Summary: This game was bought as one of the presents for my son for Christmas, and although it was advertised as new and I paid for a new game, yet when I received the game it was not sealed and the game itself had very minute scratches which indicates that the game was sold as new when it was a preowned game. I could not return it as it was just a couple of days before Christmas. This was utterly disappointing and has put me off in purchasing anything else via amazon.
Conclusion: A new single player mode included, which improves slightly to the original. But where the game really kicks off is in its online mode. Online mode sees you take a 4 man squad into the online front, with modes including Deathmatch and Team Death Match which are fast paced action packed modes for quick play. The online mode has a quick join feature for a quick 5 minute game and a decent number of servers so finding a match to join is never a problem.
Conclusion: very good game but i would only get this if your serious about the multiplayer because the single player is just multiplayer training i.e remember shadowrun, but with the added new charecters and weopons and new game modes makes a very good game
Summary: First off this isnt a sequel. Think of it as a expansion or add-on. The sole purpose of portable ops plus is to expand on that highly addictive habbit of gaining more soldiers for your teams and to that end great soldiers of the past games are now avaiable. Old snake, roy campbell, raiden, SEAL's, genome soliders and much more are available. If you loved recruiting new soldiers from the past MPO you'll love this.
Summary: This game takes the online aspect of the original Portable Ops and expands it. The online aspect on the original was a great addition, but training up your recruits was a long arduous task, this game is focused solely on making it easier to get better recruits and train them up faster to take online and battle against opponents. This game has no storyline, it's a stand-alone game which is meant for the purpose of online play.
