay this is it! Haven't taken it online yet but will sometime soon!
Summary: This is a tough game. There is no easy setting and the gameplay doesn't really change from the normal to more difficult options except for some heads-up display items. You lead a 4-man fire team engaging in missions against the Chinese forces that have occupied an oil-rich Russian island. The game experience seems to be more realistic when compared to a more cinematic FPS (like Modern Warfare). It's more slow-paced and tactical and less "run and gun".
Summary: Game is ultimately below-standard on many fronts, but it is also unlike anything else on consoles right now. No, it's not the "milsim to end all milsims" that some were hoping for and expecting, but it delivers a unique experience, fantastic atmosphere, and lots of replay value. Lots of games experience this thing where gamers put their expectations so high, an "average" or "decent" game all of a sudden becomes "awful.
