Good Game For It's Time

Summary: One day when i was in Gamestop, I saw this game and decided to give it a go. Now as a player of Battlefield 2 for PC, this game can't quite compare. The online is dead so you have to stick with the campaign (which is pretty good). The levels are fun, but lack a sort of excitement that other shooters have. Now, mind, this game is from 2006 so it is a REALLY good game for it's time. Back to the point, the levels are long and they are loaded down with enemies.
Summary: I've seen a bunch of reviews from children saying this is a terrible game and that the graphics are horrible. Well considering that this was released April 2006; I'd say this is an amazing game. In which it is because that was about the last time frame I played it. Of course it's not going to stand up to today's games such as BFBC2 or others, but if you have $10 and just feel like adding a good game to you collection, this is definitely a buy.
Conclusion: It's a really, really fun game, whether you're playing online or alone. Whether trying to complete the Campaign story, challenges, or working on getting promoted, there's plenty to do solo. It's great to be able to go back and re-play old missions and try to better your score, or take on that old challenge that's stymied you for years, then compare your score to your brother's and rub it in his face!
Pros: My brother and I enjoyed the 360 demo for this game so much, that we rushed out and purchased the full version for XBOX... while graphically the 360 version is far superior, the quality of the game shines through even on regular old XBOX.
Cons: Small gripe, but I didn't like that the story in Campaign mode required the player to switch back and forth from mission to mission on both the China and US sides. One moment, you're fighting for America, and the next, you're fighting against America. It was an interesting idea, but you feel like you're not making any headway in the story when you're basically harming your future team with each successful mission.
Summary: Online multiplayer is great. Multiple classes to play, love the choppers! Solo missions not so great, definitely could have spent a little more time on that. And where's the split screen seems no games have it anymore, NOT all my friends have an Xbox cmon I miss chillin with my friends in person not across town.
