Showing 1-9 of 9
Very Realistic but lacking graphics and other small things

Summary: Okay, first of all, the aiming is the biggest turn down. When holding a pistol you look down the sight and the weapon sways tremendously, as if you were holding a sniper in Call of Duty. I understand it is realistic but It really messes up your shooting. I wish your would be able to hold you're breath or something. But anyhow, another thing that was lacking was the graphics. They were alright but not nearly as good as I accepted.
Summary: As someone that served in the military this game brings back memories of going through basic training. You have to learn how to do most of the same things that you would have to do in basic without all the marching and PT and whatnot. Now mind ya, this is not like most games, it is more to go and give those thinking about joining the Army what they are in for. It is more of a simulation of Army training and not a CoD or Battlefield type game.
Summary: I purchased this game as a substitute for modern warfare, (read first before calling me a complete idiot) It, sadly did not compare :( (keep waiting CoD fans) However their were things in this game that made it very memorable. Such as: the menu's theme song is VERY patriotic :). And for those interested in joining the Army, this game is literally meant for you, it has about two dozen videos about the benefits of the armed forces and some commercials and real life...
Summary: i personly think that the game was very good. the story line of the game is only training with paint rounds. but if you are going into the army or marines it will help give you a feel of what boot camp or bct is going to be like. b/c the whole game even online it tells you to stick with your team at all times and it will reward you for doing just that.
Summary: At first, I thought this game might be kinda crappy, but then I got to playing it. There are some parts that are frustrating, but in my opinion, it's a pretty good game. It COULD be a lot better though, I'm not sure if I'd recommend it though. As for teammates responding: they kinda respond, sometimes they disappear and you can't find them and then you have to restart the mission, so yes some parts are frustrating, but overall it's something that I'd play frequently.

Summary: ok first let me start off by saying that I am actually a soldier so I had mixed feelings going into this game. If you have played the one for PC you would know why. I will say this though, i am pleasantly suprised. The game has great graphics and it is not like a lot of those other shooters out there where they just run and gun. You have a squad you have teammates-use them and dont let them get hurt.
Summary: There are allot of reviews on the net for this game, so I am just adding my 2 cents I guess, but I will give the + and the -. On the + side... This game is %98 on line, and is never the same game twice. Its hard to get board when you have new people to play with every time you load the game. Game requires thinking. You can't just "Spray and Pray" like other shooters. You must work with your team to win a game. That is not the norm in a shooter.
Summary: Tough game. Don't expect to go for broke straight out of the box. To get to the meat of the game you really have to develop your Soldier on the ranges and in training missions. If you want auto-aiming and the ability to save your game just before the going gets tough, then COD4, Ghost Recon and such games are for you.
